New! Sending me your tax files


November 10th, 2011

To my clients: Please note that it is now easier than ever to send me your tax files (e.g. Simply Accounting backups, Quick Books backup, etc.)

On my home page, look in the bottom right hand corner.  Click on Choose File, then browse to your file.  Then click on Upload File Now, and the file is sent to me.   This is faster and more efficient than emailing.

(I would request that you either send me an email or give me a phone call to notify me that you sent the file.)

Thanks to Nick Gunn from Scotia Systems for doing this.

It’s going to be truly interesting to watch the 2012 budget come out, early next year.  One commentator who watches these things is predicting that we will see some substantial changes in this budget, as this will be the Conservative government’s first budget with a majority.

Is it possible that we might see family income splitting earlier than expected?  The promise during last election was to get family income splitting once the deficit is eliminated……. but face it, what are the chances of a balanced budget happening before the next election?  And won’t the political party of today want to take full credit for family income splitting?
