The place that did my taxes filled my taxes out wrong.
I provided documents that I went to school at DVC and contra costa medical career college and they put Sacramento state and the wrong education credit. I am suppose to be getting lifetime student opportunity credit.
You can start by going back to that tax provider and explain what they did wrong and ask them to file an amended return for you to correct their mistake. If you still owe tax, and are assessed a penalty and interest, there are steps you may be able to take to avoid the penalty and interest.
You should quickly find an employment law attorney to discuss these issues. You may well have a valuable claim, depending on what kind of employee rights were denied you as a result of the misclassification. You may also have a claim that would allow you to raise the misclassification and other...Read more »
In October 2018, I sold my California LLC which only asset was a boat (wholly owned by my single owner/manager CA S corp). Licensed yacht brokers handled the sale through a maritime attorney. The deal was a straight up deal, llc for cash. The same maritime attorney represented both buyer and... Read more »
You are sailing in unchartered waters--at least for me. In addition, there are some important facts missing from you question that prevent lawyers from advising you. Finally, competent lawyers do not answer questions about what might happen in the future. Too many possibilities.
I am a disabled senior and my wife works part time. We were notified we owe taxes to IRS & CA FTB for 2014. Both tax agencies have tacked on penalty's and interest. If we pay them both off this year in full, what can we deduct off this years taxes? All of it? Just the tax that was owed and the... Read more »
Take a look at IRS Publication 523 to review the US tax treatment. The gain can be exempt if you meet the requirements and the dollar thresholds. That publication mentions that the prior use of space for rental does not disqualify exemption treatment if at the time of sale the property is used as...Read more »
The two of us are currently the only employees of our business, and only took a single paycheck of $100 each to set up the payroll system so it would be in place when we have employees in the future. We have since decided to delay any hiring, and will not be taking any compensation ourselves, for... Read more »
This is a question best answered by your tax accountant. While owners can agree to not take a salary from the business there are tax consequences associated with that decision that you need to measure against the relatively small administrative charges you wish to avoid paying.

An EA was paid to file for tax forgiveness on my behalf. He did not. I am now being garnished. He is not answering my inquiries. I also want to initiate legal action against him; but the tax issue first!
Use the tab called "Find a Lawyer" at the top of every page here on Justia to find competent experienced business or tax lawyers who might be able to help you. If the tax issue is a federal tax issue you may not need a California lawyer.
My mother has property in California that is essentially worthless (no house, just land), but she is still paying her HOA dues and taxes. When she passes, can I close out her estate and abandon the property completely, or can the HOA and tax collector force me to pay dues and taxes? If so, do I... Read more »
I assume there was a shipping receipt or written contract somewhere in this transaction. Reading the contract may answer your question. Transfer of title is a very complicated subject. I would seek help from a Maritime attorney in your area.
I worked for the person contracted to do this job and he couldnt contact them at tax time so he pretended to be someone else to get my ssn. I did cash some checks from him cause he claimed he couldnt withdraw the money and i had acheck cashing account. i cashed them for him to pay the people... Read more »
The county wants to auction the house for unpaid taxes. I am a veteran and on a fixed income. I want to stop the county from selling the property which I consider mine because my sister left it to me if not legally then orally. What can I do?
Unless your name is on the deed or unless you have some other written document going to prove your deceased sister's intent, at this very late point in the foreclosure process your best (perhaps only) bet might be to attend the auction and bid on the house.
He is neglecting the house, is running out of money to pay taxes, and yet refuses to sell, even though he will get ALL the proceeds (I promised my mother) and the sale would be over 800,000$. I want off the ownership and he can make his own decisions.
Yes, you can give your interest in the property to whomever you desire. However, you can also sue your nephew and probably force a sale that way. This might be the best way to sever ties with your nephew because the net amount of money received from the forced sale would then be divided equally...Read more »
I'd like to buy my uncle's half of the house that he and my mom own together, which is currently a rental property. It would become my primary residence. I'm wondering how the property taxes would be reassessed (since uncle to niece doesn't qualify for the reassessment exclusion). Only half of the... Read more »
Although I do not practice in California, unless I miss my guess the taxing authorities will continue assessing taxes on the entire piece of property because they are only interested in collecting the taxes and do not care who owns it. You might want to engage the services of a real estate lawyer...Read more »
