I filled out a form 982 due to receiving a 1099C. I also sent spreadsheet showing Insolvency and since it did not affect my original AGI I left the 1040x form blank and just signed it. I got a letter back from IRS saying I have to fill out the 1040x but there is nothing to change. What do I do?JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?Customer: The packet I sent included the signed 1040x, filled out 982, a copy of the 1099c and a spreadsheet to conclude insolvency. The letter from IRS says what items of income, deductions or credits were changed but there weren't any changes.

I have filed a partnership return (Form 1065 for LLC) for 2014. I realized that one property the partners contributed in 2014 is not included as capital contribution on their K-1.Should I add the amount paid for this property as contribution by the partner and adjust their ownership based on the contributions and file the amendment ?I see the capital contribution does not impact anywhere on taxes but the balance sheet. I am new tax preparer and need any and all help you can lend.

I just amended a clients returns, 14 and 15. I would like to

I just amended a clients returns for 2013, 14 and 15. I would like to work out the interest they owe for each year so they can make an accurate payment. I find it confusing, as IRS wiill give a percentage to add to another rate. I do not find a table anywhere. For that matter, I would accept a workable rule of thumb that would get me close to the correct answer, if that was available. I run into variants of this problem routinely in trying to work out penalties. My computer- Intuit Pro Series--calculates pretty much everything else. What is the solution?

Well, before I do, how much will this cost? I did not

Well, before I do, how much will this cost? I did not realize this was an interactive site when I clicked the link.JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to. The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.Customer: Ok. I have an approximate $15,000 unpaid tax obligation from 2010, when I was married to (but separated from) a former spouse. We divorced in 2014. I married my current spouse in 2014. We lived in California through June of 2015 and New Jersey the remainder of 2015. Well over half of our 2015 income came from my wife's NJ job.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?Customer: Yes. I wasn't through, but accidentally hit the button. So, I filed an injured spouse form with our 2015 return. We filed jointly/married. I provided a breakdown of the earnings and expenses between NJ and CA. However, we got a notice from the IRS a couple of weeks ago that said they were keeping the entire refund (over $9,300) and that they were "unable to process" the injured spouse form because we resided in CA. It mentioned nothing about also residing in NJ or the different incomes generated from the two states. So I'm just curious whether I should pursue the matter or not.

I filed a 1040x it was received on 05/03/16 for a 1099 I had misplaced. It was adjusted on 06/24/2016. I sent in what my accountant said, but got a cp22a that I owed more so I paid it. The check was cashed 07/01/2016. I went to the IRS site where is my 1040x and it shows its not complete. How long does it take for that info to post? thanks

Is there a limit on the amount of time after issuance that the IRS will honor a refund check?Would filing an amended return resulting in a differently-sized refund reset the clock?If a refund check is part of a fraudulent tax return, does the crime occur when the return is submitted or not until the refund check is cashed?

I have to file an amended return because I just received a distribution form from my parent's estate trust manager. The problem is, I already had received and deposited the IRS refund check from my original 1040. It looks like that refund was about $900 too large once I amend my return. How do I enter that on the 1040X?JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?Customer: I don't think so.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Accountant about your situation and then connect you two.
