Dear Family, Today is Good Friday and also the middle of Passover. Lots of places are closed, like banks, stock exchanges, schools, and more. Take some time to enjoy today. You can start with the Money Funnies. In honor of April Fools Day this weekend, this week’s Money Funny honors Joey Skaggs and New York […]
Dear Family, It’s been a long day. Everyone seems to be working late. I am getting emails from the East Coast well after 8:00 pm their time. Of course, me? I’ve been on hold a lot of the day. The Tax Preparer Hotline (aka Practitioner Priority Service) hung up on me a few times. Once […]
There’s a party at the IRS today. Yup, they have parties, too. Ted Meyer, currently a territory manager in Los Angeles is retiring after over 3 decades of service. Although I am sure we’re all happy for him, I have to admit that I am sad to see him, and so many other veteran IRS […]

Dear Family, Whew…OK, I am all caught up, at the moment, on answering all questions in the TaxQuips Forum, from students, from clients and everyone. We have finished all tax returns – except the one person who is THE annual straggler. So perhaps it’s time to focus on family and friends and the New Year […]
Dear Family, Well, California just made Kiplinger’s Worst State to Live In lists – Twice. The 10 Least Friendly Tax States, and the 5 States with the Highest Income Tax. Yup…it’s time to think about moving somewhere else. But where? I have this article right at hand, from nearly a year ago. But haven’t had […]
Dear Family, Friday is a nice, gray day here in the Valley. The sun is not burning brightly down upon our heads and shoulders – at least, not yet. Thank goodness. It’s been tough out there – and my car’s A/C unit seems to have a leak. It only blows cool air when Rick […]
Dear Family, Our celebration this week is all about aviation, flight and fancy. This takes me back to a rather taxing incident in high school. My boyfriend was a pilot and I loved to go flying with him. So did his sociology instructor, the Reverend Carroll N. O’Dell. When Allen was in Mr. O’Dell’s class, […]
