Well, apparently we have a new (massive) spending bill in place from Congress, and plenty of the usual suspects are up in arms. Us? We’re too busy preparing tax returns right now to dig into the details of the (2,232 page!) bill, but here is a trustworthy rundown, if you care to read about it. There are some minor tax-related things in there, but nothing hugely significant.
But speaking of taxes, and of significance …
I would like to take a minute here to address you in Connecticut who have not yet made the decision to use our services.
After all, we’ve helped many Connecticut families “make the switch” over to us, year after year.
But look, I know that change is difficult.
And yes … I also know that you’ve probably established a rhythm with your current provider (even if it’s not a “good” rhythm), and that you might dread the prospect of having to teach a new Connecticut tax professional about your family’s financial dreams and goals.
(By the way, are you using a tax pro who actually cares about those?)
Which is why this note would be for you.
(And if you’re already using us, then you can safely ignore this particular message, and just kindly forward this on to a couple friends right now — after all, we love to reward our Connecticut clients for good referrals!)
Many families are still pulling together their paperwork to deliver to their preparer this week … and before you do that with your existing preparer, I’d like to give you a reason to try us out.
I’d rather not “bad mouth” other tax accountants in the Connecticut area, but suffice to say that we’ve had to do our share of re-doing other accountants’ work. In some cases, we’ve recovered significant sums during an amendment process, by reviewing an old return (from the last 3 years), and taking advantage of ethical and legal tax credits and deductions which other accountants don’t utilize.
And with the passage of “tax reform” for future tax years, (The TCJA as we accountants call it, or the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act), the opportunities for savings are significant.
So, even more than just making your current year tax filings as gentle as possible … we want to give you a gift:
