Federal Taxes: Filing Returns for Past Unpaid Taxes

I received a $190,000 of a $300,000 settlement from a car accident in 2003. I was told this was not taxable. I've had multiple surgeries and it still effects me today. I took 50k and invested in stock through Scottrade and 3k into a Roth IRA. I was going through a really bad time and let a lot of stuff go. I drained the accounts in 2005 I think. I never filed taxes on any of it. The IRS has never contacted me regarding this. The state of Missouri did file a tax lien on me 8-10 years ago for 11k....

Panic mode.

I would have thought that with President Trump threatening to declare an emergency and use executive power to build his wall that people would be careful about using the word "emergency," but I just ran into this headline in The New York Times: The BuzzFeed Layoffs as Democratic Emergency Digital media has always been a turbulent business, but last week’s layoffs suggest a reason for panic.  By  Farhad Manjoo Opinion Columnist [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

"His book is in love with the toothsomeness of language... 'Hyphenated vulgarities,' such as blow-job, 'are comically dainty'..."

"... Dreyer says. Novels can 'shimmy.' Parentheses have elbows. The author’s delight in his tool kit is palpable, as when he enthuses about ending a sentence shaped like a question with a period rather than a question mark. ('It makes a statement, doesn’t it.') Defending the semicolon, Dreyer quotes at length the opening of 'The Haunting of Hill House,' by Shirley Jackson, breathlessly celebrating the passage’s 'tightly woven, almost claustrophobic ideas . . . a paragraph that grabs you by the h...

Empirical SCOTUS: Looking back to assess the potential future of oral arguments

Over the past several years the Supreme Court has undergone substantial change. Not only has the face of the court shifted, but so has its center, with the departure of Justice Anthony Kennedy. Oral arguments offer the only vantage point into the interactions and dynamics between the justices and provide some context for how they might vote, along with possible voting coalitions. Through this lens we can get a sense of how these changes affected existing and newly appointed justices. This situat...
