Just got a comment on my "Office Update" post that I think I should respond to. An Anonymous poster writes "Wouldn't it be better to talk about tax related news instead of making this a forum for your own personal conundrums?" The answer is that my blog is my personal forum. The purpose of the blog is not only to discuss the US tax system but the ins and outs of running my tax preparation business. And the ceiling falling onto my desk and computer and the ongoing mess is part of that business. If you are strictly looking for tax info there are blogs that specialize in that. Or go to the IRS web site and sign up for their e-mail updates.
In Our Taxing Times, I will blog about tax issues that are of interest to my potential and actual client base, keep clients aware of what is happening in the office, and vent about issues that are important to me.
