    Renewing this month?

    Once I was driving in NYC and came to a street where the cars blocking me had the right of way. I stopped and waited but cars kept coming. Finally I decided to risk everything and try to cross. The cars all stopped and I got through. I got to a hotel in Brooklyn that had a parking lot and stayed there--took the subway everywhere I had ti go from then on.

    advice on $15 payment for $848 bill?!

    Yes I got a check from the county treasurer which the people I sued paid to the county. I started to sue a non-paying client once. I had my daughter, who is an attorney, send them a letter, but decided it would be more trouble than it was worth to go to court with them.

    When I was in the Air Force there was a base regulation about how to hang toilet paper. I was to roll over the top.

    Sell EFX short.
  10. If it weren't for those ethics courses I would lie, cheat and steal--and claim an EIC on every return. But after taking ethics courses, I now know that isn't ethical

    Selling Business

    I retired at age 83 since I didn't want to die with lot of unfinished returns. Now I sometimes miss it, but don't have to keep up with all of the changing rules. Besides, my brain might deteriorate.

    Once someone asked me how much I charged. I gave him an estimate and he said "That's pretty steep. Last year I only paid $15." I recommended that he stick to that highly qualified tax preparer.
