thanks again



Your tax liability is huge unless you can prove you made so little money that you didn't have to file. Taxes, penalties, interest, jail..... Also, if you put the money in a joint account, mom can take it all. Get your own account.

This is not legal advice and you are not my client. Double check everything with your own attorney and your state's laws.
