You need to pay the $250 to a bail bondsman; but please know that you are not going to get it back--because it is like an insurance premium. If the defendant fails to show up for court hearings the bondsman will have to fork over the $2,500 to the state; and then the bondsman will com looking for...Read more »
Be very careful here. If you attempt to file jointly after your spouse (or someone else posing as your spouse) has filed, the IRS will likely notice the duplicity in SSANs--and will possibly hold YOU responsible. The last thing either of you two need is the IRS coming after you.
We are on a payment plan to the University of Arkansas for an amount that was overpaid to my husband during his employment at the UofA. We’ve received notification that this debt will be collected in its entirety from our tax refund (should we get one) regardless of the fact that we have a steady... Read more »
If there was judgment on the balance owed against you it would be very difficult and costly to dispute. The smartest way to handle that would be good tax planning to ensure you have no refund coming back at the end of the year for the creditor to intercept. If you can ensure the tax withholding...Read more »
I cannot be sure but it sounds like he owes back taxes. He will need to contact the Arkansas Department of Finance to find out why if he does not know. Or you can hire an attorney and they can research it for you.
You can only use Capital Losses to offset capital gains. If you don’t have any capital gains, you can write off $3,000 per year until you either have enough capital gains to offset the remaining loss or you exhaust the whole capital loss using the $3,000 per year. In your example only $3,000 of...Read more »

If your only income for the year is $1,000 of interest, then you would not have an income tax filing requirement. The answer is different if someone else is claiming you as a dependent and the interest was over $1,050, then you would have a filing requirement.
The sole proprietor (DBA) wants to hire my husband and he would get paid for piece work. The DBA wants to withhold 40% of his paycheck to cover the taxes that might be due.

I did not buy his business just a truck. Why am I required to pay the previous owner's back taxes on his business? The business that I am wanting to start has nothing to do with him. It will be under my name and my tax information.
The asset most likely was subject to a tax lien and the owner did not have the authority to transfer the property. You can rescind sale and try to get your money back or wait for him to pay his taxes and hope the tax agency (IRS or State) doesn't take the truck in the meantime.
Usually no as you are only getting back that which you already paid taxes on. Check with your state representative for starters--has nothing to do with veterans just that it's not "income" in most states. If you had sold the car that would be different--even there you'd be looking to see if you had...Read more »
