The Architect of Your Business
Wishing You a Very Happy New Year!
Happy New Year and Welcome 2019! Personally, I have never been a big fan of new year’s resolutions, but I know lots of people are. So If you are one of those people, we wish you much success! In the office, our resolution is to make it through the upcoming tax season!     

YES – tax season is here again! We will be uploading our Engagement Letter to SmartVault shortly as well as the Extension Request Form (if you need one). Tax Organizers will be uploaded shortly as well. The million dollar question this year – when do we get to start filing tax returns? Remains to be seen given the new tax laws, new tax forms, and the government shut down. Once we know – we will be screaming that from the roof top!    

And a quick nod to 2018 if we may! It was our best year yet and we couldn’t do it without you! Thank you again for your continued business! Happy New Year!

Achieving Success Comes Down to One Thing
Everyone finds success differently, whether it’s by pulling bootstraps a little tighter or knowing the right people at the right time. In my case, I found success only after doing something I typically dread: networking. But after moving to a new city—where I knew no one, and no one knew me—I didn’t really have a choice. If I wanted to get somewhere, connecting with people was the key.

Tax Preparer Due Diligence
You may notice that we are/will be asking you a lot of additional questions this year. Why? The IRS has identified several areas of concern for fraud and identity theft.
