was approved for a mortgage based on income of 45k. Was under contract to purchase, and at the last moment there was a shortfall in my earnings of 5k compared to what my 1099 misc stated. I will most likely default due to lack of financing. At the...
This really isn't a tax question. You do need to explore why your income was over reported & if so amend your returns. But you should apply for a mortgage based upon what you were paid not what was reported. So you have several issues here.See question

The rule is clear payments must be timely. However that should only limit the one parcel if you received separate tax bills. Please get a lawyer to represent your interests.See question
I would like to avoid MA. estate tax by gifting my ira,401k,or annuity. Should I use a beneficiary form or do it now. I am 82 years old. Thankyou,
This cannot be answered without a lot more information. Gifting will lower MA estate taxes but not eliminate them entirely. You should definitely consult an attorney to run different scenarios before you do anything.See question
I was wondering. If a lawyer owes back taxes for not filing taxes for two years and there has been a lien put on the house, can my licesnse be revoked? Or would I have a hard time getting a license?
The MA DOR can revoke professional licenses & driver's licenses for unpaid taxes. Once suspended it usually takes 6 months or more to recover unless full payment is made. Cooperation, filing returns & getting on a payment agreement usually prevent such drastic action by the Department of revenueSee question

I had to take a former employer to small claims court regarding Holiday hours not being paid. We used a mediator at the court date and came to an agreement of $2000. I had asked the mediator in private about if this check would be issued as $2000 ...
I disagree with the previous answer. When you sue someone, the taxability of the payment depends upon the origin of the claim. If you claim is for unpaid wages, the payment is taxable. So unless you settled with employer as a "net payroll amount of $2,000 after reducing for payroll deductions" the $2,000 check you want is still self-employment income to you and is worse. You might check with the mediator which he thought it was.See question
