All the votes have been tallied and all the precincts have reported…some people are happy with the outcome and some are not. Whether your Congress person won or not is not the issue at this point, the issue lies in what is going to happen in the lame duck session of Congress for the rest of the year and will you as a taxpayer be prepared. Here’s a quick rundown of what is on the table for taxpayers before the year ends:
• Bush Tax Cuts extended?
• Estate Tax?
• Health Care Reform?
I am not a betting man but would have to think that more than likely some taxes are going to go up. What taxpayers do before this year ends is important but you may need to call the psychic hotline or a crystal ball to assist you. When I looked into my crystal ball this is what I have come up with.
Be sure to speak to your tax professional (psychic) to ensure that all of your ducks are in a row for the upcoming tax season.
