    So I want to file my taxes online, but I have a few concerns. For people who have used the free versions of these Free File software: How did it work out? Is it pretty safe? How soon did you receive your return? Did you have to pay any hidden fees for these programs? And have you used these programs years in a row with it still being free, or did you have it free for the first year then have to pay for the next year? Please specify which software you used to file your taxes when answering these questions, please. Thank you!

    Today I got one of the W-2 from a job I had in 2017. I will also be receive three more. My dad (who is not an accountant) said I might not get any money back from my refund if I made over $5,000 in 2017. This will be my first time doing taxes, so I am not sure how this works. Please help.

  • Can someone please explain to me how self employment tax works?

    So if I’m a sole proprietor and I have an employee, I pay 15.3 percent of the 92.35 percent of net profit that I make and then match the employee’s 7.65 percent tax? In a little confused but maybe I’m right?

  • Will filing two W-2s lower my return ?

    Will filing two W-2s lower my return ? In January I was working one job then in February I started a new job which I am working in now. Will that lower my return? I am concerned because I am also filing self employed for some jobs I have done freelancing. I wanted my return to help with that too.

  • Should I go ahead and file my taxes or call the IRS?

    When I first started my job in 2016, I lived in Kentucky but worked in Indiana. When I filed my taxes that year, I filed for Kentucky. At the end of 2016, I moved to Indiana to be closer to work. I ve lived in Indiana the entire year of 2017. I just received my W-2, and it shows my Indiana address but shows that... show more
    When I first started my job in 2016, I lived in Kentucky but worked in Indiana. When I filed my taxes that year, I filed for Kentucky. At the end of 2016, I moved to Indiana to be closer to work. I ve lived in Indiana the entire year of 2017. I just received my W-2, and it shows my Indiana address but shows that the state portion of my taxes came from Kentucky. Last year, I guess I forgot to update my I9 form from Kentucky to Indiana. My question is: can I go ahead and file for Kentucky and use my address that I used back in 2016 (my parents address), or do I need to contact the IRS? I don t want to get in trouble. What would even happen if I went to the IRS and told them my issue? Would I be able to file this year?

    I worked at Sonic about 1 1/2 years ago. I was only there for 2 weeks and worked 5 days and I quit because it was terrible. I didn t tell anyone I quit and I was too scared to go back and ask for my paycheck. I called the store manager about 2 weeks later asking about my paycheck and she said I would have to return my uniform (I donated it). I asked for Corporate s phone # and she said they would call me and they never did. I could not find the Corporate phone # anywhere and I eventually gave up. They still sent me my W-2 last year and now that it s tax season again, I was wondering if it s too late to still get my paycheck. I know that they re supposed to keep W-2 s for at least 7 years.

    2017 was my first year as a commercial truck driver. I worked roughly 6 months. I have been given a 1099 by my employer. I mad $20,860 on a 1099, no taxes taken out. My wife made $4380 working part time. Her income is on a W2. She only paid in roughly $200 to federal and $80 to state. We have one child. I have accounted for every mile I had to drive for business this year. I was staying out of state from August 2017 to November 2017 and commuting back and forth to the work site where the owners Semi Truck was parked. I have found a total of 9,718 Business miles. I also have roughly $500 in food receipts and $800 in Fuel I was forced to pay for in the Semi Truck, a truck I don't own. I purchased a vehicle to use for traveling to and from the truck. I pay $255 a month on this vehicle but I'm not sure if this is deductible. Working last year, I made almost the same amount of money on a W2 and we got back a large refund. I was told by a friend that I may owe the IRS over $5000 after filing. is this true?
