Needed: Post-Summertime Eligible Dependent Care Expense Ideas

YNMA, obviously... wife and I overestimated our dependent care expenses this year...by a lot. I have to come up with valid expenses, for the remainder of 2010, that we can occur to cover 3K remaining in our account. Any ideas?

IRS woes! I've gotten myself into a little bit of a pickle, and I'm not sure how large it is. I made all of my state tax payments for 2009, but only half of my federal.

Tax implications of selling on Amazon

If I sell off some of my books on Amazon, is that income I need to pay taxes on? I ask because I'll generally be selling my books at a loss - they're books I bought for myself, am done reading and want out of my spare bedroom. It's not exactly the product of a business plan.

Corporations and taxes

A friend and I are starting up a company. The company will be domiciled in New York City, possibly incorporated elsewhere. We have attorneys who will give us legal advice about incorporation issues. We also have investors who will give us financial and accounting advice as needed, though I come from a finance and accounting background. What I don't know too much about, though, is the various taxes to which a corporation is subject. More detail inside. [more inside]

Do tax refund checks expire?

I just found my US tax refund check that was mailed to me in 2009, and never deposited. Last year, I filed my taxes on time, was mailed a refund, lost the check and never followed up. If I take this to my bank, will they let me deposit it? If not, what's the next step? (Anonymous because I'm ashamed of being so disorganized and so bad with money. I'm working on it.)

Tricky ways to get property

I've heard that a person can acquire a property for which the property taxes are in default by paying the back taxes. This seems fishy, and morally questionable, but is it true? In Los Angeles? Are there other tricky ways to acquire property?

Tax question re net loss carry forward

If one lives in State A and sustains a business loss and has an eligible net carry loss forward that will run over several years, and then one moves to State B the next year after the year in which the loss is sustained, is it accurate that none of the net carry loss forward can be used in State B, eg although one still retains the benefit for federal tax purposes, moving to another state effectively loses the opportunity to use the net loss carry forward for state tax purposes since you're now living in a state in which the loss was not originally incurred?

Didn't file 1099B correctly last year, got a letter

I discovered a year later that I had to file a 1099B, but I wasn't really clear on the concept and couldn't figure out how to do it online, so I didn't get it done until like half a year after I had filed my regular taxes.

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.
