re: Help with state tax issue - Poodlebrain
File a non-resident return for Louisiana reporting zero Louisiana source income. Your W-2 should reflect a Texas mailing address, and you can demonstrate you lived in Texas with utility bills for 2015. You will eventually get all of the tax withheld for Louisiana refunded, but it will be an inconv...

re: Paying taxes on a gifted privately sold vehicle - Poodlebrain
The only time the IRS expects to see a gain from the sale of a vehicle is when the vehicle has been used in a trade or business, and depreciation has been claimed. Otherwise, the IRS works on the presumption that vehicle decline in value over time. The IRS will not even be aware of the sale until ...

re: UNC Coach Roy Williams has collapsed during timeout vs BC - Poodlebrain
Roy Williams exemplifies the win at all costs ethic. He can not claim ignorance of the academic shenanigans that took place at North Carolina. I realize some of his players were there as a conduit to the NBA, and I don't really have a problem that they were taking sham courses. But the other play...
