I am interested in information regarding care givers fees. I was a care giver for my mom in her home for 5 + yrs. She has since passed and her estate is being settled. I was not able to get paid during that time as her funds did not permit it. I will get a one lump sum for the past years. Even though it is deferred payment, what am I liable for in taxes?I forgot to say it's about 200-210k total.Thank you, Nancy

FTB administered a bank levy without notifying me. I

FTB administered a bank levy without notifying me. I cooperated with the underwriter assigned to my case and I told her to hold off on levy and garnishment because the IRS was almost done investigating a fraudulent 1099 issued to me for tax year 2007. When IRS made the final decision in my favor, removing $52000.00 including penalties and fees. FTB is trying to collect $ 18000.00 for the same tax year 2007. The tax owed was from that fraud 1099. Even after I told them that IRS finished their investigation in my favor, FTB still continued to garnish my income. I sent the underwriter the letter from IRS which FTB asked me to procure the following day IRS made their decision. There was ample time to notify my employer to release the garnishment hold on my income. The underwriter said that it was too late plus I need to pay $1100 for tax due from another year. I did not understand what she was referring to but pleaded with her to reasses my tax liability because I'm very sure that I do not owe them back taxes anymore. The underwriter told me that it will take them 90 days to process the reassessment. How fair is that? It only took her 1 day to decide to garnish my income and hurriedly before IRS can finalize the decision.JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?Customer: so far the garnishment started July first pay period and is still ongoing for $ 378 per pay period. These amount has caused me a lot of hardship including late payment to my condo lease and other bills.
