I’ve been writing this blog now for eight years. A lot has changed in tax since I started, some for the good and some for the bad. I’ve had fun writing this, and my goals remain the same for the next eight years: To enlighten readers about tax issues impacting my clients (generally, related to gambling and small business owners) and other tax issues that I think are interesting and/or important.

One of my favorite sayings about tax is that it’s a combination of common sense and arcane rules. I try to have fun with this blog because tax is, to be honest, a dry topic. It’s also not much fun for most individuals; tax separates money from your wallet. It may be the price of civilization, but it’s not a fun price to pay. Thus, I try to have fun with the topics I cover.

So at eight years and eight days, happy belated birthday to my blog.
