Tax Center opening soon at Camp Humphreys

By Capt. Pearl J. Kim
Tax Center OIC

CAMP HUMPHREYS – The 2013 U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys Tax Center opens for business on Jan. 24.

The hours of operation will be: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday, Wednesday and Friday; Tuesday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; and 1 to 4:30 p.m. on Thursdays.

The standard deadline for filing the 2012 Federal Tax Return is April 15. Most members of the Camp Humphreys community, however, are eligible for a filing extension. To use this extension, a statement must be attached to the return showing the filer meets the requirements and file a Form 4868. The Tax Center staff will be able to help filers through this process.

Army policy permits tax preparation for eligible clients, which are active duty military members, retirees, civilian employees and their eligible family members. When coming for an appointment, the following should be brought:

ID for eligibility
Social Security Number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN)
Assignment letter for you, your spouse, and dependents
Bank routing numbers and account numbers for Direct Deposit
Source of Income to include: W-2s, 1099s, 1098s
Total paid for daycare provider and the daycare provider’s tax identifying number
Proof of foreign status, if applying for ITIN
Power of Attorney (if applicable)
Birth dates for you, your spouse and dependents on the tax return
Separation or Divorce Papers
Last year’s tax return
Anything else you think is related to your taxes

The Tax Center staff will help filers prepare and e-file using forms 1040 EZ, 1040A or 1040 with most applicable Schedules and Credit worksheets. The staff cannot, however, prepare complicated Schedule Ds or Schedule Cs (with the exception of Family Childcare Provider).

If a filer’s state of residency collects income tax, those state forms will also be prepared and e-filed, with some exceptions. Tax Center personnel can also help filers prepare a W-7 to apply for an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN).

For those who have questions or would like more information, contact the Camp Humphreys Consolidated Legal Center, at 753-6245 or stop by Bldg.S-734, or starting Jan. 24, 753-5680 or at Bldg. 751.

Unfortunately the Federal statutes over-ride the state law @ this time. You can thank your politicians for this.

Question by Stealthfire: Ideal jobs to get in the field of law?
I’m interested in the law field and thought about becoming a lawyer, but heard so many bad reviews about how it’s impossible to find a job and the crushing debt that comes with graduating law school, so I have turned away from that idea.

So I am curious what good jobs I should think about such as becoming a paralegal (suggested by answerers) and court reporter. If you would suggest either of those and have things to say about them, that’s fine too.

Thanks in advance!

Question by iggysbills: Do I Have to Respond to a Medical Questionnaire from a Subrogation Law Firm?
My health insurance provider mailed me a questionnaire regarding a treatment I received for a back injury. It was a check-box form and wanted to know if my injury was auto related, slip and fall, work injury. They wanted details and wanted me to send the form to a law firm. No where in the letter did it state that I had to respond in order to maintain coverage.

I did not respond. Today I received the same questionnaire directly from the law firm. Again, it did not state that I had to reply only that it appreciated my cooperation.

Am I legally or otherwise contractually bound to respond? Will I be dropped if I do not respond. I do now feel comfortable providing my medical information to a law firm, to me this is akin to ambulance chasing. I could find no clause in my insurance contract saying that I was obligated to respond. Before I contact them or this law firm, I am looking for any and all help. Thank you.

I guess you have to . . . Normally medical insurance firms will ask questions about your health which they say is necessary . . . So i guess you have to . .

Question by Zach Sewell: What legal form would a business such a recruitment company looking for employees for other business be? Help!?
http://www.inc.com/articles/2003/09/legal.html (my friend and I are looking to branch off from the staffing company we work for and build our own company as recruiters that looks for employees to hire for business and am in need of a little guidance in the initial phase)

Sole Proprietorship

Partnership

Limited Liability Company (LLC)

“S” Corporation

“C” Corporation

Best answer:

Answer by Jim S
If your friend is to be “part of the company”, you cannot be a “Sole Proprietorship”.

The other forms of organization really require careful thought and are a decision reached after careful consideration of your (individual) personal assets that might need protecting, your anticipated net income for this new venture, and consideration of any other sources income you might have.

It’s really best to have this explained by a competent CPA. You’ll spend $ 200-$ 300 for a meaningful consultation, and if she does your books and taxes for you, possibly less. It really is a good value – a mistake now will cost much, much more than that later.
