For pretty terrible (and irrelevant) reasons, I haven't filed my taxes in (I think) 5 years. Now I really really need to do them, but I don't know how to start and I get panicky just thinking about the insurmountable piles of paperwork, potential money owing, and even criminal charges. I'm in QC, Canada. If anyone else has dealt with late filing or voluntary disclosure in Quebec, please help! [more inside]

Most of the part-year stuff on Turbotax seems to assume a clean break - that you lived in one state, worked there, then moved and established a residence in a new state. But we moved, established a residence in a new state, and then while there, still had work income from the first state. How the hell do we show this on tax returns? [more inside]

I feel like this should be really easy, but I'm coming up with a non-sensical result. I am considering taking a job that would involve a pay cut (long story, I promise it's worth it). I am trying to calculate what my actual paycheck would be. I'm using the paycheck calculator at Paycheckcity.com to figure this out. But the number it's giving me for California state income tax doesn't seem right. [more inside]

My wife and I file our federal taxes jointly but our Iowa taxes separately. She works part-time and has a fraction of my income. It appears that we would pay lower state taxes if our income was split more evenly between us. Can I make gifts to her (of cash or perhaps shares), deduct them from my taxable income, and add them to her taxable income?

My funds to pay my (large) tax bill might not clear into the account I transferred them to until April 16th or 17th.

My friend and I were having a discussion over acceptable marginal tax rates. I'm wondering where I would look to quickly find out how much of my income I would have to pay in state and federal taxes at different income levels. Is there a quick (online) way to figure this out? Exclude complications like stocks, marriage, other tax breaks, etc. If you want a specific salary, how much would I have to pay in taxes on a $100,000 salary? Thanks!
