I’ve been provided with a w2 form for every nanny job I’ve worked for but when this job didn’t give me one I assumed they were paying me under the table. Now that they want to claim childcare will be both get in trouble or just me?
States often send out amount due notices with no substantiation. However, it's your responsibility to respond and show they're wrong. Complete bunk, but that's the way it is. Otherwise you find yourself in a situation where they just start taking your stuff; i.e. bank...Read more »
My spouse was not working in 2019, so we needed a premium tax credit to pay for health care coverage. I also converted an IRA to a Roth IRA (apx value: $80k). I understood I would have to pay taxes on this amount, but I did not expect this type of income would be counted towards my ability to pay... Read more »
in 2005 we (My wife and I) bought a house and lived in it from 2005 till 2008 just after I went into the Army. We were outside the driving area for the base I was stationed at. We turned the property in to a rental and it remained a rental till we sold it in 2018. We used the tax exclusion for... Read more »
There is an ability for military personal to suspend the personal residence exemption but you have to be deployed during the suspension period. There's nothing in your question that makes me think it would apply, but I don't have all the facts.
It's probably not going to work that you have...Read more »
The person that is sending the money is the father of the US citizen, but he is not an expat of the US. He was born and continues to live outside the US, but does come to visit the US only around 1 month per year. So, he should pass the IRS “substantial presence test “, right ?
How is this legal, given the fact that Lyft does not disclose the full fare amount to the driver? Drivers are "agreeing by contract" to pay taxes on an unknown amount? How is this even close to legal? If state tax is included, a driver can pay more than 50% of their actual income to taxes, in some... Read more »
Once the property transfers from the estate to you it's just like any other property you own. Land can be liened and auctioned to pay debts. It's not usual to do it for student loans but they can. It's also heavily dependent on state law. If you receive a notice of foreclosure, or one is posted on...Read more »
Many churches have 'worship teams'—teams of musicians who play many or most Sundays per year, and I understand how they would probably need to treat those musicians as employees. The church in question, however, occasionally has professional musicians from local orchestras play music on Sunday... Read more »
I cofounded a S corporation in Delaware a few months ago and left the company as the board member and employee after a couple of months due to disputes with my partner. I still kept the shares (50%) because I was not compensated for the work I did. The company was a start-up and did not have any... Read more »
Depends on what's in the operating agreement/by-laws. What was the underlying entity that was S-elected? S-corps cannot be created at the state level, you have to have a registered entity upon which to elect S status. The IRS will use the entity law to determine owner liability and responsibility...Read more »
I believe i was told by the court house that if couldnt finish paying tickets by tax time then it would come out of tax return Im just wondering if they take care of it when you file or when the money comes
The state can't intercept your federal refund. West Virginia will offset your state refund if you have unpaid fines. They have to send you a letter and then wait 90 days. They're supposed to anyway. They take out an extra $25 for their troubles. If this is a concern I would file an extension and...Read more »
Daughter was hired to work in a salon (eyebrows, eyelashes, makeup). Signed a "contract" and it said she was an independent contractor. Yet, she was paid an hourly wage, under complete control of her boss for hours, etc. My daughter did not pay any rent. She used the owners supplies. She was... Read more »
They cashed the check for $202 last March, but keep sending letters that don't respond to questions I ask, and provide no justification of the amount they're demanding. Specifically, the tax rate on the 2017 return was about 10%. The corrected tax they claim would use a rate of about 93% on the... Read more »
I'd suggest calling into customer service directly. https://www.irs.gov/help/telephone-assistance
Ask them what's going on. There are fake notice letters out there, but if you're mailing automated collections they don't always respond. You'll likely hear from a revenue officer eventually....Read more »
If the decree was issued prior to 12.31.2018 and there was no provision for the alimony being non-taxable it is deductible by the Payor and income to the Payee. I'm ignoring accelerated alimony wherein the alimony is front loaded and trails off after three years, that's a separate issue....Read more »
