• My boyfriend received an audit from the IRS and he's asking me to help him pay.?

    He doesn't receive a w2. He is a self employed construction worker. They are asking for him to pay for the previous 4 years he has not paid his taxes for a total of a little over $36,000 The only problem is he does not have the funds available at the moment.

    He doesn't receive a w2. He is a self employed construction worker. They are asking for him to pay for the previous 4 years he has not paid his taxes for a total of a little over $36,000 The only problem is he does not have the funds available at the moment. He's asked me if I could pay the bill for him and he'll pay me back, but my question is; If the bill is paid, will that be the last of it? Will the IRS come back asking more? I have money in my savings account that I can use to pay it off, but I just need to know if the IRS will consider it paid and not coming back for more money. He's said that he ran into an emergency a few years ago and he's been playing catch up. I understand things happen. We have been together for 6 months so I know him pretty well to know that he will pay me back.

I have been working there for years so...I know they aren't accepting them until the 28th but I'm going on a trip for 2 months and just want to get this done and out the way so I can enjoy my vaca...plus I won't be home to receive the w2 anyway. I checked my stub from last year and my w2 and they match up. I don't see why this year would be any different.

  • If I lie on my tax return and claim head of household instead of single. What are chances of getting caught?

    So I want a bigger return and tempted to claim head of household even though I haven't paid over half of expenses for the year. What are the chances I get audited? My income was under $70,000.

  • So I have a question about claiming head of household. Tax related?

    So I have a roommate. We split everything 50/50. I m curious if either of us can claim head of household if we have no dependents. Hes and I are just single adults who share a home. Neither is considered a dependent. Taxes are very confusing. Both our names are on the home for the record.

  • Is it worth it to ask for a W-2 if my income was $2,150?

    Best answer: You should not have to ask for it. The employer is required by federal law to provide it to you. Since you no longer work there they will probably mail it to the address they have on file. If you've moved since you quit, then contact them to provide your new address or turn in a mail forwarding request with... show more
    Best answer: You should not have to ask for it. The employer is required by federal law to provide it to you.

    Since you no longer work there they will probably mail it to the address they have on file. If you've moved since you quit, then contact them to provide your new address or turn in a mail forwarding request with the post office.

    I'm not sure where you got the info that you need $18,000 income to file taxes, but that is incorrect. There are certain amounts of income where someone is REQUIRED to file a tax return, and they can be penalized if they don't file. But you are still allowed to file a return if you are under those limits, you just won't be penalized if you don't file.

    You most certainly should file though. Your return should take less than one hour to complete and you'll get $180 back. If you don't file then the IRS keeps that $180 and you get nothing.

    I'm guessing that if I offered to pay you $180 for 1 hour of easy computer work you'd accept, so why not spend an hour claiming your $180 tax refund. It will also be a good learning experience so you know what you're doing next year and every year after that.

  • My employer filed my W-4 incorrectly, What do I do?

    I've been working for a small warehousing company here in las vegas for 4 months now, making only $10/hourly, we have 7 employees. When I was hired, I put down Married and "1" on my W-4.

    I've been working for a small warehousing company here in las vegas for 4 months now, making only $10/hourly, we have 7 employees. When I was hired, I put down Married and "1" on my W-4. I just got my W-2, my wife and I put it into our return, and it dropped our amount down over $750 because it shows there has never been any Federal Withholding taken out of my paychecks. I asked my employer, she said "that's not right, there should have been money being taken out, well get in touch with the payroll company". My question is, does the employer benefit in some way, for filing it this way - with no federal withholding coming out? I only made about $3,700-$4,000 in these 4 months working, so having $750 taken out of our return is huge. Is Part of that $750 a fee for not lending the IRS money basically? This employer made me sign a paper when hired saying theres no overtime pay, i.e if you work 12 hours a day 7 days a week you only make $10/hr. There are 2 employees working 6 days a week, clock in at 6am and leave at 5-6pm, have Never received a cent in overtime ...I'm being told by family and friends this is highly illegal no matter what "made up paper they had us sign" according to Nevada Law. I did not want to have to Owe the IRS come tax time, thus why I filed Married and 1 dependent, so now its filed wrong, on purpose or otherwise, should my employer cover the cost of the portion that was a penalty/fee I incurred? I appreciate any answers and help. Thank you

  • Will I Get a Better Tax Return After Deducting Mortgage Interest?

And now, after owning a home for a full year and paying $10,000 in mortgage interest (everything else in our lives remaining the same in terms of salaries and all that), should I expect a bigger return from the Fed now that I can deduct mortgage interest of $10,000 and $5,000 in taxes from our net income? Thanks a lot, will reach out to CPA to help with taxes but I figured a lot of people on here are just as knowledgable.

  • I made 7,400 dollars. Do I have to file my taxes?

    Best answer: You are required to file taxes. Your employer is cheating you. A hair washer in a salon does not qualify to be self employed. Because of this mis-classification, you will have to pay 7.63% of your income that you otherwise would not. I'd file form SS-8 if I was you. This way you will only pay what you owe... show more

    I'd file form SS-8 if I was you. This way you will only pay what you owe and not your cheating employer has you paying. You will owe money since you have not paid any taxes for the year.

When the irs receives the two forms, will they assume the recent one is the updated one? Or will they add them up? In the first w4 form for my first job, I claimed 2 allowances. I know that if you have two jobs you should have a about a total of 2 allowances. So for my second w4 form, should I just put 0 and then the IRS is going to add them up? I get higher earnings on my 1st job as of now

    I have a buddy who asked me a good question because I’m not very good with tax filing. The question is the new standard deduction for an individual to file is $12,000, He claims he made a little over $11,000 in the first part of the year he worked and because he was injured the other half of the year and did not work. If the standard deduction is $12,000 and he made a little over $11,000 and his employer withheld for a little over $2000 Can he expect to get anything back on his tax return this year? He used a tax estimator tool on several different websites such as TurboTax and H&R Block and the estimation is saying he is going to get around $2000 back? Any help would be appreciated thanks

    My question is, what happens if 2 parents claim the same child. I have joint legal custody with my child's mother but I have sole physical custody. I have always claimed him. And never had an issue. Until this year. She said that she's claiming him this year. Probably because this is the only year she actually had a job. And my son's 15 now. Friend of the court said the irs will send the refund to whoever's taxes they receive first. If that's the case does it and they get hers first. Does it than become a civil case. Or will the irs make her pay the money back. Or should I call and fax then a copy of the court papers to try to avoid any delays. I do my taxes on turbo tax. Any suggestions will be helpful. Thanks
