Recent Withhold Income Tax questions

I received a lock in letter from the IRS saying that my

Good morning! I received a lock in letter from the IRS saying that my employer had to withhold taxes at a single rate although I am am married with 2 dependents. This letter was issued back in 2011 and since then, I have paid all taxes owed and my employers since then were never issued a letter saying I needed to withhold that higher amount. I am now returning to my employer from back in 2011. Would they have have to follow a letter that was sent to them about this matter after I left or would it be enough to tell them that this has been resolved and I have not needed to have extra money withheld for the past four years?JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?Customer: I have $400 left to pay on taxes for 2015 but otherwise am paid up on taxes.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Accountant about your situation and then connect you two.

I was investigated by Service Canada EI reporting errors

I was investigated by Service Canada for certain EI reporting errors that I had made in 2012 and 2013. Based on the letters they sent me I agreed to the errors made. Whilst I am waiting on their decision I have noticed certain EI reporting errors made in 2015 . I have not received any letter from them to this effect. I would like to now disclose this error and amount to Service Canada. Will this be treated as a Voluntary Disclosure and what ate the chances that I will not be penalized or prosecuted for the same.

I just received an IRS withholding compliance letter stating

I just received an IRS withholding compliance letter stating they would change my W-4 to single with 0 exemptions. I have been preparing back tax filings for the last 5 years but have not filed them yet. My concern is that I will owe back taxes, get on a installment plan and have to make that payment and then they will be taking almost 1100/month in Federal taxes out of my pay check. I will not be able to make ends meet. I do work on the side so I have SE income as well. What a mess.

I live in California. My mother babysits my daughter in my

I live in California. My mother babysits my daughter in my apartment. I believe that would make her a household employee. I am planning to pay her $5000 a year.According to publication 926 - Wages paid to parent are exempt from FICA and/or FUTA. Do I still issue a W2 to my mother? I don't believe I have to since there are no state or federal taxes owed. Can you clarify?On my 1040 - I will deduct child & dependent care expenses and show grandma SS# ***** paid to.On my mother's 1040 (grandma) - I will include the wages ($5,000) as HSH wages not reported on a W2. Will be okay even though the amount is more than $1,900?
