If there are no other elements to the returns, you should not need to file.
In 2020 I contributed to trad IRA $6000 as after tax money and bought some ETF with this. I used form 8606 to report them as nondeductible contributions. In 2021 I sold those ETF on tad IRA and got $5986. So it was loss of $14. Now I added additional $6000 as after tax money to trad IRA. So in... Read more »

You need to enter your basis (amount your contributed that was nondeductible). Based on what you shared, the result should be no taxable distribution.

Texas law does not grant automatic visitation or custody rights to grandparents. However, if the child has been living with you for more than six months, you are be eligible to ask for custody of the child as a non-parent under Texas Family Code section 102.003.

You can’t file jointly if you were never married.
Because you filed jointly, the IRS likely believes you are married pursuant to common law in Texas.
Ordinarily, the IRS cannot retain one taxpayer’s tax refund to offset the debt of another taxpayer.
I filed my taxes with Turbo Tax last year and their third party vendor hasn’t delivered my tax refund and is saying they need to deduct fees for delivery. Im asking for a receipt for the fees and they are refusing.
answered on Feb 1, 2023
This sound suspicious.
Even when you use TurboTax to file your federal income tax return, the IRS directly sends your tax return to you. You can request it direct deposit it into your bank account or mail you a check.
I know of no third party vendor ever involved in this process.

Yes, as long as the vehicle is used for business purposes. It is highly advisable that title is taken in the name of the LLC and is covered by a commercial motor vehicle liability insurance policy rather than a personal one

Yes, a recent unbiased professional appraisal carries considerable weight in a tax protest. In most instances, the appraisal review board will adopt the professional appraiser's valuation in such circumstances.
The person who was in charge of doing our taxes last year quit and I can't seem to find out whether if they filed for 2021 or not. Is there a way to check if my business filed taxes for 2021?
answered on Dec 1, 2022
You can go onto your IRS portal and pull the account transcript for the business. This will tell you if a return is on file. If you are unable to do it that way, you can call the IRS directly. Just be prepared for long wait times.

Only if you don't want to arbitrate any future dispute you may have with the tax firm. With very few exceptions, arbitration agreements are enforceable.
