So for various reasons I have not done my taxes in 3 years, my wife’s mother does and she agreed to do mine as well but then my wife and I had a falling out with her family and my mother in-law who had my tax information W2s, 1099s ect. refuses to give them to me and may have destroyed them. I cant do my 2014 taxes without them.
What can I do? Can she be criminally charged for destroying federal tax docs?
You are responsible for these documents, how is she getting the documents, do you give them to her or is she stealing your mail. Either way, you need to request duplicates, just ask each employer to provide one. But…
st, you would be wise to check now with the IRS if there has been a return filed for past years in question (see irs.gov on procedure to do this).
