Watch it judge. Nothing wrong with my golf game that 10 years of rolling back the clock couldn't cure. Wasn't that long ago when I could reach a short par four (wind aided) in 1 (and probably 3 putt) or be set up for eagle putts on par 5's. Those days seem to be gone, in spite of way better equipment.

These days I watch my son hit a driver and an 8 iron to a par 5, and I lay up short with a driver and a hybid 4. When I beat him it's by playing smarter, cause the distance thing is out of the question. I can still pull a few 38's and 39's, but they're getting fewer and farther between. Sadly, I'm falling into the stage of life where I take more pleasure in the surroundings and the company than the golf.

That said, if you'd like to play for paychecks, meet me for a round at Angles Crossing in mid-July. 04-cheers

I said the exact same thing to my wife. 03-idea

I would love to play golf with you one day Dip; however, I dont gamble much, and when I do it is because I have the unfair advantage. I am satisfied with anything in the 40's for nine, and delighted with low 40's. If you can even think about scoring in the 30's, you are well beyond my level. So no bets. My wife grabs my check anyway, and just gives me what I need to get by.

RE: Turbotax
You wouldn't want my paycheck anyway. And I've never shot lower than 41 from the whites at Angles, so 30's won't happen there. Now States Golf Course up the street, then we might both break 40. Fairways like runways.

I pay all of the online bills which is the vast majority. So I just transfer most of her paycheck into my account and tell her.........."Lot of bills this pay period Hon. Make sure you go easy on the spending." 03-shhhh

I keep trying to teach her online banking, paying bills online, etc. She prefers writing checks and living in the dark ages.

I'm still concerned that I might I have some oversights. At the end it accesses your risk of audit and it was virtually nothing (probably in the category of random audits).

My question. Has anyone here filed (itemized) through Turbotax, and did everything go smoothly?

Use TurboTax Premier every year. Have rental properties back in Michigan and have also claimed a home office. No problems over many years.

RE: Turbotax
I've used it every year since 2001 and have never had an issue. Been itemizing since we bought a house and it's worked great. No complaints here.

Also, search around, you can usually find links/codes that'll save you a decent chunk of change (30% or more) off the cost.

RE: Turbotax
I suppose the accountant should chime in here....

I've been a CPA for 6 years now and I advise all of my family to use turbo tax.

There have been some friend of mine that have come to me as well for itemized taxes and I tell them to just take the time to learn it themselves through Turbo Tax.

Unless you have some really complicated tax situations, are really lazy, or just really stupid... you should do them yourselves.

And with all the the tax software I've seen, TurboTax is by far the best and the easiest.

RE: Turbotax
All a CPA is is a license to sign off on an audit of a public company, really nothing to do with taxes though many Americans think it does. That doesn't mean you have to have a CPA to work on an audit, just sign. I was stunned to find out how many audit managers at accounting firms didn't even have the designation.

Audits can crop up years later... but I wouldn't sweat it. If you were honest you shouldn't have any problems.

The ADVANTAGE to using an accountant is that they will often meet with the IRS for you if you are audited from a return they filed. That doesn't mean they're responsible (unless it was their mistake) for any fees, penalties or criminal charges you'd face.
