In October 2010, my former employer, Dept. of Veteran Affairs,
In October 2010, my former employer, Dept. of Veteran Affairs, Office of Personnel Management notified me that due to backlog in disability retirement pensions, they overpaid me $52,000. Since then I pay $227.00 towards the overpayment. As a result of their over payment AND overpayment of SSI both left me owing $3900.00 to the IRS .In 2011 my former employer again did not withhold taxes. On the 1099 for taxable amount it always read UNKNOWN as it again does for tax year 2012. Every year since I've become disabled and unable to work I've been delinquent with taxes due to the backlog with the feds. I claim no exemptions through the year, auto deduct 15% taxes from my SSI . I'm paying @ 25% in federal taxes. If I already paid the taxes on the $52,000.00 in tax year 2010 can I deduct the amount I pay back each month (i.e., $227.00 x 24) for tax years 2011 and 2012?If yes, can I do both on my 2012 tax return or will I need an amended return for tax year 2011?

Myself and a co-owner of a house and 2 acres of property in
Myself and a co-owner of a house and 2 acres of property in West Virginia are preparing to sell the property the first part of next year (2011). The property was purchased in June 2007 for $65,000. A $40,000 mortgage remains. We expect to sell the property for $75,000. After paying the realtor we expect to receive $70,000 minus the mortgage, netting around $30,000 which we will split. The question concerns capital gains. Are the capital gains paid on the $30,000 or on the $10,000 profit. In my present situation, my current income is $985 per month on a 70% VA disability pension which is non-taxable. Any money extra that I would earn is deducted from the VA payment. I am on the deed, but not on the loan. Do you think that it would be better to switch over and collect social security (65 yrs. old) at about $865 per month and drop the VA pension. It seems to me that my only tax liability initally would only be what ever amout that I make on the house.
