Honorable Judge Berryl A. Anderson, chief judge of the DeKalb County Magistrate Court, was the principal speaker. She was joined by Ayonna Johnson, director of legal services of the Women’s Resource Center to End Domestic Violence, Toni Roberts, executive director of the DeKalb Volunteer Lawyers Foundation (DVLF), and Limia Obadi, domestic violence program manager of Tapestri.

October Family Law Section Breakfast Recap

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

The Family Law Section of the DeKalb Bar held its monthly meeting on October 5. The guest speaker was Lynn Pasqualetti, managing partner of HLM Financial Group based in Decatur, Georgia. Ms. Pasqualetti presented on techniques for obtaining Third Party Wage Income Data through the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The IRS uses third-party information in reporting income and assigns the income to the tax payer’s social security number. Ms. Pasqualetti spoke about the benefit of obtaining IRS Account Transcripts to review all of a tax payers income that may not necessarily be disclosed when the taxpayer only reports their W-2 income. The Third Party Income can be reported due to many sources such as credit and certain electronic transactions, securities and investment income. Ms. Pasqualetti informed the section on the use of IRS Form 2848 which serves as a Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative for the release of tax information. Form 2848 can be instrumental in true income verification of taxpayers.

Ms. Pasqualetti is a fount of financial knowledge and is happy to assist in fielding financial and tax related questions. Ms. Pasqualetti’s email is lynn@hlmtax.com.
