In 2015 my wife and I moved to Dallas from our primary residence in Austin for a new job opportunity. We rented the house out until 2019 when we then sold it. According to IRS publication 523 if you take a job over 50 miles from your primary residence, you should be eligible for some capital gains... Read more »
We were married for 20 years and now divorced for 3yrs.
I was a stay at home mom the entire time and my (ex)husband worked in IT- most of his work was contract so when we received his tax forms, they were 1099. Most times he pushed off the taxes to me to file (I had us go to HRBlock) but... Read more »
If neither of you filed for the years in question and the IRS filed for you then you can file married filing separately. This may result in you being able to get back some money if you would have been entitled to a refund. If a joint return was filed then you will likely need professional...Read more »
Eight years ago, my husband (now 80 years old) and I (71 years old) bought a second house for our adult daughter to live in. Her disabilities are getting worse and I now live with her to help.

There is no federal statute mandating that a private business, a person, or an organization must accept currency or coins as payment for goods or services. Private businesses are free to develop their own policies on whether to accept cash unless there is a state law that says otherwise. Texas does...Read more »
You would pay the sales tax to the State of Texas. There are a lot of complex rules with online sales, but it typically depends on the level of sales that store/person has in the state on whether the State of Ark. can also collect sales tax.
I had a company send me a w-2 for 2019. I never worked for them that year. I did work for them the year before. The w-2 said I was paid just under $900.00. I never got any money. I think the boss used my info to get the money for himself.
You really should be asking a Tax Law attorney or at least a CPA. This isn't my area of practice so I can't give you a legal answer. However, as a fellow taxpayer, it is my understanding that it is better to reach out to the IRS than to put your head in the sand so you might consider...Read more »
If you mean affidavits of probable cause upon which is the basis to issue an arrest warrant or search warrant, in Texas the Judge is supposed to keep those or file them in a place that they are publicly available since they are matters of public record.
Gather what records you have, order IRS (and state if applicable) transcripts, draft returns and file. If you owe you'll need to work out a resolution, pay, installment agreement, offer in compromise, etc...
For that amount of returns I would suggest hiring a professional. They usually...Read more »

I have 4 children who were born in Texas. 21, 15, 10 and 2 years old. 22 years ago I worked in the USA with an H-1B visa when my oldest son was born. When my visa expired, I returned to live in Mexico and I only returned to the USA so that my... Read more »
The children under 16, no. The 21 year old, maybe. If he or she has a social security number (SSN), but has never filed any taxes, then he or she must fill out the non-filer form: https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments
I am in Louisiana. My case is going into its final appeal because they made the decision before they saw any of my evidence that I faxed. My boss not only paid in $1,400 to an employee that was fired, which was part of my quarterly income, but then he skipped a quarter of my income. Then he paid me... Read more »

States often send out amount due notices with no substantiation. However, it's your responsibility to respond and show they're wrong. Complete bunk, but that's the way it is. Otherwise you find yourself in a situation where they just start taking your...Read more »
I was misinformed about my job duties, requirements, and compensation by my direct supervisor. When I attempted to gain clarity I was informed that I was being released due to the fact that I was on parole. This information was delivered verbally from company supervisor in corporation's...
