These Accountants Hate Doing Their Own Taxes

Here are all the important tax deadlines
Money
Retire with Money
Elizabeth O'Brien
I don’t do my own taxes, but I do enough preparation for my accountant to dread the whole process each spring. My accountant is a whiz, and she’s constitutionally suited to the job: patient, organized and good with numbers. Until now, I never thought to ask if she relishes doing her own taxes. Money recently wrote about accountants who hate doing their own taxes, even as they enjoy preparing returns for clients. We also spotlighted some financial advisors who don’t follow their own advice. No matter your day job, sometimes the pull of an impulse purchase is just too much to resist. Read about these (very honest!) professionals in today’s edition.

Best wishes,
Elizabeth

RETIRE WITH MONEY COMMUNITY NEWS
On a housekeeping note, I wanted to let everyone know that I never deliberately include articles that require you to log in to read them in “Retirement News from Around the Web.” But sometimes, it happens. Maybe a web site has changed its policy and I’m not aware of it, or maybe I don’t realize I’m automatically logged into a site, which is why I can see an article but you can’t. Feel free to let me know when that happens, as some of you already do.

And I’m always looking for volunteers for Reader of the Week, so if you’re interested in participating, or want to learn more, please let me know!
