This is a two part question, recently in July and then again

This is a two part question, recently in July and then again this Monday, the California state tax board took everything out of my bank account for unfiled taxes. I didn't file 2011-now, but once I do, I will be owed a refund for every year. I have always got a refund and never had to pay. In 2013, they also garnished my wages for one pay check to take out what they said I would owe for 2011. So as of now, they have taken money for 2011-2014. When I called the California tax board they said when I file, I will then get my refund plus what they took, but the process is anywhere from 2-6 months. Is there any way to speed this up? Also is there any statute of limitations on getting the refund and/or the money they took from the wage garnishment or the 2 bank levies?

I have a question about extension filing status. For 2015,

Hi Pearl, I have a question about extension filing status. For 2015, my now ex-husband and I filed an extension with both of our names on it (jointly). However, we have since then gotten divorced and we are coming up on the due date for the extension. I would like to go ahead and file my own return as "Married Filing Seperate". Can I do this? Is there any special form that I need to do with this? Thank you!JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?Customer: We had a tax liability that we paid with the extension if that makes any difference.

My wife has outstanding student loan debt, for which she has

My wife has outstanding student loan debt, for which she has just recently set up a payment plan. However, the student loan will not be out of default for 9 months (started making payments in June16). I live in Texas and am filing joint. Since Texas is a community property state, I am concerned about having my tax refund garnished to offset the student loan debt. Furthermore, we are receiving an adoption tax credit.1. Can the IRS garnish my tax refund?2. Can the IRS garnish my adoption tax credit?3. What if I just wait to file my taxes until the 9 months to get the loan out of default is passed? Since I don't owe taxes, can I just wait to file?Thanks,Kyle

I have not filed my NY state taxes,and NC state for 2013.

I have not filed my NY state taxes,and NC state for 2013. Each of these states owes me a refund. When is latest I can file and get refund? I have also not filed Federal for 2013 and believe Federal refund will be due. How late can I file and still get return? My son was 21 and lived with me in 2013 but will be filed as a dependent. What is the minimum amount of income for him to have to file a return? (federally, and by state?)

Hi, I had my green card in 2007 from lottery. I was married with non resident person in 8/2009 until 9/2013. My wife never had any US ID, She never lived in US just got 10 years touristic visa to visit me I was living both Turkey and US until 2012 and she doesn't wanna fill the taxes with me so I asked people how to do taxes they've said single because she doesn't have any paper work about US even not living here and she refuse to but her name on the papers too at the end we got divorced in 2013 so I am officially single now. Because I love US so she decided to stay and work in Turkey. so My question is do I need to fix something or is it okay? Because I also applied for N400 and they will probably call me son for interview. Do you think do I need to fix these papers because I sent all my papers works like 5 years to citizenship dept. already.

I am reviewing past years account transcripts. I have a client who owed a net total of 6345 for 2005 on filing date.. In looking over his statement of account added charges are:04/02/07 $1428 payment for filing tax return after due date04/02/07 381, late payment penalty04/02/07 548, interest on late payment03/09/2009 1206, another penatly for late payment10/20/14 3553 interest charged for late payment10-26-15 417 interest charged for late paymentThen in 201504/15/15 $558 dollars is credit on from 1040 and04/151/6 $8993 transfer from 104008/04/16 1390 PaymentLate filing penalty is total $1428 which is 22.5% of $6345. Late paying penatlies total $1587 which is 25% of 6345. These figures make sense.Total interest is 4518.This seems rather high to me, but maybe I am naive.Client still owes $1384.He has debts for other years, but I just wanted to check if this much interest is credible. Does $4518 look reasonable for IRS interest on everythng ?

Hi, I have a single member LLC. I do online sales, as well as in-person sales at a market in Washington, DC via the Square app. I have not actually "paid myself" yet from my business checking account. I know there are several ways to do this as an LLC. But what is the best way to track this, and should I be taxing that income when I "pay myself"?

I did an independent film project and paid the actor with my own funds. Actor is a SAG Union member, which required me to withhold taxes (they don't allow actors to work as 1099 contractors). I found guidelines to withhold taxes but not I'm stuck with how to deposit the withholding to IRS. Form 941 requires an EIN and I don't have a company. Can I use the form for "household employees"? I'm unsure because an actor in a short film doesn't fit in the description of household employee described on IRS website. Also, how do I deposit NY state tax withholding for this actor I employed?
