Thanks for updating your user page

Your question has been moved back to the tax forum; in fact I also posted to it just now, to add the link the discussion I'd referenced in my original note to you, and to ask you for clarification on the age of the child - so the discussion is now not only back in the tax forum, but at the top of the forum index of active questions.

(My original note linked to Discussion:DEPENDENT STATUS and Publication 17 for the QC/QR chart on page 27.)

I share your anonymity concerns, and have been trying to come up with a way to change the blue "note to new users" that appears on every new user page to say something like "you can update your user page without losing your anonymity" - but I can't quite come up with the right language without going on and on forever - it has to be one short line. If you have any suggestions on what would have resonated with you - what would have worked, and would have allowed you to be okay with just updating your user page right then and there - I would really appreciate hearing them. (Unfortunately I can't change the "My name is John Doe..." boilerplate at the top of the user page, or I'd just drop in "(optional)" after name, personal info, etc.!)

Key "user page" info

The user page info serves two purposes: if you ask questions, it allows others to see that you're a tax pro and to tailor their responses to your level of experience, and if you respond to questions, it gives people some context within which to evaluate your response. So it's important both for the people posting questions and the people posting responses to have some info in the user page. Here are some examples of user pages that provide the important info without interfering with the anonymity of the users (just picking these off the front page of the tax forum index page at random): User:Lalva, User:Bobk, User:Texascpa, User:HarryEA.

The single most important item to include is your years and type of experience of a tax pro (e.g., "I have been a paid tax professional for 10 years; mainly individual tax returns"). The second most important would be any credentials (EA, CPA) or specialties you have. The third, and this becomes less important if you have significant years of experience or a credential, would be to explain your background a bit (e.g., if you're relatively new, but started out at HRB, it helps to have that in the profile as people then know the level of training you've received). None of those items would give anybody any way to indentify YOU or interfere with your anonymity at all.

Going beyond that (optionally): It can often be important to know what state you practice in - or really, what state the majority of your clients are in - due to differences between the states on some important items. If you don't have that in your profile, be aware that you may need to add that to your questions.

Thanks for asking. Once you add some info to your user page, your question can be moved back to the pro tax forum.

You're welcome

You're welcome, Mld123. I've had to do a couple 5452's and a did learn a few things in doing so. One being going back and re-calculating depreciation under §312 is not much fun! DAJCPA 17:17, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Wondering if you ever got more feedback or answers elsewhere. I have a client that ought in 2005, sold in 2007. Never took depreciation on improvements. Then sold in 2007 & preparer used 2005 & 6 depreciation against bais. Now carrying back 2009 NOL to 2007 and wondering if 3115 should be used. the 2009 version no longer has change category 9 (marked obsolete) but I do not see anything that says why it was obsoleted. Looking at Rev Proc's 2008-52 & 2009-39 that seem to modify 2004-11. But I think I can still file the 3115 under 2004-11 & 2008-52 using the 2003 version of 3115 as long as I get it filed by 10/15/11 - client 2007 return was extendid to 1015/08.

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.
