It’s Not Too Early to Start Thinking About April

It’s hard to believe that it’s already February and 2014 is in full swing. Hopefully 2013 was a happy and prosperous year for you and 2014 will be even better. While it’s tempting to file away last year completely and start fresh, there are still a few things left to do before you can completely put a pin in 2013. I’m talking, of course, about taking care of your 2013 taxes. By now you should have started getting your W-2s, 1099s, and all the other documents needed for your CPA to work on your taxes. Just like January has quickly come...

Last Minute Tax Saving Tips

Every year around this time, I always have people frantically ask “What can I do to save on my taxes?

However, there are a few principles to follow and then some specific ideas each year that you might be able to use to your advantage. The Principles: Pay the least amount of tax possible. This seems obvious, but it isn’t...

Some Advice from Your QuickBooks ProAdvisor

Some Advice from Your QuickBooks ProAdvisor

As a QuickBooks ProAdvisor and CPA, I frequently see clients that are behind on their books and they need my help to get out of a hole they’ve dug for themselves by not staying current. This means putting on my QuickBooks ProAdvisor hat to get them out of the hole and then my CPA hat to educate them on the benefits and importance of staying out of next one. Sometimes it’s a shallow hole and they’re only behind by a month or two. More often than not, they’ve dug themselves into a deep, dark cavern by not touching their QuickBooks since last...

Business Gifts and Tax Deductions

In a very short time, we will be totally immersed in the world of Christmas shopping and gift giving. As a business owner this doesn’t just mean finding the gifts for family and friends. It also means most likely be giving gifts to thank the customers and business associates that have helped your business over the past year. While you want to be like Santa to your customers, the IRS wants you to temper that with at least a little bit of Scrooge. They have a limit on how much of your business gifts are tax deductible.

Accounting Changes from the Fiscal Cliff

Accounting Changes from the Fiscal Cliff

  This week, Congress finally stopped arguing and posturing long enough to pass some legislation to help the nation avoid the Fiscal Cliff that would plunge our economy into oblivion (or maybe not depending on who you ask). The fact that it took until we technically went over the cliff to get a deal done only makes sense to someone inside the beltway, but I digress. I’ve had several calls and questions about how all of this is going to affect us going forward so let’s review what happened. Your taxes are going up, but not as...

I Don’t Blame Romney

A great debate drages during this election cycle about income taxes. Tax laws are scheduled to change at the end of the year. As a country we’re in debt up to our nose. Our economy isn’t running like the juggernaut it used to be. And Mitt Romney is running for President. As many of you know, Mitt is a millionaire many times over and a big deal has been made about his tax returns. He recently released his tax return for 2011, where he paid 14.1% in income taxes. While I will not get into a debate about his politics, many people...

Your Taxes are Changing

With the Bush tax cuts set to expire again at the end of 2012 and the US mired in political gridlock, I wanted to take a high level look at what to expect with taxes. Obviously, we don’t know what will happen in Washington. A lot will be decided by the results of the coming election and the subsequent lame-duck session of Congress, however a lot of things are scheduled to happen if Congress doesn’t intervene. If the Bush tax cuts are allowed to expire: Our tax brackets are changing for 2013. The lowest bracket moves up from 10% to...
