Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Yes, in fact she has more than the right to refuse. Why? Because the administrator of an assisted living facility does not have the authority to do what you asked her to do. Moreover, the administrator is not being paid to write official letters to the Social Security Administration or the IRS for residents. If you have POA over your uncles financial affairs then you should have the power to write the letters yourself; just remember to include a copy of your POA.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Yes, you can give your interest in the property to whomever you desire. However, you can also sue your nephew and probably force a sale that way. This might be the best way to sever ties with your nephew because the net amount of money received from the forced sale would then be divided equally between you and your nephew. Hire a lawyer.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer No one on this planet could possibly answer this question. You are seeking a definitive answer to a question about death taxes, which are subject to legislative change day by day--at the whim of those in power in Washington. Why worry about things that may or may not happen between now and the year 2026--when you have plenty to worry about today.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer This question is confusing as written. It appears you are saying you failed to pay Connecticut personal property tax on your car(s) for the past 15 years, then moved to North Carolina; and now that Connecticut has started dunning you for the taxes, you are asking lawyers how to settle? Is that right? If so, take about $1,500 of the $6,000 you "saved" by not paying your taxes and hire a competent lawyer to negotiate a settlement with Connecticut for you.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Whoa Nellie; you are allowing the wagon to get out ahead of the horses. Most lawyers answering questions here on Justia are very experienced, and give excellent advice about real problems; however, none of us use crystal balls to foretell future happenstances. This is especially true in business situations, where many new start-ups have no idea what the real business world is all about. In short, all your important small business questions should be directed to your business lawyer (or CPA, if...
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer As they say at the opera, "It ain't over until it is over." They also say "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't."
So, rather than worry about whether or not to "declare with the IRS" right now, and rather than worry about whether you will have to "pay inheritance tax" you would do well to employ a competent lawyer RIGHT NOW, before giving anyone on planet earth your social security number, banking account number and related personal information.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Look closely at your divorce decree and then call you divorce lawyer--again. If the decree says you get the house, then you get the house and everything that goes with it.

Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer This question involves too many very important interrelated questions to expect definitive answers from lawyers on this forum. You should consult an immigration lawyer and a tax lawyer because either area of law could affect the outcome in the other area.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer If the state of Alabama is coming after you for $154,000 in back taxes you must surely have more than sufficient resources to hire a very competent lawyer to help you get out from under the hammer above your head. Stop asking for pro bono help on this open forum. Try searching through the many profiles published by Justia to find a lawyer who will help you.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer You are advised to hire a lawyer to help you inform the IRS of these important circumstances. If you are not a co-borrower or a guarantor on the student loan debt you have no legal obligation to repay your husband's student loan. However, if you and your husband are co-owners of any real property, bank accounts or other assets you should ask you lawyer to help you protect yourself before more trouble appears at your door.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Many companies use two separate programs when creating paychecks and W-2 forms; and this is especially true in companies that use third party payroll companies and third party CPAs to prepare 1099s and W-2s. In most cases the difference is too tiny to be concerned about. When choosing which one to us, follow the law and use the W-2 or 1099, because your employer must file a copy of that form with the IRS. They do not have to file paycheck stubs.

Frank Huerta Jr's answer An asset held over one year is treated under the long term capital gains rate. Assets held under one year are treated under short term rates. If you are referring to the exclusion of income from the sale of your home, if you owned and lived in the place for two of the five years before the sale, then up to $250,000 of profit is tax-free. If you are married and file a joint return, the tax-free amount doubles to $500,000.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer There is no law or regulation requiring the use of a business account to pay employees. However, there are laws requiring all employers to inform all their employees--at least annually-- of the exact dollar amount they were paid and the exact dollar amounts of all deductions taken out of each employees' gross pay.

Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Without advising you how to evade taxes (which is illegal) I will say that--in matters involving collecting taxes owed--the IRS is nearly omniscient and omnipotent. The IRS not only knows who you are personally (your SSN is conclusive), they also know who owns every non-human entity that has an EIN--and most that do not.
