I'm Clifford W. Nelson. I am 71 years old and live alone. I am presently trying to maintain 3 houses, 3 lots in the city of Carlsbad, New Mexico; and I get up before the sun rises and work until it sets almost everyday. Today I burned about an acre of weeds on a acreage that includes a oil company deep salt water disposal well that was drilled on my property
. While controlling the flames with a shovel; It was very hard and dangerous work. Only once did the fire go into the neighbors cow pasture but I got it out when the wind settled down some. The two empty houses in Carlsbad are in bad need of repairs and one of them has been condemned because I dug a basement (by hand) that went beyond the City building code for depth, it was to be a exercise pool for my Mom who had arthritus very bad in her knees, but She passed on before I got it finished.
The first year of the well,2013, I made about $130,000 from the oil company and had to pay about $25,000 in Fed. and state taxes
. That was more money than I had ever made in my entire life, but I also had to have surgery from an old accidental gunshot wound too remove scar tissue that blocked my intestines. So, I didn't have medicare
B. I have had to move back to New Mexico because of my self designed house being condemned and I wanted to finish it. The round riverbed rocks I layed by myself and are beautiful and very artisticly done as many people have said. A shame that the people in the neighborhood aren't very artisticly oriented and some have gang and drug problems. That's the reason I went to Montana, A guy came up to my backyard fence with a 38 revolver. I got out of site and found out later he thought I knew about him and his girlfriend cooking drugs just across the alley. In my house when I returned I found several drug needles buried just outside the wall of my carpenter workshop the city inspectors made me tear my shop down. Anyway I don't smoke, drink, or or do any drugs or be dishonest. I like myself because I am a really nice and talented person. The IRS
says I have to make prepayments on the disposal well as of late, I was told I was in an "other" catagory on the 2013 returns
and actually got money back when they told me I had overpaid. Now they have written me a letter after I was threatened to be penalized on June 06 because I didnt make any prepayments? Then I got a letter from the IRS saying to wait that they were still trying to work out their problems with my taxes and for me to wait. I havn"t been able to get anyone on the phone to talk to as they say they are very busy with their recordings. I am a man who loves hard work and being creative. I do not deserve to be penalized because They didn"t tell me about it before! Could or would you find out something for me. I took all my tax papers to a Church where an E-Tax service told me how much fed and state taxes I owed and I sent it in and just had less than $500.00 in my account afterwards.
