Depends. If you are an individual /solo proprietor, then you do not. If you are a company (corporation, LLC) then yes. That said, there's a saying that's essentially true: only a fool represents himself----thus I highly recommend that you contact a tax attorney to represent you in...Read more »
More information is needed to answer your question-----you should contact a real estate lawyer or if a succession was completed putting you in possession of the property, then contact the succession lawyer and bring up your concerns. You use the phrase sales tax auction----depending on when this...Read more »
Depends----did you purchase the tax title or did you pay the taxes but in the owner's name? There's a big difference here. Anyway, I would contact a local attorney in your area and to discuss your options.
I have two children, I am domicile, My ex-husband claims one child, and I claimes the other. That’s how it has been for three years. This year I am without work, as my current husband works so that I may stay home with the children. My ex-husband is threatening court as he believes that he is... Read more »
My grandmother passed away last year, and the house was left to her three children. I have no contact with my dad, aunt or uncle. I lived with her for three years and continued to live there after her passing. She has delinquent taxes as of 2021. I was inquiring about paying these taxes. Would I be... Read more »
This is not as easy as just paying the delinquent taxes, but you can attempt to do so however there are a number of specific steps you have to take in order to (eventually) obtain clear title to the property. I would recommend that you contact a real estate attorney in your area and set up a...Read more »
My boyfriend has back taxes he owes from before we were together. If we decide to get married would a prenup keep my refund from being taken to cover his debt? We live in Louisiana, or is there someway other than filing married but separately because we wouldnt get the deductions? Thanks!
My wife inherited 50% her grandfather's house in 2013 when he passed away. We weren't allowed to move in because Louisiana deemed it a family house. Her aunt has been living in the house since 2014 but is not paying property tax. We received a letter in the mail with my wife’s name and... Read more »
At some point in time the taxes will have to be paid or you risk losing ownership of the house. Based on your post, it is not clear whether the sheriff has seized the property for a tax sale, or if someone pad the unpaid taxes and "purchased" the property---you need to contact an...Read more »
You should speak to both a property or real estate attorney and a succession attorney to answer your question contained in your post and to get this property out of your mother's name. I am fairly certain the redemption must be paid as the property owner has some obligation to notify the...Read more »
As long as the donor is of sound mind, the donor should be able to donate his/her interest to whomever he/she wants----since you are discuss a house, which I interpret to mean real property, there are rules on how to donate real property, which if not followed, may nullify the donation----so, I...Read more »
me, and only went one day to her mothers in 2020. Upon filing with turbo tax, it was determined that because of the court order I would be able to file HOH and qualify for the EIC and the mother gets to claim as a dependent. Mother isn’t happy with just the dependent. In an email with her lawyer,... Read more »
My step dad has no kids and never married. He raised me since I was four and I’m now 33. He left everything in a will to me. He still owes on his home and has two harleys and a truck that are paid for. He has never filed taxes in his life and has always received a 1099 from his boss of 30+ years.... Read more »
Yes, you have to file a succession to get title to the house and vehicles. It also might have to be administered depending on the debts. Just in general, the process can take anywhere from several weeks to several months for most cases.
3 years ago and now here a few months ago they changed my taxes from a w-2 form to a 10-99 form and changed my dependents to 99 and never gave me a notice or nothing isn't that illegal and can I sue them for doing that without my consent
Have joint custody with me as custodial parent. Also have a child support judgement. She is in arrears do I have to let her claim a kid for tax purposes? Her child support is only been paid once by her taxes and once by stimulus check. Never by her or her job.
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...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 »
