Question - when I accidentally type in the code window during debugging and VS says I have to 'edit' or 'continue', how do those options differ and why can't I EVER keep debugging instead of stopping and starting again?
I encountered that only with web applications...
I think the issue is IIS and VS try to synchronize to it...
IIS love to keep close binaries (pre-load and such), so VS have hard time to replace a DLL...

Stolen unashamedly from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
1) Nice steal.
2) Well, kind of, Marc (in USA at least). Your estate is liable for debts owed, including income taxes. I believe that's limited to the value of the estate, that not even the IRS can go after heirs' assets.
However, capital gains on investments are calculated from the investments' price at the decendent's date of death, not from the original purchase price. Hopefully, that's better for the heirs, and certainly a lot less hassle.
3) For those single people out there, make sure that your assets are what's called "transfer on death". This means the asset transfers to the designated person without going through the probate process. Thus, they're more immediately available, and the local government doesn't get a cut.
All of this is based on my experiences being the representative of a few estates in the midwest USA, and I am not a lawyer, so take these statements with a grain of salt.
Yes, I make my tax preparer give me the forms on paper, she hates me for it, oh well.

As for the need for magically complicated efforts?
Was the 1099 to you or you as a Doing Business As? Just claim in on Schedule C or C-EZ
If you were an LLC - no partners and it's an easy pass-through
With partners? I did this - you've a bunch of not-too-difficult forms and you allocate the money to you & partner, then use it like income. And don't forget that SEP!
As for the application I use? Spreadsheet.
I put in the line number on the form with the line number on the spread-sheet.
Build in the simple math.
Off to the (right) side I may have some table for the various things that need to be totaled,
such as multiple W-2's, etc.
Transcribe when all done. Fed forms are fill-in-saveable pdf format.
Tax Cut (H&R Block), been using it for about 8 years. Worth the $20. If you did a contract, you should have the expense records for being able to do it.
New form this year: "List your 2019 income. Send it"
If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
