Surely, you should have known that a tax accountant couldn’t write a book that didn’t have a chapter about taxes. I had to do it. I just had to.

Jesus said to render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and unto God the things that are God’s. This basically means. Pay your taxes. You may think you are too poor to pay your taxes. Or you may say, how can I pay God and the taxman too?

When it came time for Jesus to pay his taxes, he got the coin out of the mouth of a fish.

Planning for tax day should start early in the year. Keep accurate records. Save your receipts for donations to charities. Mark your due dates for estimated tax payments on the calendar you see every day. If it is the one at your job, MARK IT.

Talk to your tax advisor regularly and keep them informed of any tax related decisions you are making during the year. Let them in on your financial planning sessions. It’s their job. By letting them use their God given talents, you’re helping yourself and them in the process.

They can help you to plan so that you don’t end up feeling like you’re poverty stricken. They have tax libraries to help you to get every legally allowable deduction you are entitled to have.

Remember in order to be taxed you have to have received money. If you pay taxes, you can thank the Lord you earned enough to need to do so.

If you are self-employed, set aside part of each job for the taxman.

If you haven’t been filing and want to get current a professional can help you to file the needed returns. Part of financial serenity is being able to sleep at night because your taxes are all in order.

It’s my job to help you to do what is right.
