Finally, taxation ... If you have any doubt on how to handle your taxes, contact a qualified tax expert ... opinions don't count when it comes to the IRS.

Here is an official registry site from the IRS to find one near you who would be qualified to be sure you do it correctly. It's not the answer that matters - it's how your tax return is prepared that matters since it's the return the IRS will use to say it is right or wrong!
