You should speak with the caseworker. It sounds like you may not have received notice of the garnishment case so did not have the opportunity to respond. If that is what happened, and you have good cause for not responding, then you might be able to have the garnishment case reopened. If you are...Read more »
We were handed 4 year of very steep penalties tried to be very honest with the state of Colorado but they said we still have to pay 44000 in penalties. Is there something that a lawyer could do to help us??
Your penalties may be dischargeable in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy depending on how old they are, whether you filed the returns on time and whether a tax lien was recorded. Other factors need to be considered (e.g. your income, assets, other debt, etc.) Check with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer as...Read more »

You will need to submit evidence showing that this year you are earning significantly more despite only having earned $8,000.00 on your prior return. A qualified immigration lawyer can assist you in this...Read more »
There is no constitutional requirement for representation prior to taxation. Washington D.C. residents have no representation and they still pay income tax. If you travel through a state that you don't reside in you are still subject to that's state's sales tax even though you have...Read more »
Yes. You are a tax resident, not a permanent resident, if you reside in the U.S. for more than 183 days, so if you owe taxes, then you are required to file a Federal tax return. In addition, this filing can help confirm that you resided in the U.S. should it be necessary to prove it.
Contract Request: if I understand your question, you need a Purchase Contract (?) for real estate (?) with two buyers, and then a subsequent assignment of that contract (?). We offer Fixed Fee for transactional work of this nature. It would be less than $1000.00. But I'd really need to get a...Read more »
It is impossible to say without additional information. This is also something that should not be discussed in an open forum. You need to stop looking for answers here and contact a tax attorney where attorney client privilege will apply.
If the person is audited then they can receive up to a 50% penalty depending on whether or not the IRS considers it fraud or not. That is on top of all the other penalties and interest that will also be assessed. I cannot tell you whether or not the IRS will audit a taxpayer without a lot more...Read more »
This is not the type of question for this format. She needs to talk with a tax attorney directly where she will have attorney client privilege and everything she says will be confidential. Most of us offer a free consultation which can be done over the phone. Just tell her to stay away from the...Read more »
How is this legal, given the fact that Lyft does not disclose the full fare amount to the driver? Drivers are "agreeing by contract" to pay taxes on an unknown amount? How is this even close to legal? If state tax is included, a driver can pay more than 50% of their actual income to... Read more »
It all depends on what is being deducted from the Lyft driver's gross income. If it is something that the employer is required by law to deduct, then most likely the Lyft driver will need to report the gross amount, not just the net amount received by the driver. That of course is true of all...Read more »
No, you can't use USCIS number for the purpose of your federal tax return. You have to apply for tax ID with the IRS for your wife and child or just wait until their I-765 are approved so they can receive SSN.

You should speak with a tax lawyer who can clearly explain the law to the IRS and provide proper documentation to obtain your refund, assuming you qualify. That’s a lot of money to leave on the table. Hire someone who will do the work on a fixed fee, contingency basis so you get that money.
