During Spring we frequently see a flurry of user questions regarding taxes, tax codes, and tax law on both the state and federal level.” - Bahman Eslamboly, CEO, LawGuru, Inc.

On February 17, Congress passed a bill that President Obama is expected to sign that will extend the payroll tax cut for approximately 160 million workers through the end of the year. The tax cut reduces the tax burden for most employees by 2%, which will translate into an average savings of about $1,000 per family according to CNBC.
LawGuru.com has a network of attorneys around the country that are helping individuals understand what this tax break means for them. LawGuru.com is a web service that allows a user to submit a legal question to attorneys licensed to practice in their state and who practice in the appropriate area of law.
According to Bahman Eslamboly, attorney and founder of LawGuru.com, “So far this Spring we have seen a flurry of user questions regarding taxes, tax codes, and tax law on both the state and federal level.” Mr. Eslamboly went on to say, “Although online services like LawGuru.com can be incredibly helpful to help navigate the confusing world of taxes, some questions about personal finances should be kept private and confidential and would benefit from being protected by attorney-client privilege.” In these circumstances, users are encouraged to pay a small attorney fee and enter a confidential conversation with an attorney. These conversations still take place online through LawGuru.com, but are never displayed to the public. The fees are only collected if the user accepts the attorney's answer as being sufficient.
LawGuru.com is just one of a number of online services that offers attorney answers to users' legal questions. The growing industry is making it easier than ever for people to understand how changes to laws, regulations and tax codes on the state and national level impact their daily lives.
