Tax Strategies Class
Wednesday, March 4 • 10 am to 11:30 am • GFWAR Auditorium
Many of us assume our accountants take care of our taxes…but forget that we are the ones giving them the numbers and records they are using to prepare our tax return. This seminar, presented by Thomas Rich of Bradford and Company, Inc., will help identify between $2,500 and $27,000 in new deductions that can be used right away to pocket thousands in tax savings. These deductions are based in tax law, but presented in simple English that all of us can easily understand. Register Here
