Merry Christmas!

It’s almost hard to believe that here we are again near the end of December and the Holiday Season is upon us. That also means that the Income Tax Season isn’t far behind. During this Holiday Season, we’d like to take this opportunity to say, “Thanks for letting us serve as your accountants”. All of us in this office have certainly enjoyed working with you during the past year.

Our office is now preparing for the tax filing season which begins January of 2012. We would like to remind you that our job will be made easier, more efficient and especially less costly for you, if your income tax records are submitted to us in an organized fashion. To help you achieve that task we can send you a 2011 summary checklist. If you would prefer, we can also provide you with a pre-printed organizer that lists your 2010 tax information and provides space to place your 2011 information. To request, please send an email to with “Organizer” in the subject line.

It is not too late to do some tax planning for 2011. If you have not been in to talk with us about tax planning this year and you feel that you should, please contact us at your earliest convenience so that we can schedule an appointment as early as possible.

All of us here at Tamiyasu, Smith, Horn and Braun would like to wish you a happy and joyous holiday season.
