Re: Can I use Free H&R Block online to file my taxes if my taxable income is more than $99,999?

Now it is ready to be filed and I checked it - all the forms seem to be present (form 1040, schedule A, Schedule B + NY 201 form for state filing).

No you can't. A quick google search reveals this. Bogleheads is not the best place to get fast answers to questions of this nature that can readily be found on the web. I googled my issue several times but didn't find any answer nor any mention of a $99,999 limit to file for free on H&R block. Coul...

Can I use Free H&R Block online to file my taxes if my taxable income is more than $99,999?

Hi I'm filing my 2017 taxes through HRBlock website. It advertises that fed & State returns are free for simple returns (including 1040 Form with schedule A). My return is very simple - 1040 Form with schedules A & B only. I completed the info using the free version, and at some point during the pro...

Re: Roth IRA - Income Limit question for Self Employed with individual 401K

Hello Spirit Rider, I found the MAGI definition on this website: "http://www.rothira.com/roth-ira-com-financial-glossary#MAGI" So neither the 50% of Self employment tax deducted nor the EmployER and EmployEE contributions to a Solo 401 K would need to be added back to calculate the MAGI for Roth IRA...

Roth IRA - Income Limit question for Self Employed with individual 401K

Re: Tax implications of marriage for Self employed (1099) marrying an employee (W2)

The backdoor into Roth IRA is used by folks with higher income (higher tax brackets) whose income is too high to allow f...
