Ask TaxMama Issue 662 – 2013 News

Dear Family,

This week, the IRS announces new limits on a variety of things for 2013. That’s the entire content of this week’s IRS news features:

In IRS News  we get the new limits on a variety of benefits for 2013 – with more to come in the IRS’s announcement on November 5th. The IRS also provides in-depth detail about the 2013 pension plan limits. There are so many, you’ll want to go to the TaxMama site to find them all.

Now you need a good laugh. So in this week’s Money Funnies, we show you a very clever, (shall we say, conniving) senior. You can learn from this. A great way to eliminate argument and stress. (for someone)

This week’s Equifax Blog  describes what you can deduct when you move across the country…or at least 50 miles away.

If you want to see all the TaxQuips from earlier in the week, drop by here. There are some interesting topics.

The job search is on. If you’re looking for a job, an intern, or a new employee, please visit the new TaxMama Career center, partnered with JobTarget.com. For 15% off on any postings or orders, use the code: taxcareers 

We have the second half of the RTRP class coming up at CPE Link next week – and lots more neat courses.   http://www.cpelink.com/teamtaxmama/
