  • Could I claim my grandmother as my dependent and not get charged any of her medical bills?

    My grandmother has been a resident of the US for 5 years now, because of her medical conditions, it is to expensive to pay for health insurance. If I claim her as my dependent, and god forbid something happens, will I have to pay her medical bills because she is my dependent? My grandmother has been living with me for 2 years now, and I did not put her on my taxes last year but considering it this year.

  • Health insurance and tax deductions?

    Hello, my question is about health care deduction. My wife and I own a business which is an LLC partnership and she also works as a travel nurse. The two are not related. In 2018 starting in March she put me on her insurance through that company she worked for. Every month her company took the full payment of $918 of which $513 was my part, out of her check. Then I wrote her a check for $513 every month. She stopped working starting September but we wanted insurance and through Cobra we could keep the sane coverage. But from then on we sent the full payment directly to Cobra as my wife wasn’t employed with any company anymore. My question is, which if any of the insurance payments are tax deductible? Her company said that the payments they took out of her check while she was employed are pre tax and none of it tax deductible. Which I don’t fully understand why at least my payments are not deductible. But what about the full payments we made after she wasn’t employed and we payed directly to Cobra? Thank you.

  • Would a long term nursing home take my savings?

    We married when I was 47yrs old and he was 60. He is retired off the railroad for 6 yrs now, and I still work full time. I decided to buy health insurance for him thru my employer. He had to stay in a nursing home for 6 weeks recently and the insurance paid the bill. Ive saved in a 401K when I wasn't really able to save. I have a lot of money saved. He hasn't saved a dime. Im worried if he lands in a nursing home, they will take all my savings to pay for his care and leave me with nothing. Can they do that?

    so I work at a pawn shop with my boss and other coworker. just the 3 of us. This past week, my boss missed work on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday because of a "headache"... the store wasn't open because he didn't "feel comfertable having someone else run his store for him". About a month ago, I scheduled to have this Saturday (March 23rd) off for my God sons baptism... My boss called me up to tell me I HAD to be at work on Saturday because we're so behind... it's not my fault you missed 4 days of work for a headache!! Why should I miss my God sons baptism to be there for work?? I scheduled off a month ago! Now he's saying that if I'm not at work on s aturday, he's firing me.. is this right? Any advice? I've worked there for 7 months and this is only my 2nd time requesting off!

  • Is it legal?

    My landlord always comes to collect money without a receipt book, I've had her filling in a receipt book that i bought myself so that it shows that payments have been made and even though i keep hold of the book i plan to give it to her once i decide to leave.

  • My boss won’t let me take time off ever. What can I do?

    I’ve been a receptionist for the past two years - so I’ve accumulated a lot of pto and my boss will not let me take personal time ever. If I do want to take personal time, she has to know exactly what I’m doing and exactly what time I’ll be back and I have to let her know well in advance. Or she’ll ask me if this “appointment” (it’s usually an interview so I can get out of this company) was scheduled a few weeks ago and why I’m now just telling her about it. For example, on my daughters last day of 4th grade last year, they had a half day. My husband and I wanted to do something fun with her to celebrate. I asked my boss on Monday of that week if I could take a half day to go out with them. My boss told me no even though I had the time to take. So frustrating... lesson learned in that situation was to not tell my boss what I’m doing or tell her I have an appointment - that’s the only time she’ll let me take time off. I understand that I’m a receptionist and it’s hard to find coverage but I’m entitled to my own pto. Is this something I can report to hr?

  • Is Veterinarian a good career?

    I'm 18 years old in 12th grade and my dad is a doctor and makes $250k per year and she also wants me to make a doctor but I hate people, they are evil and hurt animals, I don't want to help people, I want to help the innocent creatures (animals). I really hate people and it's the reason why I started training martial arts 2 years ago so no one will mess with me. My dad said that a vet lives on a low payment and it's not a good career and I should go for medicine. What's your opinion?

  • Can my landlord change the locks and charge me for it (not being evicted, not a repair)?

    The landlord has not long from changed the locks as they was broken, the guy who changed the locks said he will give a set to estate agents so we do t have to. Anyway we get a letter from estate agents demanding a set for front and back door. They said they have not received any and the guy who changed locks can't remember saying it. We was walking past the other and had front door key on us so got it cut for them. Today I received a phone call from them, demanding a back door key by tomorrow or the locks are getting changed and we will be charged for it.

  • Cousin moves boyfriend in... Should rent be split 3 ways or should I move?

    The original plan was for me and my cousin to be roommates but my name isn’t on the lease... Later she found out she was pregnant and decided to keep it. I was ok with that decision until she asked if she could move her boyfriend in and that we would split the rent 3 ways and he was transferring his job. A few weeks later, he moves in and no sign of a job so I’m left with questions. I finally asked and she said that she told me we would split the rent 3 ways before even asking him and that he feels like her half of the rent should be split between them because they share a room and bathroom. Would I be wrong if I moved out and/or since we have a verbal agreement and text messages saying that I would split rent should I get a lawyer?

  • How to deal with new job?

    So I started a new job two months ago in an industry that I'm really interested in. However, there are already miscommunications with my manager, and she kinda belittles me. She'll always claim that she has told me something, but did not at all. For instance, recently we got a request to work on a project for another client. At first she asked me to create a sample template, which I did. But once I showed it to her, she said she "likes what I did" but she had another thought in mind. Then decided to show me her template, and said this is how we're going to do it. OK, no problem, but then why ask me to create a template...? Then she gives me instructions on what to do - I'll work on 3 int'l regions and she'll work on 4, and its due on Friday. I even repeated the instructions to her, and she said "yes that's correct." Between yesterday and today, I've been running into technical issues - and I kept asking her and our team for help/suggestions. And yesterday I even had to work on another report + join a 1 1/2 hour client call. So towards the end of today, she sends me a message asking how far along am I because another team mate is struggling with another project. I said its a bit difficult since everything is in another language. She then walks up to me and says I should've done it in another language, and also she told me twice that I'm supposed to work on ALL 7 regions. I said I don't recall her ever telling me that, and that's when she pulls me out the room.
