Joint Return Taxation Assignment Help with Solutions online

Problem 1

Sansa and Ramsay (husband and wife) timely filed a joint return for 2008. During 2008, Ramsay terminated his employment with Bolt King, Inc. for which he had worked for fifteen years and started up a speaking business. Upon leaving, Ramsay received a distribution from the corporation’s retirement plan in the amount of $200,000. This distribution went into Ramsay’s personal account. Although Sansa knew that Ramsay had received a distribution from the retirement plan, Ramsay never told her the exact amount. Ramsay used $125,000 of this amount to pay off the mortgage on their home which was held in joint names.
 
On their joint return for 2008, Ramsay included the entire distribution in income and reported the 10% penalty. However, despite telling Sansa he was going to pay the $75,000 balance due on the tax return from the retirement fund distribution, Ramsay used the remaining $75,000 of the retirement plan distribution in his business and to support his involvement with his bevvy of paramours. All subsequent balance due notices from the IRS were intercepted by Ramsay, so Sansa did not know there was a tax problem.
Ramsay and Sansa’s marriage ended after Ramsay’s relationship became known. The divorce was granted in November 2009. Sansa was awarded title to the family home and Ramsay got the business. The decree stated that Ramsay was solely responsible for all tax liabilities for all years prior to 2009.
 
In December 2009, the IRS sent Ramsay and Sansa notices of the $85,000 balance due ($75,000 tax and $10,000 penalties and interest) for 2008 and offered them a collection due process hearing by issuing a collection due process notice. This was the first time Sansa learned of the outstanding tax. During your Exam Period (i.e., the day you read this), she comes to you for help.
 
Thoroughly assess Sansa’s options, including details about what, if anything, she will need to demonstrate. DO NOT DISCUSS ANY PROCEDURAL OR SUBSTANTIVE ISSUES WITH RESPECT TO COLLECTION DUE PROCESS
