Q. I have not filed personal income taxes in 11 years. (all from working regular jobs)
A: See if you qualify for assistance from a law income taxpayer clinic in your area. It is impossible for us to give you the best advice without a lot more detail. Here is a link for more information on the clinics.
Q. Am I able to refile taxes as single once they have been filed as joint return?
A: You could have filed married filing separately. Since you already filed married filing jointly you cannot change your filing status for 2018. Going forward if you are still married and do not want to file jointly, you can file married filing separately.
Q. can employer deduct employees pay to pay employer payroll taxes? Employer is already deducting employees payroll taxes
A: 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 and the employer holds in trust to be transmitted to the IRS. They also need to send in their share from their own funds not yours.
Q. I was wondering how a federal lien in ct for his unpaid corporation employee taxes is filed on a marital property .
A: It is likely that your husband was assessed a trust fund penalty for not paying his employment taxes. He is personally liable for the trust fund portion of the taxes he did not pay. Any real estate that is in his name may be subject to the lien. If the IRS chooses to enforce the lien then they can only take his share of the equity in your home. You should try to get your husband to seek assistance with this before the IRS begins collection activity. If you have any joint bank accounts or stocks/bonds, etc. they are all at risk. Most of us offer a free consultation. Just stay away from the places you see advertised on TV.
Q. My husband has been hiding income, rationing me for years, and has cut me off financially several times.
A: I agree with the other attorneys regarding the divorce issue. I believe that you may need to consult with a tax attorney regarding any potential tax issues. Even if you haven't signed any returns in recent years that does not mean that your husband did not file a joint return electronically. You should make sure that you have a clear picture of any potential tax issues both so that they can be addressed in the divorce and so that you can set up a plan of action in the event that there is a joint debt owed. You can call the IRS or go online and request your tax transcripts. This will tell let you know if you have any tax liabilities.
Q. Do 501(c)(3) Corps have to pay tax on Propane Gas? See CERT-115. We are a Vol Fire Co.
A: The State of Connecticut does allow exemptions for sales and use tax for 501c3 organizations. I did a quick search to see if the exemption applies to the gross receipts tax but could not find anything. I suggest calling the State of Connecticut Department of Revenue Services and ask them. They should be able to provide you with more detailed information regarding the exemption.
Q. I pay my taxes , my husband is self employed and has not . Apparently
A: If you filed married filing separately then the IRS can only come after joint assets (joint bank accounts, home, stocks, etc.). If your finances are completely separate (including no joint bank accounts) then you should be fine. If you filed married filing jointly then you are both liable to the IRS and you should contact a tax attorney immediately. Stay away from the places you see advertised on TV. Most of us offer a free consultation. You should not have any problem adding him onto your policy either way you filed.. If you filed married fling separately you should urge your husband to consult with a good tax attorney to resolve his back taxes. Again, tell him to stay away from the places he sees advertised on TV. One other piece of free advice. If you did file married filing jointly in the past, you should only file married filing separately unless he has paid his taxes.
Q. South Carolina IRS audit - IRS requesting Medical receipts and records that i don't have ( have some but not all)
A: I recommend that you hire a tax attorney to represent you. They may be able to help you reconstruct your records.
Q. Hello. I need to write a letter of Compromise to IRS. I owe around $36K and want to know if I can offer to pay nothing
A: An Offer in Compromise is not submitted via a letter. You have to fill out a financial statement and submit supporting documentation for your expenses, as well as Form 656. Without more details we cannot tell you if you are eligible or not. You can try submitting an Offer on your own, hire an attorney, or try and get free assistance from a local low income taxpayer clinic. Here is the link to for more information If you decide to hire a tax attorney stay away from the places you see advertised on TV. Search here for a good tax attorney. Most of us offer a free consultation. You may also want to consider bankruptcy (if you are eligible) since you have another substantial debt. Good luck.
