Hi from Just Answer. I'm PDtax. I am not the original Expert, but was notified by site management that you requested me.

If the responding expert will meet your needs, that's fine. If you instead want me to assist, please specify who you want to assist by name.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Hello, yes please PDTax, I did request you and would appreciate your help.

Expert:  PDtax replied 1 year ago.

OK. PDtax here. Can I help in the morning?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Hello. I can wait if it's necessary.

Expert:  PDtax replied 1 year ago.

Better if I can do this in the morning. It's 9:00 EST here. I'll work on this in the morning.

Expert:  PDtax replied 1 year ago.

The spreadsheet to do this is pretty involved. I will do this for you, but need to ask for a price increase.

Accept the posted Offer, and I'm right on it for you.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

First you ask me to be patient, meaning I need to wait for 12+ hours for a reply when you participate in a service that is all about fast answers. Then, after waiting all night, you ask for an additional $45.

No thanks.

Sorry we couldn't make a deal. I will opt out.
