    Printing 2018 Tax Returns

    One sided here and financial institutions want PAPER. We closed on a rental property this past summer and YOU SHOULD SEE THE PAPER!
  2. At least they have finally given us a filing date. Will it hold water and will the software be ready?
  3. Sara could have been reading my mind when she wrote her post. My reply is "all of the above". In 40 years I have never felt so inadequate and unprofessional. Confusion is rampant. I don't feel ready even though I, too, have been studying and attending classes. I have many printouts, but it appears that some of the issues we need to address this year have not even been fully enacted. Even the instructors are unable to instruct. Let's hope that we can get through this together and with each others help.

    Merry Happy

    Catherine, you said it all for those of us who wish to extend Greetings.
  5. So many questions are rolling in. Do I know the answers? Not always. My classes are late this year and will be held on December 2 and 3. I did order "Tax Planning for Individuals" 2018 Edition from Quickfinder and it has been a tremendous help. I did consider hanging it up, but this is too much of a challenge to miss out. Also, financial security is always an issue. We purchased a rental house in July. I just want to wish all of you the best of the best of tax seasons. Also, Happy Holidays to all.

    2018 tax software

    I had to call support because I was locked out of My ATX. Very nice and patient gentleman fixed it for me and I was able to download easily. You can expect a few quirks at the beginning; expecially with the triple password system.

    ATX main computer and laptop

    Jack, as you know, I am not networked. Have no issues with rollovers on the laptop. The main thing is that she exports to the jump drive and I import it into my desktop. That is my preference as she is not and probably never will be able to take a return from beginning to end. Has been working well for 3 years now. Her data entry is quite precise and seldom do I have to fix anything. Again, two heads are better than one.

    ATX main computer and laptop

    I have the same situation. Not networked, but one installation on my desktop and two on laptops. I used the installation code that they gave me and installed on the laptop quite easily. At first, I was locked out of my account. It has always been my preference not to network. My assistant works on the stand alone laptop; saves her work to a jump drive and I can then import her work into my desktop and finish and file it. Works great!

    Obviously I have been gone too long. I will have to relearn this site.

    I believe the early applications were for preparers who were going for the AFSP. I applied with no issues.

    June 23 Get Together / Shameless Plug

    My husband and sons will be in TX that week so I get to mind the store. Also, the date is halfway between my BD on the 21st and my 58th Anniversary on the 25th. I'll be waiting for pictures.

    2015 Form 1040X - has not received check yet

    I just had a 1040X for 2016 receive their check yesterday.
  14. Personally, I automatically save return every few minutes to a jump drive, so that doesn't concern me so much. Then, weekly during tax season, back up entire drive to an external drive. My Guru just cleaned up my computer inside and out so I rather feel that I am ahead of the game. I think I am finished ordering supplies and the program install went smoothly. I have nothing to complain about....YET.
  15. Actually I received those books months ago and had forgotten about them. I gave the Tax Book to my assistant to take home. I was happy to receive the all states book because I only order that once every three years or so and that has worked out well. I have not had any issues with downloading the new program and the updates are going well. So far, I have seen only improvements and have nothing to complain about......YET!
