    It's been a rather stupid twenty four hours. At least my appointment went OK, though that wasn't without its own bit of fun. Why didn't she tell me she didn't have a printer before I arrived? Come on now.

    Songs. They were rather good today. That's something to be thankful for.

    Appointments are set for two clients. I will be going to my aunt's house tomorrow and meet with the other client sometime at Thursday of next week. As of this moment I will now file the latter's Federal returns and see about getting the paperwork ready for the States.

    I made another successful 1120S test submission earlier this morning. It was rather gratifying to have an initial error count of 2.

    Songs were basically very good today. I had another strange error greet ...

    Tomorrow I need to get some checks deposited and then see about making appointments to get the other returns filed.

    I was thinking about it, and I think the Internet has essentially nullified April Fool's Day. Everything is passed around so quickly that nobody has any way to receive a joke without believing it for any length of time before going elsewhere to find out its fake. Not only that, but considering how rumors are taken as factual news throughout the rest of the year, it means ...

    There is a PS4 in the house now. My wife and I have been talking about getting one lately but not with making any certain plans about making the purchase in the near future. She decided that today was as good of a day as any to make the acquisition. All right then. My D3 pal has been playing Warframe a lot lately and I'll get to judge the game first hand after posting this. He's one of the very few people who have anything positive to say about it. Let's see what happens. Oh, the PS4? Yeah it's ...

    A few days ago at work I came to discover that it's possible to use the stationary terminals to access the same environment which we use on our handheld scanners in the normal process of work. I should have remembered that these last two Sundays when I was hit with the last minute crunch and needed to do some raw numeric data entry. Doing that would have been much faster on an actual normal keyboard.

    My niece had her baptism today. Despite being at my sister's place by 5PM, we were ...

    I gave the preliminary return estimate to the client and did successfully correct the errors on the Test 7 Form 1120 scenario to have that be received without error. That put me at 11PM. OK, let's go to bed. The last time that I noticed reading on the clock in the bedroom was 1240AM, and sometime soon after that I was greeted by a cat who demanded for me to lay upright on my back so that he could sit on my chest. This lasted a while until he got bored with it and finally migrated to my side. 4AM ...

    It appears that there a few additions to my Google+ page which never got responded to in the interim that has passed since I last personally logged onto the specific email for that account. I really do need to do everything by myself. Upon looking at it, though, I think it might be a good venue from which I can more easily cherry pick interesting items pertaining to the tax field, and that might be the mentality that I need to embrace if I am to get anywhere.

    Songs. Turns out I didn't ...

    I received an answer which I never would have expected and I did take the time to argue about after receiving it. Page 13 of 2013 Publication 525 clearly states what to do when there is a sale of stock acquired through ESPP, and gives two examples in the cases where the holding requirement is met or it is not met. How many people engage in this kind of transaction every year, would you think? Hundreds would seem low, wouldn't it? I would think that at least a few thousand people across the nation ...

    Three hours on the phone with various entities yields the result that I have a case to which the IRS should respond to me tomorrow. I don't understand what it is about this kind of income to report that I'm the only person who is experiencing a problem. What am I missing? I understand what needs to be reported, where it needs to be reported on paper, what Forms and schedules are allowed to be filed in the electronic format, and despite all of that I can't reconcile the proper way to do this. Others ...

    When a person acquires corporate stock through an Employee Purchase Plan at a discounted price, there are rules for the quantity and method for how that discount is reported on the tax return in the year that the stock is sold. In one instance, you are supposed to receive two forms: a W2 with the amount to report as ordinary wage income (as opposed to modifying capital property basis), and a Form 3922 for informational purposes. I have a client who had some papers about a stock sale, but not even ...

    Up late and busy day, up against the clock now too. Will say more tomorrow.

    One natural consequence of me being alone at retail work yesterday and the way in which I went about the day is that there were many empty spots on the store shelves to be found and filled today. On a day when grocery picks are large it would take the team until 12PM at latest to have the list complete. One person called off today, and there was much more to do beyond the grocery picks. As a result, I wasn't done with the list until 340PM, and that was after spending the entire day doing grocery ...

    I stayed twenty minutes late at the retail job today to finish the list of audits to complete. As it was last Sunday, I was the only person there, and unlike last week I had dedicated the majority of the day to simply doing audits in the proper fashion. I left myself forty minutes before the scheduled end of the shift to complete the rest of the audits in another fashion, and almost had them done at the top of the hour. Had I left myself twenty more minutes to do it, I would have been fine. Normally, ...

    At Christmas time last year, I had written a few small emails to a few of my former D3 PC pals for some holiday greetings. It wasn't until today that I received a response from the last of the people whom I sent the notes. It turns out that I didn't mail it to the account he normally reads. Whoops.

    I was almost done with updating Form 1120F Schedule M3 last night, but simply ran out of time. There's more than 100 fields which all needed to be totally updated, as opposed to simply ...

    Re: Brackets. Always bet on Duke, they said. Well that's what I did because I didn't recognize the name of whatever team they apparently lost to, so thus ends my submission and the extent to which I care about college basketball. Let it be known that this is the most that I've cared about college basketball ... pretty much ever.

    I just did a +1 for Google Plus on an article and offered a comment to it. I selected "Public" for the circle, and it now appears that it's visible ...
