Tax Season Preparation is Madness


The NCAA’s March Madness is an exciting time for many people. With the best in the NCAA competing for the title of champion, it is easy to get sucked into the development of the bracket and lively game weekends. But for many people in the accounting world, March is a little mad for a different reason.

Tax season.

When you own a business, there are a lot of responsibilities you balance. Sometimes the last thing on your mind is ensuring your books are cleaned up and prepared for tax season. But if you wait too long, it is a mad rush to ensure you get everything together before April. Maybe you haven’t reconciled your bank account since July. Or maybe you have some (okay, a lot) of transactions sitting in uncategorized because, at the time, you said, “I’ll figure out where that goes later.” Well, now, later is here, and you are in full panic mode.

How are you going to get everything completed?

Instead of watching basketball games and filling out brackets, you are stuck at the office with some late nights ahead of you.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

We take care of all the accounting day-to-day tasks and make sure everything is squared away. That way, come March, you can do what everyone else is doing, relaxing and enjoying the games.

I'm an experienced finance professional with more than 20 years of experience. I've held several Controller positions throughout my career, most notably with an internationally respected commercial real estate investment, management, and brokerage firm. In this role, I was responsible for all aspects of accounting across the company's many operational divisions - including internet services, real estate development, property management, and brokerage services. As our company operated in multiple countries and currencies, it was essential to me that all financial reports were accurate and compliant.
