What is happening with the NY Chapter? I have not seen any correspondence in months. Is anybody from the NY Chapter going to the National Conference this year?

TAXPAYER GIFTS HIS PERSONAL RESIDENCE TO HIS CHILDREN AND RETAINS A LIFE ESTATE. TAXPAYER FILES A GIFT TAX RETURN. WHEN TAXPAYER PASSES AWAY, IS THE PERSONAL RESIDENCE (TITLED TO THE CHILDREN BEFORE THE TAXPAYER'S DEATH) PART OF HIS GROSS ESTATE FOR NYS SUROGATE COURT FEES? IF THE ANSWER IS YES, DOES THE ESTATE REPORT THE SALE OF THE PERSONAL RESIDENCE ON FORM 1041? IF THERE IS A LOSS FROM THE SALE IS IT A CAPITAL LOSS OR A PERSONAL NON-DEDUCTIBLE LOSS (THE RESIDENCE REMAINED VACANT DURING THE PERIOD OF ESTATE ADMINISTRATION)? IF THE ANSWER IS NO, DO THE CHILDREN REPORT THEIR SHARE OF THE SALE OF THE PERSONAL RESIDENCE ON THEIR 1040 AS A NON-DEDUCTIBLE PERSONAL LOSS? UNFORTUNATELY, I GET DIFFERENT ANSWERS TO THIS.

The NY Chapter is considering hosting a Tax Office Bootcamp in 2016. The Bootcamp would cover practice management, client retention, marketing, team building for office staff and best practices for a successful tax practice.
The Bootcamp would be taught over two (2) days and would offer attendees a chance to learn and grow their business while networking with other tax professionals in their area. No CE would be offered.
Please take our NEW SURVEY to let us know!

NY State is telling me that I need to complete 16 hours of Continuing Education.
I am NOT an EA or CPA or Attorney (nor do I play one on TV). I HAVE completed more than 10 NY State Income Tax returns in 2014, 2013 and 2012. It was my understanding that my CE requirement was 4 hours. (Thanks to the NATP NY chapter for clarifying the 4 courses I had to take.)
Is my understanding of the requirements correct?
(Yes - I've left it to the last minute - but when I saw that they were having systems problems I thought my inability to complete the registration process was the problem they were trying to correct!) Never assume.

I have become concerned regarding email hacking and overall computer security. I am looking for more than software, possibly a firm that could address issues/concerns. Has anyone used a firm within the NYC metro area that they would recommend?

I recently participated in an Ultra Tax Annual Update Webinar Class and it was mentioned that NYS will not process an E-File return unless the taxpayer(s) enter a driver's license number or an ID card number. I can not find anything further on this. Is this true... Is it optional.

Once you get through a NYS online learning video and answer all the questions, it asks for your name and something else to verify your participation.
Does anyone know what that other piece of data is?
I cant get back into the system due to technical difficulties, but my recall says they ask for an OSN or OLS ??? I was thinking maybe Online Services Number, but I don't see anything like that in my online services account. And looking at my online services account window kicked me out of the video and I lost all my lovely correct answers.
Thanks much for any assist, as I cant get through to NYS, of course!

While calling the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance this morning (12/30) for technical help, the message indicated that the department has extended the due date to meet our continuing education requirements from 12/31 to 1/30/2016. I am assuming it will be through the same format, but maybe someone has better information.

NYS just released its list of education to meet their requirement of four credits. These are NOT offered by the Chapter. Sadly, if you hold a NYTRIN, you are required to take these classes. Check out http://www.tax.ny.gov/tp/reg/cont_ed_req.htm

Resident taxpayer is moving to PA and does 1031 exchange of NY farm property with PA farm property. Will the gain on the sale of the NY property be taxable in NY or will it be deferred because of the 1031 exchange?

I have a taxayer and spouse who are both resident of NY state. She works for NYC and lives in NYC. He works and lives outside the city. They file a joint federal return. How do I file the NYS return and the NYC return? Do they file a joint NYS return and she files separately for NYC? If the later is the way to file, what form do I use? And will they lose the education credit for NY if the file separate returns for NY.

Due to having open heart surgery and an additional surgery on my groin, I was not physically able to attend your WNY Tax review session. I was wondering why you only schedule one session in Buffalo (Amherst, NY) this year. I know that you will say that there was a session in Rochester, NY. However circumstances prevent members from attending distance sessions. Therefore, how can I get CPE credits for NYS Tax Changes?

Wondering if NYS resident with IRC Sec 1231 gain (sale of residential real estate with IRC Sec 1250 nonrecapture portion as well) must follow NYS/NYC IT-215 Line 2 instructions (see below) so that EIC for NYS/NYC is disallowed when including 1231 gain as "Investment Income" for IT-215 purposes (strict use of IRS 1040 line 13 amount) but it is excluded per Fed EIC worksheet so Fed EIC is generated ?
"Line 2 – You cannot claim the New York State and New York City
earned income credits if your investment income is more than
$3,350. For most people, investment income is the total amount of:
– taxable interest (from line 8a of federal Form 1040 or 1040A);
– tax-exempt interest (from line 8b of federal Form 1040 or 1040A);
– ordinary dividends income (from line 9a of federal Form 1040 or
– capital gain net income from line 10 of Form 1040A or line 13 of
Form 1040 (if more than zero).
For additional information on what qualifies as investment income,
see federal Publication 596, Earned Income Credit."
Thanks for your feedback ! Appreciate any insights or tax software treatment experiences involving this.
