Tax Calculation Rules

What are Tax Calculations?

Tax Calculations are used to determine how much sales tax and how much of the purchase amount is for the price of products and to figure the percentage of what should be as far as sales tax goes. Calculating tax calculations help when a person is establishing a tax category, a tax jurisdiction, and the sales tax calculation code. Any time someone is dealing with tax calculations, it can cause questions to be raised. More times than not, the person figuring the tax may not have the answers. Read below where Experts have answered various questions pertaining to tax.

What should the "value of interest" column contain in the IH-6 form?

Additional Questions: Should it include "deductions" allocated to each beneficiary or should it be the total amount each beneficiary is to receive before allowable deductions and exemptions?

When it is time to list the value of interest each person that is up to get deductions; column 3 will be used to state how much of the property interest is given to the beneficiaries. http://www.in.gov/dor/files/ih-6inst.pdf is the link to get the form that is needed to help with the inheritance tax computation. A legal assistant can be obtained in order to help understand the case. Tax planning is very important and if assistance is needed then the person should get one.

If someone had some ISO stock options from the past but did not include in the calculation of amount, how can this be fixed now?

Case Details: The person is aabout to sell the stocks now.

The person would have to file a 1040-X form to alter the income that came from stock options. http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040x.pdf is where the form can be located. A tax advisor will help to change things when it involves past history that involves taxes. The advisor will review details that the person gives and helps with the tax return.

When separated and in the middle of a divorce, is it better for a person to file jointly with spouse or separately?

A person’s filing status is decided by the person’s status of marriage on the last day of the year. If the person is married anytime throughout the year then as far as tax calculations go; the person is married for one year. On the other hand, if the person is not married and is soon divorced then when it comes down to tax calculations; the person will be classified as single and will file separately.

Should a person have to pay any tax if there is large financial gain from a self-employed business income but more than the gained was lost from an LLC K-I?

The person will not have to pay any taxes from what happen with LLC. The person actually can deduct from the losses that occurred. Self-employment taxes will have to be paid but as far as the LLC lost goes it will affect the income that was gained from the self-employed business or anything else that is related to the self-employment taxes

  • I am in final negotiation with a collections agency to pay

    I am in final negotiation with a collections agency to pay a lump sum for the debt I owe. It will be about 70% less than originally owed. They have agreed to not issue me a 1099c so long as pay the amount in a lump sum and they are not in violation of any IRS rules. How must our agreement be structured in order to ensure that they are not required to issue me a 1099c. I basically want this to be an negotiated settlement rather than a forgiven debt.
