Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Dear Friend,Hello and welcome. Thank you for using Just Answer.I am sorry to hear about your situation. However, there are some methods that you should try out and see if you can find him.
If you can reach out to any of his family members, ask them for your ex-husband's contact information. This might be quickest way to find your ex-husband. Chances are high that your ex-husband's family will know where he is and will be able to assist you in finding him.Secondly, if you have little idea in which area he is likely to be found, Contact the local municipal court. If your ex-husband still lives in the same area and has had any traffic violations or parking tickets, they would be a matter of public records. This tells you if he still lives in the same general area.Thirdly, Try running a check on the phone bookFourthly, There are sites which help you track people. You can try there as well.https://pipl.com/
The other such sites are ::http://www.whitepages.com/personhttp://www.peoplesearchnow.com/
If all of this fail, hire a private investigator. Private investigators make their living tracking people down. They may be expensive, but they can bring results.
Are you there ? Is there anything more I can help you with ?
I'm here. I was just trying again the links you provided. I have tried all the obvious ways, e.g., white pages, people search, pipl, etc. He's probably employed and in contact with his kids. None of his relatives will provide information to me.
Please, I'm looking for help beyond the really obvious. Do you have any ideas?
Really, how hard can this be? He's alive, in the US, and probably local. the IRS just won't expend the energy, but I need to tell them where he is.
Just a moment please...
Sorry I had to attend a phone. I understand that this can be hard. But not very hard if the money involved is too much.
I understand you are trying to go beyond obvious. In that case hiring private investigator should work out for you. That is the only way I can suggest at this point. He will definitely find him
What would a PI do?
They have their own method of working. Let me try and and throw some light on that as well.
You will give him all the details (no matter how old they are and in what quantity they are) Based on that, they will try and track him down. Even if you give him as little as your ex last known address, or his last employment details, or something like information of his friend and family, this would be enough for him to track him down. They have their good network of people working for them and they work in disguise.
They will fetch you the required information.
So your response is that you cannot help, right? That I must hire someone else, and you have no resources that can help me? Not trying to be hostile; it seems that this is an issue for which you can offer no help other than to suggest I try someone else.
Wait a minute madam.. I see some misunderstanding here...
We at Just Answer can just point you in the right direction. We cannot directly offer help. We are not investigators, not government office, not customer care, etc.We are just group of expert who can offer you best possible advice going by your situation. Such advice can be financial, legal etc. We can point you in a right direction.This site works on "Honor Policy". Once the customer is satisfied with the solution / suggestion / advice, he has to rate us positively and ONLY THEN we receive credit for spending time and assisting you.
Got it. No misunderstanding. You can tell me to go somewhere else because you can't answer the question. That's fair enough--no one knows everything!
No, still some gap remains in what I try to convey and what you understand. It is not that we do not know. I KNOW that only option left with you is to hire an investigator. His fees would be worth it if the tax bill is rally huge.Since we are not investigators ourselves, we can direct you to best possible option.
Hey! I just hoped that you could offer something beyond the obvious, and I was wrong. I know you tried your best, XXXXX XXXXX best is that I should contact someone else; this is beyond your scope. Thank you for your efforts, truly. Since you were engaged in another conversation at this time, my declining the charge should make no difference. Again, I thank you for your attention, and I'm sorry that I looked in the wrong place for help.
We cannot engage ourselves in any other conversation while we interact.Thank you and wish you good luck.
"Just a moment please...
Sorry I had to attend a phone."
That's what you said.
yes, that right. While online, we CANNOT chat with two people.However, it is completely your prerogative to rate positively or not.I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX good luck and hope you deal with your problem successfully.
2002-2012. 1040. I have his SS#, but there is apparently no current address for him.
Short version: it's a bunch of returns filed to catch up. I already have a deal worked out with the IRS for MFS returns. One year, 2006, seems to be the bugaboo. They can find me and don't want to look for him. He's probably still on the books somewhere. I guess what I really want is to find him, since no one else will do so, and give the IRS his address so they can go after him. Dealing with the IRS is not a problem for me: I'm an accountant and they really don't scare me. I just want to help them go after him for his debt instead of me.
OH! And I will certainly give you a good rating if you can tell me something useful!
