Tax reform!

by The team at BBI Accounting


 

As of LATE Saturday night-the Senate approved their version of the tax reform bill. It's hard to keep track of all the last minute changes. This article does a good job of breaking down the differences between both the house and senate versions of the bill, as well as showing a comparison with current tax laws.

Jerry speaks at DFAS, the Department of Defense Finance and Accounting Service

by The team at BBI Accounting


Jerry spoke to a large group about the many changes in the 2015 tax code. It was a privilege and an honor to help them better understand the financial needs of the LGBT community. 

Jerry went thru a rigorous security clearance and search at the entrance to the facility. He was expecting a modest group in a conference room, and it turned out to be an auditorium with many engaged attendants!   It was a great experience to share the wealth of knowledge Jerry has on helping the community with their tax needs for over 10 years. He discussed the impact of marriage on taxes, the needs of the small business owner, and answered questions.

2015 brought many changes, and keeping up can be difficult. Jerry strives to get as much information out there as possible, so people may be better informed. Here at BBI, we spend time making sure we keep current, and have many printed materials that suit individual needs. 

We will be sharing much of the same information presented by Jerry here on the blog, and on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/BBIAccounting in the coming weeks. 

Stay tuned!
