TC Users doing biz in California may find this Sales and Use Tax ("SUT") chart instructive:

Is/are there explanation/definitions of TC5 "HANDYMAN" Tutorial-Books Inventory Items' data fields (See Below) available?  i.e.:

these are teh database fields. Look at a live set of books with flame robin to check it out. How did you get so deeo into the program so quickly? F is real; W is integer; S is a string; B boolean

 Ack F/W/S/B pre-fix definitions, tks.

I'm experimentin' w/ TC5, attemptin' (but not yet successful) to Import .csv file to populate Inventory List data fields of my own Set-of-Books.  I tried to use Handyman Inventory List dBase fields as "template" (to avoid newbie blunders), but have neither succeeded nor given-up (yet!).  :-)

After some comtemplation of the current Sales & Use Tax (SUT) guidelines published by the State of California (CA) Board of Equalization (BoE), it is my suggestion that the organization by COUNTY of the Tax Rates in both the EN-US-CALIFORNIA and the EN-US-CALIFORNIA_1 are undesirable.  Because individual CITIES within any California County can, and often do, have differring SUT rates, it is my counterproposal that the organization of the tax rate presettings should be organized by the available RATES (i.e. 7.750%, 8.00%, 9.25%, etc), instead.  It would then be the responsibility of a TurboCash User to select the proper RATE (not COUNTY) when creating a new Set-of-Books, using the CA BoE guidance.  Is this proposal sensible, given the interrelated nature of the TurboCash accounting programming in general?  If so, I'd like to learn how to create a "template" Set-of-Books for the State of California, which includes all of the available SUT Rates in the current BoE guidance.

In other words, I propose that this Tax Rate organization is FLAWED, because it does not support (take into account) multiple rates within certain Counties:

It is also undesirable, in my opinion, because it is STATIC, and periodic changes in California tax legislation mean that the rates are DYNAMIC, and change over time.  It would be safer, and more reliable, for TurboCash "template" Sets-of-Books to have the tax rates organized by RATES, rather than by COUNTY names.  My $0.02

If above proposal is NOT hare-brained, then I think what must happen is that the CUSTOMER CODES in the California Set-of-Books template(s) must be set-up to match the CA BoE SUT rates for 2017 (below):

I'm not (yet) confident that I know how to do this (correctly), but will be happy to attempt it, especially if someone more knowledgable than me will offer guidance, and also error-check any output BEFORE potential blunders are made available for Public use.  Any volunteer(s)?

Comment by Melody Moore on September 7, 2017 at 19:48

I suspect that the TurboCash TAX Accounts may (also) need to be Edited (or new ones Created), in order to support this (Above) proposal, but do not (yet) grasp how best to accomplish this.

I gather that all of these TC Accounts may need modification and/or replacement:

The Case against Bitcoin

Posted by Philip Copeman on December 5, 2017 at 16:44 0 Comments

Will blockchain be enduring? – of course. Will Bitcoin be enduring? - not likely.

Unless you are familiar with the terminology of blockchain, having an argument about its future is like arguing with a physicist about the Big Bang. Right now the myopia caused by ignorance centres the crpyto discussion on Bitcoin, store of value and speculative demand. The real delivery of money, the medium of exchange and the unit of account that blockchain brings to anything from IOT…


Crypto Currencies

Economist Dawie Roodt takes the typical neoliberal line on Crypto Currencies. This would be the expected response of an economist who's salary depends on pleasing his big business bosses.

Dawie, Crypto Currencies are not some parochial kids idea, they stand somewhere between a new internet protocol and a digital pitch fork revolution.…
