    Thank you RitaB...what a wonderful day

    Awwww, you all are the best! I enjoyed the day so much, and we were honored to host. Edsel and Posse, thank you for bragging on the kids! They and Donna (Posse) did as much as I did to make it happen. Here's two pictures from May: First one: David, Me, Karsyn & Allie, Daniel, and Erin. Daniel won the marriage lottery when he got Allie. Best daughter-in-law ever. Second picture is Karsyn modeling what you SHOULD wear to Walmart.

    Gail, no need to bring anything. I'm borrowing tables and chairs from church.

    June 23 Get Together / Shameless Plug

    Bahahahaha, hey, now! LOL. Yeah, I have no clue about Pandora. She's probably not a tax pro. Lunch is pulled pork, Cincinnati chili, side dishes and 100 deserts. (Give or take.) I do have a couple folks asking about church. Would love to have you at mine on Sunday. Services are at 9:00 and 10:45. We have Bible School the week before, so I'll check with Sam to see if the kids are doing the service or if he's preaching. Link below. http://www.cumberlandfellowship.com/new-folder/

    Thanks, Margaret, I'll chop some onions! I will have soft drinks, tea, hard lemonade. Tubs of ice. Feel free to bring whatever other beverages you like and we'll have room for it.
  6. Just wanted to run a commercial and encourage anyone who is on the fence about coming to please join us. We're meeting at my house in middle TN on June 23 at 2:00. We'll eat soon after that so don't eat lunch first. Bring family - my kids will be there and we'll play corn hole, visit, and have a great time. May be able to fish and pedal boat if the hay is off the field. Stay as long as you like - we can have hot dogs and s'mores for supper. Send me a message and let me know you're coming and how many you're bringing. I will send you directions. Can't wait to see you!

    Amending an H&R Block return...

    Some days I just open my mouth to change feet.

    Amending an H&R Block return...

    This is the client you have to remind to tell you when they sell or trade an asset. And why they have no basis in the asset. But I get what you're saying I think. I woke wondering why I think you can't take Section 179 after the due date and discovered that I was thinking about the olden days. Or perhaps pulled that out of my left ear. Which is exactly why I cannot do tax returns with the client present. I would have a heart attack the next day. Oh, and I would WALK 18 miles to make $5,000. Or give it to a good dentist. All day, every day, uphill, barefoot, in the snow, both ways.

    Amending an H&R Block return...

    Well, I hate all the misspellings and wrong description, but I'm very conservative with depreciation. Is #4 is the only math change? I get that it should be three years instead of seven, but I have a hard time taking Section 179 or Bonus Depreciation. (Actually I never take Bonus Depreciation). I guess a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, but what if the deduction would be more beneficial in the future? OTOH, there's also a lot to be said for a great first impression, and nobody knows the future, so cheers. I got four new clients this past season from a preparer with three initials (and they weren't HRB), and she used Bonus Depreciation on all assets, every year, even one where the people already had a loss on Sch C. In my opinion, she really did a disservice to the one with a loss. No savings at all on SE tax. Yes, I know she just let the software choose the default.

    1040X for client that came back

    Yes. That's where I was trying to go and wound up deleting four comments because I couldn't get there. I can never think of everything at the right time. I also don't doubt for one minute that combining amounts in Col A has worked out ok for @DANRVAN.
  13. Nope, I had no idea. So sorry. I will remove the post.
  14. Yes, I tried it with line 10, too. If you override that line, the amount does not get added to Line 29. How about just fixing the formula for Line 29 to what it should logically be (and has been prior to this year)? Line 4 + Line 9 + Line 15 + Line 19 + Line 20 + Line 27 + Line 28 = Line 29
  15. Got my first letter where Sch A did not calculate properly. I did an override on real estate tax, line 6. Line 9 was correct, but the amount on line 6 didn't make it to line 29. Thankfully, this is a great client. He was very gracious about it, mentioned he bought hearing aides that he forgot to tell me about. I will amend his return free gratis to show the additional medical expense, using the IRS adjusted numbers. It hurts me to type "IRS adjusted numbers". I think I'll have to leave early and regroup. #H8Form8283AndIRSAdjustedNumbers
