Did you ever receive a 1099 tax form? If so, then a Schedule C would have been prepared. Look more closely and if necessary, call the tax company to discuss.See question
I live in my moms house .. I filed chapter 13 and put the debt for the garage door i bought on my payment plan. The garage door people are calling and texting threatening to put a lein on the house.. I explained to them about the chapter 13 but th...
There is not enough information in your question to accurately answer it. Did your Mom co-sign on this loan? Are the garage door lenders secured? In other words, was there a security agreement, such as a UCC-1 that was also entered into? Who are they calling and texting right now? In your Chapter 13 plan, is this loan being fully paid? Answer these questions, and an attorney would be better able to give you some guidance. Thanks.See question
I received a random call from a automated system stating the irs is going to put a lean on my bank account and assets from not paying a tax bill and demanding money. It seemed like a scam to me so I called the IRS to confirm and they said it was a...
Yes, you do have to file. If you don't ever file a return for those years, then the Collections Statute of Liimitations (CSED) will never start to run. Get your W-2 and other income information from the IRS by requesting the Wage and Income Transcripts for those two years. Then you can use that transcript information to prepare the returns. If you wind up owing for those returns after the returns are filed, then you may also be able to request some penalty reduction.See question

Sue the mortgage company? You describe what amounts to some relatively minor property damage. I am curious as to how you know that it was a representative from the mortgage company who did this damage, and not some vandals like it usually is. Not sure about Oklahoma law, but where I am (PA), there have been a high number of homes that are vacant due to the foreclosure crisis, and in certain neighborhoods where home values have depreciated, the mortgage banks simply are not following through on foreclosures. The bigger issue you face is that like it or not, you are still the homeowner, and for having an abandoned house, you can be pursued by your local building code enforcement officials for allowing your property to become dilapidated. So, watch out for that.See question
My thirty five year old daughter passed away from a heart attack. No will, no executor. I filed her taxes and she owes $1000. We have a letter from the IRS telling us to remit what was owed. Do the parents have to pay taxes on behalf of a decea...
I agree with the other attorneys who have commented. You will only need to pay if there's an estate. But you should file the final tax return (1040) and indicate that she has passed away. You should also call the IRS number at the top of their letter to indicate that there's no estate as well. I am sorry for your loss.See question
I did not do a reaffirmation agreement on the loan but kept my car. Can I refinance at a reasonable rate to clear the negative loan "as paid" and start a new, positive loan reporting?
I have never heard of someone refinancing a car loan after bankruptcy just to improve their credit. First of all, you don't have the car title, so I'm not sure how you would go about refinancing. Second, most people have cars that have depreciated, so they don't have the ability to refinance when they owe more than the car is worth. There are likely better ways to improve your credit rating over the coming two years. It is also likely that the bankruptcy filing and discharge have improved your credit rating more than you might think.See question
they are harassing me coming to my job and home. I am in the second year of a 2 year agreement and have paid fair market value. what should I do?
Do you have an attorney for your bankruptcy case? Aarons can't contact you without filing a Motion for Relief of the Automatic Stay. But I've seen Aarons (in my State) try to file criminal complaints against their customers.. I agree with Mr. Caldwell. Just because you have previously paid fair market value, it doesn't matter that the furniture is considered paid off. You have to redeem the property for its fair market value as of the petition date. Aarons and other furniture rental companies use extraordinarily high interest rates and very deceptive practices to lure customers, so be careful. But if Aarons hasn't lifted the automatic stay, then you can attack them with a Motion for Violation of the Stay (presuming that they have been properly listed on your bankruptcy schedules). Good luck.See question
I am 60 years old and owe back taxes of $74,000. I filed an OIC but haven't heard back. My income is approx $45K and will not get much higher than that. I fear they will want most of my paltry 401K. Even if they take most of that, it won't be enou...
It will take 6 to 9 months for the IRS to review your Offer in Compromise. As for leniency towards you given your age, it's hard to say. Yes, the IRS does look at 401k and other retirement savings, but they give you a discount on that given that you still owe taxes on any 401k account. You don't mention how much you have left in your 401k account though. Please know however that if you are denied on your OIC request, you do have a right to appeal it, and that's where you have another chance to prevail. So, find a tax professional near you who is experienced with OICs and IRS representation, or find one here on Avvo. Meet with them to review your OIC. Good luck.See question
To stop taxes from being taken out of their paycheck?
I would echo the other attorneys who have already responded. You have apparently been speaking with someone who is a tax protester or tax objector. The IRS does prosecute people like that. Look no further than the actor, Wesley Snipes, who did a fairly long federal prison term as a result of his beliefs about not paying income taxes.See question

You have to wait 8 years from the date of filing your previous Chapter 7 case. It's the filing date that starts the 8 years, not the discharge date.See question
