Thank you, you will be a good friend to have. My taxes last year as a business owner were a nightmare

Are you still self – employed?  I’m asking when I looked at your profile couldn’t tell for sure.  I enjoyed your comment and I think it will show up on my blog soon, sans your name of course.  It’s funny when you become self-employed life is good.  End of the year the nightmare starts.  There’s a reason and it isn’t because the government is greedy and wastes money though that is probably true. LOL.  The issue is when you go to get your return prepared you are going to a historian.  You are asking the historian to record the history of how you made money last year.  That is what a tax return is.  You know, I got a lot of great historians working for me doing this type of work, none of the can change history. 

In my organization I am the prognosticator.  I predict your future taxes by examining what is currently happening.  You can’t change history but you can control your destiny.  Lot’s of times the simplest things can save a client $5,000 or more in taxes especially self-employed people.  Assuming you are still self-employed I urge you to give me office a call and set up a free consultation to discuss your situation and see how we can turn those nightmares into sweet dreams.

Basically I am just a tax nerd, have been all my life. However I have found the more open you are to opportunities the better off you will be in this world. That makes my what is know as an open networker on Linkedin, I will connect with anyone. I am not an expert on Linkedin by any means but one day when I was asking someone to connect I mentioned that I had just been refilled on invites. My new connect asked how I did that. I used that same line for the next month and got asked the same question four times. I started thinking there was a lot of little things it took my sometime to learn. Through this blog I plan to share some of those "Linked Secrets"
