    I have a NYC ? on sale of real property

    The NYC taxes are reported on page 3 of the IT-201. https://www.tax.ny.gov/pdf/2014/inc/it201_2014_fill_in.pdf

    New Form 1040

    $30 paid up-front before we'll re-print and mail. Gee, when they go back to look they never call back.... As for multi pages - MA went to four pages last year. Was only two not too long ago. Only the *middle* third has any info. Total tax at the bottom of page 3 info; withheld tax at top of page 4 info. Impossible to compare without flipping pages. Grrr!

    New Form 1040

    Clients lose any paper you give them. I charge $20 for replacement copies of tax returns. That seems to be the tipping point to motivate people to look...

    Only a few of my clients want digital copies. I wish that all of them did, but I may try to push it more because of the incredible waste of paper for the coming years.

    I push for digital copy only every year but on a small percentage take it. So I print maybe 25 pages out of 100 page return and include a CD with the return and records for every year they've been a client.

    Certainly no eco friendly! Which leads me to question how many of us still print returns for all of our clients and how many ask if they want a digital copy instead. I think I am pushing the digital!!

    My basic state return went from 2 pages to 5 and was mindbogglingly stupid the way they spread everything out. I simply don't understand how this is superior or eco friendly.

    The right registry hacks can really improve the user experience... well, for a computer nerd like me, anyway. Or you can use a tool like Ultimate Windows Tweaker to make the hacks for you. It has an option to backup the registry and create a restore point.

    Amen. I don't know enough to dare to tread in there.

    Can't find a fix for signature printing

    If you aren't e-filing, make sure that the "PIN" and "EF" screens aren't included. The client's signature is generated from the "PIN" screen for S corps. For your signature to be printed on the return, exit out of the return and on the main Drake screen, go to the Setup drop-down menu and open the Preparer(s) setup. Open by double clicking on the preparer for yourself that shows the PTIN #, not the ADMIN one. ON the next box that opens, you should see a checkbox on the right side that says "Alternative Electronic Signature". Check the box to print your signature on the forms, and then click on SAVE at top left of that box. This is a global setting, so any returns you print while this is checked will have your signature printed.

    Can't find a fix for signature printing

    Ok, I am so new to this and the solution is probably right in front of my face, but I have a 2016 S Corp that I am trying to finish. My client is not able to e-file it because she is currently working with a Revenue Officer and she wants all returns hand delivered. Everything is set to go except I noticed that it is printing the clients signature. How do I get the printed signature off? Also I want my signature to be printed, how do I set this up? I have spent the whole morning trying to figure this out. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    New Form 1040

    I printed a test page. This will be my 37th year in 2019. In my wildest dreams I would never have thought the Service would sqush (this is the Southern form of squash you Yankees !) the Form 1040 on a half full page. Maybe as Abby suggests we can add some snappy add on the bottom.

    New Form 1040

    In my test print 1040 page 1 half page,1040 page 2 half page, schedule 1, 3/4 page, schedule 4 almost 1/2 page, schedule 6, 1/4 page. I was hoping ATX would combine a bunch of this into 1 page. This is assuming that you are not duplexing. It would seem to me the keep pricing up where it needs to be the more pages a client sees the happier he is.

    I'm going to see if I can get some advertisers to pay for ads in all of that blank space.

    New Form 1040

    I was going to point that out Abby but Catherine beat me to it. And Taxman are you saying the 1040 is not going to fill a full sheet. Good grief. It sounds kinda naked.

    New Form 1040

    I test printed a return yesterday. Half pages, third pages 6 schedules. What a waste of paper. My cohort said same amount of toner just more paper. Add in QBI worksheets and forms more pages. I agree no new ones this year. Just my 2 cents

    Well, Abby, you may enjoy playing with fire - and you may be experienced enough to handle it. I've done it myself, on occasion. But I would NEVER advise someone who hasn't been down in the trenches to attempt it without a full registry backup plus restore point. A couple extra minutes before diving in, so that you can edit away without fear of permanently mucking up your machine, is very cheap insurance; doubly so for a registry-edit newbie.

    Would it help to write a letter stating these facts? Domicile actually in China/India/Timbuktu/New Zealand/whatever, uses brother's address as a convenience due to difficulties in receiving mail at legal residence. Any proofs of same (details from FEI form, pay statements from Acme of India Pvt Ltd, Wile E Coyote CEO, scan of envelope for electric bill from Christchurch Electric Power, other) to placate Illinois. However, if this guy really has a *domicile* in Illinois (rather than merely a mail drop), then you have to look at what the state will tax.

    In some ways, it always *does* - this is just going to suck in new and different ways.

    New Form 1040

    ATX isn't putting multiple schedules on one page?! I was hoping they'd give an option to print both 1040 pages on one page. This is really going to suck, isn't it?

    New Form 1040

    Page 1 does have the check box for Preparer as 3rd Party Designee in the bottom right corner of the Paid Preparer Use Only section at the bottom of page 1, right above the Self-employed check box. Schedule 6 has Third Party Designee info for a non-preparer, such as an adult child for an aging parent. All the schedules are designed to print 8.5 X 11. Of course, the two "postcards" will have to print 8.5 X 11 also!

    IL income tax is based on Federal AGI, if by any chance there was some AGI in 2013, the state of IL is one of those states that communicates with the IRS.

    Illinois resident, tax on foreign income

    Can't help you with Illinois, but I have a client who is domiciled in CA, lives and works in China. Every year we file a CA return because CA does not conform to Foreign Income Exclusion and CA taxes worldwide income earned by domiciled residents of the state. $0 Federal Tax. Check to CA every year. Tom Modesto, CA
