It was another year of great growth for my firm (75% growth, by my count). Perhaps as the year goes on, I will tell more of the story of my firm, how it started with 3 clients and a dream in 2009 and is now my full-time endeavor. It hasn’t been easy, but my firm is getting bigger and bigger every year.
This was a long, exhausting tax season. I haven’t really had time to process everything I learned this season, but it was a marathon.
I have compiled a list of more than 50 things I want to research this offseason, based on situations that arose during the season or things that clients have going on in their financial lives that I need to learn more about so I can serve them better.
I am also planning to write a desk reference guide for accountants regarding the tax issues of same-sex marriage. I also want to add a “companion guide” for same-sex married couples who are trying to do their taxes on their own. If anyone — accountant or do-it-yourselfer — has a topic you would like to see addressed, feel free to e-mail me with it and I will make sure to include it.
The research and writing will keep me busy in the offseason, as well as all the quarterly calculations for self-employed clients and the other things that pop up from time to time. And before we know it, it will be Tax Season 2013!
