You never know when you might need to rely on your credit score to make an unexpected purchase, so it’s best to be continuously working to improve it. Better interest rates and larger lines of credit are offered to borrowers with fantastic scores, so it’s to your advantage to keep your score as strong as possible. Late payments, having too high of a balance on credit cards, and having too many (or too few!) lines of credit can negatively impact your score. </SPAN><A href="https://www.mint.com/" target="_blank"><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">Mint</SPAN></A><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;"> and </SPAN><A href="https://turbo.intuit.com/" target="_blank"><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">Turbo</SPAN></A><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">, two great apps from Intuit, can help you keep a constant eye on your credit score, so be sure to check them out!</SPAN></LI> <LI style="font-weight: 400;"><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;"><STRONG>Don’t finance</STRONG> something if you can afford to pay cash for it. You’ll end up paying a lot less if you don’t finance it, because you won’t have to pay interest or fees. Once I rolled a large credit card balance into a HELOC. This brought my interest rate way down (yay!), but it reduced my payments, so I ended up spending much (much, much) longer to pay off the debt (and it probably cost me more in the long run).</SPAN></LI> <LI style="font-weight: 400;"><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">If you must finance something in order to purchase it, think hard about whether you’ll be able to afford the payments. <STRONG>Do you really need this item?</STRONG> Can you buy something that is <STRONG>less expensive</STRONG> to keep your payments lower?</SPAN></LI> <LI style="font-weight: 400;"><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">If you can, always keep a “just in case” fund. Ideally you want to <STRONG>have enough money in savings</STRONG> to support yourself for six months, but even 3 months is better than nothing! It’s fine to start small… add a couple dollars to your savings account every week, and you’ll start seeing your account grow.”</SPAN></LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>~</STRONG><STRONG>Katie, Community Manager</STRONG></P> <P><FONT size="4"><STRONG>&nbsp;</STRONG></FONT></P> <P class="lia-align-center"><FONT size="4"><STRONG><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">++++++</SPAN></STRONG></FONT></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-left" image-alt="Raph Pic.png" style="width: 225px;"><img src="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/image/serverpage/image-id/12130iBFFB720C199EF80B/image-dimensions/225x223?v=1.0" width="225" height="223" role="button" title="Raph Pic.png" alt="Raph Pic.png" /></span>“Making a big financial purchase, such as a home or vehicle, can be nerve-wracking, especially if you are oblivious to things such as your credit score or debt-to-income ratio. In my younger years, I always thought the most important aspect was having a great job with great pay, not taking into consideration that forgetting to pay my monthly bills (credit cards, utilities, etc.) on time could have an adverse effect on my ability to make a big purchase. I figured that as long as I made the payment and was current, I was in a good place. This was absolutely wrong, and I found this out the hard way when I attempted to purchase my first vehicle without the help of a cosigner. I was approved for the loan but with an astronomical interest rate that most would scoff at, but unfortunately, I had no other options. This was an early wake-up call for me, and I began taking the necessary steps to make improvements in the area of my financial knowledge.”</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>~Raph, Community Engagement Manager</STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P class="lia-align-center"><STRONG><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">++++++</SPAN></STRONG></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-right" image-alt="unnamed.png" style="width: 169px;"><img src="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/image/serverpage/image-id/12131iD7CFB6DC7A397204/image-dimensions/169x256?v=1.0" width="169" height="256" role="button" title="unnamed.png" alt="unnamed.png" /></span>“I write this as a renter, college graduate with debt and a car loan.

When we found out he was terminally Ill we consulted an attorney and drew up papers giving me survivorship rights to the deed. I have continued to pay the mortgage payment that is in his name for the last almost 6 years. We were in fear that if I were to notify the mortgage company of his passing and try to switch the mortgage into my name that this would count as a sale and cause the lien to come due. I am also in fear to bring my intentions to the irs that after discovering the details of the situation that they can force the sale of my house. But I would like to finally have the mortgage in my name. I did not file joint with him. In fact we were not even together yet.

I’m 19. For my 2019 taxes, I was claimed as a dependent by my parents and I was a college student. So I didn’t receive a check for that reason. But, I was pregnant, and had my baby in August of this year. So, for my 2020 return I will be claiming my child and filing as an independent. I’ll also be filing as single. My question here is, when I file my 2020 taxes and I put that I have a dependent and that I’m an independent, will I automatically qualify to receive both or one of the $500 for my child or the $1200 since I’m filing as an independent for this year? Will I receive this on top of my regular tax return/will this effect how much of my regular tax return I get back?</P> Sun, 20 Sep 2020 22:29:46 GMT https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/other-financial-discussions/discussion/stimulus-check-question/01/1722672#M7290 Khouser 2020-09-20T22:29:46Z Can I vote in the state of our second home even though my kids attend public school in our primary residence? https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/other-financial-discussions/discussion/can-i-vote-in-the-state-of-our-second-home-even-though-my-kids-attend-public-school-in-our-primary/01/1722211#M7282 <P>We have two homes and due COVID we have spent the majority of 2020 in our second home which is in a neighboring state. &nbsp;We work virtually and kids go to public school virtually. &nbsp;Can I vote in the state of my second home even though my kids attend public school for our other residency. &nbsp;Both houses are paid in full and in high tax town so pay our fair share. &nbsp;Just want a say in the government of our second home as have never had one and this year we spent almost the entire time here.</P> Sat, 19 Sep 2020 13:10:10 GMT https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/other-financial-discussions/discussion/can-i-vote-in-the-state-of-our-second-home-even-though-my-kids-attend-public-school-in-our-primary/01/1722211#M7282 Bt0212 2020-09-19T13:10:10Z Community Chatter: Share your workspace! https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/other-financial-discussions/discussion/community-chatter-share-your-workspace/01/1720916#M7278 <P><SPAN><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">In our first Community Chatter installment, </SPAN><A href="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/other-financial-discussions/discussion/community-chatter-what-are-your-work-from-home-hacks/00/1715487" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">we shared some of our work from home hacks</SPAN></A><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">, and this week we are conducting tours of our workspaces!</SPAN> </SPAN></P> <P><SPAN><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">&nbsp;</SPAN></SPAN></P> <P><SPAN><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Community Chatter.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/image/serverpage/image-id/12254iAC879824DBFF5FD0/image-size/medium?v=1.0&amp;px=400" role="button" title="Community Chatter.png" alt="Community Chatter.png" /></span></SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">With so much to juggle, it's more important than ever to have a dedicated work space that is relatively free from distractions, so that you can focus and be productive.

Adding virtual school into the mix introduced new challenges though, and it has been an adjustment for my family to juggle the needs of two work-from-home adults with two kids in online middle school.</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">My children are tech savvy, so they have been very independent thus far. We've found that it is most helpful for them to keep a regular schedule and have a dedicated place to attend class. Their spaces are fully stocked with all of the supplies they need, and our smart home devices remind them when each class is starting, so that they can be self-sufficient. <span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-right" image-alt="93888712_10157999357126257_1528507787527585792_o.jpg" style="width: 266px;"><img src="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/image/serverpage/image-id/12129i22D7B0DA64E888B0/image-dimensions/266x149?v=1.0" width="266" height="149" role="button" title="93888712_10157999357126257_1528507787527585792_o.jpg" alt="93888712_10157999357126257_1528507787527585792_o.jpg" /></span>Tip: Don't forget to charge school devices every night, so they are ready in the morning! Since my kids are older, they understand that mom and dad are unavailable while working, but this has enabled some really fun communication exchanges! My son likes to write his question on a paper airplane and fly it to my desk. <span class="lia-unicode-emoji" title=":rolling_on_the_floor_laughing:">🤣</span></SPAN></P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN style="font-family: inherit;">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">When it comes to work, it is also important to have a dedicated workspace, and comfort is key. My chair is fabulous! I also have a scented candle on my desk, which makes me happy. Work-life balance is especially difficult while working remotely, and it's easy to feel isolated. Taking breaks a couple times a day to decompress is crucial (getting outside for quick walks around the neighborhood helps). I also recommend disconnecting at the end of the work day, and making time to be social with friends outside of work, whether through social distancing, video chats, or phone calls.</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><FONT size="4"><STRONG><A href="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/52961" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-right" image-alt="Raph Pic.png" style="width: 207px;"><img src="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/image/serverpage/image-id/12130iBFFB720C199EF80B/image-dimensions/207x205?v=1.0" width="207" height="205" role="button" title="Raph Pic.png" alt="Raph Pic.png" /></span>Raphael Matthews</A>, Community Engagement Manager</STRONG></FONT></P> <P><FONT size="4"><STRONG>&nbsp;</STRONG></FONT></P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">Trying to juggle working from home with 2 girls, ages 15 &amp; 11, going through the online virtual learning experience, along with my son, age 4, has been quite the experience, to say the least. With such a wide variety of activities and needs, the first month was complete chaos! It has taken an extreme amount of patience coupled with a lot of trial and error to get to a point in which we are all working together like a well oiled machine.&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">One key thing that helped was getting everyone an individual whiteboard dry erase calendar that we placed in their rooms. Not only did this make it easier to map out the weeks events surrounding school work, zoom meetings, extra-curricular activities, etc., but this also makes the daily expectations visible to our kids. This was an absolute life saver!</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">Another tip that has worked well during this work from home period is ensuring that we have meal options that are easily made with little to no adult supervision. I don't know how many times my kids have asked me to make them lunch or a snack at the most inopportune time possible! This not only saves me time, but it also gives my kids a sense of accomplishment because they are creating their meal themselves!</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN><FONT size="4"><STRONG><A href="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/_82" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-left" image-alt="unnamed.png" style="width: 168px;"><img src="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/image/serverpage/image-id/12131iD7CFB6DC7A397204/image-dimensions/168x254?v=1.0" width="168" height="254" role="button" title="unnamed.png" alt="unnamed.png" /></span>Gabi Urias</A>, Community Engagement Lead</STRONG></FONT></SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">I am naturally a busy body, so being at home this summer was challenging at first, but now I love my home better than ever! The reason is for my “office space”. After four different arrangements and putting my crafting supplies on display (which once was a shelf for pots and pans), I feel complete and ready to be creative.</SPAN></SPAN></P> <P><SPAN><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">&nbsp;</SPAN></SPAN></P> <P><SPAN><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">&nbsp;If you’re feeling stuck, try putting decorations in a new spot, or change out your shelves for a new feel.

I'm asking about 1. my eligibility for a stimulus check 2. if eligible, when I should expect it. My situation is that I was a dependent in 2018, but not 2019. My parents (in April/May) had not yet filed their taxes, and the IRS used their 2018 return for the EIP. Therefore, they got a dependent payment since I was listed as their dependent. I filed my own taxes (as independent) at the beginning of this month (on 7/4 because I'm super patriotic ofc :P). I have not yet received any EIP payment, and when I go to "get my payment" it says that either I'm not eligible or they don't have enough info. Any advice on this would be super helpful, thanks!</P> Tue, 28 Jul 2020 01:27:03 GMT https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/other-financial-discussions/discussion/eip-payment-dependent-2018-not-2019/01/1700125#M6993 eek517 2020-07-28T01:27:03Z If we filled out the Stimulus Registration for non-tax filers form for the first stimulus check will we have to fill it out again for the second stimulus check? https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/other-financial-discussions/discussion/if-we-filled-out-the-stimulus-registration-for-non-tax-filers-form-for-the-first-stimulus-check-will/01/1697907#M6961 <P>Its getting increasing likely that a second stimulus check using the same requirements as the first one will be voted upon and sent out in August.

I believe it's due to a combination of the following:</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>2019 Return: Due to a W2 error, I had to make an amendment a few months back. I am aware that with the IRS extremely backed up and with amendments returns being paper only, I'm most likely not going to have a processed return until (hopefully) the end of August. Leaving my return unable for the IRS to reference for the previous stimulus qualification.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>2018 Return: In 2018 I mistakingly noted on my turbo tax return that "I could be claimed" as a dependent. Although I was mistaken and my parents did not end up claiming me or attempt to (after speaking with their accountant, as I was 24 and not enrolled in any college that year as a FT student).</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Now I'm assuming that due to this I was marked as inelgiable for a stimulus.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Any thoughts if the IRS will send a delayed stimulus once my amended return is processed? Or if I simply missed the time frame and will fall through the cracks here.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Or perhaps whether I'd be able to call the IRS and be considered eligible for the missedstimulus? Given my 2019 is pending and in 2018 I was not actually claimed as a dependent by anyone nor was a even able to be.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Any insight would be appreciated, from the last time I checked calling the IRS only resulting in automated systems. Not sure if that changed recently.</P> Wed, 01 Jul 2020 05:06:41 GMT https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/other-financial-discussions/discussion/stimulus-amended-return-delay/01/1652628#M6839 Rextyler 2020-07-01T05:06:41Z Here's what to do if your stimulus check was put on a TurboCard that you no longer have https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/other-financial-discussions/discussion/here-s-what-to-do-if-your-stimulus-check-was-put-on-a-turbocard-that-you-no-longer-have/01/1652500#M6837 <P>Both these people and Green Dot Bank will not help you in this situation.&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><SPAN>Contact the IRS appointment center hotline and tell them that your stimulus check was sent to the wrong bank account. The best way to do this is to call irsphonenumber844 irsphonenumber545 irsphonenumber5640 (ignore the text in the phone number. do not try and dial text. i just did that so that the website didn't block out the number). Say you would like to make an appointment with them by pressing 1. This WILL connect you to a real person. If you are in a state where IRS offices are NOT closed due to the COVID 19 pandemic, then you can set up an in-person appointment. Otherwise, they will connect you to another REAL PERSON who can help with the issue, however, you will to to wait on hold again.</SPAN></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><SPAN>I know this situation is heartbreaking and complicated for many people, and it can seem like you have no allies, but I went through this as well, and while the solutions provided were often not thorough enough, this is hopefully a good enough manual to get you through this particular situation.

<P>This Fall 2020, I converted a portion of my Traditional IRA to a Roth IRA.&nbsp; I did not withhold any taxes when I converted the money to a Roth.&nbsp; I know I need to pay taxes on it.&nbsp; Can I use the 1040ES to make an estimated tax payment to the IRS for the income from the IRA conversion?&nbsp; I work a regular job that has normal federal withholding, I am not self-employed, and this Roth conversion from my Traditional IRA was just a one-time deal.</P>

<P>My stimulus check was taken because I owe back child support. When I claim my taxes I have 2 kids on there. 1 is from the previous relationship and the other child lives with me from my current relationship. Is there a way to get the $500 for the child that lives with me?</P>

<P>Hello Everyone:</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I am an international student with F1 status. I have filed my 2018 tax return as a non-resident; however, I filed the 2019 tax return as a resident because I have passed the significant presence test.</P><P>The tax refund got approved, and I received the refund on October 7th this year.</P><P>I am wondering if I am eligible for the stimulus payment now (yes, my income is below the threshold). If so, do I need to do anything? Any idea how long it might take for me to get the payment?</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Thank you!</P>

<P><SPAN>Hello, I am a US citizen living and working in India with my wife plus two kids. For 2020 I could work only for the month of Jan and earned 1700$ + may be 1200$ more due to freelance work. I am the only working member and we file our return as a married filing joint. I am looking to have earned income under 3000$ for 2020.</SPAN></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><SPAN>So keeping in mind an expat like me or a working person in USA, could anyone suggest what opportunities such as IRAs, rental properties or anything else I could leverage when I have less income ONLY this year.</SPAN></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><SPAN>Thank You.</SPAN></P>

<P>I am looking for a CPA that has expertise in both UK and U.S. tax situations.<BR /><BR />I have tried using a TTL professional however in my experience they can only really provide advice on U.S. tax situations. I would like to go a little deeper and discuss:<BR /><BR />- requirements for British citizen's filing in the U.S. if long-term resident and greencard holder<BR />- foreign investment properties</P><P>- U.S. investment properties<BR /><BR />For reference I am California-based and if possible would either like to video conference with such a professional or meet face-to-face.&nbsp;<BR /><BR />Many thanks for any guidance and recommendations.&nbsp;</P>

401K rollover with both Roth and traditional contributions rolled into traditional IRA

<description>
<P>Son was closed out of a 401K held at Vanguard and received a check consisting of mixed Roth and traditional monies (less taxes). Check was received in early September. He rolled it into a newly created traditional IRA at Schwab so it contains only these monies. The total is about $500 and is split roughly evenly. Neither Vanguard nor Schwab has much interest in helping him fix this other than to point him to Form 8606 which he would prefer not to haunt him for the rest of his working life.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Can these funds be split out correctly and easily? If not, considering the amount involved, can he simply take it all as a distribution, pay a penalty and start over from scratch? He does have a Roth separate from the messed up IRA and no other traditional IRA currently.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Thanks for any assistance.</P>

You never know when you might need to rely on your credit score to make an unexpected purchase, so it’s best to be continuously working to improve it. Better interest rates and larger lines of credit are offered to borrowers with fantastic scores, so it’s to your advantage to keep your score as strong as possible. Late payments, having too high of a balance on credit cards, and having too many (or too few!) lines of credit can negatively impact your score. </SPAN><A href="https://www.mint.com/" target="_blank"><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">Mint</SPAN></A><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;"> and </SPAN><A href="https://turbo.intuit.com/" target="_blank"><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">Turbo</SPAN></A><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">, two great apps from Intuit, can help you keep a constant eye on your credit score, so be sure to check them out!</SPAN></LI> <LI style="font-weight: 400;"><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;"><STRONG>Don’t finance</STRONG> something if you can afford to pay cash for it. You’ll end up paying a lot less if you don’t finance it, because you won’t have to pay interest or fees. Once I rolled a large credit card balance into a HELOC. This brought my interest rate way down (yay!), but it reduced my payments, so I ended up spending much (much, much) longer to pay off the debt (and it probably cost me more in the long run).</SPAN></LI> <LI style="font-weight: 400;"><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">If you must finance something in order to purchase it, think hard about whether you’ll be able to afford the payments. <STRONG>Do you really need this item?</STRONG> Can you buy something that is <STRONG>less expensive</STRONG> to keep your payments lower?</SPAN></LI> <LI style="font-weight: 400;"><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">If you can, always keep a “just in case” fund. Ideally you want to <STRONG>have enough money in savings</STRONG> to support yourself for six months, but even 3 months is better than nothing! It’s fine to start small… add a couple dollars to your savings account every week, and you’ll start seeing your account grow.”</SPAN></LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>~</STRONG><STRONG>Katie, Community Manager</STRONG></P> <P><FONT size="4"><STRONG>&nbsp;</STRONG></FONT></P> <P class="lia-align-center"><FONT size="4"><STRONG><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">++++++</SPAN></STRONG></FONT></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-left" image-alt="Raph Pic.png" style="width: 225px;"><img src="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/image/serverpage/image-id/12130iBFFB720C199EF80B/image-dimensions/225x223?v=1.0" width="225" height="223" role="button" title="Raph Pic.png" alt="Raph Pic.png" /></span>“Making a big financial purchase, such as a home or vehicle, can be nerve-wracking, especially if you are oblivious to things such as your credit score or debt-to-income ratio. In my younger years, I always thought the most important aspect was having a great job with great pay, not taking into consideration that forgetting to pay my monthly bills (credit cards, utilities, etc.) on time could have an adverse effect on my ability to make a big purchase. I figured that as long as I made the payment and was current, I was in a good place. This was absolutely wrong, and I found this out the hard way when I attempted to purchase my first vehicle without the help of a cosigner. I was approved for the loan but with an astronomical interest rate that most would scoff at, but unfortunately, I had no other options. This was an early wake-up call for me, and I began taking the necessary steps to make improvements in the area of my financial knowledge.”</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>~Raph, Community Engagement Manager</STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P class="lia-align-center"><STRONG><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">++++++</SPAN></STRONG></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-right" image-alt="unnamed.png" style="width: 169px;"><img src="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/image/serverpage/image-id/12131iD7CFB6DC7A397204/image-dimensions/169x256?v=1.0" width="169" height="256" role="button" title="unnamed.png" alt="unnamed.png" /></span>“I write this as a renter, college graduate with debt and a car loan.

<P>Hello, I have $5000 taken out of my paycheck pretax every year for dependent child care expenses. &nbsp;This school year because my children are distance learning I’ve had to hire a babysitter. &nbsp;I pay approximately $800/month. &nbsp;I tried to submit for reimbursement from my FSA but they are asking the babysitter to sign a form verifying her services. &nbsp;She’s 19 and doesn’t want to sign. &nbsp;What am I supposed to do? &nbsp;How can I get reimbursed?</P>

<P>We just filed our 2019 taxes (as we just received our baby's SSN in order to do so). We filed an extension so we were within the timeframe.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>My wife and I received the Stimulus funds. Now that the IRS has our baby's information on file from 2019, when will receive their $500 amount? Do we need to take any steps or will this be automatic?</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Thank you in advance!</P>

<description>
<P>I'm doing a withdrawal as a first time homebuyer and I am under the impression that I will not be charged penalties and fees since it's being used towards a home. However my account is suggesting a 10% tax withholding. If I choose to do this and I'm not going to get taxed, do I get it back in my end of year refund?</P>

<description>
<P>Hi I have a situation where my husband that&nbsp; has passed away died owing back taxes and they placed a lien on his house in 2010. When we found out he was terminally Ill we consulted an attorney and drew up papers giving me survivorship rights to the deed. I have continued to pay the mortgage payment that is in his name for the last almost 6 years. We were in fear that if I were to notify the mortgage company of his passing and try to switch the mortgage into my name that this would count as a sale and cause the lien to come due. I am also in fear to bring my intentions to the irs that after discovering the details of the situation that they can force the sale of my house. But I would like to finally have the mortgage in my name. I did not file joint with him. In fact we were not even together yet. What should I do?</P>

<P>Hi, I have an installment agreement with the IRS. They always send me a payment voucher (bill) each month. These stopped coming when they partially shut down for COVID and suspended installment agreement payments. But that suspension ended July 15. It's October now and I still have not received a monthly bill. Has anyone else experienced this? I did resume paying online after July 15.</P>

<P>I would like to deposit a single sum retirement benefit into a DBA <EM>(Doing Business As)</EM> bank account. Is there any tax difference from depositing this check into my personal account? It will be on the Schedule C and then all personal &amp; DBA income will be taxed on the 1040 as ordinary income. Am I missing anything? (I was born after 1936 and the amount is less then $10K.)</P>

<title>Stimulus check question</title>
<link>
https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/other-financial-discussions/discussion/stimulus-check-question/01/1722672#M7290
</link>
<description>
<P>Hi so I’m looking for some insight on the stimulus check. I’m 19. For my 2019 taxes, I was claimed as a dependent by my parents and I was a college student. So I didn’t receive a check for that reason. But, I was pregnant, and had my baby in August of this year. So, for my 2020 return I will be claiming my child and filing as an independent. I’ll also be filing as single. My question here is, when I file my 2020 taxes and I put that I have a dependent and that I’m an independent, will I automatically qualify to receive both or one of the $500 for my child or the $1200 since I’m filing as an independent for this year? Will I receive this on top of my regular tax return/will this effect how much of my regular tax return I get back?</P>

<P>We have two homes and due COVID we have spent the majority of 2020 in our second home which is in a neighboring state. &nbsp;We work virtually and kids go to public school virtually. &nbsp;Can I vote in the state of my second home even though my kids attend public school for our other residency. &nbsp;Both houses are paid in full and in high tax town so pay our fair share. &nbsp;Just want a say in the government of our second home as have never had one and this year we spent almost the entire time here.</P>

<P>I have a client whose 2018 taxes were filed as married filing jointly. The spouse's taxes and info was not used in that year. The spouse's individual taxes are too complicated&nbsp; to simply file an amendment now. What should I advise the client?</P>

<P>I recently changed jobs in August 2020.&nbsp; I previously had an HDHP health insurance plan with HSA, and I want to know if I can switch health insurance to a non-HDHP and contribute to a standard FSA for the remainder of the year.&nbsp; I'm looking at IRS Pub 969 and having trouble finding any information on this scenario, particularly whether there are potential tax penalties.&nbsp; Thank you.</P>

<P><SPAN>Everyone has seen a lot of change this year, and one of the most common changes is the way our work life has shifted in response to the global pandemic.&nbsp; &nbsp;Many companies embraced the work from home model as a way of protecting their workers, and similarly, a lot of small businesses had to shift their models to allow them to continue their businesses in a socially responsible and safe manner.&nbsp; &nbsp; But whether working from home is new to you or you are a seasoned pro, it can present unique challenges depending on a multitude of factors.&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="CG-Community-Chatter.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/image/serverpage/image-id/12127iC2D130112FC0059F/image-size/medium?v=1.0&amp;px=400" role="button" title="CG-Community-Chatter.png" alt="CG-Community-Chatter.png" /></span></SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>We are sharing our tips for success below, as well as in our &nbsp;<A href="https://quickbooks.intuit.com/learn-support/en-us/talk-about-your-business/community-chatter-we-share-our-work-from-home-hacks/00/654774" target="_blank" rel="noopener nofollow noopener noreferrer">QuickBooks Community</A>&nbsp;and <A href="https://proconnect.intuit.com/community/coronavirus/discussion/community-chatter-we-share-our-work-from-home-hacks/00/99088" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Intuit Accountants Community.</A>&nbsp;Join the conversation! What tips do YOU have for working at home?</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P class="lia-align-center"><SPAN>++++++</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><FONT size="4"><STRONG><A href="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/_46" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-left" image-alt="557928_10151640288146257_287607927_n.jpg" style="width: 184px;"><img src="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/image/serverpage/image-id/12128i54925564DB704C2C/image-dimensions/184x276?v=1.0" width="184" height="276" role="button" title="557928_10151640288146257_287607927_n.jpg" alt="557928_10151640288146257_287607927_n.jpg" /></span>Katie Harris</A>, Community Manager</STRONG></FONT></P> <P><FONT size="4"><STRONG>&nbsp;</STRONG></FONT></P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">I have had remote work arrangements several times over the years, so I guess you can say that I was a WFH "pro" already. Adding virtual school into the mix introduced new challenges though, and it has been an adjustment for my family to juggle the needs of two work-from-home adults with two kids in online middle school.</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">My children are tech savvy, so they have been very independent thus far. We've found that it is most helpful for them to keep a regular schedule and have a dedicated place to attend class. Their spaces are fully stocked with all of the supplies they need, and our smart home devices remind them when each class is starting, so that they can be self-sufficient. <span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-right" image-alt="93888712_10157999357126257_1528507787527585792_o.jpg" style="width: 266px;"><img src="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/image/serverpage/image-id/12129i22D7B0DA64E888B0/image-dimensions/266x149?v=1.0" width="266" height="149" role="button" title="93888712_10157999357126257_1528507787527585792_o.jpg" alt="93888712_10157999357126257_1528507787527585792_o.jpg" /></span>Tip: Don't forget to charge school devices every night, so they are ready in the morning! Since my kids are older, they understand that mom and dad are unavailable while working, but this has enabled some really fun communication exchanges! My son likes to write his question on a paper airplane and fly it to my desk. <span class="lia-unicode-emoji" title=":rolling_on_the_floor_laughing:">🤣</span></SPAN></P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN style="font-family: inherit;">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">When it comes to work, it is also important to have a dedicated workspace, and comfort is key. My chair is fabulous! I also have a scented candle on my desk, which makes me happy. Work-life balance is especially difficult while working remotely, and it's easy to feel isolated. Taking breaks a couple times a day to decompress is crucial (getting outside for quick walks around the neighborhood helps). I also recommend disconnecting at the end of the work day, and making time to be social with friends outside of work, whether through social distancing, video chats, or phone calls.</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><FONT size="4"><STRONG><A href="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/52961" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-right" image-alt="Raph Pic.png" style="width: 207px;"><img src="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/image/serverpage/image-id/12130iBFFB720C199EF80B/image-dimensions/207x205?v=1.0" width="207" height="205" role="button" title="Raph Pic.png" alt="Raph Pic.png" /></span>Raphael Matthews</A>, Community Engagement Manager</STRONG></FONT></P> <P><FONT size="4"><STRONG>&nbsp;</STRONG></FONT></P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">Trying to juggle working from home with 2 girls, ages 15 &amp; 11, going through the online virtual learning experience, along with my son, age 4, has been quite the experience, to say the least. With such a wide variety of activities and needs, the first month was complete chaos! It has taken an extreme amount of patience coupled with a lot of trial and error to get to a point in which we are all working together like a well oiled machine.&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">One key thing that helped was getting everyone an individual whiteboard dry erase calendar that we placed in their rooms. Not only did this make it easier to map out the weeks events surrounding school work, zoom meetings, extra-curricular activities, etc., but this also makes the daily expectations visible to our kids. This was an absolute life saver!</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">Another tip that has worked well during this work from home period is ensuring that we have meal options that are easily made with little to no adult supervision. I don't know how many times my kids have asked me to make them lunch or a snack at the most inopportune time possible! This not only saves me time, but it also gives my kids a sense of accomplishment because they are creating their meal themselves!</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN><FONT size="4"><STRONG><A href="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/_82" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-left" image-alt="unnamed.png" style="width: 168px;"><img src="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/image/serverpage/image-id/12131iD7CFB6DC7A397204/image-dimensions/168x254?v=1.0" width="168" height="254" role="button" title="unnamed.png" alt="unnamed.png" /></span>Gabi Urias</A>, Community Engagement Lead</STRONG></FONT></SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">I am naturally a busy body, so being at home this summer was challenging at first, but now I love my home better than ever! The reason is for my “office space”. After four different arrangements and putting my crafting supplies on display (which once was a shelf for pots and pans), I feel complete and ready to be creative.</SPAN></SPAN></P> <P><SPAN><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">&nbsp;</SPAN></SPAN></P> <P><SPAN><SPAN style="font-weight: 400;">&nbsp;If you’re feeling stuck, try putting decorations in a new spot, or change out your shelves for a new feel. I hope this helps! </SPAN></SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P class="lia-align-center"><SPAN>++++++</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Now it's YOUR turn!

<description>
<P>I recently got engaged and want to open a combined checking account between myself and my partner. I understand that there might be a gift tax trigger, but I don't really understand when/if this will occur? What other tax consequences do I need to consider?</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I simply want to have a joint checking account that we can each have our salaries directly deposited into and pay expenses from. Does it matter if one of us makes more than the other? Also what would happen if i transferred money from the joint account into a separate joint checking (or brokerage) account? Both accounts would be under the same bank (Schwabb), I just want it to be easy for us to deposit money into and transfer any leftover into savings (brokerage account).</P>

<P>I got married in 2020, after myself and my then girlfriend received stimulus checks. She got $1200, I got $238. Now that we will file a joint return for 2020,&nbsp; will I receive the difference? In addition, I have a child that I did not claim for 2019, as his other parent got to claim him for 2019. I get to claim him for 2020, will I receive a $500.00 credit for him?</P>

<P>If a federal employee began civil service on 30 March 1986, at which time he/she had 4 years of prior active military service (for which he/she made a military deposit to "buy back" the military service so it would count toward civil service retirement), and his/her Service Computation Date was adjusted to 04 February 1982, would his federal civil service retirement income be exempted from North Carolina state income tax based on the "Bailey Settlement"?</P>

<P>I am divorced and this is my year to claim my son.&nbsp; My ex told me I am able to claim the full amount of daycare expenses, including the half that he paid.&nbsp; Daycare has been providing me with statements for only my half and this is what I based my DCFSA on.&nbsp; Now I want to know what I am really able to claim and how I could adjust my FSA to add the additional amount he paid.&nbsp; Also, I believe I'm only allowed to claim up to 2500 being single, or am I allowed to claim the whole 5000? Thank you</P>

<P>My spouse claimed our children on his 2019 taxes that he filed WITH Turbo Tax January 2019. We were supposed to receive $1200 plus 2 Dependent according to the IRS calculator but instead we only received $1700. &nbsp;How can we get it corrected to receive the money ? And why is it wrong.&nbsp;</P>

<description>
<P>Hi folks, I'm a head of household filer. Single dad. Wanted some input on this: I received a $2,400 "stimulus" payment instead of the legislation's stated $1,200 (+$500 for dependent, e.g. my daughter) for HoH filers. Should I be expecting a nasty-gram from the IRS come tax season 2021? Or was there an amendment to the bill which dictated these payments differently than was widely reported? Feel free to contribute if you're in the same boat.&nbsp;</P>

<P>For 2019 I qualified for eic because my 19 year old son went to school full time. I did not claim him as a dependent though, because he made to much to qualify.&nbsp; He filed his own tax returns for both 2018 and 2019. He received them both by March (in 2019 and 2020, respectively). He has not gotten a stimulus check. IRS says that payment status not available. Since I didn't claim him as a dependent, shouldn't he qualify? Is their anything he can do?</P>

<P>Can anyone tell me how they managed to get their turbo debit card activated. I’ve gotten the run around for hours and still no legit solution. Nothing is adding up, all my info is allegedly incorrect, and conveniently there is now a malfunction on the system. It already had been 5 months I’ve been waiting for this card just to not be able to activate it.. Please help before I spend money on lawyers for this concern I don’t not take things lightly when it comes to money..&nbsp;</P>

<P>Hi All,</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I have an NRE account with an Indian bank account having x amount since 2018. The actual pay out of interest will have happen on 2021. which means i didn't receive any interest income for the 2019 tax year.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Question</P><P>1. When i am doing taxes for 2019, due i owe in taxes. or will owe it when i actually get the money in 2021</P><P>2. Is this considered a long term capital gain. which means i am taxed as per capital gain bracket on maturity in 2021, and not as per my income bracket.</P>

And still trying to deduct $330 out of my checking account no refund no payment right? That's what I thought TurboTax was all about why are you causing me such distress?</P>

Just do all activity in existing company and not worry that much about it?</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Basically, does branching out into activities outside of your tax code create the need to start new companies, or is there a tax code that is very general, like "holding company" or something like that?</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Thanks in advance!</P>

Rare occurrence of a second 2018/2019 stimulus check?

<description>
<P>Ok so, I have a extremely weird dilemma. I received a stimulus check in April for myself, and my three dependents. I claimed head of household for 2018. I didn't file my 2019 taxes yet due to me just getting married. My wife has not filed her 2018/2019 taxes either, and so did not receive a check due to not filing. I just filed my 2019 taxes on July 15th, the last day. My question is, since she did NOT receive any money nor did she file, would she be eligible to receive a stimulus check now under her social security number? I read that its extremely rare but could possibly happen.</P>

<title>EIP payment: dependent 2018 not 2019</title>

<description>
<P>Hi everyone! I'm asking about 1. my eligibility for a stimulus check 2. if eligible, when I should expect it. My situation is that I was a dependent in 2018, but not 2019. My parents (in April/May) had not yet filed their taxes, and the IRS used their 2018 return for the EIP. Therefore, they got a dependent payment since I was listed as their dependent. I filed my own taxes (as independent) at the beginning of this month (on 7/4 because I'm super patriotic ofc :P). I have not yet received any EIP payment, and when I go to "get my payment" it says that either I'm not eligible or they don't have enough info. Any advice on this would be super helpful, thanks!</P>

<P>Its getting increasing likely that a second stimulus check using the same requirements as the first one will be voted upon and sent out in August. I don't usually file taxes so for the first stimulus check I filled out the&nbsp;<SPAN>Stimulus Registration for non-tax filers form here on Turbotax and it was accepted&nbsp;and I got a direct deposit of the stimulus check. I was wondering will I have to fill out the form again if there's a second stimulus check or does the IRS still have all my information?</SPAN></P>

<P>My adult son who resides with me and whom I planned on claiming on my 2019 return automatically received a stimulas payment because he filed taxes in 2018.&nbsp; Does this mean that I cannot claim him on my 2019 return and if I do would he have to pay back the $1,200 stimulas money that he already received?</P>

<title>Adult child stimulus payment</title>
<link>
https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/other-financial-discussions/discussion/adult-child-stimulus-payment/01/1695831#M6944
</link>
<description>
<P>I claimed by adult child as a dependent in 2018 since she graduated from college that year. She was not claimed in 2019. She filed a separate return and received her tax refund and I filed a 2019 return not claiming her. She has received a tax refund direct deposited into her account in April. My daughter has not received a stimulus payment yet. Is there a possibility that the 2019 filing was overlooked and stimulus eligibility was based on the 2018 return? How do we get this adjusted? IRS has given her mixed answers that it is based on 2018 filing and also just 2019 filing. Everything I read is that it is based on 2019 filing and only on 2018 if there is not 2019 filing.</P>

<description>
<P>I have not yet filed for 2019 tax.&nbsp; I am ready to file tomorrow.</P><P>My income for 2018 was unusual because I had an unexpected, unplanned and unavoidable capital gains due to having left my employment and had to exercise and sold my employee stocks upon exit.&nbsp; The selling of that stock caused my 2018 gross income to be high, and not qualified for the COVID stimulus assistance.</P><P>My 2019 income is much lower, and when I file next week, will that new filing allow me to qualify for the stimulus assistance?</P><P>I understand for those who filed for 2019 early, they would determine your qualification for stimulus based on 2019, otherwise they would use 2018.&nbsp; I know my 2018 income was too high but my 2019 is back down to normal, but I am not filing until now, so will I still receive stimulus payment or did I miss it?</P>

<description>
<P>My TurboTax friends,</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Is there a way for me to pay for my COBRA premiums with pre-tax retirement dollars without taking that amount as income for that tax year?&nbsp; And no 10% early withdrawal penalty.&nbsp; And without having to Itemize Deductions (&gt;7.5% AGI 2019, &gt;10% AGI 2020).</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Situation:</P><P>* Unemployed, have already received 12 weeks of unemployment benefits.</P><P>* I have some 401(k) accounts.&nbsp; I don't have a Traditional IRA, but could roll 401(k) money into one, if needed.</P><P>* Paid first self-paid COBRA payment in Dec19.&nbsp; Prior COBRA payments were covered as a part of severance.&nbsp; I'm still paying for COBRA out of pocket in tax year 2020.</P><P>* I don't want to take a hardship withdrawal from a 401(k) and I don't know if my it'd qualify for it.</P><P>* I'm &lt;59.5 years old.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I understand that I could roll some 401(k) money into a Traditional IRA and take a distribution from the Traditional IRA without the 10% early withdrawal penalty, but I'm trying to find a mechanism to pay these premiums with pre-tax money, just as I paid my health insurance premiums with pre-tax money with my old employer.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Thanks!</P>

<P>Hi,</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>My parents transferred ~$40,000 from India to my account last year. I am a US Citizen . I have been reading online and see two forms 709 and 3520 . I am not sure which one do we need to submit ?</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Form 709 talks about lifetime gift tax limit , is this for parents who are US citizens and children who are US citizens?&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Form 3520 talks about reporting only if you get $100,000 from foreign national in a year . Else if you want you can still fillup the form and just let the IRS know .</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>It would be of great help if anyone can help me with this ...Thanks !!</P>

<P>When I tried to pay TurboTax, I had the program fill in all of the credit card information from last year and all appeared correct, but when I tried to proceed with the payment, the notification was that I needed to enter my name as it appeared on the credit card.&nbsp; I entered all of the correct information in each section myself, but I got the same message.&nbsp;&nbsp;</P>

I will do my on due diligence and analysis to determine if it works for me in worse case scenario.</P>

<description>
<P>My mortgage loan was sold to another bank and turbo tax seems to think I have 2 mortgages (doesn’t realize I did not have 2 loans at the same time) and should be phased out since thinks I have 1.5 M (two 0.75M loans) in loans instead of one 0.75 M loan.&nbsp; How do I make sure I don’t incorrectly get phased out for my mortgage tax deduction?</P>

<title>Form 8379 & owing the irs</title>

<description>
<P>My husband is paying back child support so they took our entire $2400. I am trying to fill out the form 8379 for injured spouse and get my $1200. But it wants out “tax” information. That would be fine except that we owe the irs money. We have to pay them so I don’t think filing this form with that information is really going to get my money back. Please help me. I’ve looked all over for help and I can’t get thru to the irs on the phone. Thank you.&nbsp;</P>

<title>Taxes on Inheritance</title>

<description>
<P>Upon my parent's death, I inherited $775,000. I would like to withdraw $275,000 to pay off my home, and some credit card debt.&nbsp; I have read that only the interest earnings in the inherited investments are taxable.&nbsp; Is this true? My current balance in my investment account is actually back up to the amount that was initially inherited with the recent fluctuating economy.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>My husband and I currently gross $135,000. I just want to prepare in the event this withdrawal amount is taxable, and, if so,&nbsp; I would then be reporting my annual income plus the investment withdrawal at $310,000 instead of $135,000, which is just our regular earnings.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Any advice?</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P>

<title>Stimulus/ Amended Return Delay</title>
<link>

<description>
<P>Have a stimulus/amended return issue and I'm hoping someone can help provide some insight.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>So I hit all the qualifications for a stimulus check and did not receive one. I believe it's due to a combination of the following:</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>2019 Return: Due to a W2 error, I had to make an amendment a few months back. I am aware that with the IRS extremely backed up and with amendments returns being paper only, I'm most likely not going to have a processed return until (hopefully) the end of August. Leaving my return unable for the IRS to reference for the previous stimulus qualification.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>2018 Return: In 2018 I mistakingly noted on my turbo tax return that "I could be claimed" as a dependent. Although I was mistaken and my parents did not end up claiming me or attempt to (after speaking with their accountant, as I was 24 and not enrolled in any college that year as a FT student).</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Now I'm assuming that due to this I was marked as inelgiable for a stimulus.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Any thoughts if the IRS will send a delayed stimulus once my amended return is processed? Or if I simply missed the time frame and will fall through the cracks here.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Or perhaps whether I'd be able to call the IRS and be considered eligible for the missedstimulus? Given my 2019 is pending and in 2018 I was not actually claimed as a dependent by anyone nor was a even able to be.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Any insight would be appreciated, from the last time I checked calling the IRS only resulting in automated systems. Not sure if that changed recently.</P>

Here's what to do if your stimulus check was put on a TurboCard that you no longer have

<description>
<P>Both these people and Green Dot Bank will not help you in this situation.&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><SPAN>Contact the IRS appointment center hotline and tell them that your stimulus check was sent to the wrong bank account. The best way to do this is to call irsphonenumber844 irsphonenumber545 irsphonenumber5640 (ignore the text in the phone number. do not try and dial text. i just did that so that the website didn't block out the number). Say you would like to make an appointment with them by pressing 1. This WILL connect you to a real person. If you are in a state where IRS offices are NOT closed due to the COVID 19 pandemic, then you can set up an in-person appointment. Otherwise, they will connect you to another REAL PERSON who can help with the issue, however, you will to to wait on hold again.</SPAN></P><P>&nbsp;</P><P><SPAN>I know this situation is heartbreaking and complicated for many people, and it can seem like you have no allies, but I went through this as well, and while the solutions provided were often not thorough enough, this is hopefully a good enough manual to get you through this particular situation. Stay strong.&nbsp;&nbsp;</SPAN></P>
