I don't own anything I mean nothing is in my name. I dont work so they cant take wages or taxes. What can they really take from me?
If this is for a tax debt the IRS may eventually go into your bank account and take whatever funds are available. If you do not work and are unable to pay the debt you may be eligible for currently not collectible status or an offer in compromise but you will need to contact the IRS and work something out with them.See question
I owe IRS more or less $12,000. I am having hard time to pay it off, whatever I owe is not done till the next year's taxes comes again. Can I be arrested and go to jail for this?
It is very unlikely that you would be arrested just for being unable to pay your taxes. You mention that the "next year's taxes comes again." Do you mean that every year when you file you owe more? if so, then you are just going to keep having a continuous problem. If this is the case, your best bet is to speak with a tax attorney and discuss your options. Most of us offer a free consultation and can advise you on the best way to proceed. If this is what is happening, you need to increase the amount of taxes you are having withheld or are paying in estimated taxes in order to have your taxes paid in full each year. You may be finding this impossible to do because you do not have enough money left over after paying on your tax liability to increase your withholding or estimated payments. There may be a way to resolve this with an offer in compormise, currently not collectible status, or a partial payment installment agreement. As long as you call a tax attorney that offers a free consultation you have nothing to lose and should call someone.See question
I have been married for 18 years. I do not have access to my husbands business or bank account. he just told me 3 days ago that he has not filed business or personal taxes in 4 years because he knew he would owe. Would I be in trouble with the IR...
If you file jointly with your husband you will owe the taxes jointly and severally which means the IRS will attempt to collect from both or either of you. This is true regardless of whether you know anything about his business or not. You should file married filing separately whether or not you had any income. This will keep him from being able to file a joint return.
I also recommend that you check to see if there are balances due from previous years just to be sure. If there are then you should consult with a tax attorney to discuss your options. Most of us offer a free consultation and can give you some suggestions on how to proceed.See question

It sounds like the same scam calls that I receive several times a week. You can double check with the IRS just to be sure. Just call them directly. Look for the correct number to call on the IRS website. The IRS always sends written letters to your last known address informing you of any tax liabilities. You would have received several letters prior to ever receiving a phone call from a Revenue Officer.See question

Your Dad needs to hire a lawyer. You do not say what type of taxes he owes. If they are federal taxes, he may be able to reach a resolution with the IRS. I have helped people keep their homes many times. If they are property taxes that can be tricky. Either way a consultation with a tax attorney is the best way to proceed. Most of us offer a free consultation. Just stay away from the places you see advertised on TV.See question

I definitely recommend that you consult with a tax attorney. Anytime you file a joint return with someone you can be held jointly and severally liable for any tax liability. You are also in a community property state which may add on an additional element. Use the find a lawyer feature and find someone in your local area.See question

The general rule on whether clothing can be deducted is if it can only be worn for business. For example, if you need to wear specialty shoes or clothing that you would nto wear outside of work, it may be deductible. If the clothing can be worn anytime, it is not deductible.See question

If the IRS files a substitute for return for someone who has not filed a tax return, they do not have access to the proper deductions that the person may claim. Therefore, the IRS filed return frequently reflects a much higher tax liability than the person would owe if they file their own return. A substitute for return is one of the ways the IRS gets you to file your actual return. Once the return is filed by the taxpayer, if they actually owe less than the IRS showed on their substitute return the penalties and interest will be reduced accordingly.
As the previous attorney suggested, you should make sure to call the IRS and verify that the debt is real.

As the other lawyers mentioned the IRS has broad collection authority. It would be in your best interest to hire someone to try and reach a resolution with the IRS prior to receiving the check.See question
