Veteran's day 2021 is approaching. The complicated life of military personnel and their families doesn't get any less complex during tax season, so I figured I would try to uncomplicate it for you by sharing some of the unique tax rules that apply to active and retired military. I will also briefly touch on the work opportunity tax credit (WOTC) available as an incentive for employers looking to hire a qualified veteran. Let's get started.

Unpopular Opinion – Tax Refunds

By |2021-09-02T14:24:06-04:00September 2nd, 2021|Categories: Quickies with Bette|Tags: , , , , , |

Hi, Bette Hochberger or CPA, CGMA. And on today's Business Quickie, I'm going to tell you about an unpopular opinion that I have. So I know a lot of people really love getting tax refunds. There are all kinds of ads that say, "how to spend your refund, refund, refund, refund." People can't wait to get that refund check, but here's the big butt, why do I not like it? It's your money. You're not getting free money from the government. You're getting your own money back to you. So my unpopular opinion is don't create these huge tax refunds and don't think your CPA is amazing just because they get you a big tax refund.

The Scouts Teach Business Lessons?

By |2021-08-23T12:08:26-04:00August 23rd, 2021|Categories: Quickies with Bette|

We got to go out and do this very high-level Scout training called Wood Badge. It's a fantastic program. It's all about leadership, leading teams, leading yourself, which is where it starts. You learn a lot. It's a very intense week, with so many things. But one of the essential things that we talk about is how you can't do what you do because that's how you've always done it. Especially for us as accountants, we fall into a rut. We have a saying; it’s called SALLY, same as last year. It's our standard operating procedure to do what we've always done because why change things?

The Olympics Are Taxing

Hi, I'm Bette Hochberger, CPA, CGMA. And today, we're going to talk about the Olympics because they're going on right now, and even though there's a bit of controversy around the games and some of the athletes, I like to bring it back to my favorite topic: taxes. Specifically, taxes that Olympians must pay on their winnings and complexities within that tax.

Americans celebrate Independence day every July fourth, but did you know about the unjust taxes prior that led to the separation from Great Britain? America declared Independence from Great Britain mainly because of taxation without representation. As an accountant, I find this history fascinating, so I want to share that history with you.
