9/2     I'm young, and stupid. Does the IRS want reporting on 401K, IRA,
        Roth 401k/IRA? I am decades from retiring, and no plan to withdraw
        anything. But, I just realized that I haven't reported any of my
        retirement plans to IRS for several years, now wondering if I'm
        in big shit...
        \_ The account custodian (bank/brokerage/mutual fund) reports it to
           the IRS anyway.  Just start doing it from now on.
           Use TurboTax or a professional. Not a big deal like misreporting income
           or failing to pay tax.

           \_ ok cool THANK YOU! You're right, it's not like I'm failing
              to pay taxes. I'm guess this kind of stuff is more important
              as I approach retirement in a few decades.

4/19    W-4 withholding question.  For those who are married with combined
        salaries of 2 x $100K, about how many allowances do you put on your
        W-4?  It seems like the computation method on the back of the form
        omits the deduction of state taxes, and I end up putting down 0
        allowances and withhold an extra $9K.  Let's say there is no mortgage
        interest deduction or significant investment income.  Thanks.

5/4     Can the money spent on taking community college or UC extension
        courses be deducted from my taxable income if they weren't part
        of any degree program?
        \_ No. I was in this same situation (taking some language
           classes in the morning before work just for the sake of
           learning) and I remember TurboTax saying it was only

1/24    I am single not married no itemized deduction. My income is
        about 90K and I pay about 30.0% tax (both federal and state).
        Does that sound about right?
        \_ Buy a house, stupid.
        \_ I think at 90k, you should be itemizing.
        \_ ~ 30% is what I pay, and I made $90K and am single.

10/10   My parents are buying an apartment outside of the US for
        their retirement and I am going to help them to pay for part of
        the down payment (over $10,000).  What is the best way to gift
        the money to them?
        \_ You can buy an apartment with only $10K down? What planet,
           I mean, what country is it?

5/20    These obscure and complicated US tax laws are really annoying.
        I just discovered that this 5-bagger stock (crxl: $3.67-$19) I bought
        is classified as PFIC (passive foreign investment company).  I would
        presume the law is made for foreign mutual funds but unfortunately,
        it also hits foreign biotech companies with lots of raised cash, but
        little earnings.  So now instead of a capital gains rate, I have to

4/4     Is there a Home & Business version of TurboTax this year?  There was
        one last year but I don't see one this year.

3/21    Does the TurboTax CD this year let you pirate it onto more than one
        machine?
        \_ I have it, althought I havn't tried it on another machine, I don't
           see anything that will prevent you from doing it...
           \_ Last year there was some protection scheme that prevented one
              from doing it.

3/9     Anyone have a promotion code for a Turbotax State discount?
        Federal's free this year, but it'd be a shame to have to pay full
        price for State.
        \_ Promotion code?  I had to pay to download.  Then I submit a
           rebate form to cover the price.  Did that last year too, probably
           the year before that too.  Used to be it came as an .exe that

2/2     (Re-post) Are any of you full-time grad students on fellowship at
        UC Berkeley? If so, I am curious how you are interpreting the info on
        your 1099-T. TurboTax is useless here. -- ulysses
        \_ I'm in grad school and got a 1098-T.  I wonder what the difference
           is.
        \_ Give your copy to me if its useless to you. :)

2/1     Do any of the full time grad students here have a good way to work
        through taxes? My wife (a full time PhD candidate) just received her
        1099-T and we are both at a loss as to how to determine what is
        taxable and what isn't. TurboTax assumes one already knows this.
