Selling Real Estate, and Not Buying Again Immediately

My house sold earlier this month. I am not buying a new house right away, but... maybe? How long can I wait? How will this affect taxes? And if I could buy property, should I in order to avoid penalties (if there are any)? You are not my lawyer or my accountant, but way more details with a little bit of drama after the jump.

US Tax Law Change for Americans Living Abroad

As a US citizen, living and working abroad for many years, I recently heard of a new law that I must file tax returns on the US by Aug 31, 2011 or face a penalty. Anyone know about this? If US citizens live and pay taxes abroad, they generally are exempt up to $91,500.

Is it worth forming an LLC and in which state?

I'd been wanting to form a corporaton for a long time. So many benefits it seems:
  • track business expenses for income-tax deductions
  • protect assets against law-suits
  • gain credibility for certain transactions
  • privacy
  • But all the gory details are getting me down... [more inside]

    How to protect an inheritance/gift from taxation?

    My dad passed away this year and my mom has very generously decided to gift the house to my sister and I rather than. The house is in Canada, I live in the U.S. (Permanent residence). My sister and brother in law bought my half of the house when the mortgage was due (approximately April 1st) so I now suddenly have a 6 digit lump sum of cash in a Canadian account. I have not signed anything yet. I want to protect this from taxation, I also don't want to jeopardize my permanent residence status or potential citizenship. I know I need a lawyer, but what kind and how do I find a good one? I am in Wisconsin, particularly Eau Claire since that's probably important.

    Do I need a business license?

    Last year I got most of my income for working from home in the state of Virginia. I did work for a company that is not owned by me and was located in another town in Virginia. I got a 1099 as an individual from the company for the work that I did. This work was all conducted by phone and email, no one came to my home. I recently got a letter in the mail from the City of Winchester, VA saying that I did not register as a business in the city and that I needed to pay back licensing fees. I know you're not my lawyer, but do I have to do this?
