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. It turns out that not even Revenu Quebec (“RQ”) is familiar with some of their own tax rules and many of the elderly in this Province (and likely elsewhere in Canada) have been doing their taxes… Read More The Elderly and Taxes Gone Wrong: A Not-So-Funny Discovery by The Funny Accountant
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.

And it is for a great cause.” Mitch: “But, what if I put my Movember campaign out there in the universe and no one donates… Read More Movember & The Funny 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
So I’ve been tossing around a few “not-so-obvious” choices for a Halloween costume since my sexy nurse outfit was fully and completely NIXED by the Missus. My first thought was something ironic….like the Crooked Accountant: Once again, nixed, I thought of other ironic choices like the Sketchy Accountant or the Taxi Accountant but the consensus… Read More Tax Tip Tuesdays with The Fuzzy Accountant!
So a client came into the office the other day (didn’t happen at all) and asked me the following question (an imaginary question from my imagination): “Mr. Funny Accountant, what the heck is the “Debt Ceiling” and why do I even care?” Being the of the curious variety of person, I looked into the topic… Read More Thursday Thoughts: Seriously, What the HECK is the Debt Ceiling??!
So I’m probably going to be really, really fat one day. I love my McDonald’s (nuggets!) and outside of mowing the lawn, taking care of my garden and 2 leagues worth of summer softball, I don’t partake in many physical fitnessy activities. That’s the bad news (for me, mostly). There really is no bad news for… Read More Tax Tip Tuesdays – A 15% discount on Quidditch Lessons? Thanks Canada!
Don’t worry, be happy! Hashtag DWBH! Words (and weird acronyms) to live by in the Autumn season here in Montreal. The sun is shining, the apples are pickable, the leaves are a-changing and we don’t have to wear massive jackets and shovel tons of the white stuff just yet. So this week’s post is dedicated… Read More Tax Tip Tuesdays – Don’t Worry Be Happy, It’s Fall in Montreal!
