I NEED HELP OR THE IRS WILL TAKE MY DISABILITY INTILL THE PAYMENTS ARE THROUGH

missmybabies started this conversation

I RECENTLY GOT DIVORCED IN MARCH, I AM LIVING OFF OF 563.OO DOLLARS A MONTH DUE TO BE ON DISABILITY FROM LOSING THREE OF MY CHILDREN, TWO IN PREGNANCY AND TAKING MY SON OFF OF LIFE SUPPORT WHEN HE WAS THREE MONTHS AND 23 DAYS OLD. HE WAS TAKING OFF DECEMBER 26, 2006. I BECAME REALLY DEPRESSED, TRIED TO KILL MYSELF, MY HUSBAND CHOOSE TO LEAVE AND NOT BE THERE FOR ME. ON THE DAY OF MY SON'SONE YEAR OF TAKING HIM OFF LIFE SUPPORT MY EX HUSBAND WAS WITH HIS SISTER INSTEAD OF ME.WHEN HE GOT DIVORCED HE TOOK EVERYTHING FROM ME. WE HAD A BUISNESS THAT WE STARTED TOGETHER, I DID NOT GET HALF. WHENI SAY HE GOT EVERYTHING HE DID. I COULD NOT AFFORD A LAWYER AND THATS WHY WE PRETTY MUCH GOT EVERYTHING. WHEN WE DID OUR TAXES IN 2006 MY EX HUSBAND MESSED THEM UP, NOW THREE YEARS LATER THEY CAME AFTER US SAYING WE OWED THEM MONEY. IN 2006 I DID NOT WORK BECAUSE I WAS HIGH RISH PREGNANCY AND I SPENT EVERY DAY IN THE NICU WITH MY SON. JIMMY PUT IN THE DIVORSE DECREE THAT I WOULD HAVET TO PAY HALF KNOWING THAT ALL I MAKE IS 563.00 FROM DISABILITY. I HAVE NO MONEY TO PAY THIS, MY HALF OF THE TOTAL IS 1300.OO DOLLARS. I AM SO AFRAID THAT I AM GONNA GET IN TROUBLE AND THAT THE IRS WILL TAKE MY DISABILITY FROM ME FROM NOT BEING ABLE TO PAY THEM 1300.00. WHAT I AM ASKING FOR IS HELP. . I WILL BE SURE TO PAY IT FORWARD WITH LOVE AND COMPASSION FOR OTHERS. 

 IF YOU COULD SEND ANYTHING I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT. THANKS SO MUCH,

Greetings,

 

They will not take your SSI, although what they may end up doing it garnishing so much each month until it is paid off. I am on disability and when I was with my husband they did a review and I was told I was over paid almost a 1000 dollars. So what they did is took 67.50 a month out of my check until it is paid back. I have like four more months before I get the entire amount back. Call your SSI office, and explain to them what happen, where you are money wise and see if they can work with you to either you send in a monthly payment, or have a percentage taken from your check like they do mine. If you decide to make the monthly payment you have to make sure you send it in every month. Other wise they can decide to take up to 10 percent of what you are getting. If you try a monthly payment thing, you can send anything between 5 to 10 percent a month. Good luck and hope things work out for you. I am in the same situaltion you are, my husband took everything, and until he files papers *I can not afford to* they will keep taking his income into consideration and I will be the one who suffers cause they will keep taking money from my check.

 My thoughts are with you and I hope you get this resolved.

Most lawyers offer free initial consultation. Talk to them about this. As far as I know, the IRS cannot take you off disability. The IRS & Social Security are 2 seperate agencies. You are getting disability from being disabled which has nothing to do with you owing a debt. But, do talk to an attorney to verify.

Now, the IRS can garnish your bank accounts.

You can call them & ask for a payment plan. They will send you paperwork, make sure to do the plan in 'writiing'. You can offer to make small payments, what you feel is affordable & see if they will agree to it. Usually, they will work with you.

I hope this helps.
