I am very thankful for this forum. I appreciate all of you who take the time to help answer questions. Would it be possible and helpful if the Discussion pages were divided into groups? Maybe it could be divided by entity, like individual, c corp, partnership etc.

Wouldn't be helpful. Would have to click too many times to see all discussions.

I use the "All Topics". Lots easier for me to follow all the forums. If all the forums were included as they are now, I don't see a problem for those of us that use "All Topics".

This might not be too helpful for people who want to follow all of the current discussions, but it could be a great solution to those who want to dig into the data to learn about a subject. Take a look at Discussion Forum - Lacerte to see how we might be able to add 'category views'. We'd currently need to create one page per category used, which wouldn't be very efficient. I am thinking through ways we could make this easier and allow filtered views, for example.

There's too many topics that twist together. How do you separate all the S corp issues from payroll, reasonable comp, LLC, check the box, choice of entity, real estate, rent, office in home, etc. etc. etc....

Many of the discussions in the Lacerte category are general questions that everyone can benefit from. The preparer who asked the question just happens to use Lacerte.

Ah - but that's the beauty of the system. Deb and others have done a great job categorizing current discussions. As soon as we get a change made, we'll be able to go back and categorize past discussions as well. These views basically would allow you to see all discussions categorized with "S Corp", "Payroll", etc. Keep in mind that I am not advocating that we segregate discussions into unique forum listings - they would stay where they are. This would just be an added way of filtering to find topics that you're interested in.

Deback were you referring to me as "the preparer who asked the question?"
