I have drawn social security since I was 62. I have worked throughout that time but would like to know if I can get increased benefits now that I am fully retirement age (66).

A certain taxpayer received a refund of 10,000.00 for a tax

A certain taxpayer received a refund of 10,000.00 for a tax year beyond the statute of limitation.. As per his calculation, this is erroneous refund. He returned the check. But the IRS sent it again. Then, he returned second time. Then IRS returned second time. He thought that he would not cash the check and kept it at home instead of tearing it. His wife accidentally cashed it. The check belongs to year four years back. Can the IRS demand the check if they come to know their error?

I am a US citizen who lived in Japan for 15 years through

I am a US citizen who lived in Japan for 15 years through August 2014. I moved with the same company back to the United States in August 2014. My retirement plan that I accumulated during my time in Japan was consolidated into an account managed and housed by Fidelity in the UK. I have not been making contributions since that time, neither has my company - the amount simply rises and falls in step with my portfolio. I am nowthinking of taking some of the money out of that retirement account (again, it is overseas in the UK) and bringing it to the US to put towards a down payment on a house. I was wondering how much that money would be taxed in that instance.
