Trying to understand something about the Green Party USA. What type of business is it. http://www.gp.org/about It says it is a federation of state parties. Contributions are not tax deductible so I assume it is not a non-profit. Therefore is it a for-profit or how where would I go to look up that info. Thank you.

I am completing a return Schedule C client. He only

I am completing a return for a Schedule C client. He only made $1772.33 this year (he is an Independent Contractor). I am inputting his information into my tax system. It will allow me to file his CA state return but it will not allow me to file a Federal return. Does that mean he did not make enough to be able to file a Fed return electronically? This is the error messages I receive that I am not understanding:The net of Schedules C, E, or F is equivalent to the depreciation taken on the form. Is this correct? (W45)On the tax return (Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ), none of the following amounts are significant: total income, adjusted gross income, tax, total credits, total payments. A federal e-file will not be created for this return. (W48)

How do I find out if an inherited annuity is taxable or not?

How do I find out if an inherited annuity is taxable or not? We inherited 26,000 in annuities from my father in law. We went ahead and filed 1040 ES right away and paid federal and state taxes. We are older and don't want any troubles with the IRS.However, my in laws are now telling me that the annuities were in a trust and we were beneficiaries of a trust so no taxes are due.This doesn't seem to make sense. My father in law was earning "interest" over the cost of the annuities. Someone has to pay taxes on the earnings it would seem, and my father in law passed away leaving all the money untouched.It's not much , but we did pay nearly taxes upfront.Any advice? It's not so much money that we'd want to spend thousands to find out we owed the taxes or didn't.Thank you. We simply got a check in the mail as beneficiary of the annuities for the estate of my father in law.
