Taxes.  Ugh.  If you are late in filing tax returns, here are some corrective steps to take.

And remember, if you have tax refunds due you, you must file the related tax return within 3 years of the tax return's original due date to claim the refunds.

A day in the life of a New York Food Vendor: Would you work this hard for $125 a day?

Glad to be back after a recess due to client tax commitments!

Let's start with this documentary article from the New York Times:   "A Day in the Life of Food Vendor".

The article profiles Mr. Kabir Ahmed who immigrated from Bangladesh 23 years ago.  He runs a halal food cart in Manhattan's financial district, along with one business partner and one assistant.  A fascinating read that is part food, part business ... and a lot of hard work.  A lot.  For which Mr. Ahmed makes about $125 a day, after paying expenses and sharing remaining revenue with his business partner and their assistant.
