Hello, fellow taxpayers, Tax season 2018 is finally over!! (with the deadline for the extended returns being this past Monday, October 15th.)

We often tend to forget when thinking about what’s important to DO because we’re thinking about what’s important to US. The holidays, family, a [...]

Full Tax Season Mode- February 8, 2018

Hello All, Welcome to tax season, 2018. I finally recovered from a sore back which I believe was a precursor to coming down with the flu. I was out of the office all last week and Monday, was my first day back. A little tired, but no real worse for wear. Have you seen the papers? This is the worse flu season in years, and the flu shot is not as effective as everyone thought. In the past 20 years, I [...]
