We filed jointly, I’m afraid I’ll lose my house. I can’t see details of any agreements/payments made to IRS on IRS.gov… what are my options ?

You can set up a payment arrangement based on what you can pay but if you are unable to pay the amount due in full, that will not protect your home. You should speak with a tax attorney. Most of us do not charge a consultation fee. This way you can find out if there are any other options... Read more »

Divorce final in May 2021. Decree states that the petitioner can claim in 2021 and odd years. Respondent can claim in 2022 and even years. My ex husband is fighting me on this even though I’ve tried explaining that I claim this year.

The tax year is the year the taxes are due for and not the year they are filed in. So if the mother is awarded the odd years then they would be 2021, 2023, 2025 etc. In other words in 2022 you file for 2021 which is an odd year. You may have to get the lawyers or courts involved again if there... Read more »

Transcripts only stay available online for a certain period of time. If you did not owe any taxes for a particular year it is not unusual for them to be removed. January is the time of year that the IRS updates its systems so that may be why they disappeared. There is no guarantee that this is... Read more »

No. You would have to submit an offer. The only other way to pay less without submitting an offer is to request a penalty abatement, however, most taxpayers do not qualify for a full penalty abatement. Most people can usually only get penalties abated for the first year. I recommend at least... Read more »
