1099 + W2 question
Hi all, quick question... I usually do my taxes via turbo tax cause it's cheap and easy, this year I have 1099 income from contract work, about ~ 20% of our total income between wife and I. My question, is turbo tax premier or business (whatever it is), easy to use? I don't want to spend big bucks on an accountant as that kinda defeats the purpose of my having set up the S-corp in the first place, and they all seem to charge a lot for things I find really stupid easy.

Ionic Bonds vs Coordinate Covalent Bond

Why is BU considered low yield?
Okay, this is a semi-rhetorical question. It's obviously low yield because everyone and their dog wants to live in Boston, and most people don't have a realistic shot at Harvard, so BU (and Tufts) get close to 12,000 applications each. Attractive urban location+relatively low admitted stats=low yield school. But BU's stats aren't actually low at all. The mean accepted student's cGPA (per MSAR) is 3.81, the sGPA is 3.80, and the MCAT is 517. That's just a hair less selective than Einstein,... Why is BU considered low yield?
