Rounding to the nearest whole dollar is standard practice. DIY forms automatically do this for you.
His ex is saying it’s whoever filed first gets to claim her but the divorce papers state she gets even years and he gets odd years

You can bring them in for a contempt hearing for violating the child support order. In your declaration, I’d attach the email or text messages where your ex made these statements. Please reach out if you need representation!
I am the executor and sole beneficiary to my mother's estate. How do I transfer the deed to her house to my daughter?

Depending on the circumstances, probate may have to be initiated in order to properly transfer the property. A real estate lawyer can prepare a deed and tax affidavit which can then be executed and recorded. You may wish to contact an attorney who practices both real estate and probate to... Read more »

I have paid all childcare and medical expenses while he refused to follow orders. Support enforcement is garnishing but I have to wait until next year to file... Read more »

This all depends on what your child support order states. If the child support order places conditions on claiming the tax benefit, he must meet those conditions.
If there are no conditions, he can claim because the order says he can.
Now, if he owes money, all you need to do is... Read more »

My brother wants to transfer multiple vehicle titles into my name to avoid them being seized for child support payments.

As the owner of the vehicle, you are generally liable for the actions of persons you permit or allow to use the vehicle. You do not want your brother's legal and financial problems to become your legal and financial problems. Steve Dashiak's answer is spot on. There's an old... Read more »
The Casino told me I need to have a Power of Attorney but I was told by someone else that Power of Attorney's are only for the living. Will an Affidavit of a Small Estate work?

If you opened probate and had "Letters Testamentary" the casino would likely honor that, but that is a hassle if there's no need to open probate. You may be able to obtain a "Wage and Income Transcript" from the IRS, which shows reported W2s, but it will take some time for... Read more »

My position is being eliminated. I'm taking severance pay. Want to get it as pay not a gift with huge taxes taken. Can that be done?
answered on Nov 17, 2020
This seems strange. In a business context and where services are involved, it seems unlikely that any payment can be considered a gift. This sounds like taxable income to me. Regardless of how the employer treats it, you still have the responsibility to report all of your taxable income and if... Read more »

You should consult with a CPA or a licensed tax accountant to assist you in amending your tax return. Hopefully, the amendment can put you in position for a stimulus check.
Good luck to you.

Sorry, but you are way too late to try to catch that gravy train--which left the station over 12 years ago. But who knows? If you did file a tax return for 2018 you might luck out and receive $1,200.
