  1. One of the *nastiest* tax seasons in recent memory, and we lived through it. Congratulations, all. Now we can start working on amended returns, non-filers, and get ready for the non-filers who outed themselves to the IRS with the EIP payment returns. Whimper.

  2. And, payroll reports. I need to read about CT's new myconneCT and set up an account and make it work with QBDT for my tiny payroll. Except for the tax types not yet open under myconneCT that still must be paid via Taxpayer Service Center. And, PPP forgiveness applications. And, laundry. And, my NY/CT-ATP on-demand courses for September and October. And, a few other on-demand courses I haven't completed. And, sleep. And, visit my grandkids before they forget who I am! And,...

  4. grumble...mumble..... I guess I figured it would be easy to go online and set up and be done. We'll wait. My client was great about it. He filed and paid in March last year - 2019 for the 2018 return, and IRS sent him a notice that he didn't pay. So he figures even if he pays on time it gets screwed up anyways.

  5. Received this email from my client: "I have an important tax question; I over donated to my pre tax dependent care account at work. I have had almost $3,900 deducted from my paycheck since 1/1/20. When Covid began, I removed my daughter from daycare but did not cancel or change my paycheck deduction at work until 10/1/20. I only spent approximately $2,500 at daycare and can provide receipt for that. I haven’t done the exact math, but I have over donated by about $1500. My question is this; my mother has provided daycare for my daughter regularly since 6/4/20. Is there a way that I can le

  6. At this point, if it's not a lot of money, I'd just wait two weeks for the PIN.

  7. but we have to wait for the super secret PIN to come via snail mail. Why they can't just email it to you or give you a pop up screen to print when you get it - like when you get your EIN.

  9. I've heard some tax preparers guessing that the e-file shutdown date will be about 21 November, because that's the last day for online non-filers' filing for an EIP.

  10. If you just need 5 more days, change one letter of the first four letters of the last name and transmit it tomorrow. It will reject and you'll have 5 days to correct and not be considered late. I've done this at least 3 times in the past and I think one of my coworkers is doing it this year.

  11. Yes, the returns will just be filed late. IRS MeF will accept the current and prior 2 years (2019, 2018, 2017) up through the date of shutdown that occurs sometime in mid- to late-November. When e-file reopens in Jan 2021, you will be able to file returns for 2020, 2019, and 2018 at that point.
