Can I have my husband's paycheck made out in my name?

by Wondering...

My husband is caring for my aunt and is paid from her bank account. Can I have the checks made out to me so he doesn't spend it all at the bar? If yes, how do we claim it on our taxes when filing? We live in Michigan and have one child, he has another child from a previous relationship. Thank you.

Can Spouse's Taxes Be Garnished For Student Loan Default?

I am currently a stay at home mom for my 2 children from a previous marriage. I intend to continue to stay home for the next several years. I have a student loan that is in default. My boyfriend and I have been talking about marriage and we were wondering, can his taxes be garnished for my student loan default? We want him to be able to claim head of household and to claim the children as dependents but are concerned that the government can garnish the tax returns for the loan, even though I will have no income to claim since I am not working. Is there any way when we do marry, that he can claim head of household and the children as dependents without having his taxes garnished?

Does the Alien Wife Need to File or be Included in my Return?

I have a German wife who has always been a housewife with no income. I run a one-man tiny business. I have always filed "Married filing jointly". Is it possible to just leave her out of the return as she has no income? Or must it be "Married filing Separately"?

Husbands Income Paid To Widow


(Dallas, Texas)

My husband worked for a company for 30 years. He passed away 12-25-08. He was a salesman for the company and was paid commission. The company paid him his commission on a 3 month delay. That being said, when he died in 12-08, his final 3 months of pay was divided into January, February and March and was automatically deposited into our account.

The company never sent me any paperwork ... W-2 form, etc. Last week I received an IRS statement, stating the company put his earnings on a 1099 form and filed it under my social security number. Is this correct? I know that his salary needs to be filed now, even though no forms were sent, but on MY social security number.

In checking further, I think the company also filed a W-2 form on him. Kind of seems like a double dip here. Now they are saying the 1099 is correct, and have sent in a W-2 correction, but again, no records.

Any advice.

In Texas, spousal support is tax deductable (child support is not).
