Runtime Errors with Combination of Office 365 and Relius Admin?

"Our office is upgrading to Office 365. Since upgrading we're getting memory and runtime errors with Relius Admin when trying to access census or transactions, run reports and tests. We on version 2021.0.0. My computer still has Office 2013 and I don't have any issues. We've contacted Relius and they are not aware of any issues. Is anyone else using Office 365 and Relius Admin? Are you having any problems?"

Did the Death Rate Skyrocket in 2021?

"The CEO of OneAmerica Life insurance company said in 2021 deaths were up 40%. The most in history he said. It was surprising because I had heard death claims were up 1.5%. He said all life insurance companies have experienced the same increase. Does anyone have information that refutes or supports this 2021 statistic?"

1065 Schedule K-1 -- Do Any of the Changes Affect TPAs?

"Does any of this actually affect what we do as TPAs? Will CPAs need anything new from us due to the following? (I'm thinking the answer is no.) I just received an invitation to a webinar that says the following:

On recent IRS Forms 1065, Schedules K-1 and in related instructions, IRS launches massive reporting requirements re: negative tax basis capital accounts, at-risk activities, passive activities, partner level built-in gains, disregarded entities and many more.

We can't wait to be a deer in the headlights preparing Form 1065 and Schedules K-1. In this action packed program, you'll learn:

Course Outline
