My uncle's house was listed in the will, but I thought the quit claim deed signed just before he died 4 months ago would keep us out of probate. I'm going through probate anyway since my name wasn't on some accounts (I am the sole inheritor). I'm trying to sell the house but I... View More
That is quite unfortunate. If your uncle deeded the house to you during his lifetime, as a lifetime gift, then your basis is the same as whatever his basis was (the amount he paid for it plus capital improvements). This is called carryover basis. If the house has appreciated in value since he...View More
If the HOA has been administratively dissolved and there is no active board or entity responsible for maintaining the common spaces, it may be difficult to determine who is responsible for paying the city and county land taxes on those spaces.
In general, if the land deeds are in the name...View More
If the common areas are part of a condominium, then those homeowners are responsible for the taxes. If they are roads, then dedicated to the County and no taxes. Reconstitute the HOA, and probably need to pay taxes. Developer and the old HOA could possibly be sued, but doubtful. HOA might...View More

Absolutely hire a competent TN attorney to draft that future interests deed which might include a class gift remainder. Apparently you will need three enforceable deeds. Do not even think of a title co. Lawyer will need to draft three new legal descriptions from the survey plat, and not...View More
Does a retired person who is drawing life insurance and social security have to claim any profit on their taxes, i.e. if they are renting a piece of property or a house and only want to receive cash for rent.
Generally, rental income is considered taxable income and should be reported on the individual's tax return. This includes rental income received by a retired person who is also receiving social security and life insurance benefits. However, there may be deductions and credits available to...View More
Life Insurance is exempt from TN taxes and creditors. But the US will sometime tax them although rarely. FL property sale income is a capital gain usually subject to US taxes. TN does not have an income tax.
She might be, yes, but there are facts missing from your description that could make a difference. Plus, it is not automatic. She would have to go to court to prove her claim. She should schedule a consultation with a real estate litigation attorney.

Each County Trustee gets the County Attorney to do tax sales at different delinquency periods. If you want to set aside a sale, hire an attorney now. Redemption period may not have run yet, but then you have to have the money to redeem.
And structure measurements to be certain the county had the correct information .I only agreed because he claimed to be the tax assessor. I became suspicious and called the county assessor and was informed that he had not been here since 2021.i later discovered he was hired by my neighbor posing as... View More
Specialization will not help. Hire a competent TN attorney to examine your Redemption Rights, and possibly exercise them. It will not be cheap and probably difficult. But if you want your home back, get in gear. Time is of the essence.
The property was purchased on the greenbelt in the 90’s, last year while cutting timber on said property, police showed up and told me I need to stop cutting because I didn’t own the property. Apparently 7 years ago the property was taken off of the greenbelt clause making me delinquent on the... View More
There is a lot more to this than simply getting notice of Delinquent Taxes. Hire a competent attorney to search the Title. The Redemption period is probably past, but the alleged owner may only have a Bill of Sale, not a Deed. An Ejectment Action may be possible. The legal description should...View More

That does not sound like a TNDL. You may wish to read the Citation verbatim, possibly with a magnifying glass. Then call the Court that it is before and ask. Otherwise hire an attorney to figure out what is going on. It may not be a Citation but a Notice of Suspension from DOS due to an...View More
You are probably exempted from the capital gains tax as you were 55 during the last 5 years of living there as your home. But you still have to report the sale, and you might not meet the one time exclusion because of your age. Check IRS Publication 523.
Unfortunately TN SC has ruled a tax is not a claim against the Estate. The SOL may have run on collection of taxes, or there not be property of the deceased taxpayer to collect from. Hire a competent attorney to assess the situation since apparently you do not have an attorney handling the...View More
