an enormous project is finally finished! I am sure that while I didn't make much profit on it, I am not taking a loss either. One of my clients owns a convenience store that is attached to a BP gas station. Of all things, he is filing a claim against BP for loss of business due to the oil spill. I haven't figured that one out yet - but it seems that nearly everyone with a business on the Gulf Coast has jumped at the chance to catch a ride on that train. Anyhow, I have had to reconstruct his monthly income and loss for the past three years - since he is yet another small business owner who is a firm believer in not bothering with any sort of monthly bookkeeping. I have prepared his tax returns for several years now and just recently convinced him to do his payroll and monthly sales tax reporting electronically. Anyhow, I am so glad to have this project marked off my list. And so next I am on to reminding my summer slackers about their 2010 tax returns!
