Barb - I just copied and pasted my last Q - let me know if

Hi Barb - I just copied and pasted my last Q - let me know if you need more background or have any questions. (in case you're overloaded with questions - this is a second or new question regarding the trailer we bought in Oregon and moved to Washington)It looks like I may not have to pay this tax until I transfer the title.According to the notice, "We normally receive a copy of the title indicating ownership of the home has transferred" and "Getting the title transferred will be of benefit to you if at some future time you should decide to sell your home, as well as it helps our office to have accurate records."The person I spoke with at the assessor's office told us, "You don't currently own the trailer" - but did not insist we had to transfer the title. We spoke again today and I asked if there was a penalty, and she referred to the title application I was going to fill out. I only learned of this title application when I told her that my wife would not join me today. AFTER I fill out the title application, there "could" be a penalty if I was more than 30 days late from the date of the title application.So my question - again, I will post it as a question if this is in your purview, and of course if you can find out the answer with research, which you should be paid for - is: Can I simply wait until I want to sell without a problem? I get that there may be a small penalty for paying late - but we have zero plans on selling - and 20 years from now when circumstances change, would pay if we need to in order to sell. I'm not looking for legal advice - I'm looking to see if I have a problem if I don't pay now - and what that problem could be. They are not demanding anything - and the wording seems like we could probably simply defer paying this (that part may be a legal opinion - but I'm not asking for your advice on paying - unless it's a definitive, YES - you have to pay now!)Let me know if you can answer - and I'll post for you - or if I should post it as a legal question.Thanks!Jan

My tax preparer put in the incorrect value of my rental

My tax preparer put in the incorrect value of my rental property 5 years ago. She listed the assessed taxable value instead of the fair market value. I have now sold the property and the capital gains is completely out of whack. The original value should've been $292,500 but she put in $185,000. I just sold the house for $315,000. How do I fix the problem so I don't get killed on capital gains?JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?Customer: I took depreciation for the past 5 years on the $185,000 value, not on the real market value of $292,500.

I live in Georgia and have a rental property in Wyoming. I

Hello. I live in Georgia and have a rental property in Wyoming. I have a property manager who deposits the monthly rent. The rent we charge is $1,060/month for the mortgage that was $1,059/month until this past April, when the mortgage went up to $1,084/month. We continued charging the $1,060/month to the tenant as the are improving their credit score in hopes to purchase the rental house from us sometime this year. As I started to work on my taxes I entered in my interest and property taxes, which should reflect the change in mortgage payment from back in April. I entered in how much I received from rent which was about $12,000. However, when I entered my information it said we have a profit of about $8,000 even though we're losing money with the mortgage increase. I have not paid my property manager as we do not have enough money in the account to pay him and make up the money we are losing from the mortgage increase. The repairs just became too much and it ate through our account. We have an agreement that I will repay him what is owed him once the house is sold and closes. Therefore, he is not issuing me any statements, nor am I issuing him a 1099 due to no payments received or paid. I realize this is a somewhat of a confusing situation and would appreciate anyone's help in this.-Rusty
