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’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 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.
