Is there “a mother-in-law living with you and eating your groceries” tax credit?
There are certain rules governing whether or not you can claim someone as a dependent including: One of the requirements to claim a dependent parent is their taxable income must be less than $3,800 this year.  If you mother-in-law doesn’t file a joint return, she is a U.S. citizen, resident, national, or a resident of Canada or Mexico and she does not provide more than half of her own support, you may be able to claim her as a dependent.  Additional information on dependents can be found on the Jackson Hewitt website: www.jacksonhewitt.com

Did income taxes go up for the middle class? 
Tax year 2012 turned out to be a confusing one with the late changes to the tax law by Congress – this is why we are seeing the IRS delay the date they will begin accepting returns (January 30).  Taxes have changed for everyone, no matter what your income level. Jackson Hewitt recommends speaking with a Tax Pro to ensure you’re getting the most out of tax season. If you leave off a deduction or credit that you were not aware you qualified for, the IRS does not add these in for you. Speaking with a professional could help. Jackson Hewitt would be happy to assist you with your tax return, to make sure you’re making the most of your individual situation.

Why does FAFSA need to know your tax information?

What is the benefit of renting out a room when deductions are mortgage interest & charitable donations?
Our friends at Jackson Hewitt have noted that if you want to rent a room in your home this would become a rental activity.  You would need to file a Schedule E with our tax return tor report your rental income and expenses.  All expenses for that room would be a rental expense including depreciation on the part of the house rented.  You would also be able to take a portion of your mortgage interest, utilities, taxes, etc. as expenses.

What about Turbo Tax?  I used an H&R Block tax program and got $2,500 back.  I used Turbo Tax the next year and got $6,500 back.  Is Jackson Hewitt better? 
Jackson Hewitt will dig deep making sure you get every deduction and credit you qualify for.  One of the benefits of working with a Jackson Hewitt Tax Pro is that you can be sure your taxes are done according to your individual situation. With software, there’s always a chance that you may be leaving off a deduction or credit, and the IRS does not add these back in. There’s also the chance that an error could be made, leaving you to owe money later. Each and every paid return at Jackson Hewitt comes with an Accuracy Guarantee. Additional information on the Accuracy Guarantee can be found here: www.jacksonhewitt.com.

I have a lien by the I.R.S. I haven’t file in years, but have worked jobs with taxes coming out. Because of being on drugs and lack of knowledge, I didn’t understand how it works. Now at the age of retirement approaching, and a clear mind I realize I must get right with the I.RS. What approach should I take? I really need the right answer because of all the ads, I don’t want to spend the money the wrong way. Thanks.
