    The community feature allows you to connect with other students studying for the exam. Like a traditional study group, you can share advice, ask questions, and help others understand topics which you have already mastered. ### A few tips to help you begin * **Your Participation Matters**— This forum won’t succeed without participation. If everybody only *asks* questions it won’t work. We built this feature as a resource for students to help each other. * **Create Posts**—You can create and answer posts while viewing a question or from within the main Forum. If you post from the question, please keep the discussion relevant to the question in focus. There is no need to copy/paste content from the question as it automatically attaches to your post. * **When to Reply vs Comment**—There are two ways to interact with a post, a *reply* and a *comment*. Reply to a post to provide the answer or a longer response. You can leave comments (short messages) on the post to ask for clarification or share your opinion. * **Connect in the Forum**—The main Forum hub is a central location where you can post about a variety of topics that are not specifically connected to the learning materials. This is a great place to compare exam strategies, learn from other student’s perspectives, and discuss any other topic that may benefit the community. That’s all for now. Be sure to review our [Community Rules & Guidelines](/ea-forum/post/284) before creating your first post.
    Nondeductibility of alimony
    Catnip - 07/1/2020, 11:11 pm
    I reviewed the Reminder in 2019 Publication 17 that speaks to this new rule; but does this mean it can never be deducted or there is a separate process to be applied in the subsequent tax year?
    There is no correct answer.

    Why municipal bond interest is included from gross income? This is not a mutual fund interest.

    The question did nor indicate if the outdoor porch is detached from the house, if the porch is a constitutes improvement to the main home, why is that not part of the house, and an addition to property value? Why is it being treated as a separate asset?
    ALE's and Minimum Insurance Coverage
    Niyi-Oluini-41018 - 03/23/2020, 5:35 pm
    How did you arrive at the number 30, regarding employees not covered by the ALE, is there a IRS ruling for ALE's that supports your calculation of deducting 30 from 56, hence the coverage for 26 employee?
    Question about DNI and actual amount distributed
    Sejoon - 03/22/2020, 12:32 pm
    In the question above, the question mentions that the actual amount distributed was $7000. Then why would the beneficiary report the income as $8000(the DNI amount) when he or she has actually received $7000?
