Someone has offered to sell me a used vehicle using eBbay motors.

This person is out of state and says that the car will be shipped at no cost to me in California and that I will them have 5 days to evaluate the vehicle and return if it I so choose.

I am going to be getting an invoice emailed to me within the next few days and the vehicle will then be shipped to me.

However, in the meantime I would like to do further research.

This vehicle will be shipped 1500 miles to me. In order for me to purchase it it will need to pass the California smog check so it can be registered to me.

I will also be taking this car to my mechanic to have it checked out to make sure everything is OK with it.

If there are any problems like it can't pass smog, needs to have repairs done so it will pass smog, or if my mechanic finds any issues with it I need to be sure I will be getting most of my money back from eBay motors if I choose to return this vehicle.

Please provide me with the URL address that explains eBay motors' policy for these things.

Hi
Every one of the last 3 or 4 credit cards I've had, I've had to close due to fraud and purchases I didn't make.
I think the first few test to see if I notice, and then they don't hold back.
I was lucky that today, I decided to see if anything suspect was occurring.
I got billed by the Freedom Road Socialist Organization. !

How are they breaking me?

I strongly suspect Uber of being massively hackable, I use them almost every day.
Thanks

Now that the Intuit Turbo tax software has been released I'm looking to purchase the software now so I can get a better idea of how much I will owe in taxes for this year especially since I am currently working on a 1099 basis and haven't had any tax deductions made since July of this year.

My income taxes for the United States and California are from two employers, one of which I was paid using a W2 basis and the other one in which I am being paid using a 1099 basis.

I own my home and understand that technically I am considered to be self employed and as such want to get as many deductions as possible from my home mortgage interest, from improvements made to my home/home business, from my vehicle which I use to travel to my customer site, and from anything else I have spent on my business.

Normally I would file my taxes online at https://turbotax.intuit.com/ but Turbo Tax support has told me that returns for this year will not be able to be started on this website until the second week of January 2018. I need to get an idea now of how much I will owe in taxes based upon what I have already earned and what I am projected to earn for the rest of this year.

So will it be best for me to purchase Turbo Tax Basic, Turbo Tax Deluxe, or Turbo Tax Home & Business so I can claim the most deductions and credits?

What are some websites I can visit where I can calculate the differences in monthly interested paid and total interest paid on a 30 year mortgage of $220,000 with either a 4.25% or a 3.625% interest rate?

I have other similar scenarios I would like to calculate.

I have read on the http://ficoscore.com/education/ website that "Between all three bureaus, there are 19 FICO® Scores that are most commonly used by lenders. The score version that matters most to you depends on the type of loan you’re interested in and where your lender pulls your scores. You can use the chart below as a guideline."

Are there any websites I can visit that will provide me with all of my current 19 FICO® Scores?

The websites I currently visit like Bofa.com, discover.com, and the credit bureau websites provide only one version of the Fico credit scores and I'm interested in seeing what my current 19 FICO® credit scores are.

What websites or services will allow me to do this?

HI Experts,

I have been using QB Desktop 2012 until recently, but noticed that I could not open my previous HST filings. I thought that this was because of the  old version of QB and I am running Windows 10, so I decided to migrate to QBO.

QBO's view is more extended and I see that all of the HST periods (from and to) are off. I file quarterly, but see that I have periods sometimes for 1 month. Actually as I was filing using QB for desktop I always printed my summary, and the periods on the printouts all are correct.

I have chatted many times with Intuit, but the issue does not seems to be resolved.  Now in QBO when I click "View Summary" for any period listed, I see my header, but nothing else. No line numbers, no amounts, just blank report.

One rep told me that I need to request for my HST periods to be reopened, which I did, then refile withing QBO.  When I go to refile, starting with my very first periods, only my Sales (line 101) is correct, and everything else is $0.00 - probably because everything is paid.

I am now thinking that my QB file was corrupted from my desktop version, but any idea how to fix this? Who can I contact?

As a developer - And, I don't want to do this, but is it possible to get backend access through API or even SQL and maybe adjust the periods manually - maybe that will fix everything? Or is there another versions of QB that I can run that will give me SQL access?

Or am I pretty much in trouble and need to open a new company …

I have a potential customer that is looking to expand -they are currently using Sage 50 Quantum Accounting on one system - if they wanted to go to a multi-user, what options are available?  One search I saw was that you could either have 1 user or would have to jump to 5 users, is this correct?

What are the tax implications for being paid on a 1099 (All Inclusive) basis?

Does this mean that I as the employee will have to pay both my share as well as the employer's share of the social security tax?

Are there any other additional or higher taxes that have to be paid by me while being paid on a 1099 basis as opposed to a W2 basis?

I have recently published Sage50 on a Windows 2012 R2 and I'm running on an untypical issue, apparently Sage50  calls a dependency called sagemrg.exe which gives me the 1st picture attached below, this message comes up on the very first attempt to connect to the remote app then the screen closes by itself and then when I try to invoke the app again I get to the main Sage50 screen just normally as picture 2 shows attached. Any ideas on how to solve this?

Hi,

I have been using Excel (Google Sheets) to manage my accounts / balance sheet for the last number of years.

- income with Tax breakdown on the left
- expenses with Tax breakdown on the right
- totals at the bottom

It works well for me, however I'm slightly concerned over how easy it is to update a cell in error with '10' vs '10000' without recognising it.

Can anyone recommend any software that provides the following:

- easy interface
- export for backup
- ability to duplicate line items (recurring expenses and income) so that when a recurring payment lands in my bank account, i can duplicate a previous record and update the date
- add note to each line item

Additional Benefits
- app
- receipt management

Thanks in advance for your help.

My credit score has greatly improved and the value of my home has also skyrocketed compared to how much is left on my current mortgage.

I would like to refinance my current mortgage and also draw money through a home equity line of credit to pay off other higher interest rate debt.

What are some good banks, credit unions, or financial institutions for doing this?

I use the Neat company program, version 5.7. It has been working great, but after a backup, I can no longer open program. I get the "Neat has stopped working message" I tried to remove software and re-install to no avail. I attached the Neat log for reference. Any advise is appreciated.

Neat no longer supports this software as the have launched the cloud based program. I prefer to continue with the old software as I do not like my data on the cloud.

I also tried to restore systems. It seems all my restore points are corrupted. I ran a combo fix and would appreciate some advise on the outcome.

Is there a chart or article or rule of thumb for consulting rate differentials?
If a consultant gets paid $X dollars per hour on a W-2 basis, what does that translate to on a 1099 basis?
Is it 50% more? 2% more?  I'm interested in the higher-tax states like NY, NJ, CT, CA
I realize that state and city taxes factor into this so perhaps there might be a chart with various states/locales listed.

Two problems have cropped up on every workstation that I've installed the tax1099.com QB plugin.  Every workstation is either running Premier or Enterprise, both are running the 2016 version.  

1) Ability to access mapped drives vanishes.  Rebooting the computer sometimes once or twice seems to fix this problem, but after a couple of days, QB will stop seeing the mapped drives.  Uninstall the plugin, and the problem vanishes for good.  Re-install the plugin, the problem comes back right away.   If I'm working in an office with 5 computers, one or two may lose the ability to connect to the mapped drive while the rest are OK.  You can ALWAYS access the mapped drive via run, CLI, and My Computer.  The next day, it might be another computer that loses access.  It seems random when the problem crops up.  

2) The next problem is that eventually, QB will stop running.  Event Viewer will show a 1000 error.  Running the QB repair tool works sometimes, uninstalling the plugin never helps, but occasionally I have to do a complete un/reinstall of the QB software, which includes reinstalling the Tax1099.com plugin, which brings back the problem I addressed in number one.

I need someone who can figure out how to delete a "condensed" Journal Entry in QB and provide a utility to do this.  If you do not know what this type of entry is, please do not respond.

Hi Game programmers/ web / financial people who generally know about this kind of thing..

I saw an email for an opportunity to take online surveys and receive compensation.
Sounds too good to be true?

Anything that I have to provide credit card / banking information is a red flag consideration, right?
