TurboTax Amazon

The recent TurboTax 2013 ads/television commercials focused on the accounting experience of the TurboTax 2013 staff while also pointing out the lack of experience of tax preparers from other major tax preparation companies. These ads sought to undermine the credibility of tax professionals from other companies by claiming that these professionals worked in plumbing and retail jobs outside of tax season.

They made several valid points about the ads, but ultimately, the district court ruled in favor of allowing the TurboTax 2013 ads to continue to air.

The United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri ruled on the advertising case, and the court decided that the adverts were legal. H&R Block was not mentioned in any of the Intuit TurboTax 2013 ads but they are … Read the rest

The IRS is busy updating tax forms and “completing programming and testing of its processing systems.”  The update and intended improvements should allow the majority of US tax payers to file their tax returns starting January 30.  … Read the rest

Bipartisan Changes Needed To Reduce Debt

Reduce Debt

Spending cuts and reforms to government entitlement programs are very necessary, according to an interview with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on National Public Radio. The interview was broadcast nationally on Thursday morning. Pelosi said that she feels the government should be scrutinizing every dollar in the budget in order to reduce costs and prevent future generations of Americans from paying for financial mistakes made today. This applies as much to the defense budget as it does “on the domestic side,” she said.

Other segments of the interview featured Pelosi praising the recent budget agreement, saying the rise in taxes on the most wealthy Americans brings “more fairness” to the policies.

While she supports reform of these entitlements, she does not support any … Read the rest
