Q. How can you do a deed in lieu of Foreclosure if your home was included in a ch.7 bankruptcy?
A: Even if the home was surrendered to the lender in the bankruptcy, you may still be on the title. Offering a deed-in-lieu allows the lender to change title ownership without a foreclosure judgment. That option is very helpful, and is certainly allowable.
Q. state taxes are not being taken out of my paycheck.
A: It is only your employer's job to withhold tax and pay the funds over to the government, per your state version of the W-4 Form. It is not the employer's responsibility to pay your liability. Here is a somewhat related article, for another W-2 reporting situation: https://www.stopirsproblem.com/tax-attorney-il-blog/irs-tax-attorney-naperville/they-sent-1099-not-w2-form/
Q. Selling sister's condo, profit of $65K, she is a missionary in Peru how can she avoid taxes until return in few years?
A: It is possible that she qualifies for exclusion of capital gain on that sale. It sounds like she could avoid all of the estimated $65K in gain under Tax Code Section 121(c), as long as she sells before she is out of the home for about 4.5 years. The opportunity is much more challenged after that. However, there is possibly another opportunity for her to take a full exclusion of all gain, applying IRC Subsections 121(c) and 121(d)(12), because her work is much like that of the Peace Corps, which also has a special exception. I would consider planning a sales based upon the assumption that the tax can be excluded, if the timing of the sale meets the exceptions mentioned above.
