I write this with a heavy heart but a growing conviction. My conviction comes from the hope that those of us of sound mind and some degree of vision can unite and have our voices heard in order to prevent a very dangerous piece of proposed legislation from becoming law. I worry that should Bill… Read More For My Daughter, I Will Participate in the Bill 60 Hearings.
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
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!

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!
I like to think of myself as a Blogger. It makes me feel good inside…like I’m making a difference in the world.

Yes, I’ve picked up some accounting, bookkeeping… Read More Tax Tip Tuesdays: Accounting for Bloggers…Bloccounting!
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.
