Hi, you may want to reword your question. If you are asking why your deceased parents put property in someone's name, no one can really answer that. Since they are deceased we are unable to tell what their intent was. They may have just wanted the individual to inherit the property when they passed.
Generally speaking you must give authorization, usually through signature, for someone to file a POA on your behalf. For example, the IRS POA forms require the taxpayer sign each form giving authorization.

I have a small office building I am looking to sell and would like to advertise the tax depreciation opportunities that come with owning commercial building. Other ads don't do this and I am wondering why.

I have $1.802 mil tax liability from my short term tax gain in 2020. I am tax illiterate so I rely solely on my CPA to advise me what should be done. From my CPA’s neglect on my case, I am being charged penalty + interest at $60+ k a month. I have been trying to sell my apartment valued at... Read more »
Unfortunately penalties and interest will continue to incur until the tax debt is paid in full; it is typically just reduced by the % amount. It might be worth engaging a professional to draft a penalty abatement request on your behalf, as these things do usually require some negotiations with the...Read more »
on the ee bonds be shown as the trusts income and therefore the trust pays the taxes or will the interest income have to be shown as income on the beneficiaries taxes, and therefore be the beneficiaries responsibility to pay those taxes personally?
This is a great tax question. I recommend that you ask your CPA or tax advisor how this is handled. Tax questions are typically outside the lane of probate attorneys. However, I suspect that the proceeds will be considered non-taxable inheritance. The 2022 estate tax exemption amount is $12.92...Read more »
an amount to cover for my share of the home and quitclaim the home to my sister. Should the cash-out refinance and quitclaim occur at the same time? Do I have to pay any taxes for this quitclaim? Thank you.
You really need to consult with a real estate attorney. There are many facts missing to answer your question in this forum. (i.e. is your sister on board with refinancing? do you both, and/ or each, qualify to refinance? who lives at the property? how much are you planning to cash out? and many...Read more »
I have been on disability for over a year. I owe $20,000 in back taxes and around $9,000 in penalties and fees. Qualifier notes that I qualify for an "offer in compromise" but most websites say it takes 6 months to get it approved. I am expecting a W.C. settlement soon... But would like... Read more »
Unfortunately the IRS is still delayed when it comes to their backlog. Things such as resolution proposals, including an OIC, can take some time to be processed through their systems and assigned to a representative for review. I would say it's safe to say 6 months is a good estimate, however...Read more »

I'm sorry to say, your question doesn't make sense. Businesses are registered with the state, not registered at a property. Perhaps you can try asking your question again, but give the lawyers more information about what you need. Sorry about that!
