Countdown to the end...tax deductions

The end is near!!!

No, I am not the doomsday person.

I am talking business.

Tomorrow is the last day you can add to your list of deductions.

First off you need to decide, "Do I need more deductions?"

If the answer is yes, then you need to decide what you need.

Major purchases add up fast, but o can the little things.

Copy papers, and ink.   Some pens and note pads.

Old style lock boxes for additional security.  (I use them for appraisers).

Don't delay, Not many hours left to get this done.

Hi William

Yes, it's that time again. I am adding a few more items in the expenses column today, but for the most part I should be all set.

I have a box where I toss most all my receipts that are business related during the year.  Then I find a rainy day after the beginning of the new year to ledger everything.

We normally try to anticipate what we need and we coodinate with our CPA on what is reasonable. I hate last minute decisions.

Good morning William.  Don't need any more for this year.  However, in 2017 I plan on making a few major purchases that are well overdue.

Good morning William. I think your reminder is appropriate. I love the photo though. Happy New Year.

I have added nothing this week to the deductions and only added to the income. The tax man cometh. Have a Happy New Year.
