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.

My friend has just received a small but significant

My friend has just received a small but significant inheritance in the form of a personal check. He has a back tax obligation to the IRS and the State of California. If he deposits the check into his bank account the entire amount will be seized immediately. He intends to try to negotiate a settlement with both IRS and California, but he would like to cash his inheritance check without having it seized. Is there any way he could cash the check or convert the check to some sort of asset that would be out of reach of the taxing authorities? Thank you.
