Customer Question
I have a daughter who...
I have a daughter who helps take care of me and my 82 yr old Dad and cooks and cleans and runs our errands. I am permanently disabled and he is not well either. She just started taking care of us and her husband is in jail. I want to know if there is a discount for me to be able to pay her taxes, social security, and all the other things that have to be paid.

Hello,



My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am one of JustAnswer's attorneys. I'll be helping you resolve your matter today.



Please remember that there might be a delay between your follow up questions and my answers because I may be helping other clients or taking a break.



What do you mean a "discount?" If the sum would be less if you paid her taxes? Or if you could write off paying her taxes as "charity?"

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I mean will they take more out of my disability check to pay for her taxes because I don't get very much a month or will it be the same as everone else'sa. Also how does the gov. figure out what to charge and what other kinds of taxes and misc will they take out of my check and what will come out of her's.

Does she work? Do you share a bank account?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
