MN Legal Question To whom it may concern, I have had many

MN Legal QuestionTo whom it may concern,I have had many issues with my ex-boyfriend over the course of the past year, and was hoping I could get some guidance on the best way to approach the situation(s).To begin with, he opened a number of credit cards in my name (some he placed himself on the account as joint status, some as an authorized user, and some I was the sole individual on the account.) A couple of these I was aware of and agreed to, some I was told by him that I was just an authorized user (where in reality, it was actually just me on the account). This happened over the course of the past couple of years. He lost his job eight months back, disappeared for a while, and I got stuck with all of the debts on the cards, amounting to well over $10,000. I tried to act on a couple--went as far as calling and submitting fraud claims--but backed down when he said he would pay me back as soon as he was able. I was reluctant to pay for most of them, but ultimately ended up making payments when I saw what it was doing to my credit. It has been months since I discovered the problems with these accounts, and I still have not been paid by him and am tired of waiting. One account for an AmEx card I tried to contact again recently, and the woman in the fraud department said I was no longer able to act on the fraud claim. Should I expect that with all of the accounts; does it imply responsibility for the accounts, that I have been making payments; What are my options?Another issue I have run across is with my 401(k) from a previous employer that I had not yet rolled over to my current account. In May of this year, I had discovered that he had gone into my online account in December 2015, requested to withdraw the balance of the account (approx. $13,000), got the letter with the check in the mail, forged my signature, placed it into a joint account we had for bills. All of this occurred while I was at work. I knew the joint account idea was an awful one, and I had refused to be added for over a year, but was constantly being harped on about it in that same month he did this, so I gave in, thinking "What's the worst that could happen?" Anyhow, Prudential sent me a photocopy of the check to verify the signature was not mine, and I sat on it for a couple of months because I got the same line about how I would be paid back. I finally called back once it became clear I was still not going to be paid, and they sent me a form to fill out and return that stated I did not authorize, receive, sign, or benefit from the proceeds of the check. I'm not at all sure what he did with the the money. Is it going to be a problem that he placed it into an account where I was a joint account holder? Is there any particular way I should be handling this one?Finally, there was also an issue with my tax refund for this past year. We shared a computer and he would frequently go through my emails and logins for websites. TurboTax would send me notifications of when they received my W-2's, and I was waiting on one more to go ahead and file my taxes for 2015. Well it came in while I was at work, he went ahead without my permission and filed my taxes. I came home, got upset, but ultimately thought "Whatever, I'm still getting a refund." Nope. He had set it up to go into that same joint account. We had a huge fallout between the two of us in February, a week and a half before the deposit hit. I talked to TurboTax, they said once it's submitted they cannot do anything. I talked to the IRS about rerouting the funds, they said they could not do anything either. I talked to the bank about blocking the funds, they said there was nothing they could do, and that I should just watch the account like a hawk. It finally came in one day at Four or Five in the morning, and he immediately transferred the funds to his personal account. I had this whole debacle with the bank because the funds showed back up into the joint account, I transferred them to my personal account, but apparently it was not valid because some glitch had been caused in the system. When I saw that the account was negative two times the amount of the refund, I went into the bank to see what the situation was, explained my situation, and the bank manager said that I would receive the funds once they had worked it out. Ultimately, they gave him the funds, thought that there was some sort of wire fraud trying to be committed, and now neither of us can bank there again. What is my best way of handling that entire situation with the taxes?I made the mistake of trying to be lenient on someone who is clearly deranged, and I'm worried I may have waited too long. I wanted to believe he would do the honorable thing and pay me back, but it just did not happen. Any advice would be more than appreciated, because at this point I am out close to $30,000.-S

I live in Michigan and my employer received a wage

I live in Michigan and my employer received a wage garnishment yesterday from the Illinois department of revenue for failure to pay business taxes in 2008 in the amount of $9,000.No Judgement was ever entered against me as Illinois does not require one to collect on tax issues.My question is this: I was going to file a MC-49 Objection to Garnishment with my local circuit court on the grounds that the garnishment was not properly issued or is otherwise invalid for the following reason: 1) The judgement was never domesticated to Michigan and 2) MI law has a statute of limitations of six years to collect on an out of state judgement.Is this a valid option to stop the wage garnishment.

I'm on overseas investor and I have 2 houses under an LLC,

I'm on overseas investor and I have 2 houses under an LLC, fully owned by me, in Cleveland Ohio. These were bought in 2013 and my local resident agent expired (in 2014) after 1 year, which I was not aware of. When I received the email reminder from local agent to file franchise tax, I checked into their portal last week and realised that there was a court summon to the resident agent in February, which was not attended. How to go about this and fix the issue please?

Thank you us this opportunity to ask questions.. My husband and I ar

Hello..... Thank you for giving us this opportunity to ask questions.. My husband and I are newly weds....My husband is a retired Navy veteran. Currently holds a PT job to make financial ends meet. He was divorced in the late 90's when his two boys were small. In his divorce decree and child support agreement he agreed to pAy 1000.00 a month. While active duty. The federal government will only alllot 70% of your monthly pay. He provided health care for them at the time as well. The remaining 30%. Was directly transferred from his account to her bank account on a monthly basis not knowing that if it was not processed by the child support office he would not get credit for it. With time he this created him to be in arrears and after the boys reached 18yrs of age, he thought he was done with child support but then was notified he was still in debt $50,000.00. Since retirement he has paid into arrears from his retirement check but in the divorce decree she gives up that right.

I am in GA.State sent a notice of tax execution letter to me today valid for issue date April 11th 2016.My credit is perfect and I do not want anything on it. They sent a last notice in September. It says on the letter what will happen if you do nothing. Says The Department will record the state tax execution. So does that mean if I pay this today then they have just initiated and not recorded it yet??
