Constant Vigilance in Financial Affairs

After months of intense negotiations and a bitter contract dispute, lianhanshee has succeeded in hiring me as the head of the community's tax department.

I am a licensed and semi-practicing CPA, so feel free to hit me with anything tax-related you have questions about.

You may not get an answer right away, because I may have to go look the answer up. I don't carry the full internal revenue code around in my head, unfortunately!

every penny counts! [Jun. 22nd, 2004|09:57 pm]
Constant Vigilance in Financial Affairs

I've had a big-ass jar of change on my dresser for a long time now - possibly a couple of years. Periodically I deposit the pennies, nickels and dimes from my wallet into the jar. (I like to keep quarters in my wallet for parking meters and such.)

Yesterday, in a fit of desperation over my financial situation, I took the almost-full jar to the bank to cash in the change. I figured that it was probably only $15 or so, but that it would give me some walking-around money for the week.

Would you believe that it actually totaled fifty bucks??!!!

I promptly deposited it in my checking account, and will commence collecting change anew.

Let this be a lesson: every penny, nickel and dime counts.

Constant Vigilance! [Jun. 22nd, 2004|08:09 pm]
Constant Vigilance in Financial Affairs

Announcing money_days! The motto: Constant Vigilance in Financial Affairs!

Inspired by the lovely beautifulday72 and her faithful posting in food_days, I created a community where we can encourage each other to post entries to bitch about money, to track spending (thus increasing accountability), to seek advice, or to share your progress with personal money goals. No great detail necessary.

I'm envisioning all kinds of posts, but here are what I was thinking I'd post about:
  • "Balanced checkbook today" that continues on to extoll the virtues of Quicken,

  • "Yay! I've finally signed up for automatic debit to Sallie Mae and now I'll never be late with my loan payments again,"

  • "Qualifying for a mortgage sucks. I need to vent,"

  • "I'm reading Smart Women Finish Rich and I think it's brilliant/inspiring/a load of crap; anyone else?" and

  • "Anyone know whether I can deduct passive losses under section 469 of the internal revenue code?"
Okay, that last one is just a figment of my hyper-imagination.

And of course, you may feel free to post your appreciation for the faithful slave laborers hard workers who are striving to protect investors and the integrity of the securities markets, even though we understand there's a lot left to do.

If anyone feels like she or he would be better served by making this a friends-only or invite-only or some limited-type journal so as to make better use of it, please let me know.
