Re: My PlayBook has arrived!!!!!

Yeah, sorry about that! I was thinking faster than I was typing. That's exactly what I meant.

Re: My PlayBook has arrived!!!!!

Unless RIM sends us all 1099-MISC's (which I doubt) you don't have to report it.

 

I got mine today too.. Haven't tried Bing maps as I've got a lot to do today, but just wanted to point out that GPS is a line of sight technology - meaning you must be in the open... Sometimes, they work inside, but rarely, try just stepping outside for a moment to see if you get a fix.

 

Anyone have any cool hacks yet? Or apps that are "must have?"

Even if 1099-MISC's are not sent out, I would highly recommend reporting it anyways.  It is the responsibility of the vender not RIM to keep up with that stuff.  Just trying to be the voice of the good angel.

Re: My PlayBook has arrived!!!!!

The invoice price was $0.00.  The MSRP at a retailer outlet is $499. You could claim in your taxes that you received a gift worth $499, but the invoice still says $0.00.  if my math is correct, the amount to report is:

 

 

$0.00

streak81 pretty much summed it up... We got it as a gift for $0 - there's no evidence for what the value is for us aside from MSRP - but you don't pay taxes on MSRP evaluations.

I'd say report it if you want, but you're going to over pay in taxes.

@streak81:  Agreed!  Please disregard my last post about reporting it.  Smiley Happy

Well, you don't even imagine how creative tax offices can be. Sometimes they want you to pay taxes from free Linux the same as for Windows received as a gift (from retail price) - it is caused by simple logic, it is free, it is the same as something worth lot's of money = it is profit, pay taxes.
