What to do if STBX refuses to file taxes for 2016?

Unread postby truemort » Mon Mar 20, 2017 9:59 am

The STBX is refusing to file taxes for 2016.
What makes situation a little tricky is that we have an LLC / Partnership together as co-owners.
Yet STBX refuses to cooperate with this filing.

Any ideas? Filing was due March 15th. Each month that goes by a monetary penalty is applied to both of us...Any way to compell her to cooperate with the filing?

The LLC/Partnership is simply a pass through business name that both of our paychecks are routed thru because we are primarily 1099 consultants......of course, stbx is arguing this is a "real business" that needs valuation.....

Just a weird situation I didnt think about months back....

as a co-owner what prevents you from filing them?

Theres several areas where her signature is needed. I have all of her documentation but her signature is required.

There is a significant tax debt for 2016 and she is obviously trying in an act of desperation to distance herself from it in some last ditch attempt....

What does she need to sign exactly? How much of the llc do you own?

we are joint 50/50 owners...

Im filing a motion as we speak to compel her to maintain status quo and file jointly (along with some other things....)......she is trying to distance herself from the tax liability....along with just trying to make me jump thru hoops and be miserable..

You do not need her signature to file the partnership return.
