Dear lady,

Can i ask the nature of your question?

Customer: replied 9 years ago.
I need to know how to fill out form 1040 Schedules A, B, D, & E and form 8283
Are you using tax software, if so what kind?
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
Yes TaxAct 2005

DearCustomer

Are these 2005 taxes?

Look, I thing the forms are self explanitory,and it is hard to tell someone in this venue how to fill out line by line forms. It would take a few hours work.

If you were to purchase a year specific download of Turbo Tax, Turbo TAx provides all the forms, and has a mode for a person with little knowledge of income tax, that ask you questions and talk you through a line by line process. The cost of the software becomes tax deductablel to you.

Turbo tax even gives you examples. For instance, it will suggest what expenses are included as rental expenses for the approprate place where you input rental expenses.

I do not work for or sell turbo tax. I have used Turbo TAx since 1995, and I have always gotten great refunds, and have never been audited.

Please review the return HERE.

If you need any small correction - HERE is a TaxAct file.

Customer: replied 9 years ago.
Dividend does not specify, just says Dividend from David Corp stock $700.
Rental f a condominimum in Lutsen: Rental Income (30 days) $12,000
In 2002, Brandon had loaned a friend $3,000 to help pay medical bills. During 2005, he discovers that his "friend" has skipped town.

That is all the information I have. Does that help?
  • I assumed that dividend are ordinary (because it was not specified otherwise)
  • there is $12,000 rental income on the schedule E
  • "the lost loan" may not be deducted as casual losses unless a legal action would take place.

So far I do not see any reason for change.
