You Can Be Among The Earliest!
Now that the holidays are (finally) over, and the local swimming pool doesn’t open for such a lo-o-o-o-o-ong time, we’ve arrived at that time of the year which typically represents a big “sag” in excitement and festive cheer in the lives of many.
Especially if you don’t ski, and if you don’t get as many Valentines as you deserve, and if you’re allergic to green beer.
But don’t give in to the boredom and lingering ennui of the winter sag season!
You can always find fun ways to lift your spirits – exciting ways to spend your time so that the dull days of winter just seem to fly right on by.
Here’s one idea: Get your bookkeeping information in to your Friendly Bean Counter (FBC) (me) early this year!
(It’s worth noting that, for businesses, getting W-9s and stuff like that in now would no longer be considered “early,” since some deadlines are coming up in just a few short dull winter days.)
(In fact, for firms filing as corporations, your deadline is in March! Festive!)
But why wait until March or April, when your tax accountant will be jumping up and down and muttering unpleasant words in anticipation of the arrival of your 2022 bookkeeping records, when you can get all the enjoyment of getting your bookkeeping buttoned up now?
Just imagine what cheer you can derive by compiling those receipts, those deposit slips, those invoices, and all those other bits of information your FBC needs to get your books ready for your tax accountant!
And imagine the look of joy on everyone’s face when you submit them before the NFL playoffs are even over!
If you’re ready to join the party that IS bookkeeping for tax season, reach out to your FBC today to find out more about how you can make life much easier on her, on your tax accountant, and (ultimately) on yourself.
And if you’re NOT ready to join the party, shoot me an email anyway, and let’s see how we can GET you ready!
Here, you’re more than a number. But if you want a number, try “90.”
April 15 is fewer than that many days away.

- 2Are you planning a Receipt Gathering Party for February 12? It’ll be more exciting than any football game that might be on
- 3How can your FBC help you get ready for The Tax Man early this year, and skip the usual stress of tax season?

Sadie’s Paw Prints
(Fur) Baby, It’s Cold Outside
Did you know that dogs can get frostbite?
Woof, Sadie here, beloved caretaker of Dottie, and this month I’ll be barking a little about making sure your best friend is safe and healthy during the cold winter months.
Some studies show that dogs start getting uncomfortable when the thermometer dips below about 45 degrees. Sure, we wear our fur coats all year round… but would YOU want to be outside in forty degrees, even with your coat on, for hours at a time?
And you know how many days we have around here when the temperature never gets much above 45!
If your four-legged buddy is a puppy, or an elderly pooch… sick, or a small breed… or any one of a number of dogs that have thin coats… you really shouldn’t leave them outside for very long in the winter, and especially not when the temperatures are at freezing and below.
If it gets down to 20 degrees, your dog will be vulnerable to frostbite, and even hypothermia!
So, a quick trip outside to potty is one thing, but don’t leave your best friend out in the cold. We want to continue warming your heart for years to come.
What Will You Do To Make The World Better in 2023?
It’s the perfect time of year to consider your planned giving for 2023, and we hope you’ll consider the fine work of Angel Covers, one of our favorite non-profit organizations.
We’re proud to support this outstanding organization and the many things they do to make the world a better place.
For instance, the GATE program (Girls’ Advocacy Through Education) works to keep girls in Thailand in school, and away from villains who are always perpetrating human trafficking crimes in that region.
The organization also supports the Vill-Angel Medical Clinic, which is doing amazing work in supplying much-needed medical and health services to a remote agricultural region in Kenya.
You can even sign up to support a specific child through Angel Covers, and make sure at least one kid in the world has enough to eat and sufficient clothes to wear.
If you’re looking for the best “bang for your buck” when it comes to charitable giving, you probably can’t do better than lending your support to the many fine programs offered by Angel Covers.
