Once the property transfers from the estate to you it's just like any other property you own. Land can be liened and auctioned to pay debts. It's not usual to do it for student loans but they can. It's also heavily dependent on state law. If you receive a notice of foreclosure, or one is posted on...Read more »
On January 31, 2019, we were issued a refund check of $1644.81 from the state of Louisiana. Hesitant, I held on to it until it was almost void. A year later, I received a letter stating that refund was issued in error and we have 45 days to pay it back. Am I responsible for their error?
Unfortunately you do have to return the funds if they were issued by mistake. If they are also trying to assess penalties and/or interest I would push back on that hard. Also, verify it's really the state tax authority and not a scammer. The taxpayer always ends up paying for the governments...Read more »
We did file and we owed for 2008, 2010 and 2011. However we also owed the IRS for this years and we were dealing with getting a resolution with the IRS. We have not received anything from Louisiana Department of Revenue for all these years, until this week we received a notice that our drivers... Read more »
The answer to this type of question generally depends on whether you filed a tax return. If you did not file a return, the statute of limitations on collections generally does not begin and there is no time limit, although the state department of revenue may have guidelines to how many years back...Read more »
Although it will be very difficult for you to explain how you managed to buy a mobile home 19 years ago and never--even once--heard about the annual property taxes that everyone else in the mobile home park has been paying for 19 years, I still think it is worth a shot. Perhaps the taxing...Read more »

No. Under Louisiana law, property is conveyed only in 1 of 3 ways: by a deed (if someone is still alive), by succession (either by Will, or default state law for distribution of one's estate), or by adverse possession (owning as owner for a certain time period). If you are talking about "family...Read more »

They sent me a letter asking if he was still in school his benefits would be paid up to his graduation date. Which I did and they did. After graduation my son went to work. Imagine that. Now the good part. SSA wants him to pay the three months of S/S he received in 2016 cause he went to work and... Read more »
The SSA allows you to ask for them to forgive an overpayment IF (1) the overpayment is not your fault and (2) making you reimburse the overpayment would create a financial hardship. They are generally fair at granting this relief from my experience. Your son needs to contact the office listed on...Read more »
Yes. There are a lot of other factors at play, however. Was the Uncle married? If not, did the Uncle have only separate property? No children? If the uncle's siblings are the only heirs, they may be able to take the property via succession - depends upon solvency of the estate, but a hearing...Read more »
As co-owner you are jointly responsible for the taxes. Your agreement with your co-owner is not something the taxing authorities are a party to and they don't care about it. They can look to either of you or both of you to pay the taxes. And if you don't, they can attach and sell the property. Your...Read more »
