Can you lie on your taxes? Are you asking if you are allowed to or if you can get away with it?

Re: amex sending out email "ineligible for signup bonus"
Not to go OT, but why does Amex even care whether spend is MS or organic? They collect their fees either way.
Perhaps they don't want the MS type people. They generally cost Amex a lot in frequent sign up bonuses but don't provide long term revenue.
They want long term consistent spenders, and if you need MS to reach a 3k sign up bonus they probably wont make much on you long term.

Re: Would you have been better off if you never found DDF? Pretty much supported my family with MS/CC apps for a few years until I finished school and started a real job.

Just a lesson on how Hashem main gig at the time was Redbird. I had 13 cards and would buy prepaids for 5% CB and load 65k (5k x13) a month at Target. At 1% cost I netted around $2,600 a month. That together with other MS (and my wife's small income) we got by. Literally the very day I started my job, Target stopped allowing debit loads on Redbirds effectively ending the gig.

Re: Excel Help and Problems
i have a price list for a bunch of items

under them a subtotal

now i want to add 20% fee, but only to certain items
then another fee 5% to other items 

something like this;

food    20
drink    10
ice cream 10

subtotal  40

20% fee  ??     what if only want the fee to be added to drinks
10 % fee  ??                   to others

Total     this i can do

thanks for your help
Make some type of indicator in the next column. So for example next to the drinks you would enter A and next to the others you would enter B. Then after the subtotal use a sumif to add the A items and multiply that by 20%, then sumif the B items and multiply by 5%.

Re: DIY (Do It Yourself Repairs) - Successes and Blunders Did that recently with a light fixture. Went to turn the breaker back on and couldn't figure out why the fixture wasn't turning on. Ended up measuring the distance from the walls to the box on the ceiling and went up to the attic and triangulated the position of the box. Pulled up a bunch of insulation to see if a wire was cut. While following the wires, I noticed that it went down into one of the walls, hmm why would it do that? Then it hit me. The switch.

Re: Chase 1099-MISC
did they notify you that you would be getting 1099? you can demand them to correct it and listen to the voice call to verify you were not properly notified if that is the case
There is no IRS requirement that they need to notify you, and if their accountants feel that the need to send you one they will. Your only avenue it to try to get them to cover your loses but they aren't going to take back the 1099.

That's why I'm using find format from cell, shouldn't it match it exactly?
You copied it from another file, so how do you know that the color you are selecting on the find/replace is the same color as on the sheet. Maybe the sheet is a custom color etc.

I have 12345 in the first cell. I want every cell under it to increment 1 each time. Easiest way to do it? I need thousands.
If the first cell is A1, then B1 would be =A1+1. Then select B1 and you'll see a tiny box in the bottom right of the cell. Drag that down as far as you want.

Re: Iran's Top Terrorist Taken Out By The U.S.
Can someone help with the paywall?
The Wall Street Journal
The Democrats and Iran
Why can’t the party’s candidates simply admit Qasem Soleimani’s death makes Americans safer?
By Joe Lieberman
Jan. 5, 2020 5:15 pm ET

President Trump’s order to take out Qasem Soleimani was morally, constitutionally and strategically correct. It deserves more bipartisan support than the begrudging or negative reactions it has received thus far from my fellow Democrats.

The president’s decision was bold and unconventional. It’s understandable that the political class should have questions about it. But it isn’t understandable that all the questions are being raised by Democrats and all the praise is coming from Republicans. That divided response suggests the partisanship that has infected and disabled so much of U.S. domestic policy now also determines our elected leaders’ responses to major foreign-policy events and national-security issues, even the killing of a man responsible for murdering hundreds of Americans and planning to kill thousands more.

After World War II, Sen. Arthur Vandenberg, a Michigan Republican who was chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, formed a bipartisan partnership with President Truman that helped secure the postwar peace and greatly strengthened America’s position in the Cold War. “Politics stops at the water’s edge,” said Vandenberg when asked why he worked so closely with a Democratic president. He added that his fellow Americans undoubtedly had “earnest, honest, even vehement” differences of opinion on foreign policy, but if “we can keep partisan politics out of foreign affairs, it is entirely obvious that we shall speak with infinitely greater authority abroad.”

In their uniformly skeptical or negative reactions to Soleimani’s death, Democrats are falling well below Vandenberg’s standard and, I fear, creating the risk that the U.S. will be seen as acting and speaking with less authority abroad at this important time.

No American can dispute that Soleimani created, supported and directed a network of terrorist organizations that spread havoc in the Middle East. In Syria he made it possible for the Assad regime to respond with brutality to its own people’s demands for freedom. More than 500,000 Syrians have died since 2011 and millions more have been displaced from their homes.

During the Iraq war, Soleimani oversaw three camps in Iran where his elite Quds Force trained and equipped Iraqi militias. According to the U.S. government, these fighters have killed more than 600 American soldiers since 2003. In another time, this would have been a just cause for an American war against Iran, and certainly for trying to eliminate Soleimani. Within Iran, the Quds Force has worked with the supreme leader to suppress freedom and economic opportunity, jail dissident politicians and journalists, and kill protesters in the streets.

From the perspective of American values and interests, it’s impossible to mourn the death of such a man, and Democrats haven’t. Their response thus far has been “Yes, but . . .,” adding worries that Soleimani’s death will provoke a violent response from Iran. Democrats have also suggested that the Trump administration has no coherent strategy toward Iran or that Mr. Trump shouldn’t have acted without notice to and permission from Congress.

Yet if we allow fear of a self-declared enemy like Iran to dictate our actions, we will only encourage them to come after us and our allies more aggressively. Some Democrats have said that killing Soleimani will lead us into war with Iran. In fact, Soleimani and the Quds Force have been at war with the U.S. for years. It is more likely that his death will diminish the chances of a wider conflict because the demonstration of our willingness to kill him will give Iranian leaders (and probably others like Kim Jong Un) much to fear.

Some Democrats have also refused to appreciate Soleimani’s elimination because they say it isn’t part of an overall strategy for the region. But based on the public record, there is a strategy, beginning with the Trump administration’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement, the shift to maximum economic pressure, and now adding a demonstrated willingness to respond with military force to Iran’s provocations. The goal is to bring the Iranian government back into negotiations to end its nuclear weapons program and rejoin the world’s economy.

The claim by some Democrats that Mr. Trump had no authority to order this attack without congressional approval is constitutionally untenable and practically senseless. Authority to act quickly to eliminate a threat to the U.S. is inherent in the powers granted to the president by the Constitution. It defies common sense to argue that the president must notify Congress or begin a formal process of authorization before acting on an imminent threat.

On many occasions President Obama sensibly ordered drone strikes on dangerous terrorist leaders, including U.S.-born Anwar al-Awlaki. He did so without specific congressional authorization, and without significant Democratic opposition. Mr. Obama also “brought justice” to Osama bin Laden without prior, explicit congressional approval.

It is possible that anti-Trump partisanship isn’t behind Democrats’ reluctance to say they’re glad Soleimani is dead. It may be that today’s Democratic Party simply doesn’t believe in the use of force against America’s enemies in the world. I don’t believe that is true, but episodes like this one may lead many Americans to wonder whether it is. If enough voters decide that Democrats can’t be trusted to keep America safe, Mr. Trump won’t have much trouble winning a second term in November. That’s one more reason Democrats should leave partisan politics at “the water’s edge” and, whatever their opinion of President Trump on other matters, stand together against Iran and dangerous leaders like Qasem Soleimani.

Mr. Lieberman, a Democrat, was a U.S. senator from Connecticut, 1989-2013, and is chairman of No Labels, a national organization working to revive bipartisanship.

If you have others in your house, they could catch it from you and can not develop symptoms for as long as 14 days. So your parents are definitely not in the clear if there were others in your house.

Re: Can people PLEASE stop predicting when Mashiach is coming?! by Eytan Kobre

The upheavals of ikvesa d’Meshicha and the disorienting dislocations of chevlei Mashiach are certainly addressed in authentic Torah sources. What, then, could possibly be amiss in linking them to events in our world?

The issue, however, isn’t whether such concepts are true. It is instead whether focusing on them might be not just irrelevant but perhaps even spiritually inimical. In Tishrei 5734, as the Yom Kippur War raged, Rav Eliezer Menachem Shach stood before the aron kodesh of Yeshivas Ponevezh and told an overflowing beis medrash: The above-mentioned Rambam writes that when in troubled times, people aren’t moved to cry out in repentance to Hashem, but instead say “this is the minhag ha’olam, it’s the way the world works,” they are cruelly inviting further troubles.

Attributing one’s troubles to living in the era of Mashiach, the Rosh Yeshivah explained, is a way of saying “this is the minhag ha’olam,” that this is just the way things are in the days preceding yemos haMashiach. That kind of thinking is an example of what the Torah refers to as halichah b’keri, treating events as random, since if events at large are merely a function of this being Mashiach’s tzeiten, then it has nothing to do with me and there’s no Heavenly wake-up call to which I need respond.

Re: Is there any good news in the fight against COVID-19?

See here, there is a difference between asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic. HWO is saying that it's rare for asymptomatic to spread the virus, but "The incubation period, or the time a person takes to show symptoms after getting infected, is the pre-symptomatic phase, the WHO says. Carriers can infect others during this period."
