I’ve been very affected by what happened in the Philippines last week, even safely ensconced in our Mobile tax preparation office.

Well, file this one under “Offbeat News” (or not). Filling out a tax return in Mobile (or elsewhere) is complicated, apparently.

Richard Lindsey On: Avoiding An Audit On Your Taxes (Part 1 of 2)

Sometimes I see a story which reminds me of the very reasons why I started doing what I do, here at this Mobile tax preparation business.
