I lived with an aunt in New York and obtained medicaid where

I lived with an aunt in New York and obtained medicaid where I go to a clinic. I then started renting a place in New Jersey and after a year started paying instate tuition at a community college in new jersey, all the while keeping my new york medicaid. I told medicaid this and they said I can keep my new york medicaid if I still receive mail at my aunts and if I plan on returning permanently to new york after school. I don't know if this is correct as a lawyer on this site said I can be charged with medicaid fraud. I don't work, so I don't file taxes. I am constantly in both new york and new jersey and I have a residency with my aunt in new york, and I rent a place in new jersey that I pay with my student loans. I don't know what to do .

Are you familiar with NC Corp State Tax Law ?JA: No. I'm the Accountant's Assistant.Customer: OK - is Pearl familiarJA: The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.Customer: I had 3 businesses that I sold between 2005-2007 time frame. All of them went thru an Audit and without the long story, I was not defended well and owed a massive amount of State Tax money between 2003-2006. Business 1, I paid in full, business 2 and 3 have attempted payment plans over the years. In 2014, the State moved my entire amount owed from a business's account to my personal SS number and wrote off any amount owed that was past the 10 year mark. Now everything is past the 10 year mark and last May, the state garnished my income to help reduce the debt faster. Seems to me that everything is past the 10 year, I should be able to get out of this debt.. I realize I owe but this is hard to pay back with interest, penalties, etc.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?Customer: That is main idea
