On January 20th Trump signed an executive order directing

On January 20th Donald Trump signed an executive order directing federal agencies to do what they could to minimize certain parts of the ACA that were considered burdensome. In compliance to this, the IRS decided not to refuse to process returns where the question as to whether the taxpayer had minimum essential health coverage.was not answered. this was a change that was not implemented yet, iin that the iRS had not previously refused to process those returns.. Not today I talked to Intuit Professional Series, and as of March 2nd they will have their programs updated so as to not require an answer to the ACA coverage question. Whether the IRS had required it before, the big tax software companies were requiring it be answered. Now, I believe the ACA penalty has just become de facto unenforceable. If people file their return and do not answer the ACA question, they will not be penalized ,right? And the tax professional will not see error message that he may or may hot get around. Do you agree? Or is there some other way of enforcing ACA Penatlty I am unaware of?

However, she works in our office and he determines where she advertises, etc. #1 should she really be classified as a contracted employee or a regular employee. #2 can we write a contract that relieves us if she is injured while on company property, so that should would not be covered under our work comp or building insurance? Should she have a work comp policy for herself? #3 what is our general liability with an independent contractor doing marketing for us?JA: Not for this question, but they might if you need additional services.

My grandfather died 12 years ago. My mother and her sister

My grandfather died 12 years ago. My mother and her sister were left half of his estate, which included land valued at over one million dollars. Because my mother was deceased,my brother, sister, and I split her share and decided to split our share with a cousin, who is an attorney in Utah, in exchange for his legal expertise at no cost. The cousin tried to sellthe land but said he could find no buyers, so he went about getting a loan to develop the land. He used the credit ratings of all of us to obtain the loan, and now buildings have been built on the property. Every year at tax time, it takes him a long time to get information to us, just to find that there are no earnings on the property. Although the loan has been paid in full by all of us, he still reports that there are no earnings, but when I Googled the property it said that the "corporation" had earned over $120,000 a year over the past few years.When I emailed the cousin, asking for a full accounting of the corporation, he ignored myrequest completely. I have no information about earnings and feel that this is no way to do business....even with family members involved. What do I do at this time to get a fullaccounting of the business?
