Well, well, well....Look who decided to BLOG!
In the chaos of tax season, I've decided to take a mental break and post up something new to the website. Some people take walks around the block, others zone out, me? I'll blog...for now.
It's been far too long, but rest assured I've added blogging to my list of goals for 2013 (amongst many), I'll start small, say; once every quarter, then see if I can work up from there. I wouldn't want to set myself up for disappointment, so I'll start small and achieve my goals bit by bit (hopefully). :)
What's happening these days in the BBFS world? Well, for one....something is in the water on this side of town; two employees in the last six months became mothers! Woohooo! We have some new additions to the BBFS family; Teg and Torie; I'm sure many of you have already met them (if you visit us here at the office), for those of you who haven't...come by! Steal our candy! BBFS is also on Facebook...be sure to "LIKE" us. I haven't had much time to ramp up the marketing aspects of the company since we receive so many referrals from our already wonderful client base - thank you all!:)
Hey! We have some new neighbors and they're quite crafty. Sm(art) Studios (http://www.smartstudioslo.com) has moved in next door to our office it surely is one of the most "GREEN" businesses in town; specializing in arts and crafts Sm(art) offers a creative outlet for those who want a place to express themselves. Ran solely on donated goods by the local community, all proceeds paid to Sm(art) benefit the SLO Child Development Resource Center: http://www.childrensresource.org
Come by! Visit us, then head next door to expand the left side of your brain.
What a year thus far...our government continues to make changes to the tax law keeping us on our toes. We're constantly educating ourselves on new changes that will effect our clients. The most frustrating element in dealing with the IRS; this year....tax season didn't actually open until January 30th! Of course all individuals are still due by April 15th, but did they give us any leeway? Nope, unchanged. This results in many tax preparers having their clients bottleneck.
The IRS delay shows us how truly complex the changes are deep down. Taxpayers should note; this is not a year to consider doing taxes alone without professional help and current software.
