Q. if I marry will my wife pick up any responsibility for my IRS debt?

statute of limitation has run on collection rights. You would need to have the timing reviewed
to confirm if the right to collect has expired.

A: Depends. More information is required. As a very generalized response...If the manager is domiciled in CA
and is conducting the business of the LLC then the LLC would be required to register, file returns

Q. I filed my taxes in march and paid the fee online, but I haven't received a confirmation of receipt. Is that normal?
October 15, 2016
A: Your payment would serve as a quasi form of confirmation. Check your bank
account for the withdrawal. It would have occurred within 24 hours unless you
specified a later date.
If you e-filed, you can also obtain an electronic postmark from your software
or tax professional.
You may alternately contact the IRS and request your account transcript for
the relevant tax year. This transcript will evidence the return receipt and summary of
tax return information.
