It's Time!
Don't let this year slip by...It's time to analyze 2015  financials and set your goals for 2016. 

We have already begun to get busy with income taxes.  If you need a tax organizer, you can go to our website  and on the right hand side, under "Downloadable Tax Client Forms" is the 2015 tax organizer.  Please use this as a guide for getting your income tax paperwork together.  You may not need everything on the list, but it may "trigger" some deductible items you haven't thought of before.  This is also where you will find the Client Service Agreement that you need to sign in order for Gundersons Bookkeeping to do your taxes.

If you need our help, make sure you give us a call Monday - Thursday from 9:00am to 5:00pm or Friday from 9:00am to 3:00pm!

What's new this year?

We will also be requesting a copy of your driver's license this year, if we prepare your taxes.  The IRS is asking tax preparers' to input your DL number before E-filing.  This is the IRS's attempt to crack down on all of the fraud that has occurred in the previous years.

Reading recommendation

The book for this month is EntreLeadership by Dave Ramsey. I recommend every business owner to get this book, and it's only around $15.00.

        EntreLeadership will teach you how to:

  • Invest in your team.
  • Delegate so you can grow your company beyond you.
  • Find the perfect hire.
  • Let people who aren't a fit go with dignity.
  • Lead your team instead of just "managing" employees who are waiting for paychecks.
  • Empower your team through creative compensation.
  • Take ownership and drive growth with loyalty and without gossip.
  • Handle money in a way that sets your business up for debt-free success.
Are you using apps in YOUR BUSINESS?
Say goodbye to the headache of manually logging every trip. You should try MileIQ! It is an app that automatically calculates the value of your drives, and at 54 cents a mile, (2016 IRS standard mileage rate)  it adds up fast.  Easily mark your drives as business, personal, medical, charity or an custom category you wish.  Log any additional details you need for deducting mileage on your tax return or
reporting mileage expenses to your employer. The great news is that through April 15th, Gundersons Bookkeeping can offer you a 30% discount on MileIQ. Try MileIQ for free by downloading the app to your IOS or Android smartphone.  Upgrade to an annual unlimited-drive plan by April 15, 2016 and save 30%. (To subscribe at the discounted rate, sign in to your MileIQ web dashboard, click "Get Unlimited Drives", and use promo code TAX30PRO at checkout.)

True leadership is servanthood. Put the interests of others at the center of your decisions.” – Dave Ramsey

A Recent Success
In January, Kristin was asked to be the Waller Area Chamber of Commerce speaker at the monthly luncheon. Kristin talked briefly on the 2016 tax changes.  She also spoke on how to start your 2016 year off right in your business by setting goals, and doing a strategic business analysis/planning  for your business. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the presentation and mentioned how they can use it in their personal lives as well.
