Recent Estimated Tax Return questions

I have lived and worked overseas for the past 16 years. I have been offered a job back in the US and am contemplating a move back. Was wondering from a tax perspective whether I should move back on Dec 31 or Jan 1 or mid-year for the best tax advantage. The company I am leaving has offered me a severance bonus (sizable) for my years of service. I have been paying taxes in both US and my current host country (and claiming foreign tax credit). . . thoughts?

He has given power of attorney to his sister to act on his behalf. I will be collecting the rent, and disbursing the funds to the sister.For individuals who own property in California, but reside outside of the state, I am required to withhold 7% of the gross rents. Then on a quarterly basis pay the funds to the CA Franchise Tax Board (Non-Resident Withholding). In addition to the Non-Resident Withholding tax for California, what other tax forms does the owner need to complete. Should he complete Form W-8ECI?

I regularly pay estimated taxes for my wife's business. In addition, I recently sold some long term stock incurring a sizable long term capital gain. Am I required to pay the 15% on the entire gain in the quarter that I sold the stock (to avoid penalties), or can I spread the amount owed among the remainder of the quarterly payments (2)?The question applies both to Federal and to NJ state tax.Thanks.

Team,My estimated tax return is appox 4500 for 2012.Two Questions:I have appox $26,000 in repairs for 2012. As I complete my taxes on turbo tax, when I reach the $4500.00 refund amount I still have appox $15,000 in additional repairs but the additional repairs do not increase my refund amount. Will the additional repairs "$15,000" from 2012 be credited to my 2013 return?Question 2:! June 2012 I signed a document to authorize a property manager to manage my property and had appox $7000.00 worth of work completed. However, my real estate agent did not advertise the property for rent until Aug 2012 and the 95% of the work was completed after July. My question is will I be able to write off the 95% of the repairs as an expense since I authorized the property manager to manage the property.Elvin

I am a 72 year old retiree. By August 311, I will be receiving

I am a 72 year old retiree. By August 311, I will be receiving 150,000 in cash settlement of aa civil law suit I instigated against a former employee. The business no longer exists. I live on SS and annuities. In 2006, my tax advisor had me claim some 200,000 in income that was in fact embezzled, creating a larger tax bite than I actually owed. ( the business was an S Corp) How do I treat this 150,000m for tax purposes? Do I need to file an estimated tax return? What about the 70some thousand to recover from the miscreant? Can my 2005 return be adjusted? My ordinary tax bite is quite low---I have a very large mortgage that helps . I realize I am asking a number of questions. but I need your input. &nbsp ; Rochelle C Weisgurt &nbsp ; NNN-NN-NNNN 1
