Ask TaxMama Issue 586 – Happy Valentines Weekend

Dear Family, Happy Valentine’s Day weekend. Are you doing something romantic?  We sneaked off and took our romantic weekend last month. I found a winery resort in Temecula where each guest room is a separate villa. They are so popular, they’ll be adding another hundred or so this year. What’s your favorite romantic getaway?  (Just […]

Ask TaxMama Issue 584 – Mapping Taxes

  Dear Family,  Yesterday IRS officially announced that February 14th is when they will start processing tax returns with itemized deductions and other forms that were affected by the tax law changes on. Although IRS says that most people are unaffected by this late filing, odds are, YOU are not most people. According to Spidell […]

Ask TaxMama Issue 583 – A Dream

Dear Family,  Someone on the news this morning was talking about how insulting it is that some schools are open on Monday, Martin Luther King Day. That got me to thinking about how much the world has changed since I was a child. When schools and restaurants and buses and bathrooms were segregated by color. […]

Ask TaxMama Issue 582 – A New Year

The year has just started – and the first business week has flown by!  We’ve been busy trying to revive all the Homebuyer’s Credit IRS has rejected for our owners of new manufactured housing. The Taxpayers Advocate Service has been an enormous help with this project. They too, are bewildered about some of the odd […]

Ask TaxMama Issue 578 – New Law Coming

Dear Family,  Happy Chanukah! Will you be lighting candles with family and friends today?  Yesterday, the House of Representatives passed their Bush Tax Cuts Extender Bill. No point in going into details or doing cartwheels yet. It’s not a law. And it won’t be until the Senate either votes on it and agrees with it […]

Ask TaxMama Issue 577 – Pre-Thanksgiving

Dear Family,  What a nice way to start the day. I just heard from Rasmussen College this morning. They just published their list of the 20 best blogs for accounting students. Delightfully, TaxMama and many of my friends are on the list. But there are others I’ve never heard of – and will look forward […]

Ask TaxMama Issue 576 – Sleepy Weekend

Dear Family,  It’s November. Government offices were closed yesterday for Veteran’s Day, and are open again today. We’ve gotten spoiled with our Federal holidays landing on Mondays so we can have a long weekend.  It’s odd to celebrate an event, however solemn, then have to go back to work the next day. In fact, California’s […]

Ask TaxMama Issue 575 – Oh Joy!

Dear Family,  What a distracting morning! While I am perfectly capable of ignoring ringing telephones, I haven’t quite mastered the art of ignoring emails. They seem to pile up if you don’t answer them, or read them, have you noticed? Then we had a little earthquake. Not much. Certainly not for Southern California. (Actually, OK…truth?  […]

Ask TaxMama Issue 573 – Wealth of Spirit

Dear Family, Just in case you’re looking for it, it may not be here for a while. The TaxMama site is undergoing some maintenance this morning. Rebalancing servers and the like. I was hoping it would be ready for prime time, but…perhaps it will be ready by the time I am speaking at the Virtual […]
