Per justanswer guidelines, each question should be posted individually, with a price for each one. This prevents an expert to choose to answer that particular question, or not. Plus it makes your questions available to any expert that would like to answer it.
I am sorry, but I am not available for all of your questions, at least not tonight.
I answered the one you posted, and I hope you will rate positive, but I am not available for any other questions tonight.
I apologize for the delay........
When I said that Fred needed to file if he had gross income greater than $13250, I also stated that the answer was the last box, income of $14,000 and no income from self employment...........I'm sorry if I confused you......
The link I provided to you (1040 instructions for 2015) stated on page 8, where it states income of AT LEAST $13250. Given the choices, the last answer was then the only answer.
I do apologize that I confused you in any way.
If you would like me to answer the rest of the questions that you attached , I am available today to answer those for you.
Please let me know if you would like me to continue to help you........
Thank you for choosing just answer.
