Legal Answers
38 Questions Answered
Q. I am 59 years old and my father wants to gift me 300k do I have to pay taxes for it
A: The recipient of the gift does not pay taxes. The person giving the gift of that amount files a gift tax return to determine if they have to pay taxes for the gift.
Q. Hey! My boss withheld taxes from my paychecks but he filled less money on my w2s for the last 3 years,what to do?
A: Ask him to correct it in writing by email or certified letter. Give him a reasonable time to fix it (2 weeks) or you will file an SS8 form so you can report the error. Amend your previous returns with the SS8 if he does not respond.
Q. How long do you have to own and live in your house to get the capital gain tax?
A: An asset held over one year is treated under the long term capital gains rate. Assets held under one year are treated under short term rates. If you are referring to the exclusion of income from the sale of your home, if you owned and lived in the place for two of the five years before the sale, then up to $250,000 of profit is tax-free. If you are married and file a joint return, the tax-free amount doubles to $500,000.
