Question: What tax form do I need to fill out for an LLC?
My LLC used to be a partnership, but we dissolved it for 2006 filing. So it's just me now. So I'm unsure what tax form to fill out. The LLC didn't do anything in 2007 so it's going to be all $0.
I didn't file it "final report" because I still want to keep the company open. So which form then?
Answer: It depends on how you filled out the 2006 1065 return. If you marked the box "Final Return" in 2006 then the IRS will not be looking for your 2007 1065 return.
If you did not mark the "Final Return" box in 2006 - the IRS will probably be looking for your 2007 1065 so you probably should file a 1065 in 2007, mark the "Final Return" box and show the change to a single member on the K-1s.
Once you have filed your final 1065 for the partnership, as a single member LLC, the IRS treats you as a Schedule C entity...

Question: Is a wage continuance from a personal injury considered an income?
my husband had an accident and we lost all benefits and income We now receive wage continuance from auto insurance. (that is non taxable) Does this qualify us for government assistance with out reporting this as income? Or is this considered income?
Answer: It is considered "Unearned" income, and if your receiving it from an insurance company and not in cash, you will have to report it, if you don't the assistance program you applied for will be able to find it and you will get into trouble. Just depositing it in your account will set a red flag to investigate.
Depending on the amount received and how many members in your house hold will depend on whether you will still qualify or not.

Question: 2008 Tax Tables: Taxable Income?
I'm looking at the 2008 New York State Tax Tables, and I'm trying to find out which tax bracket I "fall into".
It asks for taxable income. What do I subtract from my gross income to determine taxable income? My husband and I are filing "married filing joint". Again, this is for New York State.
Does anybody know? Thanks in advance
Answer: From the website, you need to have a look at the form (The correct form you need to file, if you live part-year in NY, you may need to file Form IT-201, short form IT-150 for who live in NY whole year)
Try to file till line 37; it is your taxable income. The first two pages, which end with line 37 include Federal Income and Adjustments, New York additions, New York subtractions, Standard deductions or Itemized deductions, then you come up with your taxable income on line 37. The amount on line 37 is repeated on line 38 (the first line of page 3).
Use that amount; if it is LESS than $65,000 then you use NYS tax table; if it is MORE than $65,000 then you use NYS tax rate schedule.
