CPA can’t get an interview

I’m in give up mode. I’m a CPA with decades of experience.. primarily in tax and with large and small business and individual clients. I’ve been working for peanuts for the past few years as my full-time job morphed into a sometime job. I’ve been working for a staffing company as a waiter or bartender to get by, but the money is minuscule. I’m
pretty sure it’s my age, but I can’t even get an interview. Working on my QuickBooks Pro Desktop…

When Choosing An Employer, Culture Matters

When determining whether an employer is the right fit for you, it is important to find out about its culture. Companies are as different as the people who work there and run the business. For better and worse, culture and leadership are inextricably linked. Founders and influential leaders often set the initial culture of their organizations. Over time an organization’s leaders can also shape culture…

Hello! So I have been having issues with being paid correctly and I have called the payroll department at the company I worked for and asked if they could send me a copy of my paystubs from 7 months until now. They said they didn’t have access to that because they switched payroll companies and no longer has access to my old paystubs from before March of this year! Is that illegal for them to not have my pay records available?

Filing Taxes - Employee Paid as Independent Contractor (1099)

I have worked for a small electrical company full time for over a year now. I'm definitely an employee - yet I'm paid as an independent contractor (1099). The boss just writes me a check each week. I've expressed in the past that I'd prefer to have deductions taken out, etc. I'm now preparing to file my taxes. I read that I will owe double in taxes if I file as an independent contractor vs. an employee (paying both my share AND employer's share…

Yep, tax returns will be used for owed child support. You have to get caught up and make your payments for that to not happen…

I done my taxes and am furious. I have been a trucker for 47 years and always been able to use my over the road expenses as a tax deduction but this year they disallowed it. I was a o/o for 28 years and have driven for only four carriers the rest. Because of this disallowance I now owe the government another 9000.00 dollars in income taxes. I urge every driver to contact their representatives in Washington to change the tax code.


They got rid of the itemized deductions and they are doing the $14,000 or $24,000 , without all the paperwork. The problem is…

I recently had a phone interview with a prospect employer, they called me to come in and do the face to face interview went fine. I followed it up and sent in a thank you letter and I'm still waiting to hear from them but the employer told me they would make a decision very quickly, then HR had to do all the other paper work, they had me fill out the W-2 form the same day is that a good sign that I got the job.
