  • As much as I think Trump is a good president, i would much rather have Mike Pence. He would restore religious liberties to America...?

    i'd like to know how is it that so many fundamentalist christians have been so deluded to support that lying, corrupt, self-serving misogynist that is only in office because of all the people that did NOT vote.

    you can deduct the loss to the extent of your gain + $3000 off of ordinary income on the federal return. if you're using software the carryforward loss should automatically adjust. it's when you change modes of preparation that information can easily get lost. it should be shown on the carry over loss on sched d line 14 & the worksheet that calculates it, but that's a very common item that can be overlooked when changing the software or person preparing your taxes from year to year. also the state laws are different than federal. some only allow you to deduct you loss against gains or gains + dividends, depending on your state. the state carryforward does not always match the federal & can be even more easily lost over time if you haven't been able to use any of it....

  • I am 65 years old and still working for the state. I have not always worked for the state. Should i start collecting my SS at age 66?

    you should first investigate what your options are for how much social security you are entitled to if you work for the state. there is usually some reduction of benefit for any time you are eligible for a state pension. whether you collect at 66 also depends how much you need it. social security alone is not taxable, it depends what your other... show more
    you should first investigate what your options are for how much social security you are entitled to if you work for the state. there is usually some reduction of benefit for any time you are eligible for a state pension. whether you collect at 66 also depends how much you need it. social security alone is not taxable, it depends what your other income is to make it so. do you need it to live on? if not, you could get a substantial amount more if you wait till 70. it never benefits to wait beyond that. if you are still working & don't need it, i'd wait till your income bracket may be lower. of course it depends how much other money you may be pulling from retirement accounts whether your income will be lower or not. if you're planning to stop working & aren't pulling from retirement accounts it may make sense. you should definitely investigate what you are entitled to at 66 & at 70 and what your current & future income is to decide.

    if it's only $240 in total, it's not worth fighting whether you are in employee or a contractor. i've seen people get nailed by that for a LOT more money. you can file a form ss-8 with the irs if you feel that you were supposed to be an employee but it's tough to win... if they can cover their bases that they told you you were an independent contractor & you agreed, you 'll waste a lot of time & possibly money fighting it. you can't have worked a whole lot of hours to have gotten paid $240 & no one is obligated to pay any benefits for that little amount of work. usually people have to be employed more than 20 hours a week to have some level of benefits. employers are not required to report income they pay out under $600, but that doesn't mean they won't. they also want to deduct those payments from their income so you are required to report it. do you have expenses to write off against that $240?. you could amend your tax return with at 1040X to file that income & deduct any supplies you purchased to do that job... and your mileage to go to a job site. the irs wants to see written logs of where & when you traveled if you get audited, so you have to know that information. if you have legitimate expenses to deduct against that income on a schedule c or c-ez, you can reduce it significantly. any net income over $400 is charged 15% social security tax in addition to your marginal tax rate, plus any state tax you would owe.
