  1. Just wondering why Edsel is worried about the employer. Paying the SUTA is their issue, not the employee. And it is not the parent's issue either. Unless the parent is the employer? Or the employer is also a client of Edsel? Or the student is going to get a 1099 MISC and not a W2? So long as the student gets a W2 from the employer, Edsel can prepare the returns. It is a slow day and I am bored, so I am thinking about this instead of working like I should be. Tom Modesto, CA
  2. So long as the parents are claiming her as a dependent, their home is her home. Tom Modesto, CA
  3. Did the TP move permanently to CA? It is a question of Domicile. If they moved to CA with the intention of living here permanently, then they are a part year resident. If they moved here temporarily and they intend to go back to IL, then they are a non-resident. Different rules for each scenario. Residents are taxed on world wide income (with a credit for taxes paid to another state). Non- residents are taxed on the income received while working in the state. Tom Modesto, CA
  4. Got an email from ATX. They will not do anything for prior years to allow for this change. They say it will be incorporated into the 2019 software. Tom Modesto, CA
  5. Got a call today from ATX. They are looking for the authority to make the IHHS payments eligible for EIC while excluding for Fed Income Tax Purposes. So they are finally working on the issue of how to enter in ATX. Tom Modesto, CA
  6. Judy changed her avatar. She now has a face to put to the posts! Tom Modesto, CA
  7. Guess who just called today when her self prepared return was sent back? Looks like she wants to file MFJ now that we explained why she could not file single, why she would have to pay back the PTC, and why she needed to file a CA return for the wages she earned in CA. She really did not understand that she was getting the PTC, and she really thought that if she moved to another state by the end of the year she would not have to file in CA. How she came to those conclusions I don't know. I think now that she has all the correct information, we can make this right by both of them and then they can go their separate ways after we get the return filed correctly. Tom Modesto, CA
  8. Not sure about the answers to your specific questions, but how about starting with the 4562? Was there one included with the return? It should have been. Since the business started in 2017, and if the form is filled out, it will show you the assets purchased and available for 179, as well as the breakout of the totals for 3 year, 5 year, 7 year etc. Next, I would ask for the financials for the company for 2017. It might be easier to recreate a return from the original documents (I bet you find errors that can get you an amended fee) than to try and use the limited information you have on the originally prepared return. That is just how I would approach it. Tom Modesto, CA
  9. Who has plans anymore that have minutes? I have been on an unlimited plan for about 6 years. I don't like to call on my cell because the quality of the connection sometimes suffers in my office. Kinda weird. Good service most places, but not my office. It is OK, but not great. Tom Modesto, CA
  10. I don't do enough representation work to make it worth my while right now. If I had to go through this every day, I would sign up. Tom Modesto, CA
  11. Oh what a relief. Finally. 2 and a half hours for a 5 minute conversation. The guy on the other end was competent and resolved my problem quickly. Blamed it on a computer program not working properly. What else is new. Tom Modesto, CA
  12. Mine has a cord. I am not fancy dancy like that. Hoping this gets resolved soon or I may have a puddle under my chair. Tom Modesto, CA
  13. I really need to pee, but I can't take the chance that they will pick up while I am in the bathroom and I miss out and have to start all over again. Tom Modesto, CA
  14. 2 hours hold time and counting. I think I ought to get a Facebook account and live stream what I do while on hold for the IRS. I bet it would be a big hit. I could get my own YouTube channel and have people watch me play solitaire while holding for the IRS. I am real good at solitaire. Tom Modesto, CA
  15. After holding for 25 minutes this morning, it looked like I was going to get through.....NOPE. "Due to technical difficulties, we cannot answer your call at this time. Try your call again later." Tom Modesto, CA
