Complicated!!!

by Eric
(Crete, IL, USA)

I have a pretty complicated set of questions related to tax credits. I bought a home in 2008 that required some extensive repair. My tax professional at the time urged me to apply for the first time home buyer credit offered for that year. I did and opened up pandora's box to an audit. I was not living in the house yet, and in fact was in a construction loan to rehabilitate and reconstruct the home. IRS denied me the credit due to the fact that I was not living there at the time of credit application. Now it had been almost 2 years and the house was finally complete and habitable. I am now recently living in the home and have changed all my legal responsibilities to this address. Given that I was already denied the credit once, is it possible to apply for the credit on a past tax year, despite the folly? Basically under what circumstances would I still be eligible, if at all? I am about to file my 2010 tax return and was wondering if it were worth my while to try and ammend past returns? Anyone have some insight or a definitive answer on this or had any instance similar to this that might put me at ease?

Homeless Senior

by Maria
(California)

My 85 year old mom has been living in a nursing facility for the past three months. She pays share of cost to the facility with her monthly Social Security check which only leaves her $35.00 per month.

We just found out she owes $12,000 back taxes to the IRS. If she cannot pay this amount, can the IRS garnish her Social Security check even if this is the only income she receives and gives to the nursing facility?

Installment plan

by Sylvia
(Pittsburgh)

I used turbo tax for the first time to file my 2007 state income tax. I obviously did it incorrect because the irs let me know in 2009 that i owed 350 to them because they didn't receive my paperwork. I am now in an installment plan to pay it off. I owe federal tax 3000 dollars this year can i still apply for an installment plan to pay that off.

Intercept

If I owe traffic tickets which refund will be intercepted state or federal?

Thank you for your tax intercept question. If you owe traffic tickets and are expecting your refund to be intercepted, you should typically expect your state refund to be the one that is intercepted as traffic tickets are a state issue.

Loan From Director

by G Thomas
(Scotland)

Hello, I needed a small loan for my business and went to my bank who refused to loan the business any money.

So I had some savings which I loaned the company. I called it a loan from director.

Unfortunately after a couple of years the company went bust (it had been trading for 11 years) but during the two years I had managed to pay back 75% of the loan to myself.

The government receiver put my case over to a private receiver and now they are claiming I owe the money I lent the company. Its £50,000 - I haven't had a job since my business went bust so I haven't got that kind of money anymore.

I tried to explain that the money loaned was from my own savings and it was a repayment of a loan but they want this money to pay the creditors. One of the creditors on the list is the fee for this private receiver.

I don't know what to do?

Mobile Office

I am curious as to whether or not a rv can be used as an expense as a mobile office?

If the RV you are using is being used exclusivley for business as a mobile office, it can be used as an expense as a mobile office on your income tax return. Make sure to differentiate between all of the different types of expenses that are included such as gasoline, maintenance & repairs, interest expense, utilities, etc.

PF Contribution Reduced

by Vivek
(Mumbai)

Recently I have joined a new organization. Before joining it was agreed the PF contribution as per normal practice 12% on basic. But after my joining I came to know that for 12% contribution, basic is considered as Rs 6500 as ceiling amount. Now because of that my PF deduction is coming very less.

Company is adding the difference amount in Persoal Pay. Now my worry is as soon as it becomes part of salary, it will attract the tax.

When I had a discussion with HR, they are saying it will be one and the same as you can show the savings from this income in 1 Lakh slab and save the tax as PF contribution will be less.

I am not very clear about this. Can experts through some light on this ?

Thanks in advance

Vivek

Recent Employer Filed Bankruptcy

by LuckyBOOO
(Lahaina)

What will happened if my recent employer went bankcrupt earlier this year. Do I still get a w-2 form from them?

Thank you for your question about your recent employer filing bankruptcy.

Even if your employer filed bankruptcy, they are still required to file all pertinent tax forms for wages paid out during the year.

If you do not end up receiving your W-2 from them and are not able to get in contact with anyone, you are required to file the information yourself using the year to date information from your last paycheck stub.

Regars!

Relocation Expense Question

by M
(R)

I recently moved from Chicago to Boston and am planning on deducting the expense of moving my household on the tax return for 2010. When I moved I had to bring over a U-Haul and my car. I had a friend fly down to Chicago, he drove the U-haul to boston and I drove my car simultaneously. I paid for his air ticket to chicago. When the move was done, I also paid for his air ticket back to his home city. Can I deduct this return ticket air fare that I paid for my friend since technically it was expense to move my household?

Thanks

Self Select Pin Number

by Raymond Bach
(Henderson,Ky)

Last year I used online e-file tax software to file my 2010 income tax. This year I am doing the same but with a different software. I used a self select pin number.

My question: can I use that same pin number to file 2011 taxes with the different software, or is it exclusive to the previous software.

Or, a better way to ask the same question: is the self select pin number exclusive to the IRS or the software? Thank you in advance.
