If you have filed for bankruptcy and your boyfriend claims you as a dependent on his tax return will this affect your bankruptcy?
Answer . \nThe person filing for the BK will have to present IRS and in most cases state tax documents. This may create a problem for the BK filer and for the person who claimed them as a dependent. IRS regulations for claiming dependents is very strict, the claiming of a non-relative, non-spouse or anyone who lives in the household when there is not a legally established relationship is not considered an eligible dependant. In such a situation as cited it is quite possible the BK will be dismissed and the IRS will initiate an audit of the tax filer.

How does a person go about filing tax returns from 2003 to present?
Generally, federal income tax returns for individuals are due by April 15. If April 15 falls on a weekend, then the deadline is extended to the next business day. Returns that aren't filed on time are called past due returns. Start by gathering together your records and information. Contact your present/previous employers and any other sources of income if you don't have that information. You can get copies of previous years' forms online at www.irs.gov/formspubs by clicking on 'Previous Years' and selecting the years and forms that you need. If you have any questions about what forms to use or if you're still missing income information for your past due returns, contact the IRS at 1-866-681-4271. You should file past due returns as promptly as possible to avoid having more interest and penalties assessed on your tax due, if you owe. If you've received a Notice of Deficiency from the IRS, be sure to send your completed past due returns to the IRS address on your notice. If you haven't received a Notice of Deficiency, get the correct address by calling the IRS at 1-866-681-4271. Past due returns are processed at specific (not all) Internal Revenue Service centers.
Will the IRS require back taxes on the funds in a personal checking account If I have not filed for taxes?
Dear Taxpayer, I'll try to answer your question based on what I understand it to be although the phrasing is somewhat vague.. If you have a bank account that pays interest, (as many banks have) then you have interest income that will need to be reported on your tax return whether you are filing for the current year or for past years.. A bank reports interest income on form 1099-INT, one copy goes to you and the other to the IRS. If you don't have a copy of the 1099-INT for the year in question then you can contact the bank and request one for your records. If the bank is either closed or non-responsive, I'd suggest that you contact the IRS and request a copy of your wage and income transcript for that year. Within 30 days you'll receive a copy of your income information for the year in question.. If your account is not an interest-bearing account then you don't pay "additional" taxes on the monies. If you received these funds from your employment, then it gets reported to the IRS on your W2, if its from Self-Employment, then it gets reported on a 1099 or from self-reporting. Regardless of whether you keep the money on a bank account or under your mattress you pay taxes when you get paid, if you then put the money on the bank, you'd only be taxed on the interest received.. Should you have additional questions make sure to consult a tax professional.. Good luck.. www.irs101.blogspot.com

You can get an exact copy of a previous year's return with all attachments and W-2 forms, directly from the IRS. You need to fill out Form 4506 (Request for Copy of Tax Return). There's a fee (currently 57.00) for this request. It can take up to two months to receive this copy. But most of the time all you need is a computer printout of the information on your return. This is called a 'transcript' and is available for the past three years at no charge. Usually lending agencies (student loans, mortgages, etc.) accept a transcript instead of an exact copy. To request a transcript, you need to fill out Form 4506-T (Request for Transcript of Tax Return).

For example, Single/Married Filing Jointly dependents under age 65 are required to file if any of the following apply. Your unearned income (interest and ordinary dividends, capital gain distributions, etc.) is over $900.00 for 2008 ($950.00 for 2009). Your earned income was over $5,450.00 for 2008 ($5,700.00 for 2009). Your gross income (earned plus unearned income) was more than the larger of $900.00 ($950.00 for 2009) or your earned income up to $5,150.00 ($5,400.00 for 2009) plus $300.00.

Yes . Being claimed as a dependent doesn't prevent the dependent from filing a return. That also doesn't prevent you from still claiming them on your own return. The IRS gives guidelines for determining whether dependents are required to file tax returns. Also, even though dependents might not be required to file, they should file if tax was withheld in order to receive a refund of that tax.
Who is an dependent on tax returns?
That's a rather long and complicated answer. Start by looking at Table 5 on page 11 of Publication 501: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p501.pdf The table gives an outline of the requirements to be a dependent. Then the text below explains the requirements and terms in more detail. Note: A "qualifying relative" does not necessarily have to be related to you if the person lived with you.
If a dependent earned 3100 a year does he need to file a tax return?
For a federal return, it depends on the source of the income (whether it was earned or unearned income), the age of the dependent, and whether any of it came from self-employment. See Table 2 on page 3 of Publication 501 and Table 3 on page 4 of Publication 501: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p501.pdf The rules for state returns will vary by state. But if this person had any taxes withheld from his wages or other payments, he should file a return even if he doesn't have to. That is because withholding almost never equals the actual amount of tax due and he might be owed a refund. If he doesn't file, he won't get a refund.
What is the minimum income requirement in order to file an income tax return individually and not as a dependent?
Everyone is allowed to file an individual tax return, whether they are a dependent or not. Even if you are a dependent, you are required to file your own tax return if you have sufficient income to require the filing of a tax return. There is one exception: If a child under 18 (24 if a fulltime student) has income ONLY from interest and dividends and has income under $9500 (in 2009), the parents may report the dividends and interest on Form 8814 instead of filing a return for the child if they wish. And even if you are not required to file a return, you are allowed to file a return, whether you are a dependent or not. You would want to file a return if you had tax withheld from your salary or from other payments or are eligible for a refundable tax credit. If you choose not to file, you will eventually forfeit your refund. With the one exception noted above, your parents (or whoever is claiming you as a dependent) are not allowed to claim your income or your refund on their tax return.
If you filed for bankruptcy can your daughter claim you as a dependent on her tax return?

But you must have provided over half of their support, and they must have had gross income of less than $3,500.00 in 2008 ($3,650.00 in 2009). For more information, go online at www.irs.gov .

How do you file tax returns for a deceased person?
First, you only file for years in which they were alive. For example, if the person died in January 2009, you would make sure that returns were filed for 2008 and 2009. But no return would be filed for 2010 and after. If there is income after the person dies, that income would be reported on an estate tax return or on the tax return of the person to whom the property was distributed. If the person was married, the surviving spouse can still file a joint return (unless the spouse remarried in the same tax year). The spouse may also choose to file separately. Basically, you file a regular tax return as if the person were still alive. For the year in which they died, you include income and deductions only up to the date of death. At the top of the first page put "JOHN SMITH DECEASED 1/1/2009." Attach Form 1310 to the return to tell the IRS who to send a refund check to. Sign the return with your name and add words that describe your postion, for example "as personal representative" or "as surviving spouse." http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1310.pdf Also, file Form 56 with the IRS as soon as possible. Form 56 informs the IRS about who they should send correspondence to concerning the affairs of the deceased. Remember, if the IRS sends a notice to the deceased's last known address and you don't get it, it is still considered delivered and you may lose rights to appeal an unfavorable ruling. This could result in losing part of your inheritance to unnecessary taxes. If you file Form 56, notices will be sent to you instead of to the deceased. http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f56.pdf You will have to check with your state for their procedures. They are usually spelled out in the instruction book that comes with the state tax forms.
What happens if i just don't file my income tax return?
Interestingly, experience has shown that the great majority of people who seem to think they can outsmart the system and do this actually understand it so poorly they actually simply don't get the refunds and benefits they would otherwise be entitiled to!. Of course, not filing and paying your taxes is a breach of the law, punishable by financial as well as criminal penalties (many people are in jail for not adhereing with the tax laws), interest, and of course, being suspect and likely heavily scrutinized for all prior and future requirements....not a nice way to live. There is no statute of limitations for how long an unfiled return year can be prosecuted.
How do you get a copy of your income tax return?

Can a person claim three dependents on W-4 and only two when filing taxes?
Yes this absolutely allowed and actually proper..and the way the calculation of the W-4 is supposed to be done.. Many people, for many reasons, have financial situations where the withholding for the number of dependents they will have a right to claim results in much more tax being estimated than is needed....they get a large refund. The larger number on the W-4 can prevent this.

A transcript may be an acceptable substitute for an exact copy of a return by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services and lending agencies for student loans and mortgages. A "tax return transcript" will show most line items contained on the return as it was originally filed. If you need a statement of your tax account which shows changes that you or the IRS made after the original return was filed, however, you must request a "tax account transcript". Both transcripts are generally available for the current and past three years and are provided free of charge. The period in which you will receive the transcript varies from within ten to thirty business days from the time the IRS receives your request for the tax return or tax account transcript. You can obtain a free transcript by calling 800-829-1040 and following the prompts in the recorded message or by completing and mailing a request for a transcript to the address listed in the instructions.

Transcripts may also be mailed to a third party, such as a mortgage institution, if specified on the form. You must sign and date the form giving your consent for the disclosure. Businesses, partnerships or individuals who need transcript information from other forms, such as Form W-2 or Form 1099, can use Form 4506-T (PDF), Request for Transcript of Tax Return , to obtain the information. These transcripts may also be mailed to a third party if there is consent for the disclosure.

Filing Requirements Do You Have To File ans Simple Common Sense: The only time you actually do WANT to file is when the IRS says you don't have to! They don't do that because it's good for you. They do it because it is more likely to be good for them. Certainly if you don't have to file, NOTHING BAD, in fact only good things, can happen by doing so. Federal Taxes are the same throughout the country. State tax laws are specific to each area. Whether you have to file a tax return ( or pay tax ) depends, in part, on your filing status, deductions, amount & type of income . There are no such things as "start and stop" ages, not having to pay because of retirement or on social security or working from home or a student. It is all addressed as a matter of "how much TAXABLE income ." (Note: working isn't relevant either, as many people who don't work or are retired, or disabled, or old, or young, or in school, have income from many sources: savings, investments, etc. TAXABLE income is different than what you may otherwise think of as income . In most circumstances, you have to do many of the calculations needed to file a return, just to determine what taxable income may be). Likewise, there are no special or fixed rates for retired, student, doctor, sanitation worker, President, convict...whatever. The amount of taxable income after applicable deductions and adjustments determines the rate applied to your particular situation. The rate, as well as the amount, you pay changes as the amount of income does. You must file a tax return if you had net earnings from self-employment of $400 or more. This is your total self-employment income less the expenses paid in operating your trade or business, multiplied by 92.35%. If you weren't self-employed (paid on a 1099 or ran your own business) then you would always want to file a return to claim the amount withheld and shown on your W-2, which with lower incomes will always be refunded to you. If you are an individual who may be claimed as a dependent on another person's return, you are subject to specific filing requirements. Refer to the instructions in your tax package or refer to Publication 929, Tax Rules for Children and Dependents , or Publication 501, Exemptions, Standard Deduction, and Filing Information , for the filing requirements for dependents. All available at www.IRS.gov You must file a tax return if you received any amount of advance earned income credit payments from your employer during the year, or if you owe any taxes, such as: . social security tax and Medicare tax on tips or group life insurance, . alternative minimum tax, . tax on qualified retirement plans including an Individual Retirement Account, or other tax-favored account, . tax from recapture of an education credit, investment credit, low income housing credit, federal mortgage subsidy, qualified electric vehicle credit, or the native American employment credit. Generally, you must file a tax return if you are a nonresident alien with income from sources in the United States. For more information on nonresident aliens, select Topic 851 at the IRS website.

Also, the Statute of Limitations for when the IRS can no longer ask you questions about your affairs for a year only STARTS to run when a return is filed. Not filing, and they can bug you, (and assess a tax) for forever!

How does someone get away with writing false paychecks to someone just so that person can file a tax return to get money back at the end of the year?
People get away with all sorts of things all the time, because there is only so much money that can be spent on hiring investigators to look into everything that everyone is doing, to make sure that they are not getting away with anything. In the case of income tax fraud, most income tax returns are not audited, because there are not enough auditors, or enough money to hire enough auditors, to audit everybody. Most of the time, society operates on the presumption that people are honest. Many people are not honest, but so far it is just not practical to watch everybody all the time. Perhaps in the future there will be better surveillance technology which will make it practical to do that, and people will no longer get away with things. I can certainly imagine sophisticated accounting programs that would allow computers to automatically audit all income tax returns and to detect the kind of deception which you mention. So far we don't have that.
