I have been in a controlling relationship for 2 years. I have a business that generates an income
of 200k a year. My fiance said he should control it. He had more experience. He has a business too. He handled everything -- and if I questioned it, he said we were done. Anyway, he filed our tax returns
last year by balancing our write offs. He took a 5k tax
bill and I would get a 5k tax return
. He played the system.
When I questioned it he told me that I had no business questioning it because I am not a seasoned person like he is and that I shoudl 'back off". Because we had an extension
-- we are awaiting my tax return. It hasn't come yet and he told me that if I get it and don't hand it to him -- he will go back and ammend his tax return to make sure that he gets a big pay check and i get a big bill.
I just independently emailed and called our accountant to tell him what's going on. He told me my fiance called the other day and asked him to call the IRS
on his own to find out where my return is. My accountant told him I needed a power of attorney signed to do that and that INFURIATED my fiance.
So, here we sit -- he is threatening me with this -- Holding ALL of my money -- and paychecks.
I withheld my last paycheck for 3 days because I was considering leaving and he notated on the bank account "DEPOSIT (MY NAME) WITHHELD FOR 1 WEEK AND JEAPORDIZED BILLS)
How would you deal with this? And is this tax fraud?
