Jake - I am just curious, it seemed as if you disliked the corporate world & prefer working on your own doing returns. What do you/ did you like & dislike about each? What advice would you provide? I have considered carrying my book of business somewhere & then going into the corporate world, but there'd be no turning back. Maybe you just have better clients!

Ohio Insanity - Estimated Payments

Hi, Jake, I am a new enrolled agent and started my own practice this year. Ohio is so complicated. I wanted to make sure I have this right. I am in Ohio.

For State and Local Estimated payments, I can only include on Schedule A those payments made in 2010. I cannot include the Q4 payments that were made in January 2011. I am right on this?

For the Ohio State tax, I CAN include the estimated payments for Q1,2,3 and even Q4 though it was paid in January 2011. I can say all those payments count for line 20 of the IT1040. Am I right on this?

If I am right so far, does this also apply for Ohio School District Tax?

What about City Taxes. Same as Ohio and Ohio School District?

I would really appreciate your expertise. I have some new clients that are filing separately and it is hard to follow the previous preparer's documentation.

Regards,

Jake--thanks for the good laugh

love your definition of alimony. My ex partner used to say it is what you pay for something you want so bad. Doug 00:01, 10 March 2011 (UTC)Doug MDoug 00:01, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Practice Management Forum

Hi, Jake - your discussion about the sale of your practice has been relocated into the Practice Management forum. You can still get to it via the "my contributions" link in the upper right corner of your screen, or here: Discussion:Possible Sale of Tax Practice. As D&T noted in the discussion, it's not really a technical tax issue, and there are other "sale of practice" (and purchase) questions in that other forum - which might, actually, be useful to you so that you get familiar with any rules of thumb on valuation and handover issues.

You may have heard by now that the Tax Almanac ( www.taxalmanac.org ) 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 www.taxprotalk.com and join your fellow TA refugees.
