Resident expert

Dave Fogel is a user who used to post frequently on tax almanac. Very respected in the TA community. He has a website that Kevin5h referred to. He is literally, most likely, one of the top 5 people in the US in knowledge about COD income and all the traps/pitfalls of this topic.

When you have a moment, go look at a couple of his published articles about COD.

Welcome to the community.

I am sorry that you took that the wrong way. Wasn't meant to be. I was more short on time than trying to be short. I've seen your posts and you are usually spot on. Also I was addressing my answer to the user who is very seasoned and not someone new.

Trust me when I say, that although I've been doing this for many years I have much to learn. But I also know that sometimes, just fixing something and moving forward is the easiest way to go. As I said, since it is a small nonprofit and the difference is most likely not a huge one, in my opinion I might just do as I stated. In fact, I probably would. If it is examined and they wished to change it, the ramifications are not that great, other than the time required to work on it, which obviously, would not get billed to the client and is simply my time lost..

Again, sorry for the misread, but definitely, please also post what yuo sent me as well. As I said, my way is one way and if you want discussion on this to proceed, please continue, I promise I am not like some of the others who snipe if their answers get questioned.

Thank you very much!

In response to the following message you sent me:Congratulations on passing the CPA!

Way to go on passing the CPA exam, you will not regret it. One of my favorite jokes is, Do you know what CPA stands for? Can't pass again, or was it can't prove anything? Or, you might be a CPA if:
  • you think there are 5 seasons in a year
  • you use tick marks on the grocery list at check out
  • you didn't know that GAP is a clothing store
  • You place your left socks in the left drawer, your right socks in the right drawer

Best of luck,

Thank you very much!

My apologies for not replying sooner, but of course it's that time of the year. 2 more days!!

Love the jokes.

It's a nice feeling passing and must admit I'm proud of myself. I'm sure you you were too. I took my last part on January 31st and tax season really kicked into gear on Feb. 1st. Needless to say I was pretty much drained going into tax season and couldn't wait for it to end since day Couple of more days and I can finally recuperate.!

Anyway, thank you again. That was real nice of you.

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.
