Christmas and the Trades
Here's a little e-book that we highlighted last December that may have a lesson for many
members of the trades.
The Plumber and the Wishing Well
A plumber doesn't have enough
money for his children's Christmas presents. His friend, Tupo, discovers a secret wishing well. The wishing well had broken down
so it can't grant them their Christmas wishes. Tupo tells them they need a plumber to repair it.
When the plumber arrives to do the
job, the little people offer to pay him lots of money
that he could use for his children's presents. He is
very good at fixing broken pipes and leaking taps but
can he repair a wishing well? If he can, everyone,
including his children, are going to get their Christmas
presents and have their best Christmas ever.
To reinforce the premise of
the book, we found the book
listed on one site for a 50% discount.
End Business Tax Tips

contributions to your retirement plan. If you
don't have one, set one up and fund it. This will
not only provide for your future, but could reduce your
tax bill for the year.
Buy It Now: If you need a
new piece of equipment or new Price Books, get them now.
As a business expense, they can reduce your tax bill,
and you get the added
benefit of working more
Donate Now: If your
business is not a C corporation, any donations you make
now will probably reduce this year's tax bill.
Get a Refund: There is a
one time chance to get the IRS to give back to you.
For this year only, you can apply for a refund of some
telephone taxes you paid between 2003 and this year.
The IRS has a
form (don't they always) that will allow you to
determine the amount without digging out your old
