  1. Are any of you experts in QB Enterprise and have active construction clients on QB. I am in a little bit of a pickle. I have a lot of experience with ERP's for Construction Accounting, and I have a lot of experience with small companies using QB Pro, but I am now working for a larger contractor that is using QB. Don't ask why, it is a long story, and I don't intend to keep them on this software forever. But while I start working on the conversion to another software, I need some help on trying to get owned equipment costing set up and charged to the jobs. If you know some tricks in QB for equipment costing and are willing to teach, I am willing to pay. PM me if you want to do some consulting. Thanks in advance. Tom Modesto, CA

    Where is the Bulldog Tom?

    Yep, I have been working at my new job. Tried to log in from work at lunchtime yesterday but I don't remember my password. So my account got locked. Tom Modesto, CA

    Silly Question - POA for Sole Proprietor's Business?

    It is payroll taxes. Tom Modesto, CA
  4. I am at the end of a long day. Do I need to file a POA under the Tax ID # of the business if I have a POA on the owner?. I don't think I need to do that.... But I am tired right now. Thanks Tom Modesto, CA
  5. Shout out to my girl RitaB for hosting such a wonderful event. I have considered her a friend online for years, but now she is like a sister. She put on a fabulous lunch for us all and we just had a marvelous time hanging out. Love you Rita....you are the best. In case it does not get mentioned, Possi is the best joke teller of the group. She does accents and dialects for all her characters. Abby is not far behind, he is very fun. Abby is also brilliant and has a wonderful spouse. Margaret can cook! Catherine is sharp as a tack and competitive as all get out. Jack is just like he is online. Edsel is a soft spoken southern gentleman. Gail is very sweet and funny. The back forty has a lot of flowers in it. Seems to be well tended and fertilized. Seriously, the view from Rita's house never gets old. I just kept walking outside to look out over the back 40. Beautiful country to look at. And most important....BulldogTom and Catherine are the undefeated cornhole champions. Thanks again RitaB for hosting. Tom Modesto, CA

    TNSEA Annual Conference for 2018 in MS

    This conference was awesome. Excellent speakers, well organized, good location. One of the best education seminars I have ever done. Learned some new stuff that I can use right away. Those of you who live in Tennessee have a great EA Society and a great education resource. I may try to come back again, even if Rita is not hosting in her back 40. Tom Modesto, CA

    June 23 Get Together / Shameless Plug

    @RitaB OK, I was just booking my hotel room, and something popped up on Hotels.com that you just have to tell me about.....What is Pandora's Forrest and Resort? It popped up as "Adults Only". I thought y'all were in the bible belt. And no, I am not staying there. I am flying into Memphis Wed and going to Tunica MS for the TNSEA seminar on Thur and Friday. Friday night heading over your way. I can help out with anything you may need in the morning. Just let me know. Tom Modesto, CA

    NOL Carryback and ACA

    Judy is so darn smart. Someday I am going to grow up and be smart like her. We need a reaction that says we agree with the poster when they give great advice like this. Like an "A+" or a checkmark. Tom Modesto, CA

    Business Reimbursement or Schedule C Income/Deduction

    I would advise him to get a personal credit card for those charges and keep those transactions off the schedule C and treat them as a reimbursement at the employee / employer level. Some jurisdictions use gross sales to determine taxes and fees charged to businesses. Like my business license. It is very nice of him to help out his employer, but I would advise him to keep his schedule C business "clean" of these types of transactions. Tom Modesto, CA

    TNSEA Annual Conference for 2018 in MS

    @Lion EA, I am thinking this is how I end up in @RitaB back 40 with a cold 40 oz in my hand on Saturday. But my spouse is a CA Registered Preparer and I would want her to attend and get credit for her hours as well. I think because it is IRS approved material it will qualify for her CPE, but I think the organization has to report it to CA. Any chance of the TNSEA reporting hours to CA? Love the class selections. Sounds real good to me. Tom Modesto, CA

    Summer Gathering

    @Abby Normal, you have to do a seminar on ATX tips and tricks. And give us all a certificate of completion. How else are we going to write this off? That is a lot of business miles I can rack up from CA to TN and back. Tom Modesto, CA

    Summer Gathering

    I am working every angle I can to get there with my spouse. But, I lost my day job and it will totally depend on if I get hired somewhere after we get back from our London vacation. Really hoping I don't have a job until July...or August...or later. I am enjoying the unemployed life. My backyard is becoming fabulous, all the to-do's around the house are getting done, and I have time to work on tax issues without any pressure. I could get used to this. Anyway, I have never driven across the country, so I am really excited to drive from CA to TN. I have a sister in southern OH, so I will stop by and see her too. But being away from the house for 2 weeks is a stretch for the spouse. I guess that means I am a maybe. Tom Modesto, CA

    IRS Audit Letter

    Not that I am the biggest fan of ATX, but one feature that it has that I can't live without is the watermark on the client copy. I change the watermark to "Corrected Copy" on the amended version of the return, and I print off the original return with "As Originally Filed" splashed across it. I don't know if that pisses off the IRS or not, but this is so much better than the way we used to do it by writing those things on the top, highlighting them, and then hoping the IRS employee noticed what you put on the top of the page. There is no way they can get the two versions mixed up. I cannot fathom living without the watermark feature ever again. Tom Modesto, CA
