I know. You are not a tax attorney. You are not my accountant. etc.
The girlfriend has been out of work since last December (13 mos ago) so her only income has been unemployment. Also last year, she filed chapter 7 to get out of all of her debts including car and house.
What will her tax liability be?
Also, I expect to have the Dept of Education give me a $17,500 student loan forgiveness this year for being a math teacher. Will I have to pay tax on it since it is from the feds? I assume so since a decade ago I had some unimproved land foreclosed upon and was taxed on the foreclosure amount (so they take the asset yet I still pay taxes?)
