I am 19 years old lived with my grandparents during senior year of high school but my dad claimed me on taxes he doesnt support me nor give any child support can I be claimed on my grandparents taxes and use that for my FASFA. My dad didnt want to...
Dependency exemptions depend on both who provides you support and who you live with more than half the time. You can't "make" your Dad redo his return, but your grandparents could claim you. This would trigger an audit and your Dad wouldn't be able to substantiate his entitlement to the deduction, but your grandparents would.See question
the difference between the amounts are 480.00 for crawl space and 1150.00 for a full basement. The county appraiser appraised the house without looking in the back yard
I agree with James. I don't know the applicable local rules. But, what I do know, is that in every jurisdiction, you must appeal appraisals very quickly.See question
Hi, the reason why I'm contacting you for advice is because I have moved out of state, and after the taxes were done, I have received in the mail a form 5498 from IRA, which my 401k was transferred to since I didn't have a 401k at my last job. Thi...
See a local CPA or Tax Attorney. If you are in a situation where you need to file an amendment because you missed a deduction for IRA contributions or a taxable withdrawal and penalty, you should just amend the return right away to deal with the issue. I am not sure why you would have a tax obligation simply on the transfer, if done properly.See question
Our mother was passing and the house was given to daughter. The house sold now after 2 months. What are the tax implications? There are 2 brothers also that the are to receive 1/3 after sold. How does that effect them tax wise as well?
Other posters have good answers. If there is gain, it is taxable, but inheritance generally will not be.See question
I'm new to California from Australia and am waiting my work permit from UCSIS. (marriage) so I'm trying to get my website organized. I have been told California sales tax only applies to services, not goods. But I read on wedding photo...
Read the CA Board of Equalization guidance. Many states impose sales tax on certain services that are inextricably intertwined into the product. It seems that CA views private photograph (as opposed to commercial photography for ad campaigns) as such an activity. Thus, wedding photography appears to be subject to sales tax, both on the service as well as the finished product.
That said, I only looked quickly at the regulations, and you should consult a local CPA or Tax Attorney who works with the Board of Equalization regularly and knows their views on photography in particular.See question
Does a tax lien give the government the right to seized my property or more of a restriction of sale until the lien is paid? In other words, when a lien is placed on a property, does that translate into the property being seized by the gover...
A tax lien is not a seizure. The tax lien is an encumbrance that must be paid before a sale can take place and title can be transferred free of the restriction.See question
My brother listed me as his beneficiary to his 401k and ESOP. He didn't own a home or have much in terms of assets outside some savings ($10k) and his 401k and ESOP. I need to understand my options on what to do with the monies and the tax impli...
You need to consult a local CPA or Tax Attorney and provide them with all the information and documentation to make an intelligent decision of how to handle this.See question
they redid it immediately and took more money and then two years later they are sending me a statement saying that I owe 1600 more dollars.
This is a strange fact scenario. Generally, unless you amend, the IRS can only audit any tax module once.See question
I know that her mother doesn't work and have reason to believe that she let someone other than me claim my daughter on their taxes since she didn't work last year either
You are not providing enough information. Your W-4 and your filings should match. So the question is whether you are entitled to claim your daughter on your tax return. Obviously, if someone else is claiming her, that raises the question of whether you or someone else meet the 50% of living expenses and 50% of custody time requirements in the tax code. That is who is entitled to the deduction. So, that is the appropriate inquiry. If you are providing more than 50% support and watching your daughter more than 50% of the time, you should be taking the exemption.See question
My husband has no debt, earns about twice as much as me. Since I earned less than 30k last year payments towards my IBR plan would be calculated relatively low based on filing separately. Any advice for whether it would be better to file separate ...
I agree with David. You are better off showing your lower income for IBR purposes.See question
