Mmmm, maples.

I want to live on a large expanse of land, but avoid insane $$$ in property taxes. They say having a farm is the way to go. In that vein: How many maple and birch trees would I have to grow and tap to produce enough syrup of each for personal use? (I'm guessing a gallon if I eat pancakes regularly.) [more inside]

Multi-State Tax Fiasco

I am having some major tax issues and can't find the right way to go about filing for 2010. I left to travel abroad in January 2010. However, I was finally paid my last part of a bonus in March 2010. I forwarded my address to my parents house in Illinois - but officially I don't really have proof that I actually lived in IL (No lease, no driver's license etc.). To make things more complicated I lived in NYC and worked in Connecticut. Therefore, I have NY State, NY City and CT state taxes taken out of my pay check. Then I moved to Wisconsin in August of the same year. What do I do/What state should I claim I was living in when I was received my final pay check? 1. Claim I was living in IL? 2. Claim I am not a resident of any state when I was last paid? 3. Claim I was living in WI? 4. Another option I am not thinking about? Any advice would be appreciated/I know you aren't a tax professional!

I Have a Real Estate Tax Question...

A real estate/math/tax question. I sold my house for $210,000. The buyers wanted a new roof but wanted that included in the loan so the sale price was changed to $217,000 and the $7000 for the roof was paid out of escrow. When I do my taxes next year do I need the receipt for the roof or do the buyers? I believe that since I technically paid for the roof, the cost of the roof could be used to offset the capital gains on the house. What do you think?

Seeking Personal Recommendation for DC Tax Preparer

Can you personally recommend a reasonably priced tax accountant in Washington, D.C.? I'd like to keep the cost under $500. Also, I think I'd prefer an accountant in a solo or small practice, for the personal touch, but if you've had a great experience with a big firm or chain, do tell. Finally, I'm looking for someone with an office that's Metro accessible and not too far outside the city. [more inside]

RRSP Contribution Timing

Let's say Jack is in his 20s and in March 2011 he gets his first ever paycheque of $1000. He wants to put $100 into an RRSP account. When can he make this first deposit? Is it right away in March 2011, the first day in January 2012, or in April 2012 after he finally gets all his tax forms and files his taxes, getting a notice of assessment that states his contribution limit?

Death, Taxes, and my LLC

My LLC is going legit January 1st in Michigan. I'm a brand new business owner in an economically depressed state and I'm starting to turn a profit which means dealing with taxes and the IRS. I'm young, I don't know anything about business taxes, and I'm somewhat frustrated at how painful this is for a new business owner who just wants to pay his fair share. I have an accountant who I know is really good, but I need to know kind of the general picture of what is happening so I can stay on top of things. I don't want to throw it all on the accountant and I want to be proactive. [more inside]
