"Death Tax" refers to an Estate Tax. If your estate is worth $1,500,000 or less the estate is exempt from an estate tax. I assume most indigents don't have an estate that is w…orth that much.
You will have to pay federal taxes on your Social Security benefitsif you file a federal tax return as an individual and your totalincome is more than $25,000.
You do. You need to speak with your tax accountant and find ways to reduce your tax burden. The upside is that the transfer of wealth within the annuity avoids probate, both t…he time and the cost.
I was told on any money you get from a wrongful death suit you do not have to pay taxes on. Because you are being compensated for something you lost and can never get back. …However; you should ask a tax consultant to be for certain, like H&R Block is the best ones to ask and they pay for mistakes that they make so go to them and have them do your taxes for you. Its worth the money you spend for them to file for you. :)
Yes. At present, Missouri taxes Social Security benefits based on total income. This will phase out at the end of the 2010 tax year. There will be no state tax on benefits rec…eived in 2011.
To be clear, before anybody can inherit property from the deceased the following have to be settled in this order: 1) Taxes due must be payed 2) Debts must be settled 3…) Whats left gets to be distributed an accordance with the will to the heirs. Note the deceased's Executor is responsible for doing all this (the executor may also be an heir). Also NOTE that unpaid taxes and debts come out of the ESTATE. If the estate runs out of money to do this, potential heirs do not have to pay the deceased's taxes or debts out of their own money. However, they will not inherit anything in these circumstances.
The child's social security survivors benefits belong to the child and if the child would be required to file a income tax return it could be possible that some of the child's… social security benefits could become taxable on the child's income tax return. If you are receiving social security benefits its is also possible that some of your SSB could become taxable income on your 1040 income tax return.
Because you are required to when you have other gross worldwide income and form 50% to 85% of your SSB can become taxable income on your 1040 federal income tax return at your… marginal tax rate.
Individuals benefit from state services.
Taxes cover maintenance of roads, bridges, etc. So you benefit from driving of safe maintained roads and bridges. Texas also cover schools, you or your kids can go to school …and they get textbooks from school, which taxes also cover. Taxes cover law enforcement (police) so you are safe, because you have police :) and... Public buildings like Libraries are covered by taxes so you can buy books. If you are unemployed the taxes can help pay for you :) that's all I can think of right now
If you are the primary person on Social Security in your family, they pay a $255 benefit. If you are not the above, then no.
All insurance policies have a section within them which defines important terms, and those definitions, for the most part, will control. Therefore, look to see whether the pol…icy defines "natural causes". If there is no express definition in the policy, a court will generally look to the common meaning of the term (or, if the term has been defined in prior cases, it will likely adhere to that precedent). All of that said, if by "natural death" you mean old age, and barring other circumstances that you have not mentioned, the company will likely pay benefits. This of course also assumes that the policy was in force at the time of death.
