Backdating a Claim for Mortgage Set Up Fee

by Rob
(Somerset, United Kingdom)

Hi all. I'm not sure if your excellent site covers questions from United Kingdom residents - hope so.

In December 2009 I purchased a buy to let property with a buy to let mortgage. There was a £1500 'set up fee' for this mortgage. I decided to pay off the fee in March of this year to save paying interest on it. I have recently read that it might be possible to claim this set up fee against income from the property to reduce the tax liability. My questions are..is this set up fee allowable against income? and if it is, can I backdate a claim to the Inland Revenue. Hope you can help. Many thanks, Rob Morrison.

Can I Claim my 24 Year Old Full Time Student on My Tax Return?

by Penny
(Petaluma, CA)

My daughter is 24 and a full time college student in the Masters Program at Sac State. She will be a full time student for about 3 more years. My question...can she still be claimed on taxes for either my ex-husband or myself if she is a full time student? Or because she is 24...she will have to be on her own?

Thank you very much!


In order to claim a dependency exemption for your daughter she would need to meet all of the qualifications. Unfortunately, she would not meet the age test which states that she must be a full-time student under the age 24 at the end of the year.

You can, however, claim a qualifying relative expemption for her if she made under $3,400 in gross income and you can prove that you paid more than half of her total support for the year.

Thank you for your question. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

Can I Claim My Child

by Jeff Meyers
(Baltimore, MD. 21236)

If My Child is 16 yrs old In High School/College still living at home and has a job. Can i still clam him on my return if he decides to file his own taxes?

Hello Jeff,

Thank you for your question.

Yes, if your child is 16 in school living at home and you provide over half the cost of his living you can still claim him on your tax return if he decides to file his own taxes. He will need to know this, as he will not be able to claim the exemption for himself. He will have to check the box that says he was claimed by someone else.

Claiming a Child on Your Taxes

I live in Florida, and I have two children whom we have joint custody... however, they live with the other parent. I have them the entire Summer and 3-4 days a week, not all overnights though. My question is, if I go through and count the days they have stayed overnight with me to see if I have had them half the year... is it only overnights that count or is it also the days I picked them up from school and had them until 8 at night? I do not pay child support, but I provide quite a bit for my children both for my home and the other parent. I feel that it would be fair to be able to claim at lease one of my children... but the other parent is really un-cooperative and well, just selfish. They have claimed both children for the past four years. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Can I Claim Capital Loss?

by Tom
(New York)

Hi,

Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.

Here's the situation. I was on the board of directors of a small company and was given stock as payment for my work on the board. I reported the value of that stock (between $0.15 and $0.25 per share) as business income and paid regular income taxes on it.

Two years ago, I left the Board and was given warrants (options) as compensation. The expiration date of the warrants is fast approaching and I have to decide whether to exercise the warrants or not. The warrants are cashless exercise, so I won't have to outlay any money, but I've been told I'll have to report the value of the warrants as income in the year they are exercised.

Here's the question. Assuming I exercise the warrants and therefore end up paying taxes on the value of the warrants, if the company were to go bankrupt and the value of the stock goes to zero, is there any way for me to recoup some of the taxes I have paid?

In the case of both the stock I was given and the warrants I will presumably exercise, I have reported a value which if the company goes bankrupt will end up as zero. Can I claim a capital loss and use that to offset future income?

The reason I want to know this now is that this obviously changes the risk. If I have to pay taxes with no possibility of ever getting it back if the company flops, then maybe I don't want to exercise the warrants (the company is still a high risk deal). On the other hand, if I can get at least some of the taxes back eventually, that lowers the risk.

Thanks in advance.

Claiming College Son

I have a 19 year old son who works part time and attended college full time. Who would benefit more with claiming that child. Would it be me for paying part of his tuition or does he benefit himself by if no one claims him. I had claimed him last year and he was asked the question if any one is claiming him he said yes.
So again, who would benefit more, myself or my son.

Thanks and Regards

Claiming Jury Duty

by Jason

I just filed my taxes and forgot to report the money I made from jury duty. I was on grand jury and probably received appx. $700.

I had to turn all of the money over to my employer so it wasn't really money in my pocket. Since the taxes are already submitted, do I really have to do anything to fix them?

Claiming Money From Odd Jobs

It has been a rough year for my boyfriend and I. He collected unemployment for the first half of the year but it wasn't very much. He did put in applications every week so I did odd jobs off Craigslist and such cleaning houses etc. etc.

I was paid in cash and not thinking of tax time I didn't keep records. I do know how much I made. How do I claim that on my taxes? I made about 3600 over a 5 month period and worked at Walmart for a month as Temp holiday. My boyfriend got a job it lasted 2 months lost it got a Temp job for 2 weeks so he did the same thing but since he can do construction he made quite a bit more about 6700 and kept receipts for tools how do we claim this income without getting ourselves or anyone else in trouble?


Hello,

Thank you for your question.

Typically, money earned from odd jobs would be reported as self employment income on schedule C. The great thing about being self employed is that you do legitimately get to deduct any expenses incurred in doing business such as tools, supplies, etc.. The not so great thing about being self employed is that you have to pay for your own social security and medicare tax. However, the amount owed would be entirely dependent upon what your net income is after expenses. It sounds like you wouldn't have much of a liability if any. If you do end up owing, you can always file an installment agreement request form and make monthly payments as necessary.

Claiming my 21 year old daughter's tuition and not claiming her as a dependent.

My question is this. My wife and I paid tuition for my 21 year old daughter spring semester 2009 while she lived at home. She already filed, and I want to use the tuition cost on my tax return and not claim her as a dependent. Is this legal and possible?

Hello,

Thank you for your question.

I'm sorry, but you can only deduct eduction expenses if you are claiming your daughter as a dependent.

Claiming my 24 year old daughter

I would like to know whether I am required to claim my 24 year old daughter on my federal income tax return in order for her to stay on my healthcare coverage.

If I file claiming her as a dependent, I will get $500 benefit and she has to pay $700. If I don't claim her, she gets $500 refund, and I will have to pay $500 more in taxes.

My husband's employer requires us to complete a questionnaire every year which stipulates that in order for our children under age 26 to get medical coverage they need to be claimed as dependents on our taxes and need to reside at our address, and we have to responsible for at least one half of their support.

This seems inconsistent with what we've researched and we need your clarification.

Thank you.

Grandparents Ability to Claim Grandkids as Dependents


(Michigan)

Aug 2009 our daughter and two grandkids (9 &13) moved in with us after a divorce. Our daughter works full time making around #32,000 yr plus receives $6000 in child support. In the divorce, she claims one and her ex claims one of the children. With her debts (mortgage and 2nd mortgage plus one credit card from the marrigae) she has to help pay, she can not afford to live independent with the two kids.

We provide 95% of food, shelter, utilities etc for them and we are both on SS and pension income. Since our daughter leaves for work at 5:30am we have complete responsibility for the kids during the daytime, with school, appointments etc. Needless to say, this has placed a burden on us but we do what we have too.

Last year our daughter claimed both kids and head of household which was best for her and ex with taxes.

Question is: Can we claim anything for our taxes this year to help us out? We don't want to mess her up on her taxes but would help us if we could claim them as dependents.

I Earned Extra Money Where Do I Claim That

I earned extra money doing side jobs like mowing grass cleaning yards driveways ect. Where do I claim that on tax forms 1040? I'm trying to file online and can't find where I report monies earned.

Hello,

Thanks for the question.

In most cases you can claim amounts earned from sidejobs totalling under 600.00 on line 21, Other Income.

Otherwise, you would report this as self-employed income on schedule C-EZ and may have to pay your own social security and medicare tax on it.

MFS, Both Claim Home Exclusion

I lived in my home for 5 years, then got married and we bought another home. We are planning on selling both homes 2 years after the move. At that time, I will meet the capital gains exclusion requirements for the first house, and we will both meet the requirements for the second house (Requiremnet: House must have been primary residence for 2 out of the last five years.) It aslo says that if we file jointly, we can only claim one exclusion every 2 years. So this means that if we file separately, we can each claim an exclusion that year?

Who Can Claim Foster Care Children As Dependents?

by Oxval
(Minnesota)

In 2009, I voluntarily placed my 2 disabled biological children in foster care. The foster family receives income from the county for their care. The children lived with the foster family the entire year. During 2009, I contributed to their support for items such as groceries, clothing, insurance premiums, school lunches, school supplies, etc...Although the foster family contributed 'some', my financial contributions were very likely the majority of their support. (greater than 50%). My financial support for both children totaled approx $10,000 (I have records). I therefore had claimed my 2 children as dependents on my 2009 return. I received a letter from the IRS, stating that another party claimed my children as dependents, and that only 1 party can claim them as dependents. Given my situation, who has the right to claim the children as dependents? Thanks

I have a situation. So I get a call from my sons mom telling me she wants to claim my son in her taxes this year. She told me she talk to the irs and that they told her she can with a pin# bcuz she don't have papers so she don't have a ssn.

Also she doesn't work at all but she was getting welfar and now she is getting childsupport by me. Now me on the other hand I've been working for 5 years already and I've been claiming my son since the day he was born.

Even after me and my spouse devorce I was still cliaming him. I make over 30,000 and year and plus I pay child support. We also have joint custody 50/50. Until this day she hasn't had a job but yet she still wants to claim him. Now my question is doesn't she need to bring in some income so she can file taxes and claim him?

Claim Spouse Exemption for 2011

My wife passed away in nov of 2011..can I still claim her exemption on my 2011 tax return..??

Thank you for your claim spouse exemption for 2011 question. I am sorry for your loss!

If your wife passed away in November of 2011, you absolutely can still claim her exemption on your 2011 tax return. In addition, if you have children, you will be able to file as Widowed for the two years following.

Take care!

Who Can Claim?

My daughter lives with her dad who doesnt work and hasnt worked all year and his girlfriend. My ex husband wants his girlfriend to claim my daughter on her taxes.

Can she do that since she is not even a relative of hers and if so can she get earned income on her? Can I claim her since I have worked all year and partially financially supported her?

Claim Year For Baby

I gave birth to my baby march 24, 2012. Can I claim my baby for my 2011 taxes?

Thank you for your taxes question regarding whether you can claim your baby. If you child was born anytime after January 1, 2012 you would only be able to claim the child in the year 2012. So unfortunately, you will not be able to claim your baby for your 2011 taxes if the baby was born in March of 2012.
