Re: Alternatives to Quicken

I run the Apple provided bootcamp software on my Mac... you need a windows license to go with it... but then you boot up in Windows when you need it, otherwise into Mac

Re: 2012 Backdoor Roth Turbo Tax issues

you can use the interview... first do the non deductible IRA... then tell it you did the Roth conversion.
