Legal Answers
Q. Hi I have about 75K in tax debt is there anyway the IRS would take less for an immediate lump sum without making an OIC?
A: No. You would have to submit an offer. The only other way to pay less without submitting an offer is to request a penalty abatement, however, most taxpayers do not qualify for a full penalty abatement. Most people can usually only get penalties abated for the first year. I recommend at least talking to an experienced tax attorney. Stay away from the places you see advertised on TV and find an attorney through Justia, your local bar association, etc. Most of us offer a free consultation, so you have nothing to lose by doing a quick consultation with someone.
Q. Will the IRS try to collect on a payroll tax debt owed by my husband if I sell the house he and I co-own?
A: If it has been more than 10 years since the taxes were assessed and he did not do anything to toll (stop) the statute of limitations from running, the debt should be gone. You can go to your town hall and see if there are any tax liens that still have time left on them or, if you have power of attorney for your husband, you can contact the IRS to find out if there is an outstanding debt.
Q. does our son who collects social security disability have to file a tax return and pay income taxes on that income
A: Most people whose sole income is social security do not have to pay taxes on the income. The best way to determine if he should have been filing is to prepare mock returns for the years that he received social security and see if he would have had to pay any taxes. There can be some benefits to filing a "zero" return (no taxes withheld or due) and it would not hurt for him to do so. If he chooses to do that just remind him when he is filing the return that you have claimed him as a dependent. You also want to make sure that his income is not exceeding the amount that he can earn and still be considered your dependent. Filing a "zero" return would remind you to check the income limits for a dependent. For example, in 2020 that amount was $4,300 (gross).
