Welcome back

Hi, Marcilio - I wasn't around when you were posting more prolifically in the past, but I recognize your name from so many discussions that have come up in searches I've done for people that I almost feel like I know you already. I had noticed that you started posting again and wanted to say hi. Sorry I didn't get around to it before now, as I also need to bring up one other thing:

I don't know the timing of when the copyright policies were put in place for the TaxAlmanac site, so it's possible that this is something new since you were last posting regularly - currently, we're not supposed to post anything that's been copyrighted by somebody else. I mention it because your recent post here (the Form 1024 discussion) looks like a CCH/RIA/etc. copy/paste, and that's specifically one of the things we're not supposed to do, since that is info that those tax services charge for (e.g., you pay to access the services), and they don't like to see their proprietary info passed along on an open forum - so it could get TaxAlmanac into trouble.

Mostly how we deal with that is try to get somebody, preferably the person who originally posted the content, to paraphrase the copyrighted info, so that the gist of it is posted, to replace what was pasted in from the paid services. Sometimes it's just a matter of posting or linking to the most relevantrulings/court cases, if that's where the bulk of the answers are. And, of course, if that's info from the site, we're free to copy/paste from there as much as we like.

Please let me know if you need more info on the policies, or have any questions - thanks.

Tax court case law discussion from 5/24/10


Thanks for your help with the tax court cases in regards to the 1024 app. Can you please tell me what keywords you may have used in your search? And which service you use? With your help, I was able to successfully obtain nonprofit status for my client and would like to learn more. Thanks so much! Feel free to e-mail me.

Editing posts

To delete a duplicate post, or to edit any part of your own posts, open the discussion and click "edit this page" - you will see the entire contents of the discussion inside the blue edit box. Make the changes, and then click the "save page" button at the bottom.

When deleting an entire post (e.g, because it was a duplicate), delete all the way from the first squiggly brackets to the last (of that one post), including the brackets. When changing the content of one of your own posts, be sure to not delete the squiggly brackets!

More info on editing in the FAQ.

Hi Marcilio. I appreciate your comment and expertise on this but please elaborate on the "Dissolution of old s corp to start new".

Thanks. Tax ROY.

Your tax interview question

As D&T has noted, I believe that your recent tax interview question will get better responses over in the practice management/business growth forum. It's not really a technical tax question, for the tax forum. So I'll be shifting it to the new forum shortly; you will still be able to get back to it via the "my contributions" link in the upper right corner of your screen.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this.

Editing hint

When you edit a post, if you add your new info before the two squiggly brackets, it'll appear inside your original post. By adding it after the brackets, it shows up as an extra line in between your post and the next.

Trillium 01:39, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

I think I might have confused you! It's like this - if you go to edit a post, and at the end it says something like:

See Revenue Procedure 2002-69.}}

Then you add your information like this:

See Revenue Procedure 2002-69. File Form 8832. See Line 4a&b. Fill in information on both, and attach a statement.}}

So the brackets that were there at the end of your post before you edited are still there after your edit, and the info you added is before them. Hope that helps.

Treasury Regs

Hi, Marcillio -

I noticed you've been adding some treasury reg excerpts to the site recently. First - THANK YOU! Thanks for adding to the usefulness of the site!

You knew there was a "but" coming: The site already has treasury regs, and while they're not very current, they are scheduled to be updated quite soon. One of the regs you loaded (the one today) already exists in complete form: Reg. 1.6662-7. And it appears, at a glance, to be the same as what you posted. We don't want those to be duplicated, so I'll probably delete the new one you set up. The one you loaded the other day is - I believe - an old Proposed Reg and was never actually made into a formal reg (that was Reg. 1.219(a)-4(d)). I checked the eCFR, which is updated weekly or daily, and the reg you posted isn't on there as a current reg. But I do think it's still a valid proposed reg.

As a proposed reg, it should be formatted a bit differently and should be titled Proposed Reg, etc. So I'll look into that - or if you have knowledge on that already, please let me know to save me some time.

In general, Tim Doyle had indicated to me that Intuit would love to have people uploading research resources to the website, with the exception of the IRC and the regs. They felt it was important to have source documentation and overall control of those resources, which I agree with (although feel free to provide an argument to the contrary if you disagree!), so he wanted those pages to be provided and updated only by Intuit employees. My understanding was that he had hoped that volunteers like you and me would stick to uploading the IRB info and original content.

Another thing I thought I'd make sure you knew: research resources uploaded to the site cannot come from your paid research service. That can get both you and Intuit in trouble with the research service (and they can often identify their content in ways we might not be aware of). You also need to be careful of copying and pasting content from other websites, as most of them are protective of the resources that they spent time gathering, developing, and formatting. But the and websites, along with most other governmental websites, are fully available as sources of information to be loaded up onto

Again - thanks very much for adding content to the site. I hope you continue to do so, and join in in any other way you like. I just wanted to make sure you knew some of the background on what Intuit is expecting.

Oh yeah, don't forget the three tildes to sign your name. Trillium and I know how to figure out who posted to our talk pages, but most others don't.


Thanks, Marcilio - glad you posted to my page about seeing my note - I'm sure that when if I hadn't read your note to me before I saw the new reg article I woulda thought "huh - he's ignoring me!" But not to worry; I'll take care of resolving any duplicates and maybe I can change your link to one of the "official" regs. And just try to link to the current version or to the eCFR from now on, as you said.

Also, I think Kevin's note to you, above, was in response to a prior person's note, but perhaps you're also interested in seeing your past contributions!

Do you have a positive cite for your position. Or do you take the position that there is no negative cite, such as for an IRA.

Code section links

Hi, Marcilio:

Your links to code and reg sections will turn out better if you put the ending double brackets after the section number and before any subsection letter, e.g.: [[Sec. 121]](c), or [[Reg. 1.338-6]](c)(5).

Thanks, in any case, for providing the cites!

thank you

Thank you Jim.

Tax efflicient way of getting assets out of C-corp

Could you elaborate on establishing a defined benefit plan to get the assets out? The client is older. There are currently no liabilities on the balance sheet and it is a PHC. If that changes anything.

A topic you posted to recently has been moved

The emailing clients and client consent discussions that were started in the tax forum yesterday were moved over to they Practice Management forum, since they are practice management topics (as defined in the Discussion Forum Index. You posted in at least one of those, and Michaelstar has recently reminded me that it would be considerate to let people know when discussions are moved.

You can still find it via the "my contributions" link in the upper right corner of your screen.

Are you, by any chance, MinnieMadrigal?

Hi, Marcilio:

I noticed that earlier today two posts made by a brand new user, "MinnieMadrigal," were pretty quickly replaced by posts made by you. Had you previously been signed in with that other name?

If not, I want to block that other username from posting (it's too long, and also looks like a spammer name)... but I won't do that until I hear from you, because if you had created that other name and used it from your computer, then your regular ID would also be blocked.

We have, in the past, seen circumstances where posts end up showing up as if made by somebody else who happened to be signed in at the same time. That's some type of caching error, and if that's what happened here - if Minnie isn't a side ID for you - then I should tell Intuit to reset the caching. And I can block that username without it affecting you.

Please let me know.

End of the forum

You may have heard by now that the Tax Almanac ( ) web site forum is permanently closing its doors effective June 1. Perhaps you have seen the pink bombshell “Important Service Announcement” when logging in.

Long-time TA user ChrisV2 has volunteered to set up a new website where TA users may continue the discussion. The site is up and running now and has an active base of contributors.

We invite you to take a look and join your fellow TA refugees.
