Ask TaxMama Issue 624 – Happy Holiday Season

Happy Birthday to David  and Happy ChanukahDear Family,Happy Chanukah, Merry Christmas, Habari Gani?

Although this time of year is meant to be sort of slow, and laid back, so we can just enjoy the buzz from the whole year and the holidays…it’s been quite the opposite. These last couple of months have been a whirlwind – kind of a blur, actually. And there are still a million things to do.  

Well, I don’t know about you, but…I’m only going to finish up on a few more obligations through Tuesday. Then, we’re gone! Oh sure, the office will still be open next week. But even Lulu gets the following week off.  

I won’t be able to answer emails or TaxQuips questions. We won’t be able to accept new registrations in the EA Class, so please – don’t register until January. I won’t be carrying a cell phone – so, please, don’t have emergencies.  

That said. I’d like to wish you all a wonderful, wonderful holiday season. Take the time to goof off and play hookey for a day or more, too. Your soul needs it.  

Thank you, each and every one of you, for making this such an interesting and exciting year. Thank you for your questions, for your humor, for your notes and discussions. For being part of my classes – and how I will especially miss all of you during the next couple of weeks.  

They say the Internet is a cold, unfriendly place. But if feels like family, to me.  Thank you for the warmth and love.
