There are over 74,000 pages in the Internal Revenue Code governing taxes with close to 50,000 of those pages added since 1984. If the tax code continues to grow at the same pace as it has over the course of the last century, it could surpass 100,000 pages by 2050. 

Stop and think about that for a moment.Taxation has continued to evolve into an ever winding road filled with twists, turns, changes and challenges that impact the course of our daily social and economic objectives. Whether you are an individual or business, employee or independent contractor, someone who is just starting their working career or looking forward to retirement, this blog is intended to help educate you and inspire you in to actively making smarter financial decisions. We will cover topics that make headline news and those that can go seemingly unnoticed to the general public. Why? We believe that you should be able to keep as much money as you earn because you worked hard for it. As we continue to write on various topics, feel free to reach out to us about something you want to learn about and we will make it happen.

We thank you for taking the time to be part of our ever growing family and we are looking forward to the future while taking care of the present.
