Once the IRS attaches someone's Social Security Account for non-payment of back taxes, the lien will remain attached to the SS Account until the amount of back taxes owed--plus all assessed late penalties and interest owed--is repaid in full. Moving will not change anything.
This makes no sense but let's say someone is 64 and trying to help their future social security. They have a failing business and process payroll for themselves every week. They pay all taxes like they are earning income, but they never cash their pay checks. They are process payroll... Read more »

on his personal account which looks like laundering money thing. What is the international law that forbids me to proceed in the repayment of the french corporation into the owner's personal account? Thanks in advance for your prompt answer.
I can think of no "international law" that prohibits you from refunding as directed; however, state and federal statutes against money laundering might well be triggered if this is this person's "modus operandi". Has he requested this method more than once? A pattern is...Read more »
The law of that other state, not the law of Florida, would apply. But if the law there is anything like the law here, they might garnish the account and then the owner would have to prove the source of the funds and that such funds were exempt from execution.

And since your husband was alive when the stimulus legislation was enacted (mid-January), you can keep the $1,200 earmarked for...Read more »

You seem to be confused about a few things. If you are named as a personal representative in her will, it doesn't mean a thing until you file a probate petition with the court. Thus, if you thought you would avoid probate by executing wills, you were mistaken.
Warning: The fact that you claimed your adult son as your dependent on your tax return for 2018 does NOT mean that he did not have to file taxes himself. That decision is based solely on how much taxable income your son received from all sources in 2018. The standard deduction for individuals...Read more »

No. You made that decision long ago, when you followed your lawyer’s advice, did not file your tax return for 2019 and cheated the IRS by allowing your aunt to claim your son. BOTH of you need to sit still.
