My friends trust just settled a court case from the

My friends trust just settled a court case from the liquidation of a partnership that never had any accounting, never filed any tax returns, and don't believe anyone will file one after the partnership was liquidated. The sale of the house will be reported to the Partnership Tax ID. I have a court order that says I am not responsible for filing a tax return. The only asset of the partnership was a 3 flat building that was a commune created in 1971. The trust acquired his 1/3 interest when his estate was closed in 2012, and I have an appraisal from that time that I can use as the estates basis. How and where do I report the proceeds from the court forced liquidation of the partnership? I am the Trustee of the trust.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the court order was issued in?Customer: IllinoisJA: What documents or supporting evidence do you have?Customer: A copy of the court order with the final distributions on it. (I also have a closing statement but that is for the non existant partnership.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: There are more legal fees than were on the court order.

2013-2015 my husband and I didn't make any income from a

2013-2015 my husband and I didn't make any income from a restaurant we were working in with the intent to purchase it. We made $0.00 income and our accountant told us we didnt need to file taxes. My mother-in-law and other family members help to pay our bills. We actually lost money those years. We are now trying to get a settlement with the IRS to reduce the amount of taxes we owe on the business. I now need to file a return for those three years with a $0.00 income. Electronic filing is no longer available for those years. Is there any way I can file those with the IRS via the internet? I need to show proof that I have now filed with a date stamped copy showing it has been submitted. I will not have this if I have to mail it in. Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

My husband just passed away on Nov 7. He had filed for a delay in paying his 2015 return. Now that he is gone, I am having trouble understanding how far he came to completing the 2015 returns. Do you know of a way to find out if he ever filed? I don't think he did.

I live in Tennessee. We have a new program for recent high school graduates. Through our Lotto Program there is funding for two free years of tuition for a local community/technical college. I tell you this because my son is almost through his first semester and we were just notified that the Tennessee Department of Education determined he does not qualify because my husband and I filled separately and I claimed head of household? So now I am under a time crunch to change my filing status to married joint on my 2015 taxes. I am unclear of how to do this. Through the internet I found that I need to fill out a 1040X but I don't want to fill out the wrong paper work and cause more problems. What do you think?JA: The accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else important you think the accountant should know?Customer: no
