Need some tax advice

My husband passed away in late 2014 and he had a couple of credit cards and at that thime those companies told me at the time I was NOT responsible for repaying because I was not a co-signer. Now i have received 1099's showing those written-off balances as income. Because we were married, do I have to claim those write-offs as income? Really need a tax professional or lawyer to weigh in on this. Thanks!

  • dj long time RP home owner

    An update. One fact I inadvertently omitted was that those 1099's were addressed to my late husband (he died 2 1/2 yrs ago). There was no estate, no assets to distribute. I consulted my lawyer and he said that since they were addressed to my late husband to ignore them, but to hold on to them.

    you got the advantages of those purchases - the least you can do is pay the income taxes. the vendor gets stiffed - but the taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for your enjoyment of your husbands purchases. He was your partner and you agreed to "for better or worse". You filed jointly -so you pay jointly.

Thanks!

Loud bass cars a health hazzard to everyone and nearby motorist.

3:30 pm 5.3.14 and driving at touhy and western a 1997 brown GMC yukon with tinted window was blaring his aftermarket woofer at the stop sign that my car is shaking and can't hear my own stereo inside the car. After that short stop, I feel like I'm underwater or at high elevation and have loss my hearing. It's 9:17 pm now and my ear is still aching. Police should stop these people. That guy should pay for medical checkup that I may need. Can you stop people with loud annoying bass from driving?

Who Opposes Affordable Housing?

Additional affordable housing has been proposed for Rogers Park but the local Chamber of Commerce opposes it. The Chamber's secretary, an alternative priest who preaches in in an Elmhurst Masonic Lodge and has a postal address near Gary, Indiana, speaks against affordable Rogers Park housing and calls the Alderman a "concubine of big box interests." https://www.facebook.com/bishop.wilkowski Why is the local chamber being supported by outside religious interests and opposing affordable housing in Rogers Park? Shouldn't the chamber support commerce and not oppose it? Has the local chamber gone roque?

Electrical issues & rolling brown outs today

Has anyone else experiencing electrical issues today with lights flickering on and off?

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Yes. Perhaps the wind is causing it.

  • rlynn ackerman NE Rogers Park resident since 1956

    A phone call to ComEd yesterday confirmed that the flickering lights were due to high winds. Call them any time you have a problem.

If he was chipped the could use GPS to find him. Should be standard practice for dementia. This comment has been removed by EveryBlock staff because it has been repeatedly reported.

  • maybe it's because of the way you wrote your comment, without any detail about what you meant. It sounded like you were disparagingly equating dementia patients with pets. The idea of implanting chips in human beings is controversial, even though there have been some experiments. But there are numerous rfid tracking devices these people can wear, like ankle braclets.
    In any case, everyone has comments removed here, for good or iffy reasons. It's not worth stewing over it.

    Being rickrolled by everyblock's poor self moderation is part of the game here. Ohh just imagine the nonsense you go through here when you don't have a gold star by your name ...

  • Wazzup not available

    you would think the moderators would get the idea they are needing some training on how to properly moderate -

    the implanted GPS has some merit for those that could become lost - I remember a demented Grandmother who wondered outside without clothes - took a while for the police to match the missing report - a GPS device would have identified her right off.

    sometimes blog members do have good ideas and moderators are just plain wrong.

Dolting Accusations Of Conterfiet

Neighborhood store once a victim of brutal robbery now accuses $20 bill holdets of conterfiet .
The pkace NEXT to Luzzat has accused us of using a FAKE $20 bill.
We stated if tjats the case the federal government myst be called.
We also asked if the owner was drunk as he seemed to forget what the issue was.
Were offended as we were the 1st to help tjem when tjey were brutally robbed.

  • The guys at Eastview are great. Asking him if he was drunk was probably confusing to him. He doesn't drink. Maybe some language barrier. If a business accepts counterfeit money the bank will confiscate & the business loses.
    However, buying your ice cream elsewhere sounds like a great solution to all involved.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Sandy, the guys at Eastview would probably be glad if the advice in your final sentence were followed.

Keep it local please.

Keep it local please. There are plenty of places to discuss national and international politics. Let's keep discussions here to the neighborhood. Thanks!

  • Jarvis John Trump WINS.. Again!!

    We have enough to discuss locally. Lots of corruption nearby.

  • Is the "Lots of corruption nearby" ^^ just another Alternative Fact or faith-based belief with no evidence? Good Grief we are getting more of those than we need from the White House on a daily basis. We don't need more in Rogers Park JJ. I respect your right to believe anything you want but governmental decisions and social policy have to be based on more than that or we'd still be wearing strands of garlic around our necks to protect against vampires and were-wolves.

  • Give the Donald a break. Maybe he's still trying to figure things out. For example, it's well documented that he called Hillary Clinton a "nasty woman", "crooked" and “the worst secretary of state" among other insulting names.

    Give the Donald a break. Maybe he's still trying to figure things out. For example, it's well documented that he called Hillary Clinton a "nasty woman", "crooked" and “the worst secretary of state" among other insulting names. But then, at Friday's inaugural lunch in Statuary Hall, the Donald publicly stated that he was honored by the Clinton's attendance and said “I have a lot of respect for those two people". Was he lying again? If so which were the lies? Does he think that Hillary a crooked nasty woman or does the Donald honored by her presence and respects her? Or is the former television host and entertainer still trying to figure out a new job?

  • Manticore, would you be happy if Hillary was president right now?
