The difference between death and taxes is death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets.
Why does a slight tax increase cost you two hundred dollars and a substantial tax cut save you thirty cents?
The legal right of a taxpayer to decrease the amount of what otherwise would be his taxes, or altogether to avoid them, by means which the law permits, cannot be doubted.
Taxation is the price which civilized communities pay for the opportunity of remaining civilized.
The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax.
Roving & static deadlines
Pennsylvania or federal deadlines that fall on Saturday, Sunday or a holiday shift to the Monday or first business day after the holiday. However, Keystone’s local deadlines do not shift: you must file and pay online or postmark your filing by the deadline to avoid late fees and penalties.

Scams & more scams
The IRS never sends email, so no matter how “real” or intimidating it appears, it is a SCAM. And unless you’ve already received multiple mailed IRS notices, a phone call from the IRS is highly unlikely. In any case, never provide your bank or credit card information or social security number over the phone to someone claiming to be an IRS employee.
Here’s what our clients say about us:
Since 2003, Peter and his staff have taken on the burden of tax preparation for me, capably advising me on personal and professional tax strategies and preparing my returns quickly, professionally and perfectly. If I email or call with a question, a near-immediate response follows. Several times, Peter’s offered a key piece of advice that applies to my situation. It’s such a relief to know that he’s keeping track of things and letting me get on with the rest of my life and business.
I have trusted my business and personal finances to Augenblick & Company for over 30 years. Peter’s wisdom and his team’s professional perspective have advanced my business for predictable growth. Peter and team, thank you for your significant contribution to my company’s success by being an integral part of our business planning.
When we retained Augenblick & Company 25 years ago, we had a $700,000 business. Now our sales are over $30 million annually. They have been a great resource over the years.
What gives with interest rates?
The Federal Reserve Board, which sets the target interest rate that forms the basis for all other interest rates, has raised rates dramatically in 2018. We hear it’s planning more raises for 2019. A little history: From September 2007 to December 2008 the Federal...
What the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act means to your estate
The last chance the government has to tax you is when you die, and federal and state governments each take their cut. Current federal law allows a single individual to pass $11,180,000 to beneficiaries without them paying tax. (For married couples, it’s twice that...
What the 2018 Tax Cuts & Jobs Act means to your tax refund
As soon as the tax law changed, Uncle Sam elected to change the withholding tables, reducing the federal tax withheld from salaries and wages. So you may have seen an instant increase in your pay check. However, this means that while you probably owe less tax in 2018...
Key changes that may affect your personal tax liability
Good news: tax rates are reduced significantly. Not-so-good news: many deductions you may have counted on are removed or capped. DEDUCTIONS. Standard deduction for married couples is up: $24,000. But state and local itemized deductions are capped at $10,000....
What 2018 Cuts & Jobs Act means to YOU, personally
Yes, it will impact you. Do all the benefits really go to the top 1 percent, as we’ve read? We’ve modeled the new tax law for many clients and we’re finding that it reduces tax rates for almost everyone. We try not to generalize, so remember that the reality still...
Don’t trust a promise of tax savings
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn’t. That maxim goes for any promises from a tax preparer that he or she will save you money on your taxes. Until the professional has delved into your financials and all the documentation that you provide for the tax...
