Federal aid issues parents must always, I always get great support, I do not understand?

Deal Score0

I do not know if it’s really a matter of prayer for more opinions. I am 31 years old and worked since I was 16 I joined the army when I was 19, started to earn decent wages, and was afraid of death, what to do with taxes, due to more drama from my mother, ha ha. I could not get back less than 2K from 1999. I made a claim on my W4 to zero for a long time, but when I became a single parent, I changed that 1.Niikaua as I can remember, my mother is a terrible tax season, I remember him pointing out and claiming they have XXX amount of time, I learned of the payment. His reasoning has always been a “house stuff” that I have never understood and do selgitus.Kui my husband and I became owners 5 years ago, I kept his comments on the back of my mind and I ‘ I was surprised to see that wow, no tax problems. As we have been married, bought a house and continued to earn more, we have steadily increased each year support. We made our way exemptions to avoid giving Uncle Sugar, interest-free loans, but it was still several thousand back (too-10K + I think this year we’re certainly not going to let it happen again), and we have less children as my parents. I do not understand. We do not 50K more a year if they do, but I do not understand why he would make no difference because vs. aspect. They have their late 50s. He just told me he is due about $ 2,400 to the IRS of the 2010th Twice my parents have received support over the past 15 years, it is less than $ 300. I tried talking to him what the problem might be, but it just will not talk at all. He insinuates that I am exaggerating the fact that I never have to pay taxes. My parents are hardworking, intelligent people, and I fear they are doing something “bad” – is not morally or legally wrong, but the filing, either through ignorance or just plain wrong. It really bothers me because they are sooo worked and stressed about this and what I see, there is simply no reason for them, I was convinced of his file taxes from 2009 through v├Álgu.Eelmisel electronics, he said “shit” and that it will comply because of its paper forms are submitted electronically to meet their needs. I do not understand. He still talks as if its finances are extremely complicated, but now that I am an adult and handling on my own, I can not imagine what could “complicate” their taxes. They live a simple life, not to invest in its own plot (I guess they are second mortgage on this) and has been in terms of dependent children up to 2-4 this year when the last of us (the twins) to the left slot. My brother and I have been to university, so it is not something they have faced from a tax perspective kas.Kas someone has an idea why a simple, two household of a person with an income of about 60K is such questions? I would really like to help them avoid paying the IRS each year.

    You’ve tried.

    The ONLY approaches I see left:

    Sit M&D down and say, look at this. You owe $ 2400 for 2010. That’s $ 200 a month you forgot to have withheld. Let’s update your W-4 to have $ 200 a month more withheld.

    Alternately, in February or March, have them sit down with their paystubs and fill in the withholding calculator at irs.gov and show them that the IRS is projected that they will owe X at the end of the year. This is especially critical if they are used to claiming dependents and someone is successfully launched.

    It appears, they are living paycheck to paycheck. I’m suspecting that they get an annual installment agreement from the IRS (running 10-18% for penalties and interest) and then “make ends meet” by bumping the allowances up on their W-4.

    Because they suck at handling money. Send them through Financial Peace University.
    Google Dave Ramsey.

    It sounds like they just don’t have enough withheld (if any) and they don’t have any savings, so when it’s time to do taxes even a couple hundred dollars would be a big deal to them. Plus, some people just like to complain about taxes, like it’s a requirement to hate them. I know someone who starts complaining in Dec. and continues until April and last year I helped him file and it took 1/2 hour and it was so easy. He never stops complaining though.

    Your mother is a martyr. You will not change her. She owes because they do not have enough withheld through out the year.

    Oh, I feel your pain! It can be so hard to talk to relatives about money. Even more frustrating when you want to help, but they only want to talk about how poor or overtaxes or somehow oppressed they are but don’t want to actually do anything about it.

    Someday when you are feeling especially calm, you might try saying something along the lines of, “You know Mom, it makes me stressed out every year when I hear that you are having tax problems. You sound stressed out, too. I would like to help so that we can both be happier.”

    Either she can take it or leave it. Hopefully, if she won’t take your help, she will at least stop talking to you about it.

    Good luck!
