  1. Thanks. I've been under the weather for some two weeks with a pinched nerve but thought this was how I handled one some years back.
  2. A client who prefers getting a check for her refunds moved and gave me a slightly incorrect address for her return. The result is the Post Office returned it to the Service. Can I efile this to them or does it need to be mailed ?
  3. I have kept my fees fairly stable over a number of years but raised a bunch this year. I sorta regretted it but am still recovering from the season and now realize that going forward I am going to be forced by age to downsize anyway. I enjoy the work but have finally reached a physical limit and must make adjustments if I plan to go forward. I am long past the point of needing the money but I like being occupied.
  4. I should have known ole eagle eye would notice that. efile cb efile.
  5. I had to pull some credit card statements for 2021. Normally ATX charges for any email overages in a timely manner. It does appear they missed a couple. I never receive a bill from them as they are authorized to deduct the $5.00 or so which my card folks advise me of. I don't have any email charges for this year so the charge comes from 2021 for TY 2020. Hey ILLMAS can I get a loan ?
  6. I have just received an email from ATX listing a charge which I don't owe. On checking my account it is listed as undefined. The only additional charge I ever owe is when I exceed the fixed efile limit and they were fully paid last year. A call to accounts receivable department advised they would get back in 48 hours or so. Has anyone else received anything like this. Normally I pay in full on reordering my software in May and if any additional fees are due for any efiles they are promptly paid. I surely hope this does not presage any problems in this regard.
  7. Well I have egg on my face. On close examination of the invoice I see my price is 12% less than the list price. Even so it is 10.5 % more which is a significant increase over past years. I want be in the business but for so much longer as the steady grind of working three months each and every day has finally begun to tax this ole bird a bit too much. Going forward I will likely increase all clients a small fixed dollar amount which they likely will not gripe about.
  8. That was my thought as well having seen no few of my older clients totally escape tax on long term gains. She will in all likelihood do just that.
  9. I checked my figures from like five years and this year will be the largest increase I can recall. It would have been in line if that 10% was taken off. I'm going to set back and bide my time. They offered no discount and increased the year over year 10.5%.
  10. I failed to notice last year that my usual 10% discount had taken a hike. This years increase looks to be in line with prior years. I may wait and see but I doubt I will receive a call from any rep. Still since one of us got a 20% discount in December it does give you pause. Wish the ole Saber roar was back. $75.00 per year them were the days !
  11. They will likely do their thing and then sell to Intuit or maybe even WK. Our number of choices available seems to shrink every year or so.
  12. Does the ATX program sort out the 1250 gain ? If the 1250 gain is taxed at ordinary rates she is in the 10% bracket which is even lower than the 15% capital gain rate. I've got plenty of time on this so I will need to review it thoroughly. The house is not in good condition and sits on ten acres which will need to be segregated out. The land will likely compose most of the sale.
  13. I received a letter in the mail. I normally renew online but noticed this year no discount and looking back no discount last year. I'll contact my sales rep whoever that will be and talk this over a bit.
  14. You have likely just got a taste of what is going to happen.
  15. I usually renew in May. The software is my largest cost but comes in at a reasonable cost when broken down per return. I raised my fees this year and received few complaints in no small part because everything else is exploding. My business is slowly being impacted by all the FREE tax stuff supported by no less than our local banks and just about everyone else. I have been able to keep my annual fee income fairly stable for a number of years and this year introduced a new lower fee for all these younger folks who have found free file a problem. I note that many of our local tax preps have folded and we face competition from all those cheating filers out there. I got one from a guy I knew thirty years ago since he had covid. He did not file any efiles and I soon found out why. No signature on the client return. He was cheating back then and still is.
