If you run into an error adding multiple 1098-E, the student interest credits, there is an error. The fix is to temporarily change your filing status from "single" to "married filing jointly", and then using the "go to section" button to add the additional 1098-E. Once set, use "go to" to change it back to "single", and then step through the entire process by hitting "next" until you're back at the 1098-E step.

Had to call tech support on that one.
I had the same exact issue. I was getting frustrated as all hell. I just put in the one 1098-E with the most interest. The one I didn't put in only had $45 interest so not too worried.

I recently moved and I cannot find any of my tax paperwork from last year. Is there a way to file this if you don't have your info from last year, or is there a way to get your 2011 tax info online?

You can request a "Copies of Prior Year Federal Tax Return or Transcript" from the IRS http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Co...Transcript. If you request it by mail I believe it will take up to 3-4 weeks to arrive at your front door. Or if there's an IRS office around your area, you can just go there and request the tax's transcript (basically your tax return last year and such) from your IRS office. I did that a couple weeks ago because the financial aid office at my brother's school wanted to see his tax's transcript. Took like 20 mins to find the freaking office, 5 mins process lol. Hope that will help answering your question. Smilie

Weird. I paid back taxes to my state, but on the return it is giving me full credit for those taxes. The amount I paid is included in my refund.

That doesn't sound right. Why should my state refund taxes I owe them in a previous year?

I think I'll go see a live person about that one....

Will it work for almost 6 figures?
6 figures? If you mean 5 digits, that is, less than $100,000, than it certainly will. But if you AGI > $57K, you'll have to pay 'em to file.

Prepare taxes online like a pro

Quote :
If you live in states with high state income and property taxes (such as California, New York and New Jersey) make sure to run the Alternative Minimum Tax calculation on Form 6251. This especially important for married filers with adjusted gross income over $80,000 ($50,000 for single filers) who also claim significant itemized deductions or dependent exemptions. It's estimated that up to five percent of tax filers will get snagged with this additional tax. If you don't calculate this, the IRS will catch it and send you a notice for additional tax, interest and penalties.

Quote from omegaslast View Post :
Lots of people have already corrected you but it seems like theres plenty more where that came from. Whats with all the romneys on this forum? unfortunately not all of us were able to have our parents pay for college, and then employ us afterwards to run the business they started, or better yet just give us stocks to sell and call it our own money.
You sir will never make over $57k with that attitude...

If you're truly as poor as you're leading us all to believe then the world is lining up to give you federal loans and all sorts of grants. If you're a woman you're in an even better place. If you're non Caucasian then you basically have the coffers open to you.

Apply to a state school, fill out a FAFSA, get some federal Obamabucks at a fairly low interest rate all things considered, do well in your classes, pick a undergrad degree that will allow you to have a profitable career (not a job, not an art degree, not a communications degree), and rise above your poor poor life.

...and you have your Romney history wrong. His parents paid for college, they did nothing to employ him after. Just facts, not partisan claims like you're own.
