Taxes are due next Tuesday, April 17th, and we've been getting you ready all month with useless tax tips from our intern Alan. Here are some of our favorites, but don't get us wrong. Just because this is the "best of dumb tax advice" does not mean this is the "best" tax advice.
As tax advice goes, it is terrible.
"What advice would you give someone who is a first time filer?"
"Should you file your taxes online or by mail?"
"Is there an age limit on claiming my child as a dependent?"
"How would taxes work if we are a married couple where I, the stay at home wife with no income, live in Canada, whereas my sole breadwinner hubby lives in the U.S.?"
"My babysitter refused to provide me with her social security number. Can I still claim the amount I paid to the babysitter for childcare while I worked? If so, how do I claim these child care expenses on my tax return?"
"I purchased stock from my employer under an employee stock purchase plan. Now I have received a Form 1099-B from selling it. How do I report this?"
