  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 essential.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Done and set up for annual so I don't forget.
  12. These guys were doing this previously with some other property. I definitely want to prepare the 1065 if I can and not have to mess around with Schedule Es and then transferring it to a 1065. There is definitely a mortgage and they have called the bank. Thanks to everyone for their help.
  13. Commercial Rental Building was purchased personally by two married couples that intended to put it in an LLC. Unfortunately, the LLC was not organized for two months and the mortgage is in the names of all four owners. They didn't know that it was anything important until I started working on the 1065 and found that nothing was in the LLC's name. I've done a little research and it appears that it may be up to the bank as to whether they are allowed to transfer it into the LLC at this point. I told them to call the bank and the attorney. At this point, I think that each couple will have a Schedule E for 2019. It is not a community property state. They are all related if that might make any difference. I'm just looking for some reassurance that I am correct in showing half of everything on each joint return. I am now going to go back to an easy return, because everything that I have touched for the last week has had crazy issues like this. Thanks!
  14. I just want most of them over. I can handle some extensions until October, but my son had to postpone his May wedding and now it's set for September. I will be too busy for people to show up with their stuff in late August. I'm not even sure yet, if some are still coming back to me.
  15. A seasonal 501(c) 7 asked me about getting SBA money, but it looks to me that they do not qualify as they are not a 501(C)3 or either of the other two options. They would not have any payroll for 2020 until June at the earliest and may not be able to open at all in 2020. I am the first to admit if I'm wrong, but I would love to know if I missed a loophole. Thanks!
