    Is My Stipend Taxable?

    Question: I am going to be the ‘house dad’ for a fraternity at a university where I’ll also be a graduate student. I am supposed to handle basic operations of the chapter house and safeguard property. In return I am given $800 a month and free room and board.  Because this is a tax-exempt fraternal organization, what tax liability will I have?

    –William Huddleston, Columbia, Mo.

    Is My Wife on the Hook for Taxes I Owe?

    Question: I was married in July of this year. I owe back taxes but my wife does not. We plan to file separate tax returns. I know the IRS will apply any refund I may get towards my balance. Will my wife’s refund be affected?

    –Lawton Fox, Turlock, Calif.

    What Does Same-Sex Marriage Mean For My Taxes?

    Question: I live in New York State, where the Marriage Equality Act just passed. Unlike domestic partnerships (which I currently have in order to get my partner on my company’s health plan), marriage opens up a world of financial issues that are further complicated since the federal government doesn’t recognize same-sex marriages. Would my partner’s credit history now affect mine? Would I no longer be taxed on the value of his health benefits through my job (along with post-tax deduction of benefit contributions, it cost me about $4,000 a year)? And what about filing jointly or separately? What are the other issues that this creates? I don’t even know what to ask my attorney or accountant.

    How Long Should I Keep Financial Paperwork?

    Question: How long should I keep financial paperwork, like bank statements, tax returns or even medical documents?

    Can I Deduct Losses From Cancelled Work?

    Question: I’m an independent contractor that works for an NBA team. With their current labor situation [the professional basketball league locked out it players in July when its collective bargaining agreement expired], if games aren’t played, I don’t get paid. Can I use those games that I’m not getting paid, through no fault of my own, as a business loss tax deduction?

    -Carson Belkin, San Antonio, Texas
