Joined 6 years ago from Pennsylvania. Last activity 5 weeks ago.




Also follow me on:

I am Registered Tax Return Preparer (RTRP) and a partner in 3 national brand tax preparation stores in Pennsylvania. I see common people with common tax issues and sometimes, not so common issues. I write about some of these issues so that others can learn and hopefully understand our complicated income tax system a little better.

In addition to tax preparation, I am interested in tax and financial planning, retirement planning and frugal living. My wife and I have learned a lot getting our adult children raised and started in life. I hope to expand my hubs to include some of these topics.

My wife and I also enjoy traveling and spending time at our camp on a lake in Maine (the profile photo is from our camp). Yes, we even have timeshares, something most financial planners would not recommend.
