I've been after my husband to file his 2019 taxes and he hasn't. Today I received a notice that I owe money for CCB because they haven't received my 2019 tax information.
He has finally agreed to do his taxes today.
Do I still have to pay the money owed in this notice? Or will they recalculate after they receive our tax return?
Do you mean you and your spouse file separate returns? You say you have been "after" him to file "his" tax return. And --what is CCB? We don't necessarily know what all initials stand for here. In another sentence you refer to "our" tax return. Which is it? Are you filing a joint return? Or separate returns?
And...if your spouse has not begun his return--he cannot use online TurboTax. The online software is shut down for new returns. He can only use the downloaded/installed desktop software for a new return now. If you are filing separate returns--which is what it sounds like, you have to adhere to all the rules of filing married filing separately. So if you used your standard deduction, your spouse has to use his standard deduction. If you itemized he must itemize. You each have to fie the same way.
To file a return for a prior tax year
If you need to prepare a return for 2017, 2018, or 2019 you can purchase and download desktop software to do it, then print, sign, and mail the return(s)
You may also want to explore purchasing the software from various retailers such as Amazon, Costco, Best Buy, Walmart, Sam’s, etc.
Remember to prepare your state return as well—if you live in a state that has a state income tax.
When you mail a tax return, you need to attach any documents showing tax withheld, such as your W-2’s or any 1099’s. Use a mailing service that will track it, such as UPS or certified mail so you will know the IRS/state received the return.
Federal and state returns must be in separate envelopes and they are mailed to different addresses. Read the mailing instructions that print with your tax return carefully so you mail them to the right addresses.
Note: The desktop software you need to prepare the prior year return must be installed/downloaded to a full PC or Mac. It cannot be used on a mobile device.
If you are getting a refund, there is not a penalty for filing past the deadline. If you owe taxes, the interest/penalties will be calculated by the IRS based on how much you owe and when they receive your return and payment. The IRS will bill you for this; it will not be calculated by TurboTax.
If you were legally married at the end of 2019 your filing choices are married filing jointly or married filing separately.
Married Filing Jointly is usually better, even if one spouse had little or no income. When you file a joint return, you and your spouse will get the married filing jointly standard deduction of $24,400 (+$1300 for each spouse 65 or older) You are eligible for more credits including education credits, earned income credit, child and dependent care credit, and a larger income limit to receive the child tax credit.
If you choose to file married filing separately, both spouses have to file the same way—either you both itemize or you both use standard deduction. Your tax rate will be higher than on a joint return. Some of the special rules for filing separately include: you cannot get earned income credit, education credits, adoption credits, or deductions for student loan interest. A higher percent of your Social Security benefits may be taxable. Your limit for SALT (state and local taxes and sales tax) will be only $5000 per spouse. In many cases you will not be able to take the child and dependent care credit. The amount you can contribute to a retirement account will be affected. If you live in a community property state, you will be required to provide additional information regarding your spouse’s income. ( Community property states: AZ, CA, ID, LA, NV, NM, TX, WA, WI)
If you are using online TurboTax to prepare your returns, you will need to prepare two separate returns and pay twice.
I googled "CCB" and there were over 150 possibilities......So---no further comments on whether you need to pay it now or not.
