November 20, 2012


The 2012 election: What does it mean for tax planning?

But a great deal of uncertainty remains over what sort of tax legislation lawmakers will pass — and when. This article reviews the tax law changes set to go into effect in 2013 if Congress fails to act, and it details possible year end tax planning strategies to implement.

Warning of deceptive solicitations to Colorado business owners

We want you to be aware of a possibly deceptive solicitation issued by “Compliance Services” to Colorado businesses, including several of our clients. The entity has mailed solicitations titled “Annual Minutes Requirement Statement Directors and Shareholders”, seeking a $125 fee to prepare annual minutes. According to Secretary of State Scott Gessler, "Though most corporations are required to keep records of annual minutes, they are not required to file these records with any third party."

If you have already sent a check to this company, you may want to take action such as placing a stop payment on that check.

We wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!
