Steve, thanks for an excellent presentation tonight. You provided a substantial number of suggestions that our members can apply immediately. You had numerous questions because you focused on tax matters that many of us have to deal with. Your response to our member after the presentation was particularly good, because you explained the ramifications of her situation. May your business and you continue to prosper as you guide your clients through the stressful circumstances of tax compliance! – Jim Runzheimer, Program Chair 2017 – 2018, Arlington Great Southwest Rotary Club
