In this tax paying year I had four different jobs in three different states; therefore, I believe I need a good tax professional to help me file my taxes. My problem is that I do not know how to find one and what will make a good tax professional "good".
I'm looking to build a long term relationship with a tax professional. The H&R Block people don't care and skip jobs too quickly. The older specialist are mostly jerks that charge too much. Is there anything in the middle?
I currently have a full-time job making about $24,000/year. I am starting a 2nd job, part-time, making about $5,000/year. I claim 1 exemption at my full-time job, and usually get a refund of $300-$400 from the IRS. Should I claim 0 exemptions at the part-time job to avoid owing taxes at the end of the year? Or will I likely be safe claiming 1 exemption?
I can't afford to seek the advice of a tax professional; hence, the reason I'm getting a 2nd job.
What kind of professional jobs does it get paid at least $7000 per month?
(before eliminating from the taxes)
Except doctor, lawyer, professors, accountants, pharmacy, MBA etc.
i'm talking about starting salary
I am using TurboTax, but am not confident I am doing things right. I have had multiple jobs in the last year, one of which was overseas. I was thinking of taking my taxes to a tax professional, but am wondering around what I will have to pay. Anyone know if they use a flat rate, percentage of your refund, etc?
I've been with my g/f for 11 years. We aren't going anywhere. We both have professional jobs now and I'm wondering if we should get married for tax purposes. Please no preaching about other reasons we should get married, I just want to hear the financial angle.
I have been married for 28 years and choose to stop working to take care of the household. my wife has a professional job with good income. we have done this for 7 years now. when ever we get a car loan, bank account, taxes, etc. II list myself as a homemaker. they always change it to unemployed. I am not unemployed I choose not work and take care of domestic duties at home for my household. why is this a problem?
I am 25 and just started my new professional job, and the company I am with offers matching up to 10?f my annual salary. I went ahead and decided for them to deduct 10?ut of my pay for this purpose (so I'll get 20?nnually), but with student loans to pay, and tons of taxes being taken out, I am wondering if this much is really necessary. What is the normal percentage someone at my age should save per year in order to have a secure retirement plan?
Can a prepaid cell phone used for a business phone be deducted as a business expense or should it just be a personal expense? It's impossible to put it in the business name because it doesn't have an account like a postpaid. Business use is also against the prepaid TOS, but this is a sideline business start-up and the call volume was fairly low.
The confusing part is this business only made me $1,500 last year which I reported with last year's taxes and income from my full time job. I had a tax professional handle it and he didn't say anything but I didn't claim any deductions. I didn't figure $1,500 was worth it. If you really want to know, my expenses were over $3,000, but I didn't see any point in claiming more than I made and I wanted to make it look like I was making money.
My dad said it looked fishy that I didn't have any expenses associated with my business and this year I need to report all my expenses. I'm working on my monthly expenses and wasn't sure if I should be putting my prepaid cell phone down as a business expense or not. The phone is only so customers can call me, I have another phone for personal calls.
From December 2010 to December 2011, the economy added 1.6 million jobs as reported by the department of labor. And the major categories go as follows:
Health care: 315,000
Leisure (including bars,restaurants, and all that) 230,000
Professional/Business services 400,000
How do I know how many of these jobs were a direct result of the stimulus? Did a lot of stimulus money go into healthcare?
How did the stimulus create professional jobs?
What about the leisure and hospitality? Did people use Obama's social security tax breaks to go out to restaurants and bars more often than they used to?
If the stimulus created these jobs, God bless Obama. I'm just trying to figure out if another stimulus would help.
I really thought those energy tax credits for installing energy efficient windows would help, but the company who installed my energy efficient windows 2 years ago is now out of business.
I did leave out those unemployment claims, which are not counted against the jobs created.
I am very interested in taxation and I would like to know from present or previous tax professionals how was there experience? Providing your educational background would be greatly appreciated, and giving your insight about the field will be helpful. I would like to know the clean truth about the profession without leaving out unpleasant experiences.
Are there any companies that hire crocheters? I don't have the resources to go into business for myself, and I won't qualify for assistance. Are there still any professional crocheting jobs here, or are they all pretty much overseas with the rest of the garment district? Most crocheters that I know of have a primary job and crochet a little for charity, but I would like to do it as my primary job and get paid for it.
Can someone whose case has been denied in 2001 and received deportation letter, have any chance to be reviewed and reconsidered for residency?
The person has professional job, 7 digit income, pays huge tax, has been here since late 1997, has big network of family and friends, and clean background. Could not go back to the original country for political reasons and threat of life, but could not find an honest attorney either to attend to the court on time...
Can't this person who has had a life time in this country, whose love and friends are around be given a second chance?
It seems as though Career Builder and Monster suck big time. The only phone calls you get are from temp agencies, not actual real jobs. What is the best tool to use to find a really good job. I just graduated with a B.B.A. and I would like to find a good professional job, not some job making $10/hr. Now I'm not saying that I want to start off making a six figure income. I think a good start would be $40,000 a year for a college grad.
It seems to be pretty terrible in many sectors
What is wrong with Obama, he keeps saying he is creating jobs, but all the jobs he's creating are labour Jobs, where are the professional jobs?
My after tax income (including bonus and interest income) is approximately US$325K per month. I am a professional and my job is relatively steady (been with the same company for more than 5 years). What percentage of my after tax income should I be saving (either for retirement or a rainy day)? Obviously, it is better to save as much as possible. But I guess I want to know what percentage is a prudent guideline. Thanks
That keep American R&D, manufacturing, and engineering jobs here? Why are so many people opposed to American professionals having jobs just so some company can increase their bottom line by hiring some foreigner to work at rates as low as 5 dollars per day?
HOW MUCH CAN THEY MAKE WORKING FOR SOMEONE AND FOR THEMSELVES? IS THIS JOB DIFFICULT? IS JOB SIMILAR OR DIFFERENT FROM BEING A CPA? WHAT'S THE 411?
