Welcome SNOW!!

FL is my home and I will bet a dollar that you most likely have a winter home not far.

Thank you for the got my blood boiling...hehe


EA's and HRB

I only know that they don't work on commission. In my district all the audit rep slots are full, so I didn't get hired to do that.

Snowbird, now I see Hmoy

Thanks for stepping in there with your comment, I see what you mean by criminal now. I finally got around to carefully reading the original post for Hmoy and see that his client was failing to report his rental income, or at least was very reckless in not doing so. No wonder the agent got err... mad.CrowJD 00:19, 12 June 2008 (CDT)

Too much time

It's time for you to logoff, Snow! And go visit with your grandkids. Natalie 22:02, 8 November 2008 (CST)Natalie

Thank you for the response on the RV question. I did update my profile. I am curious why the corporation could not own the RV and rent the RV to the stockholder at an arm's length price and still show it on thier books as a rental property. I am leary of Montana LLC (the client said corporation, but it would be an LLC)it reads too bood to be true! KansasCPAKansasCPA 19:40, 20 July 2009 (CDT)

Appreciate your input

Thanks for your input. The link was great on discussions.KansasCPA 09:15, 21 July 2009 (CDT)

Thanks for your link to the call center at home :) Husband looking for work and something like that would be great...going to have him apply.:)

Telemarketers in the Home...

Thank you so much for posting that article in the General husband is looking for work right now and we can not afford childcare...I am going to talk to him and see if he wants to look into that company or find another company that does the same thing. I did Telemarking years ago before I got into accounting (hey it was a job right out of college...and the only thing in the area).

Laticiaw -- actually it's Laticiam now...I can't get them to change my user name to my new last name...:(

US kids ranked #1 in confidence

I saw this video clip on the Jon Stewart show, and thought you may be interested. Video features survey showing US kids ranked #1 in confidence, but near the bottom in everything else.

Just sent you an email

I was out all day yesterday - sister-in-law's husband passed away and she needed my help. Kevinh5

Couldn't tell -

Were you withdrawing your question about the name, or reiterating it? If the latter, see Discussion:Which name should she use?.

Whoops, sorry

I thought you were done with that question, but I probably misinterpreted the combination of you saying you were "overthinking" it and that note about the name change.

I've moved the discussion back to the regular discussion pages, and you could post that extra info to Keith there now if you wanted to (if you don't see the discussion in the forum index on page 2 or 3, just go to the "my contributions" link in the upper right corner of the page to see your list of recent (or really, all) posts.

I can hazard a guess about why you haven't gotten more feedback one way or the other. The 2008 recovery rebate credit (UNLIKE the 2007 advance economic stimulus payment, which would have been a problem for late-filed returns), was just a normal tax item with no special SOL rules. So your question may have been seen as a bit odd, like asking if there's a special statute of limitations for meal expense, or adoption credits, for example.

(PS I'll be back later to explain more about what the archives are and why that discussion was moved.)

Discussion Archives

This is a new section of the site. Old discussions are supposed to be getting moved there by Tim Doyle (and his magic robot that handles stuff like that), which will make the search engine much more efficient, as it'll only search by default on the more recent discussions and those older discussions that had a particular topic category appended (which is done for the ones that have a lot of in-depth info or good cites). Once discussions start getting moved there on a wide-scale basis, the search instructions will be updated so that everybody (a) knows about the change and (b) understands how to search the archives if the default search doesn't turn up what they need. But for now, we just move things as they come to our attention.

The discussion you bumped was (prior to your post) not a very thorough exploration of the "2007 advance payment/2008 stimulus paid net of whatever was received in 2007" topic, so it was scheduled to be moved into the archives. You actually found it and posted your question to it in the time between when it was scheduled to be archived and when it was moved, so I made sure it didn't get moved until it had moved to page 2 of the forum index and your question had been settled. Which is where I obviously made an error of judgement, as you seem to want more info. Sorry again for misunderstanding your level of completion!

Please feel free to post whatever follow-ups you have onto that same discussion, or any other one. And let me know if any of this didn't make sense and you want more explanation.

Another apology

I just got your last note, and yes, this latest confusion was all my fault. I usually review what's happening on the site via the "recent changes" page (navigation link to the top left of the screen), which shows not only discussion posts but also talk page posts (from/to/date/time/etc). Since I realized that the talk page note was from you to Keith, and I remembered that you were the two who had recently interacted on that discussion that I'd just moved over to the Discussion Archives, I thought I'd better take a peek and see if I'd screwed something up. And I realized that I had.

So - yes, your note went to Keith, but (like everything on the wiki), anybody can read it, and I did. It would have been a good idea to explain that to ya, I now see. (I think many of the people who use "recent changes" to see what's going on all over the site read pretty much everything that's going on, but you've reminded me that not everybody knows about how much fun "recent changes" can be.)

Fred, from Mufid

Well, it seems no matter what is posted someone "is-watching," OH BUT THEN anyone can edit or delete anything they previously posted

Big Brother watching in the Brave New World (book i read in h.s.)

Anyway. Atty, CPA, EA (simply alphabetical so as to not offend) doesnt matter. IT IS the tax knowledge the person has and his/her (again so as to not offend) has and the committment to a fudicary responsibility to those they serve.

In this tax season a friend told ne to checkout this site for easy to use "Resource Material" but watch out for the forums! That there were approximately 500 "actively" participating professionals!

He/she (lol) was right, nice research materials. 500 active~looks more like a small handful (acting like a hs "click"), and beware, YEP!

Yes, I am serious in life. A gift from '68vietnam.

The user list(s) says far more CPA's than EA's but the posts are almost all by EA's very sensitive about CPA's

I have posted many. many "conservative" factual thoughts, NO ONE has replied actuall discussing or rebutting any of them, just socialist propaganda.

Oh well, off to somewhere. Enjoy those retirement checks. I AM, just got first of 20-30 years more of them>

I'll try to find

Snowbird, I'll try to get you the name of the book that I read that stuff about the Russians from. Of course, any book can be subjected to criticism and I am sure that there are those who would criticise the book.

I checked it out at the library, but I'm bad about not keeping a list and I read a lot (maybe too much).

Come to think of it, I'm sure the library keeps a list of what I've read, but I don't know how far it goes back. I'll find it.

Intelligence and "spycraft" are amoral businesses. I'm sure you know this already.

It operates on the principle of aligned interests. So it's quite possible to have chilly relations with a country about a lot of things (topline relations), but to still share intelligence back and forth with that country on aligned interests. The Russians are known to be a dependable source of information about that area of the world.

And the Russians also want good information from us, so it behoves them to tell us the truth in areas of aligned interests.

My problem all along with the Iraq war was not that I am a pacifist.

My problem was that we didn't tell the truth about it. We wanted that oil under our control. That was decided before Bush's first day in office. Bush was also furious about the contract Saddam had put on his dad. The family didn't like that. They don't call it the Bush Clan for nothing.

I have no problem with an oil grab when it's absolutely necessary. It would have been us or the Chinese, and I would rather it be us that essentially controls that oil. I just don't like the idea of young boy-men marching off to war based on half truths. They have a right to know what they are fighting for.

Take care. Have a great Thanksgiving. Fr. Mackelhenry 23:05, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Wide Open

"You forgot stage 6 ... Insanity."

lol. I left myself wide open for that one. I blame it on Rollo May for leaving that theory open for people to add additional stages.Gazoo 22:29, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
