The mileage on the Mini Cooper is 53,000.
The Jeep Liberty is a 2004 and has 96,000 miles.
The taxes owed are from 2008. We just received a notice saying we made a mistake on our return and put in the wrong amount on our taxable income. My husband and I had a really difficult time doing our taxes that year because it was when I had received my lump sum settlement from the County of Sacramento for my back pay on my disability retirement. Apparently, we didn't put the correct amount in.
I also wanted to say that the issue with our medical insurance is bad because we live out of the service area but the difference in cost is about $600 a month for the insurance that is accepted where we live. The only way we can afford to pay for that insurance is if we can get rid of this debt. Because we both have such critical need to have medical resources close by, this is one of the reasons I think we should look at bankruptcy.
The other taxes owed are from the current tax year (2009). When our home was being foreclosed on we moved out and rented a place instead of staying in the home. We should have increased our tax withholding, but at that time we had so much else going on that we didn't even think about it.
Thank you for looking at this for me - last night I completely broke down over all this and had to take some of my emergency medication that I keep on hand and go to bed. I fear I may be headed for another hospitalization. It's difficult for me to push my husband too much on all this because he is much older than me. I'm 53, he's 67 yrs old and has very severe cardiac disease, diabetes, depression, severe arthritis in his spine, and has just been diagnosed with a movement disorder called senile gait disorder which causes him to be unsteady on his feet. Our total credit card debt is approx $35,000.
So thank you so much!
