Wow, this tax season has flown past like a bullet train. Thanks to you, our business has been hopping this year, and we don’t take it for granted.
Many Birmingham business owners have had a whole slew of new concerns this year, as a result of the implementation of the ACA, and its attendant regulations. We’ve been honored to help you and others with all of it (including no small number of brand new local business clients).
For this and other reasons, we do have some clients going on extension (about which I wrote last week), and we will continue to work with them … after we take a short break around here for some needed rest!
And speaking of the IRS, perhaps I should also thank the federal government for creating a tax system so complex and counterintuitive that it has provided myself and those who work for me with gainful employment.
Leaving my own personal circumstances aside though, I’d be thrilled if our tax system was much simpler.
But it isn’t simple, and it is far better to live in the reality of what *is* (and work to make positive change), than to simply moan about a problem that is larger than what any one person can change.
I believe that, as a business owner, you understand what I mean by that.
Preparing tax returns is like that — it is dealing with what *is* — not with what “could be”. Which is why tax PLANNING will be the subject of a few of my Notes in the future.
We can do much for for you than simple historical reporting. Email me, or call me in a couple weeks, and we can discuss more fully.
Lastly, I hope you’ll forgive me for taking a break from writing you a Business Strategy Note for this week … I’m not sure that if I did so, anything besides numbers and spreadsheets would come out. It’s amazing what 4 months of staring at government forms does to a brain.
But hey — this is what we signed up for. And we are extremely grateful for your trust, and for the chance you’ve given us to serve you in it, so you don’t have to suffer the same fate.
We will be in touch again soon. Assuming, of course, that this newly-fierce caffeine hangover ever releases me from its foul (but oh-so-sweet) grip.
