13 surprising facts about me

“The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.”

– Walter Bagehot


I don’t normally start out like this–truly, I try to avoid boring you to death with too much “taxy” stuff, unless it’s pertinent and actionable for you (it is, after all, our job to keep your tax burden down!).

So… a few tax-related things, and then my staff put something together which seems a bit self-aggrandizing to send along, but they think you’ll get a kick out of it.

The tax item:

October 15th is the deadline to get your return from TY2009 (Tax Year 2009) in to the IRS. You would have had to file an extension to get this date (instead of 4/15). If you aren’t aware of this deadline, you’ve got PROBLEMS. But, of course, I’m in the problem-solving business, so again–call ( 866.282.3127) or email me. We’ll set you up right!

Which, my staff tells me, is a great segue to this week’s Note. Not quite a “Strategy” Note this week, but it is something you should definitely keep in mind! <wink>

With apologies to a certain Texas Ranger named Walker…
