Thank you for your question. I'm sure it is frustrating to watch your mother go through this. The short answer is No. You do not have standing to sue a third party, your mother is the one who will be potentially injured. Also, suing someone is typically for personal injury cases.
I’m a member in an LLC. The person responsible for keeping our books failed to file Sales Tax returns for years. The NJ Department of Revenue send me a certified letter claiming that I’m personally responsible for these taxes. The LLC never paid the taxes owed. My question is can NJ put a lien... Read more »
Most weeks they took out nothing. I was claiming 0 and married. I changed it to 1 then back to 0. I now have it 0 married but take out single with an extra $20. But I don't think they are taking the right amount out for any of the taxes now that I started looking closely. I called the labor board... Read more »
The IRS changes the schedules for withholding all the time. It is your responsibility to tell your employer how many dependents you claim and your marital status--and any other info requested on the Form W-4.

She lives on the rental money from a condo and lives in the other home. We have been trying to have her put the houses in her daughters name but she wont because she uses the tax breaks from owning the homes.

Your question is far too fact specific and beyond the scope of this forum. Your situation will require an in person consultation and detailed analysis.

I bought a house in 2017, and was not told about an 80% Tax Abatement about the property that ended at the beginning of 2018. Now my mortgage and tax rates have tripled, and I can no longer afford payments. Am I entitled to anything?
Neither our lawyer, the sellers, the Title Company,... Read more »

M cousin died in 2017 and owes the IRS money. All of her assets are frozen pending the outcome of the court probate and the sale of her house which doesn't appear to happen too soon. What are my options in dealing with the IRS?
