A spouse is only liable for taxes that are filed jointly with their husband or wife. Having said that any assets that you hold jointly may be subject to lien or levy. For example, if you own a home together the IRS can seize your half of the equity in the home.
me and my fiancé were asked to move here from Florida to run a warehouse for the company we work with. we just recently found out that Kentucky has state taxes but our company has not been taking out state taxes on our paychecks.

Check with HR to see what address they have on file for you. You're likely still listed as living in FL so you haven't been setup as a KY resident for payroll. Another problem could be that you need to update your W-4 for state withholdings.

I would review the documents provided by the program under which your housing is subsidized. Just pull the documents directly and see what they say. Then if you feel that the landlord has requested too much you have documentation to backup your claim and contact information for the organization...Read more »

In light of the moment-by-moment changes being made to federal, state and local laws as all the governments try to handle all aspects of the Corona virus pandemic sweeping the world--and all the new financial tricks going out of Washington--I have decided not even to try to answer any of the scores...Read more »
It depends on what you sell it for. If you sell for more than what you purchased it for plus any adjustments (adjusted basis) then you'll have capital gains. If you gift it you'll have a reporting requirement but likely no tax will be owed on the transaction. If you sell it for...Read more »
That depends on a number of additional factors. An LLC is almost always better than nothing. And the S-election requires an entity to be accepted. So the LLC is essentially a foregone conclusion. The question becomes to s-elect or not.
That question becomes first an issue of eligibility....Read more »
It's going to depend on the language in the settlement. That will determine when the property passed, whether as a gift or as part of the estate. If the settlement did not address the issue then I would think the gift would stand as completed and carryover basis would apply. It would be...Read more »
He kept state aid in his name, denied me foodstamps and insurance when they were with me because I could not afford an attorney. He was unemployed and filed for tanf and the state pursued me.

Depends whether that child support order requires payment through state of KY it directly to him. If payable to state, they may intercept your taxes. If the support is payable directly to him, you will probably your refund.

He owned a home that is in foreclosure and he owes approximately $2,500 in bills. He has no money in the bank and not assets. Do I need to file a tax return? He would likely get a small return but figured that would go to pay the bills anyway so wasn't sure if I had to file.
No one is OBLIGATED to begin probate for anyone -- particularly when it makes no financial sense to do so, If the CREDITORS want to try to get at whatever assets they can then THEY will have authority to file probate, deal with the IRS etc.
If you have the original will however, state law...Read more »
