Client Testimonials

Gary,

I would like to thank you for your time in helping me with this issue of tackling the exclusion of my 1099-C income from this years taxes. The Form 982 that the IRS makes you file is very confusing and makes you want to beat you into submission however with your guidance I was able to quickly and easily get through it and on top of that exclude 100% of the cancellation. I will suggest your site and assistance to anyone and everyone.

Sincerely,

Keith, CPA from CT

Retirement CPA discusses Elders Losing Home through Tax Lien Sales

The National Consumer Law Center published an eye-opening 56 page report on how elderly and impoverished folks lose their homes through tax lien sales.

  • Step One: a municipality establishes a tax lien on the home. The report cites an unpaid $362 water bill in Baltimore escalating into a foreclosure. A similar example cites a $474 sewer bill in Rhode Island ending in the same result.
  • Step 2: the tax lien goes un-paid.
  • Step 3: the municipalities sells the tax lien to investors.
  • Step 4: the investors demand a huge return on their investment, or;
  • Step 5: the investor seizes the house.

The report states that many laws about the process are old and don’t  reflect the current foreclosure conditions. It cites corrupt officials, predatory late night TV commercials, and sleazy banks. Overall, current regs allow investors to avoid full disclosure to homeowners about how they can redeem the situation.

As a Retirement CPA, I often see documents that aren’t formatted to be readily understood. Plus, my Dad’s mail box fills with what I consider deceptive advertising. Even from companies that have ethical reputations.
