Customer Question
I need help in...

I need help in how to get a print out of our last years tax return. It was filed on time, however, the IRS went back over it and we received a smaller refund. We received notice that they made changes to our tax return and that we would receive details of those changes, however, we never received the notice providing us with the changes made by the IRS. I need this in order for my son to apply for FAFSA for school.

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?

I am the one who does our taxes. We do not have an accountant do them for us.

I have a tax question. I work at a school & receive a W2.
I work at a school & receive a W2. Recently, I was asked to work on-on-one with a special needs student. When it came time to be paid, I was given a personal check from this child's family & told I will be paid directly by the family whenever I work with this child. I was told, “no taxes are withheld.” I plan to report all income, but how do I go about this legally? Do I request a 1099 form? Who is at risk? Am I doing everything legally as long as I report my earnings? How do I report these earnings if they don't give me a 1099 to fill out? Should I run, screaming, away from this shady set up?! … read more
