She should report the situation to Adult Protective Services, block her phone, kick him out, put on locks and a no trespassing sign. She should seek a Temporary Restraining Order, followed by a Temporary and then a Permanent Injunction against him coming within a certain distance of her.
At the end of 2013 I went to prison for 2 years, It was not til 2015 or so I started recieving letters from the IRS saying I owed the money. My question is, why are they only coming after me and not my ex-wife also for a joint return? I also had a help getting into a CNC or is it NCN, but I want to... Read more »
Since you are dealing with the IRS, the best and fastest way to "get this off your to do list" is to pay the taxes, penalties and interest due for the year 2013. If not, the IRS will keep hounding you for the next 4 years, i.e., until 2023--because that is how far they can go back--unless it is...Read more »
My parents are going to gift one of their properties to me and my adult disabled child. There will be a substantial capital gains tax on this property. How do we go about transferring ownership without a realtor? When and how will this capital gains tax be due?
Your parents might incur a gift tax for the amount of the gift over $60,000 ($15,000 x2 recipients x 2 grantors), but it is not likely because together they have an approximately $22 million lifetime exemption.
The two of you (gift recipients) will inherit your parents' basis in the...Read more »
If I understand your question correctly you are asking if the employer can deduct both the employee's share of payroll taxes and the employer's share of payroll taxes. No, the employer has to pay their share. The only taxes deducted from your paycheck should be the taxes you are responsible for...Read more »
It's insane that the platforms of major candidates are blatantly unconstitutional and nobody knows or cares. The Federal government doesn't have the authority to impose a federal sales tax, and it's not just a "customs tax" at the point of production
The last I heard, in America everyone who has any income from any source is required to file an income tax return--regardless of the amount of income. Why? Because if the IRS left it to taxpayers to decide whether they had earned enough to have to file a return, no one would ever file.
I'm 63 + living on a small pension, disability and retirement savings. I've always sent my mom(CPA) all my tax stuff. During this time the IRS has only contacted me 2x re fraudulent returns + gave me a pin#. She must've felt I'd owe $0. Can I file the last 6yrs taxes only(incl 2018)? My 2018... Read more »
Unless you and your estranged husband filed joint tax returns there is no way for you to "find out whether he owed taxes." BTW, the POA he gave to his sister died the same day he did. So if the two of you own any property together now is the time for you to get going and hire a probate lawyer.
The county will have procedures for challenging an assessment. You'll have to take up the case with them and you likely have no recourse against the title company as long as they were abiding by a lawful lien.
I would suggest hiring a professional as tax matters are complex and nuanced.
I need to know with absolute certainty, supported by some legal precedents that, If I declare by filling a declaration of informal marriage with the county office as per the Texas Common Law Marriage some time in 2019 that we have been common law married since January of 2017 then, are we obligated...

If I declare and register with the county office that we have been married as per Common Law Marriage in Texas since November 2018, Am I required to file an amended tax return for the year 2018 as both of us had filed an individual tax return for the year 2018 or could we leave things as it is? an...

Despite my not being licensed in Texas and not having researched this question under Texas law I am still prepared to tell you that changing your status as a taxpayer in 2019 and then trying to amend your 2018 tax return will not work. Why? Because you were not entitled to claim common law marriage...Read more »
We just received an audit letter stating they need to pay over $4500 on that surrender. I am assuming the loan company for the mobile home has sent something to the IRS (not sure what). My mom was not on the original loan, only my dad. Is my mom responsible or can she file as a non- obligated... Read more »
You should consider showing the IRS notice letter to a tax attorney who offers a free consultation.
