Presidential Tax Returns

With all of the talk of late regarding the tax returns of the presidential candidates, we thought it might be interesting to look at the returns of a number of past presidents, vice presidents, and candidates.

Below is a link that will take you to a site which hosts tax returns from the current president and vice president, back through Richard Nixon, as well as the returns of Franklin Roosevelt.

The 1937 return of President Roosevelt is especially interesting – it’s a letter to his IRS commissioner explaining he can’t possibly determine his tax liability, and asking the service to do it for him. Though a bit blurry, still pretty entertaining.$file/F_Roosevelt_1937.pdf

New Team Member – Part 1

As the new year gets into full swing, and we begin to rev up for the coming busy season, we’re excited to bring on two new team members. We’ll be bringing them to you over the course of two blog posts.

The first is Sarah Hinz, our new director of lasting impressions.  She started with us in late December, and has already been a great contributor to the team. A link to her biography on the RWR website is below.

Work = Fun?

We’ve all heard the old saying “It’s not fun, that’s why they call it work”.  Considering the significant change in the workforce expected over the next decade – with many of the baby-boomers retiring and the Millennial generation (or Generation Y) becoming more present in business, that just doesn’t seem to fit anymore. The Millennials are far more concerned with work-life balance, advancing quickly, and achieving a feeling of satisfaction with their work than with a lofty paycheck and life long job security.

The Bloomberg Businessweek article, linked below, gives a great perspective on this shift in thinking, and leaves you with some great points to think about.

To that end, we have fun to do, so make it a great day.
