iii) Your understanding of the area you work in

iv) Your business is managed as a business and not just in any other form

The IRS actually knows when you are just playing with them; however they will work with you to listen to your situation if you are not kidding them.

There are those who will tell you that they are experts with vast years of experience however in reality they are not accredited and most of them are not aware of what they are talking of.
