  1. Those calculations left the Total Tax Office a few years ago and went to their enhanced version. It is super expensive, so I was just figuring everything out myself. It was not a big deal, but could take time on returns with several states. When they offered it the add on this year, I went ahead and ordered it, since it does save time and was not several thousand dollars. I think that they were trying to steer everyone to their expensive version, but it was too expensive for my practice.
  2. I wish that I could help you. I bought it, but have been so swamped with extensions, family stuff and random client issues that I have not been able to use the tutorial yet to figure it out. I have some clients that are not happy about not being able to come in, but we rarely let family in the house, so I'm not making exceptions yet.
  3. I wish that I had received this offer. It would be worth it for me. I am going to try my sales person. Thanks, Bonnie
  4. Darlene, I am so sorry for your loss. I'm very sorry that your family is not cooperating when this is a time that they should pull together.
  5. We don't even have any 7-11s left in town. I don't even know if there are any in Nebraska. We have a bunch of new convenience stores.
  6. I am happy to hear this. I just purchased it when I renewed, but I'm so swamped that I don't have time to learn how to use it. I really wanted something that should be fairly easy for my clients and myself. 2020 has worn me out.
  7. I am so sorry, Darlene. I agree with everyone here. Your family comes first and everything else can wait. Spend as much time with her as you can, get extensions and take care of them when you are able. Hugs and prayers to you and your family. Bonnie
  8. I received this letter and laughed my butt off. God knows that I want to retire from tax preparation within the next several years, but I love my clients too much to turn them over to HRB. 2020 has been enought to make me shut down right now, but I have to stick it out.
  9. My IT guy set it up with my new computer. I hope that it's working. After the initial encryption, I don't notice anything.
  10. I love real books. I read in the tub every night to wind down and I don't want my phone or tablet in there. I've already had books fall in. I'm currently reading a chapter or two of the Outlander books a night. I'm just finishing the third book and have the next one ready. I know that half price books has opened here and have a large stack to trade in. Our libraries are not open yet, but they are working on curbside pickup. I do read ebooks when I'm traveling or don't want to bother anyone with a light.
  11. My first tax season was as an intern through college in 1979. We prepared them by hand in pencil, then used copy paper and ink after review. I was the grunt that filed all of the CCH pages in the tax library. In the early 80s, we had an ice storm and I crawled across the parking lot to get into my car. It slid down my parking lot's hill on the ice and I could not move it for anything. My boss said I had to come in and he would send somebody to get me. A client with a tow truck came and pulled my car up the hill and carried me across to their truck to take me to work! I guess I was essenti
  12. D, I feel the same way. I don't even know where the time goes. People are really pushy here, also. I am working completely by myself and I'm not the happiest either. I was going to try to make it until 70 doing this, bu tif it keeps up like this, I may just wait to 65 for Medicare and then go work for somebody doing anything but this. I spend so much time answering the phone, emails and reading that actually preparing returns is a pleasure. I just got Ifirm as a portal yesterday, but I don't have time to learn to use it for at least a few weeks.
  13. I had a client call me and ask if his manager could take away tips from the hosts and give them to another host and make the original hosts claim the income. I told him that was totally not correct. His manager said that the other guy wasn't making as much and if he claimed the tips, it would come out of his unemployment. I can't believe the stuff these people make up.
  14. The 1099 received was to the LLC. The bank is going to add the LLC to the mortgage as the DBA. They are going to help them with doing the deeds.
  15. Done and set up for annual so I don't forget.
