  1. I'm in very rural PA (as in I have no visible neighbors) and my pricing is similar to yours. Obviously I would love to get more for a basic return, but given where my office is and there are two other accountants in "town" with similar pricing, I just cant.
  2. I was looking at the ProSeries Choice 200 as an alternative to ATX. I understand this is for new customers only. Could you tell me what are they telling you about renewal? I'm looking at alternatives as ATX is getting out of hand, but I don't want to be looking again next year.
  3. I've had multiple returns stuck at "transmitted to agency" for the state return. The federal are accepted. Are these considered filed on time?
  4. She claims she doesn't know whose number that is. I am an accountant, but not a CPA or an EA I thought this was fishy too. The weird thing is they want her to call them at that time. What happens if she doesn't call them....
  5. New Client received this letter from the IRS. It has her name and address correct, but that's not the last four of her social security number. The second page has 2 years listed that had no filed returns(because she only had social security those years). Our concern is, is this legit when they don't even have the correct social on it. Does she call and say that's not my number and then scammers have her real number? I'm so leary of fraud anymore. Has anyone else seen where they set up a time for you to call them? Anything I've seen had everything done back and forth in writing. Advice?
  6. I can do that. I just thought it was weird they were asking for that when they would have received the federal copy of the 1099 and should also have social security on file. It seemed weird they would ask for info they should have already, when they are understaffed.
  7. Has anyone had a client get a letter from the IRS that asked for proof of withholding.? The only income they have is a pension and social security. Both have federal taxes withheld, but wouldn't the IRS already have the amount on their end?
  8. I can see what you're saying here. Makes you want to use the whole mileage, but I would still be inclined to forgo a home office deduction. I've been digging but there doesn't seem to be any case giving a definitive answer.
  9. Thanks guys. I was inclined to ignore the commuting miles to first and from last pickup until I read this (attached) from a "tax advisor" and started second guessing myself. I had already told her no commuting mileage and I'm not venturing into a home office with her when all she's doing is answering her phone there.
  10. This is her only job. It's a rural area so she doesn't go anywhere unless she gets a notification from the app. Once she accepts the job, she leaves home and goes to pickup/deliver whatever. She doesnt really have an office, she's just using her phone to get notices.
  11. I understand that the client can use the standard mileage rate when working for these companies. My question is, does that start when they leave home or when they pick up the food/ passenger? I have read a lot and am getting both versions of this depending on who wrote the article. Some consider the mileage to the pickup as commuting others say the diver has no permanent place of work, so mileage to the pickup counts. Thoughts...
  12. I've been thinking of switching software, the price for ATX Max is just getting out of hand for my business size and that 95.00 processing fee to download software is beyond ridiculous! . I have about 160 paid returns and a couple of partnerships. Does anyone have experience with other software and care to offer pros and cons? I have an email from Drake and I understand a lot of people like them once they get on to their system. Any others...
  13. Thank You so much! I was using Fixed assets to remove it from Dep Sch.
  14. I filled out the sale of personal residence on the fixed asset tab. Why would I use 8949, wouldn't that put it on here twice?
