Well, here we are. The personal filing deadline (April 18th) is *so* close.
Yes, it’s officially the final week of tax season — and we are working our tails off for our clients!
There’s a lot of “business” in this note, so please make sure you read it all — it could make a huge difference.Read More
“I’ll get to it later…”No, I’m not talking about us doing your tax return!
But come on — haven’t we all uttered that magical phrase, capable of assuaging all our fears, and brilliantly putting off tomorrow what could have been put off today?
I’m talking to you, Mr. [or Mrs.] Procrastinator.
I’m not just talking about tax disasters here.
(And those are very real — believe me when I tell you that there have been a few clients who didn’t allow us to help them do some basic tax planning for this past year, and who are now reaping the whirlwind of unfortunate — and avoidable — tax bills.Read More
The other day was the first day of spring — which seems to always rush past me in a caffeine-soaked blur. As you may understand, we’re a little “busy” this time of year!
(This year, by the way, has been very encouraging on a variety of fronts — mostly because I have been excited to see some wonderful developments in the lives of many of our clients.)
The brackets are all set — well, by that I mean, the NCAA basketball brackets … the TAX brackets have been set for quite some time, and we’ve been spending our days with them far more than any basketball bracket!
I know the struggle is real for normal humans around these next few weeks to stay focused, but it’s not so difficult around THIS office simply because we are in such intensive work mode.Read More
We’re officially into the season that we get really and truly busy. Even with the extended tax deadline of April 18th this year, I know that some of our clients are still gathering their paperwork for their taxes — and I wanted to say: many happy returns to you in the effort.
(See what I did there?Read More
A little while back, the IRS released a study which showed that the average time it takes ALL taxpayers to do their taxes is a total of 18 hours.
The number is even higher if you don’t just use the 1040EZ form.
Seeing that figure once again reminded me of the service we get to provide.Read More
I’m going to start off this blog post with asking for a small favor — would you take a few moments and leave an honest review on Yelp or Google Maps about your experience with us? And obviously, if you have NOT yet used our services for preparing your taxes or helping with your books, it wouldn’t quite make sense yet to do this (!) …Read More
We are just about two months away from the tax deadline. This year (2016) the tax deadline happens to be April 18th, instead of April 15th, due to special a holiday in Washington, DC (“Emancipation Day”). More info here, if you care: http://1.usa.gov/1PzSzZL And for those of our clients in Maine or Massachusetts, you get one additional day because of “Patriots Day”,Read More
The leftover guacamole is turning brown, Peyton Manning may or may not have ridden his last rodeo, and PuppyMonkeyBaby has surely established some kind of new standard for Super Bowl Commercial Weirdness. The NFL season is officially in the books.
In my opinion, the ads were decent (and certainly cheerier than last year), the game was “ok” (especially so for Broncos,Read More
