Effective Financial Documentation Strategies for Palmdale Taxpayers

A few timely things to get to, before I offer you my thoughts on a good task for you to do this week… First of all, the IRS has apparently caught up on processing their backlogged mail that stacked up during COVID closures.

Tax Pro World is abuzz about the increase of the Social Security wage base standard. Well, I should clarify — most of Tax Pro World is taking naps this week and not really thinking much about taxes whatsoever, ha!

Tax and Financial Planning for Multi-Generational Caretaking for Palmdale Families

Say it with me: four more weeks. Four more weeks until this crazy election cycle is behind us and we can all return to normal here in Palmdale. Except, well, if it isn’t.

Trump’s Tax Returns Are Not The Real Story by Rodney Williams

Like many things political, one of the best ways to look at the tempest of the day is analytical bemusement. This is (always) especially true when it comes to tax issues. And I might have a take today that could surprise you. I am not interested in getting into political matters here (though this issue is obviously very political). I … Read More

Time To Dream With Your Friendly Palmdale Tax Professional

With the passing of Justice Ginsburg 45 days before the election, we have officially entered the political crazy season. This — on top of so much conflict surrounding public health measures.

Labor Tax Updates By Rodney Williams

Everything about this year since March has just felt a little … off. And I mean aside from all of the cultural and political turmoil we’re living through. The seasonality of everything feels different too.

Finally, the IRS issued guidance on Friday evening about payroll tax deferrals. And, as we’ve been communicating … this may not be a very helpful program for most Palmdale taxpayers. In fact, it’s actually up to employers (not employees) whether or not to withhold Social Security payroll taxes from their employees’ paychecks from September through December. And again — this … Read More
