​Hello members,

I am looking for help with Estate and Trust tax returns preparation. Two of my clients' relatives are passed, and I need to prepare the final 1040, estate, and trust tax returns. Can anyone guide me since I am doing that a first time? I want to make sure I get it right.

Thank you in advance!​​

I had request an account transcript for a client but when it came it did not have the EIN numbers of any of the companies who reported income given to her.  When did, why di they stop included these important numbers when lost w2 and 1099 ?​

I am preparing a DC return.  The taxpayer shares an apartment with 2 other people.  Each of them file a DC tax return.  Can they each get the $1000 renters credit if their income is less than $50K?  Just wanted to make sure that they don't have to split this credit between the 3 of them.  Thank you!​

​I've had a tax practice in the MD/VA/DC area since 1989 and I'm looking to retire. I have about 100 individual tax clients, 10 non-profits and some corporate and partnership clients. Most of my client's returns are fairly basic although I do a few complicated returns. I'm looking for someone who is very good in tax work and wants to expand their practice. I would be willling to phase in over the next year to accomodate a smooth transition. Many of my clients hae been with me for decades and I really care about the service that I give them. I use Drake software.

Please contact me if you have any interest.

​I have been doinf taxes for over 20 years and it seems that more and more clients new and old have decided to claim more exemption then they can claim at the end of the year and are paying less tax into both the state and federl systems.  I have been warning them that the IRS can and is asssessing a under payment penalty and in one client's case forced the employer to not allow  him to claim exempt from taxes box could not be checked.  Has everyone seen an increase in these same clients?

​Will Maryland State be sending out any guidelines on filing amended returns?  Since the case went to 2006 can I file my clients amended returns back to that year?
