Combining Personal and Business Tax

by Toni
(San Diego, CA, USA)

I just closed an LLC that never made any income. My accountant closed the company and added the loss to our personal income tax as income. The IRS just audited us saying our reported income from our W2 forms does not match what we claimed. My accountant is not returning my calls or emails. Did my accountant do his job correctly? Should I contest the IRS or should I just pay my penalty and move on?

Federal Income Tax on an Insurance Policy to be Cashed in

by Kay
(Erie, Pa USA)

My husband has had a $5000 life ins policy since 1968 and it is paid up many years ago. It has earned dividends since and is now worth over $9,000 cash if he surrenders it. How do we find out how much income tax or capital gain we must pay on that money when we cash it in this year 2011? We have no idea what the total amount of monthly payments we made till it was paid up. We got a letter from the Company and they were very vague and came up with This answer: The cost basis is approximately $649.99 A cash surrnder would result in a taxable gain of $3,400.01. Policy was issued prior to Aug. 13, 1982 and surrender value does not exceed $5,000 the IRS does not require this ins company to produce a Form 1099-R. However, this ruling does not neccessrily relieve a taxpaper to report gain .
How will we know whether to report it or not?

Federal Tax Withheld

by Christine
(Illinois)

My husband making about $28,000/yr only has about $550 withheld for federal taxes for 2010. I make $55,000/yr and have over $5,300 taken out for federal tax. Why such a huge difference? I use an online tax service and when I enter his W-2 info, it shows a return but after mine in entered, we owe over $1600 - only W-2 information and before itemizing. I don't understand. We both claim zero dependents throughout the year.

Husband and Wife LLC Tax Year Question

by Pamela
(Oregon)

My husband and I formed an LLC for the purpose of Construction Contracting in October of last year. We had activity but no profit and the information I could find indicated we didn't have to file a tax return.

Now I find out I was suppose to file a 1065 form for the LLC regardless of whether we made a profit or not. Since we started having activity in October AND the deadline for the calendar year has already passed (resulting in $195 per month per partner penalty for late filing) I would like to use a fiscal year of Oct 1 - Sept 30 (52-53 week tax year). I'm confused though an a few points.

The instructions on setting a tax year state that partnerships have to use the tax year that the majority partner uses - that would be me. Obviously before now I was an employee and required to file based on a calendar year and I have already filed my taxes for 2010. Can I change my own tax year to Oct-Sept with the tax year starting Oct 2010 now that I am self employed. And if yes, do I need to file form 1128 as an individual to do so? Also, it seems there is a possible exception for LLCs when the only members are husband and wife that would eliminate the requirement to file a 1065. Is this true and would that be better/easier than trying to get approval for an Oct-Sept tax year?

Massachusetts State Tax

by David

I made less than $20,000 in 2010 in Massachusetts and yet I still owe $170 even after getting tax money with held and not being penalized by not having Health Insurance. Does this seem accurate? Does anyone know if there is a minimum income that a person can have in Massachusetts so that he or she would not pay taxes or less?

Tax

by BJ
(houston tx)

Aubrey Brown is a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War. As a result of his exposure to Agent Orange during the war, Aubrey developed lung condition and is unable to work. He received $12,000 of Social Security disability payments in the current year. He reasons that the payments should be excluded from his gross income because the payments are compensation for the physical injury he suffered as a result of his service in the armed forces. Aubrey has asked you if his thinking is correct. Your response should be based on the structure of the file memo discussed in class on Thursday (see copy attached) and supported by tax law authorities.

Tax Question For Ontario, Canada...

by Cody
(ont, canada)

Which one of these would be the right answer?

1. if a Canada based corporation makes $500,000 BUT I want to take out $100,000 as a salary, that means I would have to pay $27,400 in personal income tax AND then I would pay an additional $78,000 in corporate tax, right?

OR…

1. or if the corporation makes $500,000 I still pay $97,500 in corporation tax regardless if I take out any personal income. Like for example, if I took out $100,000 in personal income would I be taxed the $27,400 (in personal income tax) on top on the $97,500 in corporation taxs?

Taxes on Lottery Win of Season Bronco Tickets

by Pam
(Aurora, CO arapahoe)

We just won a lottery 2nd chance drawing. It was on a non-winning scratch ticket. We entered this drawing and won Season Bronco Tickets. They say they are worth $6700 and we will be getting a 1099 so we need to pay the taxes.

If I gamble and win a jackpot over $1200 I am also issued a 1099 but I keep track of my gambling losses so I can offset it. What I am not sure of is since it was a lottery drawing but it was for something other than cash can I still offset the taxes by my gambing losses? I am very concerned because I dont have a job right now and cant afford the $1900 for the approx. taxes.

My father added me on his house deed back in 2009. I have been claiming the house since then when filing my personal income tax however I received a notice from the IRS and being audited because from their books I should not be claiming it for tax purposes.

What are the legalities of home tax credits ? Should I be submitting this claim or should my father do this on his own personal income tax? I thought I can since this was advised by our tax person.

Wages Calculated by ADP for Tax Reporting That I Never Received Payment For

by J Guffey
(Seattle, WA)

I worked for a company that used ADP to calculate wages. These wages were reported to the IRS quarterly. However, when I left my employment I had not been paid for four of those pay periods even though checks were run and taxes calculated through ADP. Shortly after leaving... the company went out of business. So my question is how do I report my earnings this year for tax purposes when the IRS will be told that I was paid for more than I actually was?

Finder's Fee Taxable?

by Shelly
(Washington State)

A Washington State company will be collecting a Finder's Fee from a Canadian manufacturer. Do we need to collect GST?

What if the manufacturer was in the US, would we need to collect sales tax or is this considered a personal service and exempt from sales tax?


In my experience, a finder's fee is considered a commission. In the US, this would be considered a personal service which is exempt from sales tax.

GST applies to products & services "delivered in Canada". Since the Washington State company provided a service, was it rendered in Canada? If so, GST has to apply. If the service was rendered in the US, you would not charge GST on the services.

Following, is what the Canada Revenue Agency says about exported services:

"You do not charge GST/HST on services you perform totally outside Canada, or on services that relate to real property situated outside Canada.

Services (other than transportation services) you perform on temporarily imported goods are zero-rated. The goods must be brought into Canada for the sole purpose of having the service performed on them and must be exported as soon as possible. Any parts supplied along with these services are also zero-rated.

Certain services provided to a non-resident person (but not to an individual while the individual is in Canada) that are performed all or partly in Canada may be zero-rated, such as:

-certain advisory, professional, or consulting services;

-advertising services to an unregistered non-resident person;

-advisory, consulting, or research services to help a non-resident person establish a residence or business in Canada;

-services and parts for goods or real property acquired to fulfill an obligation under warranty for an unregistered non-resident person;

-custodial or nominee services for the non-resident person's securities or precious metals;

-training services to an unregistered non-resident person (other than an individual) to teach non-resident individuals or to give examinations for courses leading to certificates, diplomas, licenses, or similar documents, or classes or license ratings that attest to the individuals' competence or to give an exam to practice or perform a trade or vocation;

-services to an unregistered non-resident person of destroying or discarding goods, or the services of dismantling goods for the purpose of exporting them;

-services to an unregistered non-resident person of testing or inspecting goods acquired or brought into Canada for this service and the goods are to be destroyed or discarded in the course of providing the service or on its completion;

-services of acting as an agent for a non-resident person or services of arranging for, procuring, or soliciting orders for supplies by or to the person when the service relates to a zero-rated property or service, or if the supply to or by the non-resident person is made outside Canada;

-and services made in Canada to a non-resident person by electronic means, may be zero-rated. For more information, see GST/HST Technical Information Bulletin B-090, GST/HST and Electronic commerce.

Remember that you can claim input tax credits to recover the GST/HST you paid or owe on purchases and expenses related to your zero-rated goods and services."

Thank you for your question. I hope my answer helped. If you are still unsure, you can contact the Canada Revenue Agency at http://www.cra.gc.ca

Understanding Gift Taxes

My uncle invested in gold when the price was low ($2000) and now has several bars of gold worth quite a bit ($25,0000). He would like to give each of the nieces and nephews a bar. Do the nieces and nephews have to declare a gift of $25,000 and pay taxes on the gift or is the gift considered a $2000 gift and therefore less than the $13,000 limit? In the latter case I would assume then that taxes would be paid on the gains at the time each niece or nephew sold the bar.

Can you help me understand this situation before he gives us his gift?

Thanks for your help.

Correcting Older Tax Returns

by Robert Harris
(Galt, CA)

Is it possible to correct or ammend tax returns from 2003-04-05? A mistake by a tax preparer has caused an arbitrary tax penalty that exceeded my total imcome. The issue is a line listing a loan to shareholder. This did not happen. I in fact had pledged assets of that amount when the business started. No loan was given to me. In addition this tax preparer did this each of 3 years.

The IRS in reviewing my tax filings after the business filed chapter 7 came after me for loans I did not pay back to the co and assessed taxes and penalties to the amount of about 265,000.00 then out of the goodness of their hearts reduced it to 25,000.00 and added it to my personal backruptcy 13 payments without a hearing , evidence or testimony. I was threatend with prison and that this was all I could do. After doing this they added on 2000.00 for 2008 taxes because of a future audit and filed with the court.

Now they have audited 2009 amd are about to audit 2010. I have those kind of covered but I would like to have the falsely assessed amounts changed if ammendment were possible. Enclosed is the page that has the preparers mistake. She realized by 2006 that she did not know how to prepare subchapter s corp with my income taxes and recommended I find someone who did. Also would want to ammend to joint return as she filed it with wife only.

Double Taxation Query

hello Sir,
I need a solution on my following question.
My Husband work with a MNC in Bombay. Now he has been deputed for one year to Norway.

He is getting his monthly salary regularly in India. Also he is getting salary in abroad where tax is deducted on his Indian as well as income in Norway. Also tax is deducted on his Indian income in Bombay office. So there is double taxation of Indian income.

So what is the way to avoid the double taxation? Also can he transfer his salary in abroad to his Indian salary account? and after transfer whether he is going to tax on that amount also.
Whether it is safe to bring the foreign currency and convert in Indian rupees later on?

Hoping ur expert opinion on my queries in reply.
Thanking u.

How Does a TAXID# Change Things?

by Lyle
(Tampa)

I have a side business as a freelance photographer, working with real estate agents and local businesses to get product photos taken and posted online. Several people have told me that I should apply for a Tax ID # because this would open up many new opportunities for me. I have contacted the IRS for more information and gotten no reply. I have spoken with professionals at H&R block. No one has been able to explain to me how my responsibilities change when tax season comes around if I have a TAX ID#. All they say is "It depends on your situation." Can someone please tell me if having a TAX ID # means you have to fill out different forms during tax season? Track certain other expenses? What, if anything changes? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Property Tax

My father just showed me a file of all his local property tax payments (50 years worth) and told me to make sure I used these to reduce the cost basis of the house when I inherited it. Yes, he has never claimed property tax on his Schedule A.

He says he was told that the property tax would reduce the cost basis of the house, but I have looked through the IRS documents online and cannot find property tax as a cost basis reduction. Which one of us is right, and, if me, what can we do to claim any of those old property taxes?

Filing Personal Taxes Including a K-1

Situation: A relative passed away in 2008. There is still money remaining in a bank account included in his estate. Currently we, his descendents, claim our portion of interest earned on that money each year on a K-1.

Last year, I claimed $11 in interest earned on my K-1. After tax preparer fees, an exemption, etc., on the interest that the remaining balance in the account earned, we owed no taxes last year.

Nothing has changed this year. The same amount of money is still in the account, the interest rate is the same, etc. Per a conversation with the Executor, he is in no hurry to file the estate taxes and provide the K-1s to us.

My situation: I am in quite a bind financially, I need to file my taxes asap. Can I estimate how much interest earned I will be claiming on this year's K-1 and file my taxes? If so, how much trouble will I create for myself when the estate taxes are finally filed and my K-1 is possibly off by a few dollars?

Normally, I would just wait to file. However, this year has special circumstances that could cause me to suffer great financial loss if I do not tend to them asap.

Thank you for your assistance.

Tax Debt

by Krista
(Kansas)

My soon to be ex-husband and I filed our taxes jointly in 2009. I had surrendered a life insurance policy that year and it added income onto my regular income.

I never received a 1099 for the life insurance policy, therefore didn't claim the extra income, which two years later resulted in an audit and a tax debt.

My husband and I seperated the end of 2010, therefore in 2011, he filed head of household. Can they take his income tax return for this year because we filed jointly the year the debt incurred?

The notices only list my social security number, but he gets copies of everything. They send them to both of us. My concern is that if they do, I am going to be responsible for paying him back what he would have received. (Ouch).

Thanks for any quidance!

Tax Forms From College

by Lorena Fosta

Hello I recently filed my taxes about a week ago and the person who filed my taxes did not include any college credit. I was told that numerous students from my school at Heald College received $1,000.00 back just for having been a student.

I did not. Which makes no sense at all if I have been attending school for 2 years. She said that it would not have made a difference. What should I do if she only filed my one job that I had during my school year?

I have a friend that told me she had filed her taxes already and was being refunded $4,100.00. She stated she filed Head of Household but had no dependents to claim and had earned no real Income. She said there was a program or grant or something but that's all she new. Is it the Stimulus Check, or The Recovery and Revitalization Grant or what?

Thank you for your question about how are taxpayers that dont pay taxes receiving refunds.

In order to file Head of Household you have to pass certain requirements, one of which is that you are able to claim a dependent exemption. Therefore, there isn't anything that I've heard of that would enable her to file as Head of Household without a dependent. If she did so, she will likely be audited or sent a correction letter and bill for reimbursement.

Regards!

I Always Owe Income Taxes

I Always Owe Income Taxes

For the last several years my husband and I always seem to owe income taxes. We are not what you would call rich by any means and are having a very difficult time keeping up with the tax bills.

We both claim zero all year long. Is there anything we can do throughout the year to alleviate some of this?

Domestic Partner Insurance Premiums Post-Tax?

by Christopher Burns
(Riverbank, CA, Stanislaus County)

My domestic partner's medical insurance through my work is taken out post-tax. I know for Federal purposes that can't be used as a deduction on income taxes.

However, I was wondering if anybody knew if it can be deducted on CA income taxes as CA recognizes domestic partners?

I've been searching the internet but haven't found anything concrete about this so I'm hoping to find something solid here.

Taxes Mistakenly Withheld

by Mary
(Duxbury, MA, USA)

My 17 year old son, a full time high school student made $3000 during 2011. His employer mistakenly withheld taxes for a couple of paychecks until my son realized he should be exempt. He filled out a corrected W2 form. Should he file to get back his federal and state withholding?

Does he fill the forms out and write in 0 for tax or write exempt? Thanks for your help!


Thank you for your question regarding taxes mistakenly withheld.

You will want to go ahead and have your son file a dependent tax return so that he can get a full refund of the taxes withheld.

When he fills out his form W4 for taxes to be withheld from his paycheck he can write exempt if you do not want any taxes taken out of his paychecks.

Regards!

No Tax Payments Anywhere...

by Nicole
(Middle East)

Hello
I started work in the Middle East three months ago and am now a non-resident from the UK and also from my home country in Europe - emigrated.

* So I do not pay taxes here (do not worry I will be come very rich here!) However how I can inform people that I should not get charged any tax from invoices of business that I did in other countries, ie. europe/us. E.g. went on holiday in Europe and booked my holiday via expedia, so was charged £150GBP tax - which I should not pay.

I am also setting up a company in a tax free haven - I can offer services with no tax invoice - but again same question how do I make sure that I do not pay tax over any services/products I want in other countries with tax.

Does anyone know someone who can assist with these questions?

Thank you.

Nicole

What Age Can You Do Your Own Tax Return

Age and Taxes

Age and Taxes

I started working march 2011 but I was 17. On october 2011 I turned 18. From the age of 18 untill now thats the money I'll be getting back or from the time I started working?

Thank you for asking the question, what age can you do your own tax return.

It doesn't matter how old you were when you earned W-2 wages and had taxes withheld. The full amount of wages and withholdings that you earned in the entire year, regardless of age, will be what your refund is based upon.

Regards!
