Q) I think it was last year, I drove to Wilmington and tried to fix my “taxes owed” for 2012, 2013 and 2014. I knew there was NO way I owed the state because I was in college all three years and had 3 sons living at home. I emailed the stuff that the man asked for, but it only corrected 2012. I would like someone to take a look and see if he applied my credits for my sons back to the other 2 years, and to see what may have still not applied because now they are taking it out of our pay. There is NO WAY I owe 1000’s of dollars in taxes when I only worked part time for one of those years, and I was paying for college out of pocket in 2014/2015. I know for a fact that we also give over 10% of our money to charities (our church) each year. Just this year we gave over $11,000 to our church and we have always given large sums to the church. Please help me! I feel like we’ve always given so much of our money and time to the work of God and now we are getting even more taken from us.
A) I understand that you are concerned about your taxes. You believe that you should not owe any taxes because you were in college and had three sons living at home. You also believe that you should be able to deduct your charitable contributions.
Here are some steps you can take to address your concerns:
- Review your tax returns. Make sure that you have all of your tax returns for the years in question. Review your returns to make sure that all of your income and deductions are accurately reported.
- Contact the IRS. If you believe that there is an error on your tax return, you can contact the IRS. The IRS may be able to help you resolve the issue.
- Hire a tax professional. If you are unable to resolve the issue on your own, you can hire a tax professional to help you. A tax professional can review your tax returns and help you file an amended return if necessary.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
