IRS ‘Free File Fillable Forms’ For 2021 (i.e., 2020 Tax Year) AGAIN Has A Negative Number Error In ‘Schedule D’ — Precludes eFile.

PANIC. This error is a SHOW STOPPER.

If you have to report short-term capital gain LOSSES on your Schedule D you are SCREWED.

Free File Fillable Forms‘ will NOT accept a negative number in column (d), i.e., Proceeds (sales prices). Yes, proceeds can be NEGATIVE. Smile. It can even be quite a BIG negative number. The IRS allows you to enter NEGATIVE numbers in these columns. You enter them in parenthesis.

Click to ENLARGE. Straight from the IRS. Schedule D instructions.


FFFF does NOT let you enter parenthesis. But, it lets you enter a NEGATIVE number with a MINUS in front.

The problem is that the eFile XML checker has an ERROR. I hate XML. Can’t believe that they still use XML. XML is a bloody joke.

Well, you have to print the return & mail it. This will be the SECOND time eFile has not worked with FFFF.

‘Samsung Watch 3’ Finally Available On Amazon — 48-Hours After It Was On ‘Best Buy’.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access the brand new Amazon listing.


Click to ENLARGE. Google ‘shopping’ still wasn’t showing Amazon.


It was amusing & very obvious. ‘Samsung‘ gave ‘Best Buy‘ precedence — & no doubt ‘Best Buy’ would have had to pay for it dearly. But, they only appear to have got a 2-day head-start.

Amazon has just started listing it — offering more or less immediate shipping.

That is good. I refuse to buy items such as this from ‘Best Buy‘.

IRS ‘Free File Fillable Forms’ For 2020 (2019 Tax Year) Has A (Small) Error In ‘Schedule D’.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE images.



Do NOT panic.

It is NOT a showstopper.

It does not mess you up.

It prints OK.

So, the issue is that YOU put in $3000 and it AUTOMATICALLY puts the MINUS in front, though it is a field in ‘parenthesis’, i.e., already negative. So, we have a DOUBLE negative.

But, this error isn’t carried over to the 1040. That is good.

Also prints OK.

So do NOT panic.

Enjoy. Happy 2019 Taxes. Smile.

‘Free File Fillable Forms’ For 2018 Federal Tax Returns (With Latest Forms) Now Available At IRS.gov.

by Anura Guruge


Click image to access the ‘FFFF’ gateway … you have to register.


Yes! YeS! YES!

I just love ‘Free File Fillable Forms‘ — from the IRS, available to ALL, for FREE.

I have been using it, with GREAT SUCCESS, for the last 7 years (if not more). It works like a treat and every year they refine it a bit more to make it even better.

Yes, the 2018 ‘tax reform’ has messed things up and complicated matters BUT you can still get around. I just started today. Looks good. I am happy. Enjoy/

Helps if you have a printed set of IRS ‘1040’ instructions handy.
