Ask Taxmama Issue 415 – 4th of July

Dear Family,

This year, we have an odd 4th of July. It comes
in the middle of the week. Some companies, I suppose
are giving people time off for a long weekend this week.
Others, perhaps are taking the holiday next week. Of
course, most government offices will only be closed

on the 4th, smack dab in the middle of the week.

What will you be doing? If you’re smart – taking
both weekends, with the week in between.
I applaud you!

Meanwhile, let’s see what interesting things we
have in store for you this week.

IRS has lots of announcements about staffing changes

and things involving professionals and exempt
organizations. I don’t really think you want to
read about them. But if you do, drop by
IRS’s newsroom.

Though there was a very interesting seminar by
IRS e-services Group. And, let me tell you – the
future is really interesting. Oh, and shhhhh,
don’t tell anyone but, in the future, you will be

able to e-file amended returns, and perhaps even
late returns as far back as 2005!

So we turn to Roccy DeFrancesco who tells you
about a major flaw in a best-selling investment
book – and offers you a free seminar to boot.

Read today’s IRS News.

TaxQuips has lots of juicy stuff this week.
Yesterday’s question blew my mind!

And if you’re old enough, you’ll love today’s

Money Funnies. If you’re very young, read it
and marvel over the changes in the world – in
your parents’ lifetimes.

The column was finally published.

interesting site that helps folks get business
licenses. And what they do for the average person,
aside from just businesses, is really quite fun!
Don’t let licenses, permits trip up your fledgling business

OK, running late trying to put all this together.

Have a less taxing and more exhilarating weekend.

Hugs from your favorite TaxNerd,
