    Did the person say that they e-filed your return? Are you expecting a refund? Does this person have a place of business? You should ask them for their return preparer number. Once you have this number you can contact the IRS (file a complaint if necessary). If you e-filed you can check the status of your refund (please see link).

    Taxes on IRA distributions received in a divorce -- Usually, you (the former spouse) will treat the assets as your own. Thus, you will be responsible for any taxes and penalties resulting from the distribution. If you received a 1099-R then you are responsible for the taxes and the 10% early withdrawal penalty. But, this assumes that the the agreement for the division of assets was approved by the court. If not, the IRS could rule that the transaction be treated as a distribution to the spouse...

    Deed your interest in the property over to him. Please make sure there is a written agreement in which he states that he assumes all responsibility. Plus, have the document notarized.

    A non- resident alien that owns a U.S. LLC that derives 100% of its income from sources outside the U.S. will have no Federal tax liability. Non resident alien LLC members are taxable only on income that is "effectively connected" with the conduct of a U.S. business. "Effectively connected" income is both taxable by the U.S. and subject to the quarterly estimated payments. As a non-resident alien, would file your quarterly IRS Form 1040-ES (NR) and your annual return on a Form 1040 (NR). If...

    When someone else claims you as a dependent you can still file your own tax return. This is the case even if the other person has already received a tax refund. This is assuming that you are not a dependent. Please see the IRS rules here http://www.irs.gov/publications/p929/index.html. The IRS tracks everything. The IRS with probably send a letter explaining that two returns have been received claiming the same person. The letter explains the rules and instructs the person who was not entitled...

    You need to see a tax attorney immediately. Only one parent can claim a child. But, it seems that you should be that parent. With the help of a tax attorney you can file the tax returns claiming the child. Just do an evaluation before you go through all this. Also, there are time limits involved in filings so you must act quickly.

    When a non profit entity has a for profit subsidiary things get complicated. The non profit can lose its status. For example, if there are not separate boards and management staffs. The IRS would probably say that there is a conflict of interest if the same board or management oversees both entities. These hybrid models require the expertise of a tax attorney to determine the implications for both organizations.

    Taxes for 2012 are due by April 15, 2013 unless you file for an extension. If you have your paperwork in order you should go ahead and file by the deadline. Your taxes will depend on if you were categorized as an employee or 1099 independent contractor. I recommend that you contact me in person to discuss details of your situation. You can sign up to upload your documents on my secure client portal at www.jamestaxlaw.com/tax-advice. If your tax returns are straightforward the fee will be minimal.
