Question: Is my disability income taxable?

Amounts received under a private accident policy for which you pay the premiums are also nontaxable. To the extent your employer pays the insurance premiums, your benefits will be subject to tax.

Tip: An IRS agent will never call a taxpayer over the phone without first sending an official letter, and will neither threaten a taxpayer nor demand immediate payment. They’ll also never ask for credit card or debit card numbers over the phone. If you are contacted by a suspected scammer, report it to the IRS by calling 800-366-4484.

Tip: If your refund amount is different than the amount on your tax return, try to understand why this is the case before cashing the check. Follow up with the IRS for an explanation about the missing amount. Amounts cashed that are larger than you expect can actually cause problems if the IRS expects repayment.

The IRS says it issues nine of 10 refunds within 21 days. However, electronically filed returns will usually get a refund faster than those filed by paper in the mail. Don't expect that turnaround with a paper filed return, however. The IRS says they are still processing a backlog of last year's returns and don't expect to be caught up until year end.

Question: Is the sale of my residence taxable?
Answer: That depends on the amount of profit from the sale. Single taxpayers can exclude from tax up to $250,000 of profit on a home sale and married couples can exclude up to $500,000. To take the full exclusion, you must generally have owned and used the home as your principal residence at least two of the five years prior to its sale. Also, you can't use the exclusion more than once every two years. A reduced exclusion may apply in some cases. Prior to selling your home it is important to review your situation.

Small business owners have a number of options on how to organize their business for tax purposes. Many small, single owner, businesses are not incorporated, and are deemed "sole proprietors", in the eyes of the IRS. Other business entities, like C-Corporations, are taxed as a separate entity with distributions to owners taxed a second time as dividends. Still others are deemed "flow-through" entities like S-Corporations and Limited Liability Companies (LLC).
