Q: Who claims child for 2021 tax season?

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 »

Otherwise hire an attorney to figure out what is going on. It may not be a Citation but a Notice of Suspension from DOS due to an... Read more »

Q: How do I sell a 0.26 acre lot left behind in Pueblo County, CO after my parents’ passing?

I have two sisters that want me to sell the lot and split it three ways. I don’t want to be liable for the taxes in their entirety after the sale. What kind of document do I need from them before I can sell the lot? How do I avoid the entire tax liability? Neither of us want the lot.

Thank you.

Q: Im a partial owner (with a parent) of a property and would like to become a sole owner. Is it taxfree

Elaine Shay answered on Jan 20, 2022

If your parent intends to make a gift of his or her interest in the property, depending on the value of the gift it may be subject to gift tax. However, New York does not impose a transfer tax on gifts of real property that are made without the payment of consideration.
