I hold Put options as insurance against a market crash. Generally I buy some near current price and then sell the same amount 15-20% lower priced so that I have a 15-20% cushion in a bad market.

Why bother with 529 plan if you can use an IRA for kids tuition expenses (give the assumption that I'm not currently maxing my 401k, nor doing backdoor 401k)? Wouldn't it be more tax efficient to use the 401k / rollover IRA?

My clients are pushing back on it this year, and I can't say I blame them. If I were in their shoes, I'd rather take the risk of not filing than the expense of filing again. From my own point of view, I don't really want to spend my time on such returns, either, even if the revenue and easy return are nice.
