    June 23 Get Together / Shameless Plug

    Be careful, there is a waterfall (by/under a bridge) along this route. A stop to sight see here, has sucked many an hour out of my days.

    Final "Star" week 4/7 - 4/17/18

    I would enjoy seeing a "Tax Star Emeritus". KC would be the obvious, but who remembers Louis Sheffield, JN Mealer etc...

    Student loan debt discharged

    I had a school teacher (Kentucky) who qualified for this due to teaching in a certain area. Backed it out of income on Line 26 with the explanation "section 108(f)(1)" and it was never questioned for 10+ years.

    Ohio Retirement Credit

    Yes, and same with the $50 senior credit. Joint return - 250 worth of credits, separate returns - 500 worth of credits. It is (almost) always better to file separate in Ohio, given that Fed taxable incomes are within the same tax bracket. Disallowance of certain Fed items "if" filing separate, and Soc Security taxability are possible trips-ups, but minimal effort to check can double you income.

    Or a third with the formula - (Column A - Column B); zeros are even easier to see.

    Foreign Exclusion - Local Hoax?

    So the unasked question here: "He goes to work one day, and a "wildcat" strike breaks out. He is locked in the plant for 331 days. Is he entitled to the exclusion?"

    determination of employee status

    I would wait as well. I had this situation 20 some years ago, and client, (who had good records of payments), received a grossed-up W-2 that included minimal "income tax withholdings". Gross, less all taxes withheld from W-2, equaled payments received.

    How to stop depreceiation on schedule E

    I tried 6 times, before I used my "typical" work around. Just be sure to rename the GOOD return "w/2013 rollover", or similar wording so you don't rollover the wrong one next year. Jim

    How to stop depreceiation on schedule E

    I assume this is another "2013 enhancement". I ended up duplicating the return, (One for filing and one for next year's rollover.), and deleting the asset for filing 2012. Jim

    Positive ATX Comment

    I like the bottom tab navigation arrows. But since it only half gives back the "instant Page 1 jump" ability by right-clicking on "pages & worksheets" area, I still don't consider it much of an enhancement. Jim
