How are you today?
Unfortunately, you will have to pay tax on the unemployment benefits the year that you pay them
and then if you have to pay them back you can deduct this as an itemized deduction on the year you pay it back
But, you have to itemize your deductions to get this deduction
I'm getting ready to complete my 2011 taxes and have a refund coming back. Should I worry about the IRS coming after me for 2012 taxes as I made over 120K and plan on oweing them some money. What do you recommend>
I wouldn't worry about the 2012 taxes...you have until October 15 if you filed an extension. All you need to do is file your taxes and make payment arrangements.
I purchased some property in Maine in late Sep 2011 from my uncle and had the land surveyed. It turns out that my neighbor's (who is my cousin and my uncle's daughter) fence line goes about 6 feet onto my property. Since I started a restaurant there and could utilize the entire property for my needs, what legal rights does she have to deny me placing a telephone pole on the property line inside her pasture. She has 6 thoroughbred riding horses and lives on a 100 by 150 foot lot in a commercial zoned area. She relies on my permission to use my driveway to get to her barn twice a year to store hay. What are my rights as the new property owner? She has been living there for over 20 years.
