Q: I moved out. My before my address changed my roommate got my tax info and is withholding it. Is it a crime? whats to do?
I lived with someone for a year, and it was awful. So i did everything i could to leave and was successful. They basically are the type of person to, if was granted power in any way, try and force me to apologize for not helping her out or doing what she wanted. So I did not get my address changed in time and assume that the mailing process is legal but now shes got my mail and told me she does. She is now intentionally ignoring me and is withholding my tax papers and other mail in what i assume is another attempt at a power trip against me. Thats the back ground.
A: The easiest and less stressful way for you to get your tax documents would be to request them from your employers, etc. again. You can also request them from the IRS but usually they are not available until very close to or after the filing deadline so you would need to file and extension request and pay any amount due prior to April 15th.
