Q: A short sale on 2010. The bank never sent me 1090 form. The IRS said the bank never sended. The bank forgive the debt?
A: Unless the bank expressly waived its right to collect the deficiency, it has until July of this year to sue on the deficiency. If the bank agreed to waive its right to collect the deficiency, it would have given you something in writing at the time of the short sale.
Q: How do I find out if an individual living in Pinellas County Florida has filed bankruptcy.
A: You can register for Pacer here: http://www.pacer.gov/register.html You can also check the clerk of the court of the United States Bankruptcy Court, Tamp division.
Q: How can i check the case of the bankruptcy, online?
A: Pacer is the easiest way, as Mr. Bresalier stated. You can register at http://www.pacer.gov/register.html
Q: I had a company forgot to put motor oil back in my car and they refuse to pay for the damages, wat type of lawyer i need
A: It depends on the amount of your damages. If your damages are a few hundred dollars, the attorney fee will be higher than your damages. In that case, you can try the attorney general's office or the better business bureau. If that route fails, find someone who practices general civil law.
Q: Can a non-biological parent claim their child on their tax return
A: Yes, you don't need to be a biological parent to claim someone as a dependent. Just make sure no one else claimed the child as a dependent on their return. If so, the IRS will come after you for money. The best thing to do is to get a waiver signed from the parents giving up their right to claim the dependent. Keep it in your file in case the parent tries to claim the dependent.
Q: How can I find out if my ex has been filing income tax returns? The local cse is no help
A: The IRS won't give you this information without a power of attorney. If your divorce decree requires you to provide a copy of the return to the other person, you might be able to file some sort of an enforcement action throught the divorce court.
Q: What administrative and record keeping procedures must a tax return preparer comply with relative to tax returns prepare
A: You must be a registered preparer with the IRS. They will give you a ptin number. They have minimum requirements to get the ptin number depending on your educational level.
Q: If an inmate is compenstaed for his labor, does he pay tax or file a 1099?
A: The inmate wouldn't file the 1099. The person paying the inmate would file the 1099. Inmates are subject to the same reporting requirements as other citizens when it comes to tax law.
Q: Do i have to keep with me a receipt of tx expense under US$ 20?
A: The feds can ask for a receipt for any amount. As a practical matter, they usually won't object to it if if it's under $20.
