Have the Specialist Do It

Thanks to Lady Jaye’s very Han Solo-like “I have a bad feeling about this” regarding my 2005 tax return, I asked my CPA friend from NoVA to take a look at my 2005 taxes. He said that I claimed my employee stock sale incorrectly, which is why I owed the .gov $1600 more than I […]

If I Can’t Ride ….
