I would love for tax professionals to talk about tax topics and tax questions in more of a technical manner. I feel r/tax are more for random people to ask their situational tax questions whereas /r/TaxPros should be a learning subreddit for tax professionals like myself, even if it is a tax question among the other firm procedures, policies, etc..

Thanks, was struggling with this since it would not let me e-file without Form 8997. I'm assuming I will also file form 8997 in 2021 when the it was actually invested; do I fill out Part 1 or Part 4 in that year? Thank you again for the help!

THANK YOU! I was able to update my iPhone X with NO issues but I had problems updating with my 2018 iPad Pro. It was unable to find the 14.3 update, it would always say "Unable to check for Update" \- Enabled OTA Daemon in iCleaner Pro \- RootFS with both Odyssey and unc0ver \- Tried to check on / off the OTA in unc0ver to see if it makes a difference. Unfortunately, I updated to the newest iPad OS 14.4.2 (something like that), I guess I can't do anything for it unless someone can help me. \- I only saw the OTAEnabler recently AFTER I updated because I tried almost everything I could think of searching through these forums a few days ago...=(

Please let me know if there are any special rules for filling it out. Per my software vendor and looking at the instructions I filled out the 8949 with the proper code Z however my EIN for the QOF was unavailable so I used 99-999999. On Schedule D, I show the stock sales and the adjustments were made Part 1, Line 3 (Negative amounts). Do I need to attach an itemized schedule of the stock that was used for the QOF fund? What other procedures do I need to do? I'm assuming after the QOF is invested do you give clients a schedule (after 5 years the 10% basis adjustment, the phantom income in 2026, and the 5% basis adjustment in 7 years)?

So on 8949 you reflect the QOZ in 2020 with Code Z but 2021 I file the 8997 because it was invested during that year just to summarize what you are saying. I think that makes more sense because the purpose of QOZ is deferral.

All you do is ask the client at year end to provide you the insurance amount and be done with it. If they get it wrong that is their problem, you aren't required to audit it and can reasonably rely on the client's figures.

That's usually for prior year & maybe current year excess contributions if you do that before the tax due date deadline. How about prior years like 2-3 years ago?

When you restore rootfs do most people do a backup at that time or is there a way to delete only the jailbreak files and backup everything else? My understanding is if you do it before there are jailbreak remnants in the backup which may cause some issue.

Marjorie Taylor Greene: When Greene was elected, she has shown support for QAnon, where she mentioned in videos and written in blog posts... QAnon’s conspiracy theories echo the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” the source of one of the most enduring antisemitic conspiracy theories in history, which proposes that a secret group of Jews controls the world, and also references blood libel. Greene, on a now defunct site called American TruthSeekers, wrote that Q is a “patriot.” She also wrote that the secret, Satanist cabal Q believes rules the world is funded by George Soros and the Rothschilds, both frequent targets of antisemitic allegations of global control and domination. Seth Rich - Rich was a Democratic National Committee staffer from a Jewish family. He was murdered in 2016, during what appeared to have been a botched robbery. Conspiracy theories arose soon after his death, including baseless claims that his death was a political assassination committed by Democrats, following Rich’s supposed involvement with leaked DNC emails. Greene stated that Obama had Rich killedy by MS-13 street gang (https://www.mediamatters.org/seth-rich-conspiracy-theory/gop-backed-house-candidate-marjorie-taylor-greene-obama-administration) Promoting antisemitic and anti-muslim videos: A 2015 video, which appeared to be the result of a collaboration between 4chan and 8chan users — both message forums which lean heavily toward fringe conspiracy theories — spliced Barbara Lerner Spectre, an Israeli-American academic, out of context so that she appeared to be discussing a Jewish plan to destroy Europe. Greene shared the video in 2018, complaining that she had been censored from speaking about the issue of “illegal invaders.” Calling George Soros a Nazi: https://www.politico.com/news/2020/06/17/house-republicans-condemn-gop-candidate-racist-videos-325579 In videos unearthed by Politico, Greene goes on hourslong rants against Muslims, Democrats and Soros. Frustrated with his criticisms of Trump, Greene accused the billionaire Holocaust survivor of collaborating with Nazis and “[turning] in his own people over to the Nazis.” Later, she called Soros “the Nazi himself trying to continue what was not finished.” References to "Deep State" and open borders: Greene once alleged that a plane never hit the Pentagon on 9/11, instead stating that it was a missile. While she has now apologized for this statement, and said she now believes that it was a plane in a terrorist attack, her apology contains several antisemitic tropes. The Deep State is a conspiracy theory based on the antisemitic trope of a secret cabal; the terms “globalism” and “open borders” are both dog whistles for a white nationalist theory that Jews and other minorities are attempting to destroy white society Charlottesville was "inside job": http://web.archive.org/web/20180314090558/http:/americantruthseekers.com/police-charlottesville-an-inside-job/ in 2017, Greene theorized that James Alex Fields Jr., who drove his car into a crowd of peaceful counter-protestors at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, was actually a Democrat on the payroll of George Soros. She further alleged that Heather Heyer’s death was an inside job and that the entire neo-Nazi rally was a false flag operation to “further the agenda of the elites.” Space Lazers: In a recently uncovered Facebook post, Greene alleged that space lasers were responsible for the 2018 California wildfire known as the Camp Fire. The lasers, she said, were funded by the Rothschilds and were being used to clear forest for a high-speed rail line when they missed, sparking a fire. BLM Fact check on Anti-Semitism https://www.politifact.com/article/2020/aug/24/ask-politifact-black-lives-matter-anti-semitic/ -Black Lives Matter is more of a diverse movement than a top-down organization, so it’s difficult to flatly state what Black Lives Matter beliefs are. - More than 600 Jewish organizations have declared support for Black Lives Matter. - Some organizations affiliated with Black Lives Matter have expressed anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian sentiments that some Jewish groups view as anti-Semitic. You are correct about Nation of Islam but it is a religious organization not necessarily part of the "left movement" just because it seems pro-black. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation_of_Islam I don't know much about Black Hebrew Israelites to comment. There is anti-Semitism on the left, to be sure; most of it aimed at Israel but some revealed in language and attitudes toward American Jews as well. It is no historical anomaly that Jews, and perhaps only Jews, are excluded from the self-definition of both people of color and white supremacists. Jewish organization to track anti-Semitism in the Republican party. This would be a good place to see anti-Semitism in the GOP https://www.howtofightantisemitism.com/

While the president can fire other high-ranking executive officials at will, federal law bars the president from terminating the postmaster general under any circumstances. Biden can attempt to oust DeJoy indirectly, but that option is fraught with legal uncertainties, and certain to trigger Republican complaints of norm busting. Unless the president is willing to take a significant legal risk, DeJoy will remain in control for months or years to come. To oversee USPS’s activities, Congress established a nine-member board of governors who are nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate. No more than five members of the board may belong to the same political party. Once confirmed to the board, governors can only be removed by the president “for cause”; that means their jobs are safe unless the president can show that they engaged in malfeasance or extreme neglect of duty. The board of governors, in turn, selects the postmaster general, who is not subject to Senate approval. And once appointed, the postmaster general can only be removed by the board, though it need not justify its decision. This structure, in short, is why Louis DeJoy remains postmaster general under Biden. The board of governors is dominated by Trump appointees; Senate Republicans refused to confirm President Barack Obama’s nominees to the board, leaving vacancies that Trump promptly filled. Today, there are four Republicans and two Democrats on the board, plus three vacancies. One Democrat, Ron Bloom, is serving a holdover term which means Biden can replace him at any time. Thus, Biden can fill four seats on the board of governors—a move that would flip the board, giving Democrats a 5–4 majority. The new president can then urge the Democratic members to remove DeJoy, which they can do by a majority vote. Filling these vacancies is the simplest way for Biden to get rid of DeJoy, though there is no guarantee that it will actually work.

Republicans threaten reprisals if Democrats move to weaken the filibuster rules because this is one of the few tactics they can use. I think for now he is seeking a "talking filibuster" which requirements opponents of legislation occupy the floor and make their case rather than registering objections to force a 60 breaking vote which has been going on forever. The rationale is that when you require them to hold the floor it puts more burden on them and makes it harder to sustain opposition. You will most likely see opposition especially if it makes it harder for Republicans to filibuster rather than easier...

This was during a time when Trump was warning of a possible "major, major conflict" with North Korea.\[52\] The locations of nuclear submarines are a closely guarded secret, even from the Navy command itself. "As a matter of national security, only the captains and crew of the submarines know for sure where they're located."\[53\] On May 24, 2017, Britain strongly objected to the United States leaking to the press information about the Manchester Arena bombing, including the identity of the attacker and a picture of the bomb, before it had been publicly disclosed, jeopardizing the investigation.\[54\] British Prime Minister Theresa May issued a public rebuke, and British police said they would stop passing information to U.S. counterparts.\[55\] In July 2017, after a private meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin at the 2017 G20 Hamburg summit, Trump took the unusual step of confiscating and keeping his interpreter's notes. This led U.S. intelligence officials to express concern that Trump "may have improperly discussed classified intelligence with Russia."\[2\] On Christmas 2018, Trump and First Lady Melania Trump flew to Al Asad Airbase where Trump posted video to Twitter of several members of Seal Team Five in their camouflage and night-vision goggles, revealing the team's location and un-blurred faces.\[56\]\[57\] In 2020, the Airbase was the subject of an Iranian ballistic missile attack in retaliation for the killing of Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani in a U.S. airstrike a few days earlier. On August 30, 2019, Trump tweeted a reportedly classified image of recent damage to Iran's Imam Khomeini Spaceport that supposedly occurred as a result of an explosion during testing of a Safir SLV. Multiple concerns were raised regarding the public release of what appeared to be a surveillance photo with exceptionally high resolution, revealing highly classified U.S. surveillance capabilities.\[58\] Within hours of the tweet, amateur satellite trackers had determined the photograph came from National Reconnaissance Office spy satellite USA-224.\[59\] Before Trump's tweet, the only confirmed photographs from a KH-11 satellite were leaked in 1984 by a U.S. Navy analyst who went to prison for espionage.\[59\] Trump defended the tweet by saying he had "the absolute right" to release the photo.\[60\] In a December 2019 interview with Bob Woodward, Trump stated, "I have built a nuclear — a weapons system that nobody's ever had in this country before," adding, "We have stuff that Putin and Xi have never heard about before. There's nobody. What we have is incredible."\[61\]

[https://remember.org/](https://remember.org/) On the website, they talk about the gas chambers and reference original Nazi documents [https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/how-to-refute-holocaust-denial](https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/how-to-refute-holocaust-denial) IHR Says:No. A reward of $50,000 was offered for such proof, the money being held in trust by a bank, but no one came up with any credible evidence. Auschwitz, captured by the Soviets, was modified after the war, and a room was reconstructed to look like a large "gas chamber." After America's leading expert on gas chamber construction and design, Fred Leuchter, examined this and other alleged Auschwitz gassing facilities, he stated that it was an "absurdity" to claim that they were, or could have been, used for executions. Nizkor Replies:Regarding the $50,000 reward offer: it was paid, to the last cent (actually $90,000), to Mel Mermelstein, an Auschwitz survivor who took the IHR to court. Here is the statement made by the judge: The Honorable Thomas T. Johnson, on October 9, 1981, took judicial notice as follows: Under Evidence Code Section 452(h), this court does take judicial notice of the fact that Jews were gassed to death at the Auschwitz Concentration Camp in Poland during the summer of 1944 ... It just simply is a fact that falls within the definition of Evidence Code Section 452(h). It is not reasonably subject to dispute. And it is capable of immediate and accurate determination by resort to sources of reasonably indisputable accuracy. It is simply a fact. The IHR complains that they were not given a chance to dispute this fact, but then the American court system is not meant to be a place for people to try to prove crackpot theories. No "credible evidence" was produced because there was no call for it -- a courtroom is not the place to rehash the work of historians over the last half-century. Besides, "credible evidence" means only what Holocaust-deniers want it to mean. Michael Shermer, in an open letter, has offered to take the IHR up on a similar offer, but only if they precisely define ahead of time what they will accept as evidence. He has received no reply. (In fact, to date, his letter has not even been printed.) After this trial, both Mermelstein and the IHR sued each other for libel, but both decided not to go to court. The Holocaust deniers claim this is a "stunning victory" which "nullifies the result of the first trial." Nonsense: the two were unrelated, and the second trial would have had nothing to do with the gas chambers of Auschwitz. As with most legal proceedings, the details get quite complicated. Great detail, including copies of several official documents, is available in the FTP archives.

Since Epstein was Jewish he was controlling global affairs and his real name Sauron. Therefore his eyes could shoot laser beams which ultimately caused the CA wildfires...didn’t you see the verify that with a fact check from fake news?
