  1. Yes, thanks! This has been very informative.
  2. Well, . Good thing it's still sitting here! Thanks!
  3. Small business taxpayer. A small business taxpayer is not subject to the section 163(j) limitation and is generally not required to file Form 8990. A small business taxpayer is a taxpayer that is not a tax shelter (as defined in section 448(d)(3)) and has average annual gross receipts of $25 million or less for the 3 prior tax years under the gross receipts test of section 448(c). A pass-through entity that is a small business taxpayer does not allocate excess taxable income, excess business interest income, or excess business interest to its owners.
  4. When 17 was filed, taxpayer had not yet decided if they wanted to leave it as a nondeductible or convert it to Roth. Unfortunately, they also had other traditional IRAs, so a good portion of the conversion ended up being taxable, and they still have nondeductible basis left.
  5. You can add a note to any field with Ctrl+T. Or use right-click menu or Edit menu.
  6. https://www.accountingtoday.com/news/irs-expands-underpayment-and-underwithholding-relief-for-more-taxpayers-to-80-threshold?feed=00000158-20c2-d6a2-adfb-70eb85460000
  7. I had to override several fields on the 8606 for a nondeductible 2017 IRA being recharacterized to a Roth. The 1099-R was code R but nothing was showing on the 8606. I just plowed through and hope I didn't do something wrong.
  8. Carbonite doesn't backup ATX's default file locations. We use CrashPlanPro.
  9. The K1 would show a gain and a distribution. but the step-up in basis would increase the worthless stock loss, so yes, you are correct.
  10. Darn, I was hoping they could file as a threesome.
  11. The only problem with efaxes is you learn to hate people who fax upside down.
  12. Me too. I came in most days but only got 1 or 2 returns done each day. You can't make that time up!
  13. We double duty our 2nd line as a fax line. We don't answer line 2 unless it's a rollover and we know it's not a fax. We can actually receive a fax on both of our lines, which is helpful when clients dial the wrong number. Both lines forward to efax if we don't answer.
  14. Paper faxes? Or does it save to PDF?
  15. But I didn't take any money out of the brokerage account so it's not income, right?
  16. With the new higher standard deduction, this is becoming more routine for us.
  17. It doesn't have an option to just save the PDF to your computer? Seems odd that it has to be emailed.
  18. My efax number is long distance, but people just call my local number and if I don't answer (or if all lines are busy), it forwards to my efax number which can handle both voice mail and faxes. I got a special price because the service I was with (MaxEmail) got bought out by efax. I think I'm paying 64/yr. There's nothing out there that I've seen in that price range.
  19. I've had the IRS ask if I had the fax machine nearby so it was secure. I just lie and say yes. It's a little awkward when they ask if the fax is coming through and I have to go check my efax site. I just put them on hold. But I've had zero success with the IRS faxing me anything. My phone doesn't even ring. They end up mailing it to me every time.
  20. The 8919 also saves the employee one half of the SE tax.
  21. Let 'em rip. I did and they all went through. The hung ones said they were at EFC which is ATX.
  22. What kind of trust was it? What happened to the trust at date of death, if anything.
  23. If shareholder has wages from S corp, enter wages on the appropriate line of the worksheet.
  24. Acks are flowing like sweet, sweet wine!
