Expenses rising at CPI + percent

Jim: I have some expenses that I expect to rise at an increment over inflation. Does FRP provide any way to specify that? Obviously I could just specify the COLA Percent figures manually for those expense lines. But if I want to play with different CPI numbers, then I also have to manually adjust al...

Open recent file?

I'm on a Mac, running OS X El Capitan. My FRP files are deep down inside a series of nested folders, and every time I want to open one, I have to use FRP's Open pane to navigate multiple levels down. Is there any easier way? For example, some Mac programs have an "open recent file" option, but I don...

Taxable percent on cash flows

Just to make sure I understand how it works... If I enter a Misc Income cash flow with a Taxable Percent of 50%, and my Income Tax Rate is 30%, that cash flow will be taxed at 15%. Is that right? I can't think what this parameter would be useful for. Can you give an example of how it might be used? ...

Re: Tax-deductible expenses (charitable contributions, mortgage interest)

Jim - Here's another reason why tax-deductible expenses would be helpful.... My husband is a psychotherapist, self-employed. He has a number of business expenses which are tax-deductible. I can show these expenses in FRP as a separate Misc Expense line, and adjust the amounts to account for taxes. (...

Re: Misc income vs. taxable savings - one-time cash flow

Understood. Thanks. But that raises another question. If I treat the sale of the investment property as Misc Income, how does FRP treat the proceeds? Are they treated as taxable savings thenceforth? I guess that's just a specific instance of a more general question of what happens in any year that i...

Misc income vs. taxable savings - one-time cash flow

I need to model the sale of an investment property on some future date. I assume that the proceeds will go into a taxable savings account. I'm unsure how to model this. It seems to me that I have a choice of showing it either as a Misc Income, or as Taxable Savings. Is that right? But what's the dif...

Re: Show age rather than years?

Thanks. Our replies crossed... I wrote my clarification at the same time you wrote you're, and I didn't notice yours till just after I posted mine.

Thanks for being so responsive to my postings!

Re: Show age rather than years?

Sorry, I'm afraid I wasn't clear in my original post. I was referring to the bar graph at the bottom of the Summary View page. At the bottom of each bar is a year number (2016, 2017, ....). What I'd prefer to see is (65, 66, ...) - starting from my current age. The smooshing together of the year num...
