    I had an estate income tax return to do today, pretty much immediately after I returned home from retail work and had dinner. Notice the phrasing there, because that is different from a mere estate tax return, which is filed one time on a different form and only applies if, as of 2012, the estate is worth at least $5 million at the time of valuation. Independent of that is an estate income tax return, which occurs every year for the income which the estate receives. Having not filed a Form 1041 ...

    I have successfully evaded the rain today. The downpour was very temporary but it was enough to give everything a good soaking, and while that happened I was high and dry (well, the latter at least). I have adjusted the remainder of the Excise Tax forms for the 2012 year and should be ready to start making tests soon. From the looks of it, I might be able to copy the majority of content from last year's outright - which I won't do, but rather cite heavily for reference to ensure that what I create ...

    Five stockmen scheduled. Opener is a no call no show. Second is me. Third is the guy who has stopped coming to work and is possibly actively trying to be fired. Fourth has successfully applied for transfer to another store and will be gone in a week. Last guy continues to be scheduled despite injury. The machine died an hour before my shift ended. Another new helper sent out with me, and within the span of hours he goes from completely fresh to the job to saying that he "wants to slap people" ...

    I played some Gal Gun just a bit ago, and I chose to do so then because I did so last night in the early hours of the morning and the noise from using a gun attachment with the Move controller forced my wife to turn the fan on so that she could remain asleep. I guess my masturbation noises weren't the problem after all! Haha! Have fun getting that mental image out of your head. Well, trust me, it'd be worse if you knew what I looked like. But you already know, because I admittedly own Gal Gun and ...

    Today's Lesson is that it is difficult to find a bank's RTN when you only have eight of the nine requisite digits, nor the bank's specific name. Managed to put the Form 720 revision under wraps, so that means I should be able to get the other two forms (6627 and 6197) under wraps pretty much within a few days, because I don't think those forms were revised, and they would take much less effort to update if they have been. Next thing I need to do are few State returns and I'll be all caught up. ...

    One of the forms I set up a while ago is 1065 Schedule K1, which is used by the partners of a partnership to report income. Upon actually submitting the test return data now, it appears that I don't have to attach the document at all and I could have saved myself the work by not creating the form at all. Oh well! The IRS submitter client is also giving me all sorts of fits and I had to restart the program a few times just to get the tests through.

    Frustrating morning. I have two clients whom I want to file, one is much easier than another, and in both cases I have some information which I will want to confirm and establish before I push things through. Despite several calls, I never get any response. A $20 rebate I'm looking to get from my sound card was declined because the Amazon receipt which I printed was not specifically an Invoice or Tracking Number, so it has been declined. It has the order date, it has the order number, it has the ...

    Pizza. Pizza still tastes good. Not that I foresee my opinion of that changing, but it's nice to be able to enjoy some damned pizza every now and then. I say this because we try not to have it very often, because it is an expense which we try to keep in check. Glass bottle Coke also tastes good, and is nicer to purchase rarely, and is easier to justify its extra expense when the purchase is infrequent.

    Two co workers called off today. I am 0% surprised by this. They chose as good of a day as any to do it, though, since the customer volume was indeed significantly reduced. I need to pick up on Form 720 work soon - I didn't have much of any chance to continue it at all yesterday. I'm surprised that I'm so thrown off in my free time just for spending an evening dinner with family. I didn't even stay that long. In other work news, I need to write this here: I must remember to apply duct tape to the ...

    While the holiday is Easter Sunday, it is Easter Saturday which is of more concern to those of us who work at a retail store. It does seem that everyone made a point to shop yesterday and today to ensure that they were able to celebrate the actual holiday tomorrow. At least, that's what I hope. Meanwhile, for my particular station, one co worker called off, another is back on injured reserve (so to speak), a third is officially Not Giving A Shit because the job is too far away from where he currently ...

    I'm glad I had a short shift at the store today, because it seemed a bit busier than normal for a Friday. I wonder if there's something special going on for the weekend that more people have today off or are otherwise making an effort to shop today so that they're ready for Sunday. Come to think of it, I wonder how busy Sunday will turn out to be. Even for a small holiday like Mother's Day, the volume was visibly impacted.

    Distorted in Extra Mode is no joke.

    I spent what turned out to be more than an hour to fix up the rest of my record text file to match the current format. I probably could have just waited to change them as I replay the roster eventually but at least now when I do I can give proper accounting of differences, and my list won't look half assed. This matters to me, yes.

    Meanwhile, I finally finished up Form 5471, and in the end it weighs in at 10 MB for four pages of data with two extra pages to hold and display all the ...

    Working on Form 5471 for Federal corporate returns, and progress with it is excruciating. What is particularly awful with this is because since it's a form about foreign corporation affiliates and agents, there's several address fields on the first page for which the address could be foreign or domestic. The original form layout does nothing to accommodate this circumstance and just has a blank line to allow entry of any address regardless of origin. This means that what I have to do is program ...

    While I definitely don't suffer as I used to as a child, I think the allergy reaction is kicking in now. Eyes are watery and nose is runny. I also feel like I can't focus well, but I wonder if it's because I tried laying off the coffee this morning, which is something I need to resume doing for my days off of retail work. In other news, at 2AM this morning I heard some noises which I determined to be coming from outside of the house, but by the time I made it outside with a flashlight and broomstick, ...

    Long day is over. One thing I've noticed with the door greeter reposition is that the electric carts which the invalids use have nobody to tend to them, which is leading to more of them running out of power more frequently. I'm quite sure that anyone within range is getting an earful from the people who come to the store and are essentially paralyzed because the store doesn't have a cart for them. On the subject - I've often wondered as I see these customers come into the store, "Where were ...
