    Does anyone know when will the system be back up? IRS website does not mention the day it will reopen.

    The port that failed on my computer was the HDMI, VGA still works, are you using an HDMI connection?

    Computer Advice (Display Driver Error)

    I had the same problem with a Dell XPS, I was using dual monitors and the video card finally went out, but it only affected one monitor, I am the awkward person with two monitors but only uses one of them.

    990 M-2 equivalent?

    Does anybody know if there is M-2 equivalent for a 990? A fellow accountant friend of mine client had a financial audit for 2015 & 2016 after the 990 was prepared. He is having trouble for 2017, if he keeps the beginning balance (from prior year tax return), then he cannot balance for 2017. The problem is solved if he uses the audited financial statements balances as of 12/31/17 but then it will not match the tax return that was filed. Can he just use the new beginning balance or is there another form to reconcile the balance? Thanks

    Sch C or Sch A?

    Show this to your client: https://www.legalmatch.com/law-library/article/theft-by-conversion.html He can file a police report and make his friend a wanted person, this will get his attention.

    Large employer - no coverage

    Does anybody here have a client that didn't offer any health insurance and is now getting notices from the IRS? If yes, did you or the IRS calculate the penalty? Thanks

    W-2 -> Home office -> Travel

    Yes unreimbursement but for 2017.
  14. Your thoughts one this one.... 1. TP works for a IT company that has no fiscal offices in the US, so the TP uses their home as an office. 2. Employer office is in Tokyo, but has US corporation to conduct business here. 3. Employer has a government contract which requires the TP to troubleshoot over the phone/remotely or travel to the base which is 40+ miles each way. 4. Not everything can be done over the phone/remotely all the time, so travel is required about 80% of the time. Can the TP deduct mileage even though TP is required to be at base most of the time? Thanks
