IRS has a new $600 Form 1099 Reporting requirements for Third Party Network transactions ie Venmo, CashApp, zelle, apple pay, Paypal. This is for “sales of goods and services”, this is not for payments to reimburse friends and family. American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 No new tax law, this will just now make the IRS aware that you have this income, so if it does not end up on your return, the IRS will be asking for it. https://youtu.be/uYyUhvvL0ckhttps://eataxresolutions.com/

Run through an example where the taxpayer forgot to include stocks on his return, and the IRS gave him a fun notice.  I go A-Z on how to respond to these things properly to pay the correct amount, in this case $15k less.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MXWOHExTT0   https://eataxresolutions.com/   #tax #IRS #CP2000 #turbotax

There are many things to consider, and if you haven't got previous experience, it could get confusing.We help you answer some of the most common mortgage questions.How Much Down Payment Will You Need?While it was traditionally a requirement to have a 20% down payment, that is no longer the case.

The Lowdown on Closing Costs for Beachfront Properties in Orange County, CA Closing fees for oceanfront homes in Orange County, California, are an expected but sometimes neglected element of the real estate arrangement.  But, in order to know how much you'll have to spend, you'll need to incorporate these charges into your calculations - on top of the down payment and other apparent upfront expenditures.The good news is that they aren't always irreversible. Closing expenses are generally determined by the property's location, the businesses utilized, and, of course, the property's selling price. Furthermore, certain parts of the costs are negotiable. Whether you're a buyer or a seller, you should be aware of the fees associated with closing; otherwise, you may end yourself spending cons...
