    Sounds like your employer has some other type of arrangement that's being deducted. You might want to check with the human resources department to get some details.

  • Do i have to provide my corporation bank statements if asked by the irs if only my self is being audited not the corporation?

    im being audited. not the corporation. they specifically asked for corporation bank statements and i would think the corporation would need to be under audit for them to ask for this.

    Evan’s Answer

    It all depends on what the audit issues are. And if you don't provide them, it's possible the IRS may use a subpoena to obtain them anyway. You do have the ability to object to certain inquiries and may be able to suppress the information if you act properly. It really might make sense to obtain legal counsel on this - audits can be very messy and if both your personal and corporate records are being requested then you'll benefit from the assistance.

    Good luck.

  • Tax Returns.

    I have always done my taxes regularly every year and even though I have not worked since December of 2011 and officially lost my job in January of 2012 I did my tax returns for 2012. I have to pay back the State and my question is do I have to ret...

    Evan’s Answer

    It sounds like you're asking about the state taxes for 2012 but it's not clear what the money you received was associated with. If it's a refund and they've now determined the refund was in error then the answer is "yes." But if the money is from something else then it's not clear. Perhaps you can provide the source of the money you received.
