The first thing you should do is consult with a local CPA or tax preparer concerning this situation. If it turns out something was incorrectly filed/reported, the CPA or tax preparer can prepare amended returns for the years at issue. Hope this helps, and good luck!See question
Will past evictions show up for an change
I agree that there is no way to know what type of search the landlord will perform or how extensive that might be. If the landlord pulls a credit report your maiden and married names will both show up on there, which could result in a search under both names. If you just want to know if its discoverable I'd say it definitely is - again, depending on how deep the landlord decides to dig. Good luck!See question
We hang lived here for almost 10 yrs. The carpet wasn't in good shape when we moved in, from previous tenets.
There is no law concerning how often carpet has to be replaced in a rental property. If you think yours needs to be replaced you should put a request to the landlord in writing. Take pictures, make note of any allergies, etc. and include those in your request. Allow a reasonable period of time for the landlord to comply and if he/she does not and you are in compliance with the terms of your lease, you may be able to put your rent into escrow with the local court. This process allows you to pay rent to the court instead of to the landlord and the landlord will have to explain why they have failed to take action. Please note that carpet replacement may be a tough argument to make to the court since it is such a subjective assessment. If the carpet is bad enough and you are in a month to month arrangement you may want to give a 30-day notice to terminate your tenancy and move. Or let the landlord know you plan to do that if the carpet situation isn't handled.

Our property manager lives in the building next to us has been harassing us and our neighbors the last couple weeks. She is not the owner just the manager but is the owners poa. It start with pressuring us to mow the lawn and saying people down th...
Hello! This probably isn't harassment. What it might be is a disruption of your quiet enjoyment of the rental property - particularly if it continues and more unreasonable demands are made (i.e. don't drink beer on your porch). The property manager probably thinks she's just doing her job but she sounds a bit overzealous. I would say it's not necessarily unreasonable for her to ask you to mow the lawn and not making excessive noise outside - but if she's asking you to mow every day (or when it doesn't need it), she's complaining of noise when you aren't making any, she's demanding that you not drink beer on your porch, etc. - this could rise to a disruption of quiet enjoyment.
I would start keeping a record of her visits (date/time/manner) and specific demands. Take pictures of the condition of the lawn when she asks you to mow it, things like that. If the "harassment" continues, I would suggest that you put a request in writing for her to stop the excessive and unreasonable demands and deliver that to both her and the property owner. Be sure that you list the specific instances of her visits/demands and include pictures if possible. Request that the behavior stop and allow a reasonable time period for that to happen. If it doesn't and you are in compliance with the lease terms, you could attempt to negotiate a mutual release from the remainder of your lease (get it in writing!), and/or start the rent escrow process with your local court. This mechanism allows you to pay rent to the court instead of to the manager, and the court will look into the situation and ask the manager for an explanation. If the behavior is bad enough you may even be able to terminate your lease using this process. Keep in mind that the property manager will claim she's just enforcing the terms of your tenancy and that defense will likely be successful unless you can prove otherwise (with a "log" of her excessive visits, pictures, etc).
It may also be a good idea for you to consult with a local attorney who can review your lease and obtain more facts, perhaps even contact the property manager on your behalf to negotiate a release or a "cease fire".

Soooo here goes... my mother in law purchased a home for which were were to live in. We were told it was our home and had Plans to refinance next year after my husbands foreclosure fell off his credit. Well she decided to up and sell it out from u...
Hello, I'm sorry to hear of your situation. Without a written lease agreement in place you are a month-to-month tenant. That being the case, your tenancy is governed by landlord/tenant law (http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/5321). Your mother in law can give you a 30-day notice to terminate your tenancy for any reason or no reason. I don't think the fact that you paid the mortgage directly to the lender has any bearing/impact - it would just be considered the rent you were paying to live there. The tenant's obligations are contained in code section 5321.05 (http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/5321.05v1). You may have some repair obligations to the rental premises, but in the absence of anything written to the contrary, I would say you have no obligation to repaint. For further advice you should consult with a local attorney - use Avvo's Find a lawyer tab to locate someone in your area. I hope this helps, and best of luck to you!See question

This is the first year this is ever happened I have medical card for the kids and the father does not but he pays the state every month extra for them for medical now this year's the only year I did not get his federal tax return the state has it ...
A federal tax refund can be garnished for several reasons - one of which is State tax debt. There are other reasons - delinquent child support payments, reimbursement of unemployment compensation, nontax federal debt - so if any of those might apply to your ex, his federal refund was probably taken to pay off or apply to one of those debts. Your ex should have received communication from the State indicating why his federal return was held and where it was applied. If not he can contact them and request an explanation. Hope this helps.See question
Can I get my title back
Contact the lender and request return of the title with the lien canceled. My guess is it fell through the cracks and once you request the title they will realize you defaulted and demand the balance. If you are asking whether it's too late for them to want the balance or to repo the car, no it's not. Good luck!See question

I agree with my colleague that the situation you describe is not an illegal retaliatory eviction. My first question would be whether you are currently in a term lease (i.e. a year) or are you renting month-to-month? If you are (for example), 6 months into a 12 month lease and are otherwise in compliance with the terms of the lease, your tenancy cannot be terminated with a 30 day notice. However, if you are not in a term lease and are renting month-to-month, your tenancy CAN be terminated with a 30-day notice for any reason (or no reason). If you do not vacate within that 30 day time period the landlord can legally evict you.
I'm not sure why you would escrow your rent unless there are repair or maintenance items that the landlord has not remedied - and if there are, and that is the reason you mentioned putting your rent in escrow, that is not grounds for immediate eviction. As the previous response indicated, escrowing rent to force the landlord to comply with repair or maintenance items is a right provided by law.
If you want to provide additional facts it might help get you better guidance here, but hopefully some of your questions have been answered. You may also want to seek a personal consultation with a local attorney - many offer free initial consultations. You can use Avvo's Find a lawyer tab to locate someone in your area.

I agree with the previous responses to dispute the amounts claiming to be owed in writing stating you don't recall receiving any services for those time periods and this is the first time you've seen those invoices. The statute of limitations on oral contract is six years in Ohio, so they are still well within that time period to collect/file suit if they deem it necessary. Depending on the amount you may want to consult with and possibly retain a local attorney to assist you with this. You can use Avvo's Find a lawyer tab to find someone in your area.
