  1. I think amending is the only solution. I have never seen a form comparable to the 3115 for CA. Tom Modesto, CA
  2. Form 568 is the LLC Tax return. Form 3522 is the payment voucher for the current year. Form 3536 is the estimated tax payment voucher. You use both. Tom Modesto, CA
  3. In my experience, as long as the employee does not file a complaint against the employer and pays the tax due on their personal return, the IRS and State do not come after the employer. It usually only becomes an issue when the employee fails to pay their taxes on the income from the employer that the IRS or CA look to the employer for withholding that should have been done. I know this is not how the law reads, but it is my experience. Tom Modesto, CA
  4. I will let you know when I finally get the documents from the client to finish it. Tom Modesto, CA
  5. My real sales line on this subject goes something like this: "I charge by the form. I don't know for sure what forms you need, so I don't know for sure what it will cost. If you will show me last year's return, I can tell you how much I would have charged for that return. When we get done with the return this year, If you don't like the price, you can pick up your documents and walk out, no hard feelings. I price my services reasonably, and I think you will see that when we get done." I have never had anyone pick up their documents after I have completed the return. I think that knowing I will give them a last minute opt out gives them confidence. Or, I have them so far into the process that even if they think I am a little high on price, they don't want to go through the exercise again with someone else. Tom Modesto, CA
  6. I will do my best. Tom Modesto, CA
  7. Call the 800 number on the back of your card and the recording will tell you something else. Tom Modesto, CA
  8. Nope, it is on their recorded message before you even get to an operator. Before they knew where I was or who I was or what I needed. Tom Modesto, CA
  9. Normally, they give you a ride in the cab of the tow truck. At least the few times I have needed a tow, that is what they dig. I did not ask to ride in the cab of my truck, I know that is not allowed. I don't do Facebook or Instagram. You all are my social network. Feel free to use this information any way you want.

  10. I went to Reno NV this weekend to see my son and do some yard work with him (gambling was not the reason - it is my story, I will tell it my way). On the way through the mountains, my transmission went out. I am on the side of the road, 20 miles from the nearest town with weekend traffic whizzing by on Interstate 80. I am still 50 miles from my son's home. So I call AAA and tell them I need a tow. They tell me that is no problem, but that they can't let me ride with the vehicle. I have to arrange for my own transportation. Here I am on the side of the freeway, and I have to stand there, waiting for my son to come get me. Luckily, he was able to get out of work early and come get me, but the AAA driver just left me on the side of the road in the middle of the Sierra Nevada mountains. I am sorry, but this just seems wrong and wronger to me. If it was my wife instead of me, I would have been livid that they would leave her on the side of the road. Re-thinking my commitment to AAA after 30 years. I think there are other services out there. This policy of theirs could have deadly repercussions. Tom Modesto, CA
  11. Thank you for sharing John. Tom Modesto, CA
  12. TP formed a DE corporation cause the interwebby told him it was a good Idea. Is completely based in CA. I see that he has to pay a franchise tax to DE for the privilege of incorporating in the state. But I don't think they have to file a DE 1100 because they are "not doing business" in DE and the income tax is based on the apportionment to DE from the Federal 1120. Do I have this correct? Thanks Tom Modesto, CA
  13. I think the answer lies in what the office is used for. If it is used regularly and exclusively in the pursuit of his schedule C income, then it would be allowed. However, if it is used in the pursuit of his employment, it would not be allowed as employee business expenses are no longer deductible. JMHO Tom Modesto, CA
  14. ATX was much better when you were there. I love the software, hate CCH. In fact, my screen name on the official ATX board is "Idon'tlikeCCH". The soul of the company left when they closed down the Caribou offices and moved to Georgia. Tom Modesto, CA
