Customer Question
Due to my spouse...

Due to my spouse losing his job we had to sell our home & move to TX. At the time we had no income so I started drawing my SS at 64. However, I found a job in 2016 at a salary of $60k - SURPRISE! Is there a way for the IRS to "forgive" the taxes owed from the SS income?

Accountant's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

My estimated IRS taxes are $19K because I have no deductions and have the SS $1,600/mo income.

Hello. I'm sorry to hear about losing the job. You won't like my response but the answer is no. To make it worse they will cause you to suffer ongoing (as well as your wife if you pass away). I'll offer you a call - no time limit to explain all and make it focused on you specifically. I'm so sorry.
