Can someone send a tax return back in the mail?

My boyfriend just moved out of an apartment, and his ex-room mate apparently told their mail man that my boyfriend doesnt live there anymore, so he made them take back my boyfriend’s Tax Return. Can someone really do that? I know its illegal for the room mate to hold my boyfriend’s tax return, but I’m just wondering if this son of a bitch is telling the truth or not. Thank you for your time and answers.

Sure can when it is a incorrect name and address for the current taxpayer that does live at this address at that time and it goes back to the FMS as being undeliverable at that time because that taxpayer was not living at that address at that time OK.
So now BF does and will have to contact the IRS and give them a correct good address at this time in his life so that they can attempt to mail it out to him again.
He just might be able to do this from the WMR website when he use it to check on his refund and the message would tell him that his refund had been returned to the FMS because of the incorrect address at that time and if it does say this it may offer him a chance to enter a new correct address at that time in his life OK failing to be able to change it at this time. Then next step would have to be the form 8822
Use Form 8822, Change of Address, to submit an address or name change any time during the year;

• Give the IRS written notification of your new address by writing to the IRS center where you file your return. Include your full name, old and new addresses, Social Security Number or Employer Identification Number and signature.
Visit http://www.irs.gov for more information about changing your address. At http://www.irs.gov, you can also find the address of the IRS center where you file your tax return or download Form 8822. The form is also available by calling 800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676).
Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 05/06/2013

Is Obama throwing conservatives a bone or waving an olive branch for tax reform over the IRS case?

On the IRS issues, Obama is waving an Olive branch in your faces saying we need tax reform. The Middle Class is taking a beating from Corporate cronies like under Bush. We can’t have that anymore. Did you see how Obama Taxes the rich? But Republicans made him tax the middle class more too.

Conservatives love the tax code because it favors corporations. Liberals want the rates to inflict payment from the wealthiest of the wealthy. Wake UP People and do the Tax Reform thing!

They would rather point fingers than fix things

Exploring Issues in Tax Policy – Elements of Corporate Taxation

corporate tax Professor Daniel Shaviro
Professor of Taxation
New York University, School of Law

Taxation has always been a major part of American politics and continues to be the focus for debate and discussion, especially when reform is desired. To understand this complex issue the Mercatus Center at George Mason University is pleased to present a three-day course on current tax policy and past reform movements.

Lawmakers strive to create “the best” tax systems, but policies may yield surprising results in practice. To better comprehend the basics of taxation, Dr. Garett Jones of George Mason University will review the current tax system from an economic perspective and explore how shifts in tax policy affect individual behavior and the economy as a whole in Tax 101: An Overview of Taxation.

Today, presidential candidates clamor to voice their opinions on tax policy while Representative Rangel’s tax proposal offers some of the most ambitious reforms of recent years. Similarly, the Tax Reform Act of 1986 provided for some of the most extensive changes in recent decades. Dr. Jones will return to present Sweeping Changes: Tax Reform in 1986 as an overview of this historical piece of bipartisan legislation to discuss how the economic conditions and political players of the time induced policy change and find out what lessons lawmakers can learn from this period.

Additionally, debate in tax reform persists as concerns about tax loopholes, offshore accounts and the global competitiveness of American enterprise continue. Consequently, changes in Corporate Tax policy are often highlighted as ways to address these issues. Yet such reforms may affect how businesses and individuals invest their time and resources. Professor Daniel Shaviro, a leading scholar on taxation from New York University Law School, will analyze how the various elements of the U.S. corporate tax system operate as a whole while describing how these policies affect the U.S. economy with Elements of Corporate Taxation.

Is this a good tax reform plan?

I call it the 5 5′s Tax Reform Plan which would put a 5% tax on five type of taxes that are the following:
5% Income Tax
5% Property Tax
5% Corporate Tax
5% Dividends Tax
5% National Sales Tax
Is this a good Tax Reform plan or not? I am not an expert on economics but I is this a good plan or not? Pros and Cons? Could this hurt the people in the US as well as the economy or would it stimulate the economy? Could this replace the IRS?

No, because it won’t raise nearly enough revenue to support the current system.

If you tinker with the tax code, do you possibly believe it would benefit you?

How does income tax work for Canadians working in the States?

If you work and live in the States, but are a Canadian citizen and own property in Canada, how does Income Tax affect you?

For example: Sidney Crosby makes about 8.7 million dollars a year. (Feel free to use an athlete of your choice if you don’t like him, this is just for examples sake) He lives in Pittsburgh for most of the year, but isn’t (as far as I know) a naturalized American citizen. He also owns property in Canada.

How much of his pay goes to taxes and which country does it go to? Canada or America?

We have a tax treaty with the USA. It is basically designed so that a person doesn’t face double taxation on their income. They pay income tax in the country where they reside. If they reside in both countries, there are tie-breaker rules.

If he were a US citizen, he would be required to file a US tax return every year, no matter where he lives, reporting his world-wide income.

If he has income from his property in Canada he would report that income in Canada regardless where he lives.

If he has to pay tax in the country where he’s non-resident, he’ll get credit for it in his tax return for the other.

For athletes, they are considered to be earning income in the country where they are playing, so he’ll have income in both countries and will have to file Tax Returns in both.
