Slippery taxes on my boat.
Smelly taxes on my goat . . . .
Income taxes here and there.
Excise taxes everywhere!
I sure don’t like to pay my tax.
No one does! That’s just the facts!
Slippery taxes on my boat.

Rock & roll fans lost an icon last month with the death of David Bowie just two days after his 69th birthday. Bowie made a career out of breaking molds, pioneering “glam rock” and reinventing himself constantly along the way. Rolling Stone magazine’s obituary hailed him as “one of the most original and singular voices in rock & roll for nearly five decades,” whose “flair for theatricality won him a legion of fans.”
But Bowie’s fame made him a man who’ll take things over — he became one of rock’s savviest money managers, and that naturally included proactive steps to beat the tax man.Continue reading →
You may be on your best behavior, but adults often fail to make the connection between being naughty or nice. This is especially true when it comes to taxes!

Few figures from recent history loom larger than British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, “the Last Lion.” He spent “the wilderness years” of the 1930s fighting the Conservative Party’s leadership, most notably Neville Chamberlain, to campaign for rearmament. As prime minister, he fought the Nazis to victory in World War II. Throughout his life, he fought the “black dog” of depression. But did you know how much he fought the Board of Inland Revenue — his country’s equivalent of our own IRS?
If you’re like most of our clients, when it comes to taxes, you want to fight them on the beaches, fight them on the landing grounds, and fight them in the fields and streams and hills and never surrender. The good news is you don’t need to strong-arm the Secretary of the Treasury into letting you pay less. You just need a plan. So call us, before December 31, to assure your finest hour!Continue reading →
Last month, one of the most truly American lives came to an end at age 90. Baseball legend Lawrence “Yogi” Berra was a superstar both on and off the field. As a player, he won 10 World Series rings and made the All-Star team 18 times in 19 seasons. He was American League MVP five times and won election to the Hall of Fame in 1972. Off the field, he managed and coached the New York Yankees, New York Mets, and Houston Astros.
Who can forget, “When you come to a fork in the road, take it”? Tax planning is full of forks in the road. Cash or accrual? C-corp or S-corp? Medical expense reimbursement plan or HSA? As Yogi says, “You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you’re going, because you may never get there.” So call us for the plan you need if you don’t want April 15 to feel like deja vu all over again!Continue reading →
That’s pretty much what happened to one marijuana dispensary owner in Seattle. Except the auditor’s dopey request didn’t quite work out the way he hoped. (And really, if it had, would you be reading about it here?)Continue reading →
Coca Cola has earned a lot of headlines for their “Share a Coke with . . . “ marketing campaign, printing bottles and cans with 1,000 of the most popular names in the country, along with nicknames like “Mom,” “Dad,” Soulmate,” and “BFF.” You can even go online to customize your own bottle for just five bucks. (Just imagine the possibilities . . . “Share a Koke with a Kardashian” for reality-TV wannabes, or “Share a Diet Coke with Your Yoga Instructor” for fitness fanatics? The Center for Science in the Public Interest even created a “Share a Coke with Obesity” can.)
Coke makes billions of dollars a year. But they understand it’s what they keep that counts, and they’re willing to fight to keep more. That is being “tax savvy”! Shouldn’t you be working for the same goal? So call us for a plan, and pay for your next Coke with the savings. It’s the real thing!Continue reading →
