Why do I ever take advice to find my answer on the message board.

Don't have time for 10... but here're the TOP 5 reasons...

5) Because people like me have too much time to burn or we love tax too much to spend our personal time on things unrelated to tax;

4) Intuit support does not answer tax technical questions;

3) You want objective validation of your observation from other users and you may not get that from Intuit Support;

2) Peers on this board may have workarounds you can use because, just like you, they need an immediate resolution and cannot wait for Intuit to fix a software problem;

And NUMBER ONE (drum roll........)

1) YOU answered your own question: https://accountants-community.intuit.com/questions/1691256-is-anyone-in-proseries-getting-fired-for-...

What question are you looking for an answer to? Phone support is staffed by employees, the Accountant's Community (here) is other users like yourself.

I think  "Check the message board" means "Ask your question there or see if someone else has asked the same question and it was answered."

This place is for folks helping other folks - without any pay and without many thanks.  If you feel that you are not getting the answers you like you can always call support to talk to the people paid to help.

Given the last time you asked a question HERE was ten months ago, I don't think we are at fault.
