Tax Court Says Bank 'Thank You' Points Are Taxable Income
Gone are the days when a deposit would earn you a balky toaster; today, banks routinely offer “thank you” points–rewards programs in which a customer accumulates redeemable credits that may be exchanged for tangible merchandise, often of considerable value.
And while these thank you points can often be swapped for, among other things, a plane ticket, a differentiation must be drawn between the incentives offered by banks and the frequent flyer programs offered by the major airlines.

Starting Sept. 2, the IRS Office of Appeals is changing the way it handles appeals to examination decisions. Under the new Appeals Judicial Approach and Culture (AJAC) project, appeals officers are “no longer going to be examiners or investigators,” Appeals Team Manager Philip A. Oyoto told preparers at the IRS National Tax Forum (Aug. 19–21) in National Harbor, Md.
In a July 2 memo to appeals staff, John V. Cardone, the IRS’s director of Policy, Quality and Case Support, stated that the program reinforces “Appeals’ quasi-judicial approach to the way it handles cases, with the goal of enhancing internal and external customer perceptions of a fair, impartial and independent Office of Appeals.”

Let’s face it! Finding a good accountant/bookkeeper is not an easy task. We've heard too many small business owners express how frustrating it can be to find a qualified individual, until they met us; and, I have experienced the same myself over the life of NestEggg. In 2012, for example, we spent over 500 hours reviewing 75+ resumes, interviewing upwards of 35 individuals, testing 20 candidates to find only two people that met the NestEggg Standard!
Now, fortunate enough to have the knowledge, tools and resources to fully evaluate these candidates. However, most small business owners are simply not equipped to evaluate and identify a quality accounting professional – and they certainly don’t have 500 hours available to do so!
