I am his daughter. I started receiving back tax stubs about 6 months ago and just got a letter of intent to auction. She refuses to sell the property back to our family (we got the land in the Okalahoma Land Run) and refused to pay the taxes. Shouldn’t the resident of the property be responsible... Read more »
I am assuming that the wife has a spousal homestead in the property. You may want to protect your interest by paying the taxes to prevent a tax sale. You would be entitled to contribution if the property later sells. While I agree that she should pay the taxes,...Read more »
When my husband and I filed Married-Joint for the first time we found out that he owed back taxes from a previous marriage. The taxes were from 2011! He was injured on the job so he had not been working from 2012 - 2016. So when we filed it took all of our tax return to put towards that debt. His... Read more »
It sounds to me like your husband must not have filed any tax returns for 2011, nor during the five years he says he did not work, which would trigger an IRS audit. If his ex wife also failed to file in 2011, she would also be in the snare with him. Sounds like she may have filed without him...Read more »
The fair market value is determined by an appraisal or by relying upon a Realtor you can trust to set the price to ask when selling the house. When the proceeds of the property are split between the heirs, they will each pay tax on their amount they received. Since there was no probate no estate...Read more »

According to the IRS, you can claim someone as a dependent if you provide for more than half of their support. But, this rule can be modified if there is a divorce decree or some other governing document.
Assuming that you meet the requirements, I should warn you that it gets more...Read more »
All work will be performed in TX without me ever traveling to OK. My understanding is that OK receives a copy of the 1099. If I am not responsible for OK taxes, I don't want to end up in a dispute with the OK taxing authority.
There was a order of protection and my wife and her ex could not contact one another. The decree was final in 2017 and he was claimed by his dad in 2016 for 2015 when they were apart. My wife not her ex claimed their son in 2017 for 2016. Who is can claim their son for 2017?
I have worked on several of these cases in the past. Usually, the Judges do a fairly good job of making their instructions clear. If not, the Judge gets to see the case again. Not something they are anxious to do.
If it is not clear, I would have your wife's lawyer contact the ex-husband's...Read more »
We’ve researched definitions of what makes an employee. We know they’re not in stone but we feel they meet enough we should be employees. It’s for a Trivia game nationwide company & we host trivia games at bars. So: they tell us when & where to work. They supply the items needed to host a... Read more »
Be very careful. I have lots of folks who walk in with an online power of attorney. I estimate that about 20% have serious errors. These may be drafting, witnessing, signing, and creating unworkable situations. Most attorneys will provide service on a flat fee basis or may provide you with the...Read more »

Therefore, if your AGI is $100,000 you will be able to deduct all medical expenses that exceed $7,500. Anything under that...Read more »

Sorry, but adultery is still a felony in Oklahoma, punishable by up to a $500 fine and/or 5 years. See 21 OK Statutes § 871. Most District Attorneys are not interested in prosecuting these cases however. They're already overloaded with more serious crimes.
It depends on why you are saying the lien is non-collectible. If it is past the statute of limitations for collection, the lien will usually have expired and it will remain on your credit report as a historical bad debt item until it ages off. If you are referring to the more likely reason, that...Read more »
That depends. You might have a claim for adverse possession if you have occupied it for 15 years. Paying taxes, in itself, does not bestow title upon you. I'm guessing that the property belonged to a family member. You may need to file probate to clear the title.
