Lev, I asked you a question last night about the estate

Hello Lev,I asked you a question last night about the estate sales and 1099 misc over $5000 and I invoice my fees. Does 1099 misc include sales tax that I pay my local county or does not include sales tax? If not do I include the sales tax in the invoice to the customer? Also, who do I write my check to and 1099 misc? The customer or the estate?to the customer who is the executor?I will tip you $10 for your time as I appreciate you, but I just want to understand the details so I don't get into trouble as this is a new company for me.

I am married and normally file joint. This year, I received

I am married and normally file joint. This year, I received a 1099-C debit forgiveness for an old credit card (my name only). We own a home with a Deed in both our names but the loan is in my name only. I'd like to file separate and attempt to qualify for insolvency based on the fact that I own the entire loan on the home but only 1/2 the equity of the home since I'm married. I'd like to know if this is valid.JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?Customer: Not yet.
