Long-time TaxAlmanac member (user page info needed)

Hi, I see you've been a member of TaxAlmanac since January 2006 (wow, way at the start!) - welcome back!

The members of this website like to be able to know a bit about the people we're interacting with, so please add a little info to your user page / profile to give some info about your background/level of experience, and maybe even some of the other info as shown in the boilerplate language on your user page. You don't need to provide any personally identifying information, although some users do like to include their contact information there, too.

Other users can then click on your name in any discussion for a quick way to find out a little bit about you, to frame their responses for any questions you may post. People use that info when deciding whether to respond to questions (some members won't respond at all when the user info hasn't been updated, if they don't recognize the user name), and also how to respond - e.g., with more complex responses/code (or acctg codification) cites/court cases for those with plenty of experience, or with pubs, general observations, or cautionary info for those with little experience.

I noticed that your user page was the old hard-to-edit version, so I've updated it to the current version that has some info about how to edit, and has some boilerplate you can copy or mimic.

A lot of other things have changed since TA first got going - so here are some good links for refamiliarizing yourself with TaxAlmanac: FAQ, Hints and Tips on How to Search on TaxAlmanac, Code of Conduct, and Policies.

Also, if you didn't see this page when you started your new tax question tonight, please update your bookmark to go to that page - and also please take a minute now to scan the page to make sure that you actually went through the process (it really does help people to get better results from their questions here).

Your e-file error code question has been moved over with other efile/software questions

It had dropped off of page 1 of the tax forum, and wasn't a tax question anyway, so it's now showing on the index for the Practice Management/Business Growth Forum, where software questions and efile questions are part of the standard repertoire (you can see what's meant to go where here: Discussion Forum Index.

You may get additional responses as a result of this move. And you can still, as always, get back to your prior discussions via the "my contributions" link at the top right of your screen.

I would encourage you to add some info to your user page about your level of experience/background as a tax pro (click here: user page, click the "edit this page" tab at top center of page, make changes to the boilerplate, and click "save page" at the bottom). Now that everybody's so busy, I'm noticing that more people are ignoring the questions from the people without any user info, even if they have a long user history, as you do - so it's worth the minute or two it'll take you.
