Are you ready for another government shutdown?

December 10, 2013
Sorry, we're closed!

Tax season is just around the corner……and so is another possible government shutdown. I don’t know about you, but it seems to me that it is entirely possible that our dysfunctional Congress could fail to agree on funding the government one more time. The deadline is January 16 and with the holiday break, and the seeming lack of concern being demonstrated, we could be in for major pain.

The AICPA notes that during the October shutdown only 9.3% of the IRS was deemed “essential” and kept functioning. The AICPA has already contacted the IRS about the shutdown issue urging that their contingency plan keep the Taxpayer Advocate functioning.

It’s depressing to everyone that Congress just can’t get its act together, but it will be a calamity for CPAs and their clients if the IRS isn’t available during any part of tax season.

Trust me. You're not the only one! I'm engaged and pliannng my wedding (for September next year thank God). This past month I've been living between my current apartment and my house that I'm moving into at the end of the month. We're still in the renovation process. On top of all that, my web development! TONS of projects in the works. In the end though, you do have to take some for yourself. I usually like to take my dog for a walk or watch some TV. Unfortunately I do need to develop a better balance between work and home. I'm hoping things we get better within the next month when we finally move into our house.
