Man this week has been rough. My wife is halfway around the world for work. My daughter was sick for a couple days and now that she is feeling better she got me sick. So I’m sitting here in bed right now trying to get the next episode of the IDP podcast because it’s too good not to put it out. Why is it so good? I have the man @jjthecpa come on and I can tell you it is some great content! Keep an eye out for Friday! I do have to send a shoutout to my tribe. My family and friends that have helped me with the baby as we both get better. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Did you guys catch our Facebook live interview with @latinotaxpro on this past Friday? I had the pleasure to interview them on Friday and talk about their beginnings and their mission. What are they about? They want to empower all tax preparers to help immigrant and foreign clients. This episode will drop in two weeks on our podcast but if you guys want to see the raw version of it then check out our FB page!
Saturday thoughts = this face. Why am I making this face? Just heard a story about a small business owner who went to their tax preparer and asked what they can do to work on their tax bill. This tax preparers answer? “Rework your expenses.” Are you kidding me? That is just lazy. Our job as tax professionals is to make sure to find all available deductions AND help small businesses plan for next year. We just saved a client about $12,000 with some simple tax planning strategies. That’s $12,000 annually not one time. Find yourself an advisor not a tax preparer. This is what we specialize in. Working WITH our clients. It’s not about volume and pushing them out the door. It’s about working with them year round. Give us a shout if you are tired of only hearing from your person once a year.
