- Q. Our MA divorce court date was 11-30. Can we file taxes as single?
- A: If you were divorced as of December 31, you are and may file as "single". Unless, of course, you qualify for head of household status.
- Q. What does our church need have in line to legally rent to a for-profit daycare?
- A: My experience with 501(c) exempt organizations is limited. But I can provide this: The church should be concerned about what is called "Unrelated Business Income". The Internal Revenue Service defines the income generated from unrelated business activities as income from a trade or business regularly carried on, that is not substantially related to the purpose that is the basis of the organization's exemption from tax. What that all means is if providing daycare services is not largely related to the church's non-profit mission or objectives, then it may have taxable income from that daycare or rental. Related to this point, categorizing the receipts as "donations" is merely superficial. It does not change the true nature of the payments. Now, as a practical matter, most local church organizations fail to file the appropriate IRS Form 990 series, and report unrelated business income. Occasionally, they later become blind-sided with tax, interest and penalties resulting from IRS audits. I would hire an experienced certified public accountant to maintain a watch over the church's tax obligations. This will help ensure reporting compliance, transparency, and preparedness if there is a tax obligation. J Anton Collins www.StopIRSproblem.com
- Q. My husband & my mother-n-law filed our taxes & signed my name without my consent or my knowledge of him claiming me.
- A: It sounds like you suspect that your husband has acted fraudulently. This situation is much more common that you might think. Therefore, IRS has organized several methods for you to report the tax return filing, to report the inappropriate claim of dependents, and to clear your good name. You will be able to file your own accurate tax return, and even claim your any exemption for dependents, to which you may be lawfully entitled. Look at this page on "How Do You Report Suspected Tax Fraud Activity?" https://www.irs.gov/individuals/how-do-you-report-suspected-tax-fraud-activity I understand that you want part of any tax refund, which may possibly be fraudulently received by your husband. However, concern about refunds is not part of my answer here.
- Q. I sold a home that I’ve occupied as my primary residence for the last four years. Do I have to pay taxes on the profit?
- A: I do agree with Attorney Blackburn. When you file your return, please make certain that you supplement Form 1040, Schedule D and Form 8949, to include a statement that references 26 U.S.C. § 121 - U.S. Code - Exclusion of gain from sale of principal residence. Be certain that you read the statute, and provide this information to your tax return preparer, as well. J Anton StopIRSproblem.com
- Q. My husband and I have an s-corp in CA and we are the only officers in our s-corp.
- A: I agree with Attorney Blackburn that the premiums may be deducted. The expenses may be deductible as compensation to the recipient. However, this is not advised because they become subject to payroll taxes at both the company and individual level. This treatment may be more helpful when there are additional officers / owners. Since you two are the only owners, those expenses CAN be deducted, but SHOULDN'T be.
