The above will be handled also by you hopefully but first, my daughter Kathy also received a CP59 for 2009. She had worked as a helper in a pre-school which downsized and she was laid off. I think she got unemployment for two months or so, and then got another job as a nanny/child care in a private house where her taxes
were not deducted. She had to move into a room in a house with others and give up her apt. as she made under $10 per hour with no benefits (and I helped her some with money from time to time). lShe has a 1991 Toyota sedan and furniture that didn't fit into a room is in storage. She has no savings. She can barely live on her income without taxes, has no sick leave or vacation, and only eats meat once a week. She has become a vegetarian on rice and beans mostly. What is happening in this world? She is honest, loves children and even tho she didn't go to college she has taken some night courses at the local
University on child care and also got certification for child care and elderly care in Florida. She is trying to work and not collect unemployment - and just does not understand the tax system. Somebody told her that if she made under $22,000 per year she didn't have to pay taxes.
Will it be acceptable to have a printout from her bank showing all her paycheck deposits for the year. She cannot find her W-2s from the school or other 1099 or whatever from 2009.
What would you charge to fill out the tax forms for 2009 to answer the CP59?
Also once this is finished could she set up a payment plan (the least per month so she can still live). She only has one credit card from Sears with a $3,000 max which is maxed out I think for car problems and needs etc.
Then, could you also help her with her 2010 taxes and then to do the Estimated Taxes you suggested earlier for 2011 . She just changed nanny jobs - the first six months taxes were not deducted - her new employer says they will report income but will decide on deducting taxes???? She just started this new job two weeks ago.
Please advise details and I will work only with you - and I appreciate any help we can get. Thank you. Catherine Nicholas
