Florida Unemployment Tax Insanity (2)

Florida Unemployment Tax Insanity (2)

The part of this Florida Unemployment Tax Insanity letter, to Florida Governor Crist, which I can print, are four pages with narrow margins. The total Florida Unemployment Tax Insanity package, to our Department of Revenue, was about 50 pages. So if you want a Tax Cut CPA to appeal, repeal or litigate this Florida Unemployment Tax Insanity, or really fight these and other outrageous taxes for you, please let me know.

Speeding Up QuickBooks Performance

I was a Speeding Up QuickBooks Performance expert long before Intuit (and others) copied my Speeding Up QuickBooks and QuickBooks web pages to its QuickBooks Community Library. Even that was ages before my recent Intuit Ask the Expert appearance on QuickBooks Errors and Speeding Up QuickBooks Performance. Here is my latest effort, which will never be complete.

Microsoft Windows 7 Disaster, Return to XP Professional #2

previously wrote about a Microsoft Windows 7 Disaster, which will make me return to XP Professional. Yesterday I finally got a month-long delayed response.

Local systems also almost universally lack the virtual images that quickly reset programs, program preferences and data in THE SAFEST PLACE FOR DATA.
