Tax prep recommendations?

We're looking for a local experienced and capable tax preparer with fair and reasonable rates. Our 2017 joint returns will include Illinois and Wisconsin state tax filings, home selling & buying, a home-based business retirement, but otherwise pretty standard details. Thanks in advance for your recommendations.

  • I download my bank transactions into Quicken, compare my registers to items and identify, for example - "insurance premium" and then run category reports. I also have an XLS of all biz expenses by type....and then use TaxAct or TurboTax.

    I have a home based business and have used Steve Rabin at Core CPA in Northbrook for over a decade. It's just off the highway in Northbrook. Very reasonable prices for the work. I did interview reputable accountants in the surrounding neighborhoods here just last year. I wanted to have some other accountants look through my returns and I also wanted to compare prices. No one gave me nearly as good a price and all approved of how my accountant was doing my taxes. Steve also has a great manner about him. He's very warm and makes us feel like family.

Car break-in with no theft

Sometime last night or early this morning, our car was broken into and the glove box ransacked, but nothing appears to have been taken. We could have sworn we locked the doors, but they were all unlocked. Apparently, the same thing happened to a neighbor. Anyone else! This is near Glenwood and Winnemac.

Rental renewal

Just asking if your leasing company offers to renew you and you except. Can they come back and not renew your lease even thou sending you the renewal offer?

  • Owen Wilson Sock it to me!

    If renewed lease has not been signed by both parties,you still need to refer to the terms of the lease that is expiring.. If the new lease was signed then there should be no issue, unless something was violated. Good luck

  • Ok i asked if our leasing company asked us to renew and we agree. Can they take offer back cause eas told if they make an offer and we except cant resend it. I just wanted to be sure this is right

  • d3 NOH

    They have to give you at least a 30 day notice of non renewal before the expiration date in most cases ....if it is less than that you have 60 days .

    If they've signed the renewal as well that's a whole other issue and they are them trying to cancel an already executed contract which is harder than the above deadlines for them and can result in liability owed to you for moving early.

Need a Recommendation for a Bathtub Tile Contractor That's Reliable and Reasonable

  • Phil L. property owner/lincoln square

    I recently had some glazing and tile work done recently, I won't tell you who originally did the work, as they made a mess of it. But the people who "fixed" it all would have charged half of what I paid and did a wonderful fix.

Apartment Forced entry

I was involved in an home invasion earlier this morning around 5:30AM. 3 Latino men dressed in winter gear from head to toe(and ski masks) was able to open my apartment door with keys or some other tool to let them in. They rushed in, grab me and threw me to the floor, ziptied my hands and feet, asked if there was cash, took that and phones then left.
Police and building management were called

  • I am still waiting to hear if other items were stolen and wondering why the phones were abandoned. And I know a lot of people who are up and/or up and out by 530.

Indoor Basketball?

Anyone have any leads on access to an indoor basketball court in Edgewater or Rogers Park? I tried the Broadway Armory, but access is limited to Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30pm-9pm...even as a member of the park. Having a membership to a public park paid for with our tax dollars is already a questionable practice...let alone the public not having access to a public park. I went in there hoping to have a morning shoot around. Totally empty, yet I wasn't allowed to shoot around. Anyway, I don't mean for this be a rant...just kinda rubbed me the wrong way. Just looking for some indoor basketball recommendations!

Thanks!

  • Warren Park on Pratt and Western has men's basketball Tuesday nights beginning at 7pm. Maybe more nights, I'm only there Tuesday to see.

  • Just wanted to revisit this post and say I've gone to the open gym at The Armory quite a few times sine posting this and I love it! If you're looking for a great place to play basketball in Edgewater, this is the spot. Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30pm to 9pm for only $5. $22 a month gets you full access to the workout facility and free access to every open gym. Pretty good deal!

They have been there for over 20 years and the landlord isn't letting them renew their lease. The owner has no idea why. The bank, dry cleaners, and other business in there have closed, not sure what the plan is.

  • This thread is quite conflicting and confusing. The store owners didnt have their lease renewed but didnt know why not? They didnt ask? They seem to be sweet but overpriced..yet throw in free items? Maybe if they didnt give away free things their prices would be lower.One person says its sad in there..another said bustling. Sarah are you the tenant there or is this someone elses report?
