My wife and I traveled to saint-Jerome yesterday for a mini-vacation, and some aspects of the trip stuck in my mind more than others. Our contact with the locals was fairly limited: dinner at a local chain restaurant, chatting with the hotel owner, and a trip to the Metro grocery store for some snacks. But these… Read More Dear PQ, Your Services Are No Longer Required.
I’ve received a great response (and surprising since anyone but my Mom reading my blog still surprises me!….thanks Mom.) to my blog post last Thursday on my feelings on Bill 60 and my intention to present before the National Assembly during the public debate beginning in January. I thought I’d clarify the plan since I… Read More For My Daughter: My Brief to the Quebec National Assembly
So what is up with this money that Governments of Canada, Quebec, Ontario (or insert any other province here) send me every month or quarter or at the end of the year? Ever wonder? I kind of didn’t….even us accountants have the same saying as you normal humans: “don’t look a gift horse in the… Read More What’s Up With All This Money that the Government Sends Me???
I remain the Funny Accountant, however what I discovered the other day was more scary and sad than funny.

The 2 questions I get asked the most often are “what do you charge?” and “what do I need to give you?” Trust me that the answers to both questions are more than you’ll want to read in a weekly blog post! But I’m a nice guy (it’s probably because of the Movember beard) so… Read More A Free Meeting With The Funny Accountant: You Bring the Cookies.
First of all, a thank you to @Christellasays and @YummyMummyClub for the original blog post that led me to write my own. My daughter Rose was taught her Hulk Face by her Daddy right around the same time she began communicating by more conventional means. In fact, by the time she mastered her Hulk, she… Read More “I Want My Daughter to Be Weird” -The Daddy Accountant, 2013
Yes, this is technically a Tax Tip Tuesday…but I guess a melancholy start to the week has gotten me in the mood to change the world. And since I have no clue how to do that, I’ll share my Sunday and Monday experiences and maybe it’ll light a fire under someone out there! It obviously… Read More Tax Tip Tuesdays: The Melancholy Yet Thoughtful Accountant
I often get asked, “Mr. Funny Accountant (sometimes I even get a ‘Sir’ at the end), how do I get some cash back from all the donations I make throughout the year?” Easy one! It’s as simple as claiming those donation receipts on your personal tax return (for those of you donating personally and not… Read More Tax Tip Tuesdays: Movember + Donations = Phurry Philanthropy
Here’s a quick and dirty story that goes out to all the Moms and Dads who have ever given their little one a sippy sup or a bottle (AKA all of you).
