Question: If I file Head Of House Hold and I am still married will I be audited by the IRS?
My husband and I are still married but do not live together any more. He moved out early last year May 2009. We do not have a legal seperation or any divorce proceedings. In fact he come to the house to get his mail from the mail box but that is it. We have 3 children that I have full responsibility for. Can I claim all my kids and file HOH? I am just worried that I will be audited by the IRS. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
To those who answered so far, yes we lived apart for more than 6 months out of the year. May 2009 to current.
If I were to be audited, what would I have to have to show that I did support my children. As I said my husband didn’t change his address nor did we change bank accounts or anything like that. I have my paystubs, and all bills are in my name that I pay from a joint checking account which also shows my direct deposit from my paycheck.
Answer: If you are telling the truth here, there is no problem with filing head of house hold, and he should file married filing separately to avoid the chance of being audited. The one of you, who will file married filing separately should provide the name of the other spouse, social security number on line 3 of 1040

Question: I need a copy of my 1040 ez for my FASFA . . .?
Ok, I’ll make this short. I am from Oregon and my dad is in Oregon and I am in Alaska for the summer working. My dad is filling out my FASFA for me (for school) and he needs my tax return information. I know I have a copy of it somewhere at my apartment but he can’t find it, so I need a copy of my 1040 EZ form, quickly. How do I do this? I know I can do it by going to the IRS website, but I’m lost past that. Thanks!
A transcript is all you need, and that’s a lot faster than getting an actual copy, besides being free. You might run into a problem though, since they aren’t necessarily available yet for 2008 filing.

Question: I typed in the wrong account number when I submitted my taxes, will I get my refund back?
I was one number off and I checked the IRS “Where’s My Refund” website and it has already been deposited to the wrong account on 6 Feb 09, obviously not my account because I checked and it never got there. I used TaxActOnline.com, I still think they are awesome, after all, I made the mistake, not them. Will I be able to get my refund back? Anybody have any advice on what I should do? Or am I just stuck without a refund?
Answer: The direct deposit probably already bounced back to the IRS when they tried to deposit it into the wrong account because it obviously did not have your name on it. You need to contact the IRS and let them know and you will still be able to get your refund. It will take a little while though because they have to wait until your refund kicks back from the bank and then they can act on it and redo it, although they may have to mail you a paper check instead. I don’t think they let you change account numbers to correct your error over the phone due to security purposes so don’t count on another direct deposit. But probably in another week to 10 days you should get your refund after you have called them and explained the error to them.
EDIT: I just found this on the IRS site about refund inquiries…question #19—-
You omit a digit in the account or routing number of an account and the number does not pass IRS’ validation check, IRS will send you a paper check for the entire refund;
You incorrectly enter an account or routing number and your designated financial institution rejects and returns the deposit to IRS, IRS will issue a paper check for that portion of your refund; or
You incorrectly enter an account or routing number that belongs to someone else and your designated financial institution accepts the deposit, you must work directly with the respective financial institution to recover your funds.

News Update: IRS to no longer facilitate refund anticipation loans
Question: If my return was accepted, is it still possible to be having problems with the refund?
I have been reading the answers to some questions on here and people are saying that the reason some refunds were being delayed are because there are errors with the refunds. Also, something about possible problems with another stimulus or something. What I want to know is, if I have already recieved a confirmation letter from the IRS saying my tax return was accepted, can I still be having problems with it?
So, do they inform you that they found problems, or do they just assume you have psychic powers and know?
Answer: Yes, the acknowledgment just means the IRS has received your return, and there weren’t any glaring errors–like incorrect social security number, or two people claiming the same child. There are several reasons that the refund can be delayed for up to a week or two. One that I’ve seen is claiming earned income credit with zero withholding on your W-2. I’ve read that this year, if the rebate recovery credit (additional stimulus payment) that you claim is different from the one that the IRS had figured you would claim, a living person needs to look at the return to see who is correct. And that can take up to a week. I’m sure there are others.
If they can’t resolve the issue within a few weeks, they’ll let you know.
