My soon to be ex husband begged to file tax return jointly in January as soon as he got his tax documents. I expressed I didnt trust him, and that he would steal money from me. He told me I was crazy psycho for thinking that. He sent a written email stating he would write a check for 50% of our tax... Read more »
No, it doesn't sound right. You filed a joint return, you are entitled to a portion of the refund. The joint return is marital property. You should consult with an attorney since he has one. Your attorney can see to it that you are treated fairly and equitably. Good luck!
I live in Florida. My dad passed away, last year my sister sold his home (also in FL). My proceeds of the house sale was approx $15,500. My annual gross income was $28,000. I haven't received a 1099-S in the mail. Do I owe taxes on this? Could not find out how to file it on TurboTax. Numerous... Read more »
You have to determine the gain on the sale, not just your proceeds. Then you'll want to report it either way. If your income is below the standard deduction, or if the holding period was greater than one year your long term capital gain bracket may be zero. TurboTax is not going to be able to...Read more »
This question makes no sense. Just let me say this: everyone in America is supposed to file a federal tax return if they have income over $600. This includes people on Social Security. Having a student loan is irrelevant.
What about sales tax reporting? When and how do I do that? Read about reporting something quarterly. Is that if I make more than $400 yearly. I'm purchasing baby equipment to rent to traveling families. I use the company BabyQuip as platform and use their insurance. They only give a 1099 form to... Read more »
You forgot to mention the most important fact: which entity is earning taxable income? (Note: Once that fact is known other important questions arise. That is why you desperately need professional advice and assistance.)
Hello, I have an E2 visa and live in FL. My business is an S-Corp and I wish to close or transition it into an LLC, as the taxation featured of LLC suite my needs more than S-corp.

Basically this guy is claiming that you can write off a car lease 100% as a business expense assuming the lease is made under the business name and as long as you create an agreement between you and your company stating that if I cover the cost of maintenance, insurance & upkeep, then the company...

I was sent an income under reporting notice by the IRS for my 2017 1040. The 1099K was reported to IRS from a credit card processing company I never did business with. I called the company and they admitted I had no account with them. The EIN on the 1099K belongs to a former payor. How do I fix... Read more »
Due to health problems they are having financial difficulty. They have a bank issued credit card with $24,000 in debt. I've read that the bank can't touch their SS but my question is can they come after other assets like their house which they have a mortgage on or their car which is the only car... Read more »
Congress defined a Public Office in Section 7701(26) as one that doesn't include the words of a "private enterprise." The 78 Congressional Record's recorded testimony of F. Morris Hubbard's (senior legislative draftsman of the Treasury Department) explanation in front of Congress in 1943 Volume... Read more »
Rather than trying to "prove you wrong" I would rather invite you to attend the next meeting of the Sovereign Citizens of America, Inc., to be held in the City Hall in Lubbock, Texas, on all hallows eve (called Halloween in some places). I will be standing in the back, watching and listening.
For federal taxes, I would start with the Internal Revenue Code and the regulations enacted pursuant to that. You might go to IRS.Gov to see what is available there. The IRC is also a part of the United States Code (Title 26), available at various sites online. And then case...Read more »
