2012 Tax Law Changes

Last week I linked you to information about personal tax planning and things you should consider now to reduce your tax burden for 2011. Most of those items dealt primarily with individual taxes.

In case you are running a business and interested in what’s coming at you in 2012, I had an article published last week in the Long Beach Business Journal that touched on the major items you should be aware of that are changing, effective next week.

For a look at it go to our website at: and click on the link in the center of the header.

Here’s wishing all of you a safe and a Happy New Year!

Now is the time

It’s been about two months since I wrote my last entry here. In that blog, I said I was heading for the Eastern Sierras in search of places with no cell service. I’m happy to report that because Verizon has such good coverage these days it took me a great deal of time looking for that place. I spent six weekends this fall out in the field and it was wonderful. I never did quite find it though, and I will probably have to go back and continue the search…

However, it’s the holidays and year end, and I would be remiss if I didn’t admonish you to plan for your tax liabilities now. I realize we all have other things on our mind, but now is really the best time to make moves that will affect your tax liabilities. I won’t bore you with a list here, but for some good ideas you can visit our website at:

Here’s wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
