Question: I owe student loans and haven't started paying on them, when my husband and I file taxes will the IRS take it.?
And would it be better if we filed separately or jointly. If separate will they still take the taxes? Also will they still take it if I start to pay on them.btw the loans are not in a collection agency they r just like a month behind from the amount that I have to pay a month. So will they take the whole amount from the loan or just the amount I pay a month...someone please help me
one last thing, if i get a deferment and don't pay on it...which by the way is like 177$past due on the amount will they still take the taxes. or if i pay the past due amount and it is still in deferment will they still take them. or what if they are in delinquent status and i pay the 177 month past due amount will they take them? please someone help me

Application Available for Reduced Installment Agreement User Fee
WASHINGTON — The application for requesting a reduced fee for entering into an installment agreement for the payment of federal taxes owed is available, the Internal Revenue Service announced today. Form 13844, Application for Reduced User Fee for Installment Agreements, is used to request the reduction. The IRS is working to automate the application process to calculate the appropriate user fees up front, eventually phasing out Form 13844.
Effective January 1, 2007, user fees rose to $105 for non-direct debit agreements, $52 for direct debit agreements and $45 for reinstatements. Individuals entering into an installment agreement with income at or below certain established levels, based on the Department of Health and Human Services poverty guidelines, can apply to pay a reduced user fee of $43 for new agreements. This also includes agreements where payments are deducted directly from a bank account. Form 13844 contains steps an individual can use to determine if they qualify for a reduced fee. Qualified applicants should submit the form to the IRS within 30 days from the date of their installment agreement acceptance letter.
Form 13844 does not prevent an applicant’s current year refunds, if any, from being applied to prior taxes being paid in installments or to prior taxes the IRS has deemed currently not collectible. To be eligible for an installment agreement, a taxpayer must first file all tax returns they are required to file and be current with estimated tax payments, if applicable.
The reduced user fee for individuals with incomes at or below the established levels does not apply to corporations or partnerships. And there are no user fees for continuous wage levies initiated by IRS collection personnel. Form 13844 should not be filed for these situations. Form 13844 is available in the Forms and Publications section of the IRS Web site at IRS.gov or may be ordered by calling toll-free 1-800-TAX-FORM (1-800-829-3676).

Michigan Earned Income Tax Credit - You Earned It - You Keep It
Question: Inherited US savings bonds questions - taxes?
Series I bonds from mother's estate were jointly owned by mother and a child. Three of the five children's bonds remain. (The other two batches were redeemed to help finance a new home for mother.) Now we need to distribute those bonds and other funds equally to the five children. Since the bonds have different accumulated interest (ranging from $2000-$5000) and everyone's tax rate is different - what is the best way to fairly distribute these bonds? The I Bonds are now paying almost 8%!! OR, can the bonds be cashed and taxable to the estate? OR, is there some way to do this that I haven't considered. THANKS in advance for any help!!!!
Answer: I am not sure about I-bonds, but MOST assets are inherited at the MARKET value on the date of death. That means any interest accrued up to the date of death is NOT taxed to anyone.
