    s corporation tax return not going through

    I have just tried efiling my first S corporation tax return but Drake system gave error code 0014 QBI adjustment required and the message said: The adjustment will be made available in the software early January. It is recommended the return not be filed until all QBI adjustment are reported. I am confused because Drake also said that they have started accepting business return on January 8, 2019. I called Drake customer support and all rep said that Drake is still working on the issues but she could not give me any timeline. Has anybody else run into this problem. If so how did you get around it and what type of business return are going though the system right now? Thanks for your help. Naveen Mohan

    QBI Deduction entry in 1120S K-1

    I am doing a 1120S deduction and I cannot find a place in drake software where to enter QBI information for K-1. A poster in ATX said that it should go in code 17 V,W,X,Y,Z. I cannot seem to see those field when I open K-1 sheet. I see the tab for K-1, overrides, Basis WKS and Supp Info but no place where I see code 17 or a place to put wages subject to 199A? How do I complete this K-1 for QBI Information. thanks for your help. Naveen Mohan

    Drake practice return efile

    I am trying to do Drake practice return efile but I cannot seem to get rid of red x under efile. I am getting message: ALTERNATIVE E-SiGNATURE MISSING: You are not set up to sign electronic returns using the 8879 or Alternative E-Signature. However I have gone to Setup>Preparer screen and in the Return Signature option. I have entered my five-digit pin and I have first checked Alternative E-signature then I tried checking 8879 box and finally I tried checking both boxes but I still keep getting the same message. I am not sure what am I doing wrong here. Thanks for your help. Naveen Mohan

    Drake not doing team viewer

    This is going to be my very first year with Drake. Igot stuck in loading drake program in my new window 10 computer and I called Drake and asked if they could access my compute through Team viewer to help me understand what am I doing wrong. The customer service rep said that Drake does not provide that service. I am curious because ATX did provide that service and when I used intuit, intuit also routinely offered to access my computer to see what I was doing wrong. Is it case of miscommunication? If not how do you resolve problems with Drake when you cannot figure out what you are doing wrong? Thanks for your help Naveen Mohan

    1099 issued on sale of primary residence

    Normally upto $ 250,000 gain on the sale of primary residence is exempt and not even reported in a tax return. I have a client whose 83 years mother sold a trailer in Kentucky for $ 80,000 but the lawyer handling the transaction has issued a 1099 for this sale.. Normally she is exempt from filing a tax return because all she has is social security income. How do I handle it. Should I file a tax return for her. If so show do I report this on schedule D? Thanks for your help. Naveen Mohan

    2016 ATX Admin password not working

    For some reason, I cannot seem to log onto my 2016 ATX Max and there is nothing on the screen to reset admin password. I am one man shop so I am both admin and user. Is there a way around for me to reset the password? Mu username password are working OK in 2017 ATX Max. I did not renew my ATX Max this year because I have bought Drake. Could that be the reason that they have cut my access off from my 2016 ATX Max? Thanks for your help. Naveen Mohan

    Prior year tax returns after switcing to Drake

    I am switching to Drake after using ATX Max for 20 years. The question I have is how to do prior year taxes after my switch to Drake. Every year I get couple client who need to d prior year tax return. How do you guys handle it. Do you go back to your old ATX Max for that year to do prior year tax return or do you access Drake prior year software. Also if I am not ATX customer next filing season, will ATX still allow me access to my prior year software license or will they shut down my account. If I use Drake option, since I did not purchase Drake for 2017 tax year or 2016 tax year will Drake even allow me to use efiling for prior year tax returns. Thanks for your help. Naveen Mohan

    New to Drake how to enter depreciation

    I did a Sub chapter S corporation in ATX and then I tried to replicate it in Drake. I used fixed asset schedule in ATAX and I used 4562 Depreciation Detail as outlined above in Drake. Yet my depreciation in ATX is not matching with Drake. ATX is giving me a slightly higher depreciation. I have double checked my input in both sides and my asset class, service life, Amount, Date installed, prior depreciation, prior bonus depreciation is matching yet answers are not coming out the same. What other area should I be looking in. Thanks Naveen Mohan

    Best practices in switcing to Drake

    I am wondering if I need to buy both Drake and ATX Max for next year while I am transitioning from ATX to Drake or can I get by with just Drake software alone. I have purchased Drake 2018 and in the mean time I am using the evaluation version to reproduce all my 2017 ATX prepared return in Drake. I guess I am just afraid of the fear of unknown because I have used ATX since 2002 and I am afraid of last minute issues because I am not yet as familiar with Drake as I am with ATX. Will I be alright with Drake alone? Thanks for your help. Naveen Mohan
