Default Yup, Tax Season is almost over

So first customer of the day at the tax place. Made me giggle so hard I had to take a break and share.

Customer only had $3000 in income, but tried she to claim $9000 in rent. That is an immediate red flag in my brain. She also said not in subsidized housing or living with anyone.

I ask her if she worked off the books anywhere? Nope. Any odd jobs around town? Her reply:
"Well, they usually don't want to go out. They just come to my house for an hour then leave"
She gets the "OH $hit" look. My Coworker's eyes go .
Customer grabs her stuff and starts to run out. The made me call out "You can claim that on a schedule C and deduct your expenses" as the door closed.



------


We did have our customer come back with his "Hydroponics" business. Writing off items such as baggies.

Wouldn't the deductions start as the door opened?

Don't tell me, let me guess: Their net income is in the range for maximum earned income credit. Sounds like another candidate for the 3949-A.

Trust me, I have filed a couple 3949-A's this year. I was glad she did not file with us.
Damn hookers messing everything up for us.

As Al Capone learned, no matter the source, you need to declare ALL income.

The true sign of a pro? Never batting an eyelid regardless of the profession.

But she works behind the green door.
