The IRS sent me a form 1065, but I am a sole proprietor. Do I ignore this form and fill out a schedule C?
I would assume that you applied for an employer identification number and checked the partnership box by mistake instead of sole proprietor. If this is the case, this requires you to obtain a new EIN.If you properly filled out the application for an EIN, you can ignore the 1065 notice.Your EIN acknowledgement letter from the IRS will state what type of return they expect you to file under the EIN.
If the IRS knows how much money we owe, why do we need to fill out returns?
Because the IRS doesn't know how much money you owe. They know approximately what you made, and they know a little bit about some of your deductions, but they don't know whether and to what extent you are entitled to additional deductions or credits, or whether and to what extent you earned money from transactions not reported to the IRS. Even on the transactions that were reported to the IRS, the IRS doesn't always know how much of that income is actually taxable - or at what rate.
I want to invest my IRS withholdings. How do I fill out a W-4 so my employer does not do federal withholding?
Legally you can’t. Those withholdings are not yours. They are payments towards your tax liability, made at the time that you earn the income. Pay as you go. It makes sense.So what you want to do is borrow money that isn’t really yours, interest free, invest it for a few months, and then pay it back the next year. Is that correct? While it’s not really permitted you can manage to get away with it. You can’t easily get away with stopping all withholding. That requires stating that you expect to pay zero taxes for the year, which you know is false. It looks suspicious and is easy for the feds to check. Instead, what you can do is reduce your withholding by claiming a large number of exemptions. That’s not nearly as suspicious. When you complete your return you’ll owe a lot of tax, which is clearly against the rules, but you’ll probably get away with it at least for a year or two and maybe longer depending on how lax the IRS is in enforcing the law on scamsters like yourself.I used to claim a large number of exemptions. It was legitimate since I actually had a lot of deductions at that time. But a couple of years I accidentally withheld too little money, more than a couple of thousand dollars. I paid the tax with my return and adjusted my withholding going forward and the IRS didn’t penalize me or question it afterwards. But if you’re talking about under withholding by a lot more than that and year after year then good luck. You might get caught, forced to pay a penalty and interest, and be flagged for special attention in the future.
How can I deduct on my Federal income taxes massage therapy for my chronic migraines? Is there some form to fill out to the IRS for permission?
As long as your doctor prescribed this, it is tax deductible under the category for medical expenses. There is no IRS form for permission.
According to instructions, if you earn less than $1,500, say $15 in interest, you don't have to fill out a Schedule B--if it's ordinary income, where do you put it on the new forms? (I know the government won't give up a penny in tax.)
If you have less than $1500 in interest income, and do not attach Schedule B, you should report your total taxable interest directly on Form 1040, Line 2b.
