To whomever is reading this…Thank you for taking time to read my story!
I received a big letter from the Irs this last week saying I owed my kids earned income credit back plus with interest from tax year 2017. I just about fainted & still can’t believe this to be true! They said because I don’t have any paperwork (business record) to prove it then I owe! My bank account only goes back a year and a half. Plus, any records I had in paper were ruined (when our family moved last year) due to moving truck had holes in roof & leaked water into truck into all our belongings.
Some personal history of our family…my hubby had a back surgery done over a decade ago that went wrong & left him disabled. He receives ssdi because of that. It’s not enough income for a family of six. So I do my part to try to get some other money into our household each year doing odd jobs in the community we live in. I have to be close to home for my hubby. He can get depressed if I’m gone to long plus needs help with daily needs like meals, meds & doc appointments. I have never lied to Irs & have always put down the money our family receives each year in our income tax. So therefore, I count it as self employed person for myself on taxes.
This last year in June 2018, our family decided to move from Idaho to Ohio to be closer to family & warmer weather for my hubby’s back. He found someone to help him with receiving meds but slowly over time, she changed his medications & added some that eventually was hurting my hubby’s health. His kidneys were shutting down & almost died in front of us & the Emt that came & sent him to a group of people that saved him!!! He was in the hospital for days being pumped full of fluids. He was so confused & did my best thru docs advice to keep him there or else he would die! I tell you that I’ve had some hard days in my life but this one day really took the cake! My hubby is my everything & a wonderful daddy to our kids! So we changed health facilities for a better chance of helping my hubby health get better.
So we have had a few bad bumps in the road this last year. Now I have this from Irs & just don’t know how to repay $5400 that I feel I don’t owe. But they don’t have any proof so therefore I’m stuck with a hefty bill that I can’t pay.
Looking for a miracle Angel if there is any out there?
Thank you so much for reading my story & please say a prayer that we will get thru this challenge.
