I took care of my elderly father for about 3 months after he suffered from spinal stenosis and lost the use of both legs. He is walking now after cortisone injections and months of physical therapy. When he first returned home, he was in a wheel chair and couldn't really do anything for himself for most of that time. It was a very difficult time, and I suffered business losses and depression.
The thanks I got from my family, brother and uncle who is CPA and did my father's taxes, was to claimed me as a dependent on my father's tax return for the time I spent caring for my father in his home. Anyone ever hear of such imbecilic people?
The IRS won't give me any information, other than to send in an identity theft form. I guess I need an attorney. Are there any organizations that can help me?
