Q. I cant get my former business partner to sign a dissolution agreement and now I might have to pay her part of the taxes
A: You need to speak with a good tax attorney to discuss your case in detail. If you do end up owing taxes that you cannot afford to pay there are collection alternatives available to you including an offer in compromise, a partial payment installment agreement, currently not collectible status, etc. Just stay away from the places you see advertised on TV. Use Justia to find an attorney. Most of us offer a free consultation.
Q. Past taxes owed from my husband's previous marriage, why is it just now showing up?
A: If your husband filed a tax return with his ex-wife then they are both jointly and severally (individually) liable. The IRS can go after one person or both. They do not split the taxes 50/50 or apportion them according to income. The IRS will collect from whoever they can collect from whether that is him, her, or both. If he did not file a return with his ex-wife and he did not file separately then the IRS may have filed a substitute for return for him. Either way the IRS would have sent notices to his last known address. Usually that address is the one listed on a taxpayer's last filed return. Since he has not filed returns in many years the IRS may have sent the notices to an old address. You can file for injured spouse (Form 8379) relief if you worked and would have been entitled to a refund if you did not file jointly with your husband. I recommend that your husband consult with a good tax attorney. Just stay away from the places you see advertised on TV.
Q. I signed up for ACA health insurance when I was unemployed, early in 2018. Then I landed a job with insurance. Now I owe
A: If you cannot afford to repay the amount monthly (the IRS will want around $210 a month) then you will likely need to hire an attorney to help you come up with a collection alternative which can be currently not collectible status, an Offer in Compromise, or a partial payment installment agreement. Most of us offer a free consultation and can give you an idea of what would be the best collection alternative. Just stay away from the places you see advertised on TV.
Q. can the irs withhold back taxes on veterans disability payments
A: The IRS considers income from any source in calculating what funds are available to repay your tax debt. Frequently a tax professional can negotiate a lower monthly installment agreement payment then a taxpayer can get on their own. Most of us offer a free consultation. Stay away from the places you see advertised on TV, they often mislead their clients. Any good tax lawyer will tell you if they cannot do any better for you then you did on your own.
Q. How can I find out if a 1099 form to my ex-husband is phony or real, and if it was sent to IRS and DoR?
A: Towards the end of May it should be on file with the IRS. You would not be able to get any information but your ex-husband would be able to call.
Q. The IRS says that I received $29,000 and taxed me for it. I never received this money, what to do?
A: It sounds like you have been a victim of identity theft. This can be a complex issue to straighten out with the IRS. I recommend consulting with an experienced tax attorney. Most of us offer a free consultation. Stay away from the places you see advertised on TV.
Q. Can I still file married joint if my spouse's SSN has been filed on another return?
A: If you suspect that your husband was a victim of identity theft then you need to take steps to straighten this out. I am including the link to the IRS page that discussed what to do if you suspect identity theft. https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/taxpayer-guide-to-identity-theft If you do not think this is something you can straighten out on your own, contact a good tax attorney. Most of us offer a free consultation.
Q. What can I do if my income puts me just over the Obamacare cliff and I have to pay an extra 20k in taxes?
A: The first thing I would advise is to have your return prepared by a good CPA if you have not already done so. Make sure you use a good CPA and not a national chain. They may find some deductions that you were not aware you could take. After that if you still have a large balance due, contact a good tax attorney for advice on the best collection alternative. Stay away from the places you see advertised on TV and use someone you find on Justia. Most of us offer a free consultation.
Q. I signed up for ACA health insurance when I was unemployed, early in 2018. Then I landed a job with insurance. Now I owe
A: I advise you to contact a good tax attorney to discuss your options. Stay away from the places you see advertised on TV. There is not really any help we can offer online.
