Accounting is Not a DIY Job.

To paraphrase an old term - an individual who has himself as an accountant has a fool for a client.  Just as in the courtroom the penalty for amateurism may be severe.  For some reason, the IRS just doesn’t have a very good sense of humor!  How your accounting is prepared and submitted is critical to your business and your life.

The truth is, hiring the right accountant may be as important as the right lawyer, surgeon, or auto mechanic.  They can all save you a great deal of grief.  You want someone who dreams numbers.  If they have a degree in accounting that would be preferable.  Experience is also important in making your choice.

Great news Las Vegas!  You have Mike Mathews.  He is a certified public accountant with many years of experience.  Mike has an office located on beautiful Regatta Drive in The Lakes and serves all of the Vegas/Henderson area.  I know it’s August, but you will want to get to know Mike Mathews for your next personal and/or business taxes.  So call him at (702) 240-5237.

What's to do in Las Vegas, August 2017

(Click the link above for more information)

"The summer is almost at a close in Vegas, and for many it is a good time to hit up the Strip before the Labor Day weekend crowds and cooler days start to roll in."

Don’t Forget the Quarterlies.

As we have written before, taxes for business owners are anything BUT April 15th once per year.  There is this little matter of quarterlies and if you don’t stay on top of it the IRS will be sending you a big, fat bill with a penalty.  Tax due dates for business men and women were established many moons ago.  It is up to you to stay compliant!

Keep these dates in mind…June 15, September 15, and January 15, 2018.  These are your next three quarterly business tax due dates.  As you read this, you may be slightly late on that first one, but there is time to catch up.  Do you do the plumbing at your business?  Do you repair electrical problems?  Then, why would you do all of your own accounting?

You have a business because you offer products and/or services that others need.  Mike Mathews has an office located in Northwest Las Vegas because he is our area’s personal and business tax accountant.  Please take a few minutes and visit the website then call him for all of your accounting needs at (702) 240-5237.
