  1. I'd hold it, because while that's the rule for taxpayers, it can't hold true for the deceased. I heard last night about another couple of folks who has the same thing happen. I suspect it's not the weirdest thing we'll see before this is over!
  2. Judy, they fixed it for those who apply refunds to estimateds! Call it a refund but enter 0, and it works!!

    941 1st Qtr

    No date extensions on 941s or 990s.
  4. I thought the site was down today? It was supposed to be offline for a couple days to do major updates, with many more returns uploaded and who know>s? maybe even a fix for us SE folks (not holding my breath).
  5. Oy, there go most of my SE people, and me. Sigh.
  6. Judy, have you read that for certain, or is it just based on experience so far? I know they still haven't upload all of 2018 and 2019 returns into the new system, but I hadn't heard that they were automatically going for paper checks for those SE folks.
  7. So many emails on this.... And a lot of SE folks all in the same boat - any refunds would have been applied to estimated, so not sure if they should be using zero or the original over payment amount. Haven't gotten that far myself yet, I still get the message we-don't-know message (can't remember offhand what it actually says), so my return that was e-filed on the 2nd might still be getting processed. Since there's nothing odd about my return that would slow it down, I'm telling people that if they filed in April, it will probably take awhile.
  8. Gail, based on everything they've said, it SHOULD go to your joint account. But they won't have your 2019 processed yet, so they won't be able to verify you for a few more days.
  9. Well, in their defense, they're trying to do something in the quickest manner possible. Jackie, I'll be in the same boat as your client, so if you hear anything, I'd love to know.
  10. https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments This is the site for entering payment info. BUT, that's not intending for people who should ahve filed but didn't, it's supposed to be for folks who weren't require to file. So I'm not sure if she should/could use it.
  11. And next week the "Get my Payment" link will be available, for people to check on the status, or change bank or address info. But of course, everyone will just call us. https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments
  12. Yes, it's a way to get employees off unemployment and let them keep their insurance benefits. But yeah, all of these programs are poorly explained. Much like tax bills, Congree passes some of this without a lot of input from experts, so the agencies are scrambling to figure it out so they can explain it to us.
  13. My understanding is that the intention is to encourage companies to bring everyone back on full payroll now, even if they aren't working. I'm curious how that's going to work for health insurance though - since in most cases these companies will have already laid off employees, are the health insurers going to be making an exception and letting them go back on plans without waiting periods? We'll see....
  14. Well good grief. I tried 85 times to get through to them today before finally getting to hold for over an hour. What they said was ignore it. So why the hell is it in there??? She said that since earlier in the process you say that you're applying because of COVID; so since "Suitable FT employment" doesn't exist now, it negates what you're certifying to. But she said that's the question on a huge percent of their calls, so why they don't have someone re-word it, who knows. Now I get to email back all the clients who got hung up on that....
  15. Nope. It's listed as a requirement for SE folks. I still may try to call them when they have an open period (they have assigned reasons for calling during various days), to see if they can tell me more. The owners I know have spent their time trying to find ways to still make even a little income (like turning to mail order, or takeout for restaurants), plus hours trying to figure out and apply for any of the programs that might help, plus dealing with vendors and trying to get payment plans, plus helping employees file for unemployment. Not to mention only now finding out this is a requirement,.
