The constant flow of changes continues again today. By now most people know who is or isn’t getting a stimulus check. If you’re not sure if you’re on the list you can read through my earlier post. If you’re getting one but don’t want it, maybe you should reconsider that. Either way there was a gr...

I’ve been telling people over and over again for years that filing an extension for your taxes is an extension of time to file, not an extension to pay.
