A: The only way to know is to have a Tax Attorney contact Georgia and conduct a State Tax Investigation. Please let me know if my firm can help: 855-900-1040. The statue of limitations for Georgia runs longer than the IRS. Best, Chad Silver Sliver Tax Group
Q. I have a signed 8332 and divorce decree grants me to claim child on taxes. Can I still claim if I have arrears balance?
A: The new Tax Code changes as a result of the Jobs Act removed your ability to claim a child as a dependent. You may still be eligible for child care tax credits. This is the first year for the new changes and you may be surprised (happy or mad) about the results. Best, Chad Silver Attorney at Law
Q. We need help understanding Arkansas Code 26-36-301 as it applies to our specific situation.
A: If there was judgment on the balance owed against you it would be very difficult and costly to dispute. The smartest way to handle that would be good tax planning to ensure you have no refund coming back at the end of the year for the creditor to intercept. If you can ensure the tax withholding from your pay-stubs are proper along with estimated tax payments, it is likely no money can be intercepted.
Q. Can my current wife and I gift my townhome to my son and his mother, my first wife without paying a gift tax?
A: This depends on how much the value of the townhome is. There are tax free gifts available but it depends on the amount to be gifted. Please give my office a call so we can discuss the proper gift tax returns and amounts you can gift tax free. Call Silver Tax Group at 855-900-1040 Best, Chad
Q. Hello. Does a person in a long term care inpatient facility in NY have to pay taxes? SS, 401K, pension?
A: The only legal tool to stop collection activity would be to have an Tax Attorney negotiate a hardship status with the IRS. Just because she was admitted to a long term inpatient care facility does not negate the legal duty to pay taxes. However, there are a number of avenues available to prevent collection of the taxes, reduce tax liability, and adjust tax witholding. Please give my office a call at 855-900-1040 and I'll be happy to speak with you about this. Best, Chad Silver, Esq.
