The IRS is NOT taxing your VA disability benefits. They are collecting back taxes that you admit you owe. Rather than look the other way or otherwise ignore your VA benefit income, the IRS "forced" you to include the monthly payments you receive when they figured up how much you could...View More

You can file suit but, before you do, please check your purchase contract to see whose responsibility the back taxes were. Normally, they should be paid by the seller on or before the closing date of the sale but this liability could be shifted to you as part of your purchase price. If this was...View More

He took the extra money and applied it to the expired tax debt and now says he is going to reopen that debt... View More
As most attorneys might say "It depends." It all depends on when the assessment on the tax account was made. For instance, if you owed money at the end of filing your return in 2012 and the government audits that return in 2014 and make additional assessments, then the statute runs from...View More
does he need to put her in his taxes even though ive had her all year and ive supported her myself ,we never married and i already claimed her in mines ... he claims he cant file an extension without putting her down
The issue is that the tax rate is 1.5% and the rental company takes the other 1% as an admin fee. They don’t disclose a monthly admin fee in the lease or tell you that the chandler tax is only 1.5%. I think this is deceptive but they are doing this to hundreds of renters. I’m also not sure... View More
I am behind in child support and she is using that as justification for claiming him. I am open to an agreement where I can claim him for the next two years, but hold little hope she will agree to that. What steps do I need to take to insure this does not happen in the future. Thank you for your... View More
Look at your divorce agreement. Some agreements will allow the parent who is receiving child support to claim the child if the other parent is behind on child support. If that is not the case then likely your only recourse will be to take her back to court to enforce your agreement.
My child support amount changed twice this year so there were two months that werent paid on time. But i calculated that i paid over what has been ordered for the year and have all of my receipts but my kids mom will states that i didnt pay on time and refuses to let me claim them.
The commissioner is correct. As long as you have paid all of your child support by December 31 of any given year, you can claim your child for purposes of the minor child tax credit and minor child tax exemptions if it is your year to do so.
You can also order an official arrearage...View More
Court order states custodial claims child 1 and non-custodial claims child 2. Custodial claimed 1&2. This is intentional. Currently in court to change child support. Nothing concrete yet to change filing status and/or child support.
I recommend that you meet with your CPA and make sure that your taxes are filed correctly. You cannot control what your ex does on his tax return. But you can make sure that your return is correct. If there is an audit, your ex will have to support his action in taking both exemptions. If he...View More

Turns out there are two parcel numbers for my home's property taxes and only one has been getting paid. The other hasn't been paid since 2015 (I purchased the house in August 2018) leaving a tax lien on the house. I contacted the title company which has been claiming to be working on a... View More
You were right to make a claim against your title insurer. The title insurer will try to collect from the seller. The taxes are the seller's obligation. But the title company should bring the taxes current asap even if they cannot collect from the seller. I would continue to follow up and...View More
My Ch. 7 BK closed in Aug of '16. My '16 refund was filed in Feb of '17. The trustee had my federal refund sent directly to him and is still requesting my state refund be sent. If the BK is closed, why would he be able to hold those funds and what would they be used for?
A tax refund for the 2016 tax year would represent an overpayment of taxes throughout that year. As such, you were "owed" that money, or at least a portion of it, as of the time of your filing, which makes it part of your bankruptcy estate. The trustee would use any such estate funds to...View More
Received the green card upon landing, stayed for 3 weeks, and never come to US again
Q1: I am assuming his green card status automatically canceled and NO further action needs to be done. If he needs to come to US again in the future, he can apply for a visitor visa. Can you confirm?... View More
I am not an immigration attorney, but it is my understanding that the cancellation of a green card due to abandonment does not occur automatically. While USCIS can revoke Green Card status due to abandonment, it must take affirmative action to do so. If a Green Card holder has not received notice...View More
