I am a foreign student on F-1 visa who have been in the US
I am a foreign student on F-1 visa who have been in the US for 5 years. I didn't work in my first year here. I don't have a green card. If my income in 2015 falls within the specified range of the Earned Income Tax Credits, am I eligible to claim the Earned Income Tax Credits?
I have a question regarding my EIC. I want to ask how it works
I have a question regarding my EIC. I want to ask how it works because my refund is just a little more for 2015 than for 2014. But my third son also became a full time student so I thought I would get more. But maybe because I don't know how it works I am confused.
I wanted to know would it be wise husband and
Hello. I wanted to know would it be wise for my husband and I to file an amended tax return. Here is my situation... My husband does have previous tax debt (has payment agreements/arrangements set up already) that he had previously accrued prior to our relationship and prior to our getting married back in November of 2015. Because I already knew this... I went ahead and filed my own separate tax return, but am not happy about not getting to claim all the exemptions due to being 'Married filing a separate return' . My question is, would it be beneficial for me to file an amended return (add him) so that we can capitalize on the head of house hold & earned income tax credits? Even if we don't get anything more BACK as a tangible refund my thoughts are maybe THIS YEARS taxes for him will be covered??? Please help !!! is this something I need to look into?
We have two children who are full time students (ages 18 and
We have two children who are full time students (ages 18 and 20) and we we claim as dependents on our form 1040. Does each of them still need to file a separate tax return under their own name(s)? And a related question if yes, how can we determine if they should file form 1040 or 1040EZ. And finally, one of them has a small amount of self-employment income as well as salary. Does that define which form he will need to file, regardless of total income? Thank you.

I have had my grand sons years. 2014 they went toView more tax questions
I have had my grand sons for 14 years. 2014 they went to help their mom after surgery they went to school in sac but I got them every weekend, break and holiday which added up to over half the year. I paid for their clothes and to wash them. I even helped with the rent but never thought to save receipts. My daughter is not working and was not at the time they were there. The IRS says I could not claim them and I owe. Does the IRS not have to prove before the tell someone they defrauded the Government and breaking tax laws. No one has ever claimed them but me I take care of them. I need advise. I have been mailing them what I had to show but nothing is good enough. I have till 3/6/16 to answer their last letter
