My Dad never updated his will but he left everything to his girlfriend and she said she is going to distribute everything between her and the 3 children evenly. Wondering about taxes and if I should get an attorney to make sure it’s done fairly. 350k+ in assets and investments mostly... Read more »
Not sure how to read your question, but if you mean by "never updated his will" that your dad DID have a will and his girlfriend received everything under the will, then you will definitely want to meet with a PA estate attorney. if the will is probated and the girlfriend does not file...Read more »
Be considered mail tampering. I have received the letter 1444c three times to my forwarded address but they returned the payment for the notice three times they know what they are doing and I want to know if I could perhaps file a complaint against that post office or whoever is in charge ect.
No. They are not supposed to forward certain things. You need to be sure that the IRS and the government have your proper address. Discuss this with your Congressperson--they have information on how you can get your payments.
for 2020 I owed $7200 on April 15th to the IRS but I accidentally dated it for 2021 and now they refuse to transfer the $7,200 from 2021 to 2020. so essentially my $7,200 is just sitting there being unused because im no longer self employed so I no longer need to make quarterly payments. I'm... Read more »
(1) If you can find the right person to talk with in the IRS, your problem should be resolvable. When you contact the IRS, keep asking for the next higher supervisor until you get someone who will work with you.
(2) Other than that, on January 1st, 2022, file your 2021 return, show the...Read more »

PA inheritance tax on bequests to child/children is five percent. When that is paid, the property enjoys a "stepped up basis", so that on a subsequent sale of the property, any capital gain is computed as the difference between the stepped up basis and the sale price, both for PA and...Read more »

It is unclear if the father is a PA or New York resident. If we assume the father was a PA resident at his death, then the joint bank account will be taxed by PA at 50% of its value on the date of death and at 4.5%. This assumes that the account existed as a joint account for more than one year...Read more »

We would also like to provide food from the farm to those in need. So we would like to apply for nonprofit status and... Read more »
The "simple" answer to your question is it is possible to operate a non-profit and a for-profit on the same land. However the more important and complex questions are (i) does it make sense from a tax and business point of view; and (ii) what are your for-profit goals or objectives. You...Read more »
Income I made from 1992 to 1994 was not recorded even if I filed my taxes for those years. I contacted my ex-employer and they gave me a confirm letter with my salaries for the years I worked, but the letter is not considered as proof by the social security office. I just dont know... Read more »
If you have copies of your tax returns for those years, I would call the social security administration to see if they could update their records accordingly. If they cannot do it, then this gets to be a harder task. You could contact the IRS (good luck with that these days with their limited...Read more »
Check your court paperwork, and if the judge's office told you that you were able to, you should certainly take advantage of that option. Without more information, it is difficult to speak to your specific situation, but at least in general there is a CDC issued stay on evictions for...Read more »
You were not married when she received the check, one half of which belongs to you because of your marriage during 2019. You need to work it out with her and let her know that you are legally entitled to ½ of the money. Probably, it is not worth to ask attorney to write a letter to her. I hope...Read more »

We talked to domestics all they know is that the put in a form to intercept, that is all. Wheres the rest of the $$$. She... Read more »
Are you sure she was supposed to receive more then what you were sent? The only other reason that I know of why you would not have received the full amount is she may have owed additional debts that had priority or the state did not update the records to indicate the full amount she owed. Also if...Read more »
IRS took my 2019 Taxes said I was self employed in 2018, Which I was not worked for the same company for 13 years. I have called 3 to 4 time and talked to 4 Different agents and they don't seem to know why and kept asking was I self employed and one agent said someone messed up somewhere.
If the amount is high enough to make it worth your while to hire a tax attorney then you may want to go ahead and hire someone. If the amount is too low then I recommend calling the taxpayer advocate to see if they can assist you. Trying to resolve this on your own may get very frustrating.
