Ask a CPA: Selling a House and Tax Deductions

My wife and I lived in a home for more than 10 years. In August of 2014, we moved out and put it into service as a rental. We intend to sell the house when our current tenants move out (their lease is up at the end of August of 2015, but we’ve told them they can move out earlier if they want and they’ve indicated that they may).

Dear CPA…

Ask a CPA: My Client is Dodging Questions About Taxes, Help!

I am a freelance writer and one of my regular clients will not answer my questions about taxes. He pays me in checks, and while it seems on the up-and-up, I know I’m making enough from his company to report it (I made around $2,000 from him in 2014 and expect to make around $7,000 this year). With someone else, I might simply stop working for them, but we’ve known each other for years. I like him as a person, and respect him in many ways. I don’t want to offend him and I also don’t want to lose him as a client.
