Warning: LONG POST!! - I haven't filed a tax return in 7 or 8 years, I owe around $20K from previous years, I have worked almost this entire time, I would be very grateful for some helpful advice!! (Currently in Arizona)

This is probably going to be a long post. I will plan on trying to do a Tl;dr after I finish it, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to do one properly. If some of you would be willing to take the time to read my entire post and try to offer me some help/advice, I would sincerely appreciate it.

Here's my situation: I currently owe the IRS around $20,000 (from taxes owed from between 2006 and 2011) and I have not filed a tax return in 7 or 8 years (since some time in 2011, I think), and I have worked almost this entire time. However, I was out of work and collecting unemployment for almost a full year (from around April of 2012 until around April of 2013). Before I was fired from my job, in March of 2012, I had been on a wage assignment agreement with the IRS for a few months, after they started garnishing my wages some time in 2011.

After I lost my job in March 2012, I was almost immediately approved for unemployment ($1,100 per month, the max. amount allowed in Florida, at the time), so I contacted the IRS and let them know that I was no longer working and they were very nice and helpful and put a hold on my wage garnishment. I ended up moving back to Arizona while I was unemployed and, fortunately/coincidentally, I started a new job in April of 2013, the same month that my unemployment benefits were set to expire. I ended up communicating with the IRS at this time, and let them know that I was about to start working again, after not working for around a full year, and, again, they were really nice and understating about it. They told me that they realized that I could still use some more time to get back on my feet, after returning to the workforce, so they were happy to give me some more time to try to get set financially and that they would continue to hold off on my wage assignment agreement for a while.

Well, this was back in April of 2013 - almost 6 years ago - and I have not paid anything extra towards that wage assignment agreement, nor have I filed a tax return during any of the past 7 years. I have, however, been employed this entire time (since April 2013) and have been paying taxes on my income; and I have been paying more taxes than I owe each year; so, my tax debt/amount owed should have gone down significantly over these past 6 years. Being that I have now not filed taxes in over 7 years, though, I have not known how to proceed, or even where to try to start, and the thought of trying to figure out what to do has been overwhelming. So, I have done almost nothing about my tax situation. Which, I know, is really stupid; but, my life has not been easy and I have just been trying to get through the tough times and not lose my mind in the process.

About 2 or 3 years ago, I did actually call the IRS again and had a long conversation with an agent, explaining my situation, and he mailed me my tax information (W2 papers, I believe) for the previous 8-9 years (if I recall correctly). I actually still have that envelope with the papers that the IRS sent me, but I have not even opened it. Yes, again, very stupid, I know; but I am apparently quite stupid sometimes, and I am scared about where to even try to being working towards resolving this matter.

Part of the reason that I haven't done more/anything about this tax situation, is because of something that likely nothing can be done about now (because of how much time has passed); and because of this, it is something that has angered and frustrated me tremendously. That thing is that I likely should not have owed the majority of the $20K in back taxes that I owe, because they were from casino jackpot winnings - which I gambled and lost back 100% of. I was a compulsive gambler, so I, literally, always, lost back 100% of my winnings; along with much/most of my income for 19 years of my life. And because I have put off filing my tax returns for years at a time, I have almost surely lost the eligibility of filing an amended tax return for any of the tax years that I owe back taxes for (2006-2011) and claiming my losses to offset my jackpot winnings.

So, before I forget, I do specifically want to ask, what is the maximum amount of time allowed to be able to file an amended tax return? Being that it is now January of 2019, what is the last year that I might be eligible to file an amended tax return for? My guess is that the amended return cutoff is later than 2011, which will likely do me little/no good. If, at all, possible, I would really like to be able to claim my gambling losses against my jackpot winnings, but I'm afraid that I have now missed out on that opportunity, because too many years have elapsed.

So, assuming that nothing can be done about the years of 2006-2011 (particularly, because I already filed tax returns for those years), how should I proceed now? Obviously, I need to file tax returns for each of the past 7 years (2012 to 2018), but, how, and where, should I begin?

Also, for the past 2 years and 6 months, I have had a long, brutal work commute (76 miles each way, through massive/steep mountains, costing me about $15-$20 per day in fuel costs), but (foolishly) I only started keeping my gas receipts about a year ago. Could I even try to claim my a tax deduction for my mileage/fuel costs for the past 2-plus years? Or could I only claim a deduction for the receipts that I have? I have no idea how much/how significant a tax deduction fuel costs/mileage may help me get, but my commute has already ruined a vehicle (a blown head gasket on my 2001 Honda Accord, that hasn't started since) and spending $15-$20 a day just to drive to and from work is miserable and frustrating, to put it mildly. Not to mention, is stressful and exhausting. And coupled with the $20,000 that I owe in back taxes, I am looking for any and help/deductions I can get.

And with regards to the year and-a-half that I was commuting 150 miles per day, but not saving my gas receipts, could I just show the date my employment at my present employer started, and that my address has been the same since before then, and be eligible for some sort of estimate of travel mileage/fuel costs? Or will I need gas receipts for everything I'm trying to claim a deduction for?

OK, I think I'm actually going to try to finish this now. I am seriously sorry for writing such a lengthy post. And if anyone has actually read my entire post and would be willing to try to help me with some advice, information and/or suggestions, please know that it would be genuinely appreciated!!

One more thing. If anyone who reads this is actually in Arizona and might want to try to meet with me in person (if I am allowed to mention this) and look over my paperwork with me, I would be open to that. For the record, I live in Payson and work in Scottsdale, so I would be open to meeting anywhere within reason, as this is something that has been affecting my life for over a decade now and is something that I would really, genuinely like to try to get resolved. So that, maybe, I can actually start getting some back at the beginning of the year again!

P.S. Seriously, I'm sorry for writing so much!! And, someone, please help me!!

Edit: I wanted to mention that I have currently not gambled in over 5 years, since October 4th, 2013. So, 5 years, 3 months and 14 days, in case anyone is curious about that. I have legitimately and truly tried to change my life for the better, as I have a 19 year-old son, a 21 year-old daughter and a 7 month-old grandson and that is what has kept me going through the truly difficult times. So, if someone does actually read my post and decides to try to help me, please know that your time and efforts will not be wasted, nor taken for granted!!

Edit 2: Also, for the record, I hate myself for being a compulsive gambler for 19 years; for all of the money I wasted and the hard times I put my family through, because of my choice to gamble. I lost so much more money than I won that it sickens me to think about it, literally. I have so much guilt and regret, that have been such a heavy burden on me, that it has literally affected my quality of life for over 20 years now. Stress headaches, fatigue, missing work, numerous humiliating situations, a credit score below 500 for most of the past two decades, and almost-constant struggles, all that have made life to be no fun many times over the years. I have left the casino crying, said absolutely horrible things and had horrible thoughts, lost a job, and have ruined years of my life and my family's lives, because of the losses I endured from my gambling. I have literally not ever done an illegal drug, I didn't get drunk until my 21st birthday and haven't ever been much of a drinker, and, other than trying a few times as a kid, I haven't smoked or chewed tobacco; so I think that's why gambling had such a hold on me for so many years. For me, it was like a drug, and it was most definitely an addiction. So, I want to make it clear that I recognize that I was responsible for most of my problems and that I have paid a very high price because of the choices I made. Maybe, no one gives a shit about this; but I felt like sharing it, as it's something that I still think about often and is something that I thought might help inspire someone to want to try to help me get out of the mess I currently find myself in with the IRS.

March 05, 2018 - MPX Signs Definitive Agreement to Expand Its Footprint in Arizona -
  • “This acquisition represents a solid addition to our industry and presence in Arizona, a State that offers MPX one of the best-regulated, yet industry-supportive markets in the country,” said W. Scott Boyes, MPX’s Chairman, President and CEO. “The entities being acquired have recorded trailing 12-month revenues of US$15 million and EBITDA of approximately US$3.5 million and its results will be immediately accretive to MPX earnings. Furthermore, the acquired companies are well-managed and will allow both parties to share best practises and benefit from the ability to share purchase economies. With the pending opening of our Apache Junction dispensary, the addition of the Holistic Center, will bring the number of dispensaries managed by MPX in the greater Phoenix market to four, will more than double our cultivation capacity and will materially complement our management team in the State. Adding to our critical mass of operations, this acquisition will add to MPX’s ability to benefit from purchasing economies, spread the administrative overhead costs over a larger revenue base and provide cash flows to support additional growth.”

  • Beth Stavola, COO and President of MPX’s U.S. operations, adds “With our fourth dispensary opening soon in the Apache Junction suburb and our expanded concentrate production facilities coming on-stream this month, we expect to see our Arizona revenues continue to expand over the next several fiscal quarters. The Arizona program is well-regulated by AZDHS, the patient count continues to grow, the supply and cost of flower and trim for re-sale and concentrate production is excellent and, while the Phoenix area market is increasingly competitive, retail prices and margins remain attractive. This is a great state for MPX to conduct business in.”
April 09, 2018 - MPX Adds a Fourth Dispensary in Phoenix and Triples Capacity for MPX Concentrate Production in Arizona

  • MPX Bioceutical Corporation (the “Company” or “MPX”) (CSE:MPX) (OTC:MPXEF) today announced that the Company, through its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, S8 Management, LLC (“S8 Management”), is entering into a management agreement (the “Management Agreement”) with LMS Wellness, Benefit LLC (“LMS”) which will result in MPX building and managing a full service medical cannabis dispensary in the White Marsh suburb of Baltimore, Maryland.
Photo caption: A medical marijuana company has signed a lease for the space at 4909 Fairmont Ave., next to the mural.
A medical marijuana dispensary is coming to a long-dormant space on Fairmont Avenue in downtown Bethesda.
Rich Greenberg, of Greenhill Capital, which owns the building, said Budding Rose LLC signed the lease for the roughly 1,900-square-foot space about six months ago. He said work is ongoing to fit out the interior to meet the dispensary’s needs, and he wasn’t sure when the shop would be ready to open.
The management agreements with Budding Rose and Rosebud will result in MPX subsidiaries now operating three medical cannabis enterprises in the State of Maryland. The first management agreement with LMS Wellness, Benefit LLC was announced on December 12, 2017. Rosebud is one of only 14 licenses issued to process cannabis derivatives in the State of Maryland. The facility is completely built-out and when fully operational will be capable of producing 825,000 grams of MPX-branded cannabis concentrates per annum.
Budding Rose will operate a dispensary in a high-traffic area of downtown Bethesda, Maryland, in close proximity to the Walter Reed Military Medical Center and National Institutes of Health. Bethesda, Maryland is located within the Capital Beltway and is one of the wealthiest communities in the Capital Region. The dispensary is currently under construction and is expected to be operational in late February of this year.
GreenMart will operate a dispensary, under the “Health for Life” brand, in a high-traffic area of Baltimore, Maryland, situated off of North Point Road in the community of Colgate.

Keep in mind they're in only four states right now and currently operating in two. There are other U.S operators with multi-state footprints (IAN, CRZ, LHS, MRMD, etc.).
A few private players:
*1) Acreage Holdings - 11 States,
*2) Columbia Care - 9 States + D.C and Puerto Rico,
*3) Green Thumb Industries (GTI) - 5 States,
*4) Cresco Labs - 4 States.
Also, there are the other companies with agreements/operations in both the U.S. and Canada (CRZ, SNN).
Once their RTO (April 30, 2018) is completed, MedMen will have the highest addressable market of the publicly traded U.S. operators (CA - 39.5 million, NY - 19.8 million, NV - 2.9 million, Canada - 35 million through their JV with Cronos). Not too mention the number of visitors each of those markets get annually.
That being said, of the current public companies, I think they give good multi-state exposure in the U.S. in markets with high population density]( This doesn't even factoring their Canadian exposure once they get operating. We'll see where they stand in the U.S. market if they're able to execute on the Massachusetts, Maryland, and Canadian operations. Also, remember they're pushing the MPX concentrates brand and are set to get exposure on both coasts.
I can't speak on their capital structure or financials. Some other users can discuss that.

When your man doesn't ride (first 2,200 mile solo trip)

Hey moto fam! Big thanks to everyone who commented and recommended routes and stops through the Southwest. Planned this trip over 1 month, and definitely used your advice out there. So, thank you. Especially IllIII!! Right off the bat, I’d like to provide you with a quick TL;DR link to some trip flicks.
I covered 2,200 miles over 7 days of riding around Arizona, California, and Nevada. It was a great way to start the new year. This map is neither complete nor 100% correct, but it's the best Google would let me produce. Gives an idea of the ground covered. Odometer view by the end of it all. And yes, the title is a little misleading as most of my girls ride, but I really wanted this to be a solo adventure without a dude on the back of my bike.
Day 1: 200+ miles. Phoenix (Tempe to Glendale) to Tucson (Mt. Lemmon). Rented a Dyna via EagleRider and set out to ride around Phoenix before heading to Tucson on the 10. Loved the bike from the get go, as it was absurdly comfortable on the highway. Got to Tucson and headed up Mt. Lemmon (so cold by the top!) before sunset. Felt like every minute further was a degree colder. Checked into a B&B I’ll recommend to you all: Jeremiah Inn. Don’t worry, I switch to Motel 6 & 8 by Day 3, guys.
Day 2: 150+ miles. Tucson (Mini Time Machine, San Xavier Mission, Saguaro NP) to Globe. Set out to the museum (I’m @dailymini, so it was fitting) then right to San Xavier for a walkthrough inside (avoided the tour) and right on up to Saguaro NP (Kinney and Bopp so I could send some love to combichristo’s fam). Beautiful park, not a lot of cars on the road. Headed up 77 North to 60 and settled in Globe for the night. Highly recommend this B&B converted from a schoolhouse. My room was massive. Headed out for dinner and when I tried to navigate back to my hotel, kept finding myself on top of hills and on dead ends. Recent construction made the routing hard, and had one close call on the edge of a little cliff and on to a 5MPH rock (huge rocks) road into someone’s backyard junkyard. Sorry about my 5 minute U turn on your property, sir.
Day 3: 300+ miles. Globe to Payson to Sedona to Jerome to Prescott to Wickenburg. Woke up to a delicious breakfast and took 60 to 188 N passed Tonto NP and Roosevelt Lake. Pretty sure a Mexican Wolf ran in front of my bike, but maybe it was an enormous coyote… Continued from 188 to 87 to 260. The ride through 3 NPs (Tonto, Coconino, Prescott) was breathtaking. And cold. So many different landscapes, I couldn’t wrap my head around it. Cacti to snow-laden forests, to rich green forests, to red rocks. It was absolutely unreal. 10/10 would ride again. Headed to 89A and arrived in Sedona. Super touristy, tons of traffic with all the roundabouts, so cruised down the bike (bicycle) lane and hopped no hippie cop would pull me over. Success. As soon as I saw signs for 89A, I was so excited to take it down. Absolutely phenomenal route. Can’t wait to do it on a sportier bike I can throw around a bit more. Jerome was also quite touristy, and super hilly. Be aware if you’re afraid of heights! Continued down 89A from Jerome to Prescott and saw one of the most amazing sites on a moto ride, the split mountain roads in Yarnell. Couldn’t fathom what I was seeing, and riding through! Can anyone share a photo so I can put it up at my desk to day dream?? 10/10 would ride again. Made it to Wickenburg for the night, cute town.
Day 4: 400+ miles. Wickenburg to Vegas (Lake Mead, Hoover Dam) to Death Valley. Woke up and thought, I have 2 options today, cruise around Arizona or just go full force into this trip and attempt Death Valley before the end of the day. So glad I chose the latter. Left Wickenburg to take 93 north up to Nevada (did I miss a sign for Nothing, AZ? Didn’t see any markers). Passed through Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, on to Vegas and continued on 160 to Pahrump. Filled up my tank (wishing I had a spare can with me) and went on Bell Vista Rd into Death Valley at around 2 PM. Little concerned about losing the sun and running out of gas, but I went in as far as mileage would allow and took a ride up to Dante’s View. My phone either froze or just had an iOs fail, because it wouldn’t turn on when I got there. In need of a selfie and furious at the timing, charged it up on the bike and had some fellow tourists snap a pic of me. Got back to a casino hotel for a smoker’s buffet (gross) and sent out some “Happy New Years!” to east coast buds before passing out before midnight.
Day 5: 350+ miles. Pahrump to Oatman to Lake Havasu City to Quartzsite. Headed to Oatman to see some donkeys and check out Route 66. Nice ride. Continued on 95S down to LHC and the ever-so-lovely Havasu Springs near the Colorado River. Knew I wanted to shop the gem show in Quartzsite for souvenirs (let me live), so I wound up there for the night.
Day 6: 400+ miles. Quartzsite to Joshua Tree to Carefree (Horseshoe Dam). Woke up and felt the weight of my trip coming to an end, so pushed for a long day. Mostly highway, took the 10 to JT NP for a quick loop. Roadrunner ran across my path, so awkward. Highways some more, took the 10 to 60 to 74 so I could check out Carefree and Cave Creek. Per recommendations, took it down to where pavement meets dirt, and wrapped up the night in Phoenix.
Day 7: 300+ miles. Phoenix (Usery Mountain Regional Park, Tortilla Flats) to Gila Bend to Phoenix. The trip coming to an end, headed to Usery Pass/N Bush/Ellsworth to see if I could find any of the Salt River wild horses. Coyote or fox ran across my path, just a little guy. Then, it was time for Tortilla Flats. So beautiful. So glad I did this ride. Yes, the road was shitty and it felt like a broken carnival ride, but so worth the pay out at the end (THAT VIEW!!!) The ride back was a little quicker, knowing what the lil twisties were all about. Stopped at a swap meet to see some friends and then it was on to Gila Bend for the last of it. Rode 10 down to 85 for a scoot through farmland with enough straightaways to take my first few moto selfies. Bird flew into my helmet, not sure if he made it. Looped back the same way and ended up in Glendale for the night.
Day 8: 50+ miles. Phoenix. Saddest day ever. Looked for some miniatures and took her back to EagleRider. So much of the trip was themed “no one in front of me, no one behind me” because I really did have the roads and views to myself. Highly recommend Arizona as a moto getaway and looking forward to coming back soon.
THAT'S A WRAP! Thanks again for making it here, and yes, the same TL;DR for you fine wheeled fam.

Arizona Bucket-list. What would you go see?

Recently I met a seventy-three year old man who had lived in New Jersey all his life until two years ago when he moved here. The state and all it's natural diversity amazes him, having only seen the east coast, some of the south and some of the mid-west. He is sort of on a quest to collect as many memories as he can while still physically able to do so. I have lived here all my life and so between myself, one of his children, and his retired friends who also live here we are visiting as many points of interest as possible. I tried to make a list of all the places he has been to but I would love to hear any other suggestions as we are starting to struggle to find day trips in and around the valley. Here is what I can remember: Superstitions and Peralta Trail Goldfield Ghost town Apache trail, Canyon, Roosevelt, and Apache Lakes Tortilla Flat and Fish Creek Globe and Besh-ba-Gowah archaeological park Tonto National Monument Saguaro Lake and kayaking the Lower Salt River All of the Indian Casinos in or near the valley All of the major shopping centers in the valley Cardinals and ASU football games To the top of Lone Pine Saddle on Four Peaks Box Canyon and the middle Gila Sedona, Oak Creek, and the Pink Jeep Tours Payson and surrounding forest Tonto Natural Bridge State Park Flagstaff and the South Rim of the Grand Canyon Canyon de Chelly, Monument Valley, and Petrified Forest Montezuma's Castle and Well The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show Casa Grande National Monument Mesa Grande archaeological site in Phx The Heard Museum Papago park, Phoenix Zoo, and The Desert Botanical Gardens The Arizona Science Center and Museum in downtown Phoenix Museums in Downtown Mesa and Gilbert The Ray mine overlook Az Copper Corridor Scenic Highway (S.R. 77) Target shooting on the Tonto National Forest Historical buildings in the town of Florence Fountain Hills and Cave Creek Art Shows
I'm sure there is more but this is all I can remember. So Redditors what would you suggest? Day trips are more doable like the Air and Space Museum in Tucson but we are also planning a trip up to Hopi to see some dances on a two day trip.
