Client is in her late thirties with a seventeen year old son. Son in school has a part time job-no idea about earnings but is smart enough to use an app to file and claim himself and short his mother the $500 ACTC.. She told me he is very private and will probably NOT let her see his return.
How about an ex-client who has her daughter use an app to file mom's return. Mom is pestering daughter to file the return while daughter is multi-tasking. Daughter enters the W-2 not once but twice into the app and Mom now owes about $7,000-wait for it-and they file it anyway. TT says she can amend return using the app on Friday March 5th. I tell her we can amend maybe by March 25th--I don't even want to mention a superseded return. Is it any wonder sometimes I hate children!
"Are some of my clients dumber that dirt"
More than I care to admit to😢
But then again, some of those clients are still brighter than some of the rocket scientists posting questions here.😀
