Allyship Fundamentals - Mike Moskowitz

"Moskowitz welcome to judaism unbounded so great to have you. He's still for so. I'd love to start with a question that i'm sure you've been asked a million times. But basically how did an ultra orthodox rabbi come to be the scholar and residence for trans and queer studies at a progressive judaism synagogue that is actually the largest lgbt synagogue in the world. And i think what are the first so how did that happen. Rabbi hyman and i met in the back of a police wagon where we both got arrested for civil disobedience over daca. It was in dc about three and a half years ago and in the back of this police wagon. We are all in handcuffs. And there's five melded a vying folks on one side makita a metal partition in the middle of this police. Dan and then five defying rabat's on the other side and rabbi climate says you know bunch of to share toronto share and it's a captive audience role in hand and i just read an article in gender and clothing and so i share these thoughts with her and through the course of the afternoon where we were massive warehouse in also separated by gender. She a little bit of my story. How is a rabbi in harlem at columbia and was now working at a deli lakewood new jersey. I've taken off the day to get arrested. And she got together and created this position for me. Because i wasn't able to find a job in the radio world anymore because of the positions taken very publicly Those positions for me came about As it does most people as a function of proximity someone in my family transitions at a student. Congregation who had transitioned really wasn't kind of authority and also works representation within the rabbinate to create a sacred space for people to be who they are without having to choose between a gender identity and religious identity. In so i kind of started the occupying that space void and cdc showed up as as my ally to give me the platform in the agency to able to do that. It's been a fantastic relationship. That's i think has been surprisingly simple. It actually lacks the complexity of what i think. Most people would assume would be awkwardness of being in both of those spaces. Because i think.

"Jamie. Lynn spears the sister of brittany spears and the creepy combination of appearance. Name's jamie and lynne is blaming. Elon musk for murdering her cats calling. Tesla tesla cars a quote. Secret cat killer. That's like nightmare. It's still the former show two point. Oh star said in a since deleted instagram video. That our cats were run over by tesla. They never heard coming saying. Come on swear to god yet. And i pulled the video to play and then i said no because she sounded super filled out and her hair was dyed like bright purple as was her toddler. Daughter's hair dyed bright purple. Anyway she said. I'll do my best impressions because he was like eating a piece of candy. It was really weird. Assure those castanon commits suicide sounds great. Well i don't know broke is now lost like i don't even wanna tell you how many cats because they don't hear the tesla crank and unfortunate things happen and it's really devastating traffic for everyone involved. Eli moskowitz figure this out. You owe me a couple of cats. No she sounds like pam oliver. Yeah did you guys see that pam all over the weekend. I don't think it was. I don't think she was drunk. Because they kept bringing her back on. They wouldn't they wouldn't have done that. I think it was a medical. Yeah yeah that's bummer. I didn't see that but yeah you. You don't expect that from him oliver. You do expect that from kenner louisiana's biggest celebrities to spears's but yeah no i guess tesla's been taking her cats. Do come up with a great idea which is to have tesla mega high pitch noise. Only animals can hear when the car cranks on and as it turns out. Guys tesla and other electric cars are required to do this. As of september twenty twenty. Us national highway traffic safety administration now requires electric cars to admit a sound of at least forty three decibels when they're traveling at speeds of less than eighteen point six miles per hour winds busted alone mosca not being up to regulations. No she might. She might own an older test. Jamie would start by saying. I'm problems in the world right now. Ray yeah but you can afford a tesla and unfortunately test is coming. Get but like this is bullshit by the way because cats yes. They can't hear the car but they can hear the tire on the pavement. You can't quiet that away. No matter how quiet engine is is a fucking animal. The cat knows the car is coming. Capture very aware animals. Someone was on pills and hit the car. Hit the biggest fear. And that's why my cats don't don't go outside. Yes there's a car. Well it's one thing to have the cat like in the engine block which habits from time with him but like the cat would is not going to get run over. And here's rubber on pavement is to scare the cat i'm just yeah But no you would think yet so key electric cars. I guess they're supposed to make sound of like a dishwasher right forty three decibels jamie lynn. Later deleted the post walked back. Her claim saying that she did not run over any cats.

Can you tell me a little bit about your background? Were you born in Warsaw thank you for having me and the answer is no I was born. Hundreds kilometers from Warsaw, which made me very well linked to Warsaw and I had a lot of contacts which people from there at I graduated, I finished my by school in very very small town, Ostrich Moskowitz, and were you encouraged to write or indeed to cook at that time? That's all my mother was cooking really well. And when I was six or seven, I had that fashion to bake, and I was really it was a master of cheesecake, but then I never actually had any links to cooking until I graduated from Warsaw University, and then I went to Denmark and the full story seem the book, but shortly speaking. People in Denmark earned much better those days and people in Poland. And Poland was joining you those days, so I could easily meet right. I went to Denmark. And I spend a couple of months, and my first job was cleaning the dishes very good, fancy restaurant in very beautiful Barcus Copenhagen, but then I made a beautiful rape currier name became a chess, so that was the first serious cooking for me. But you ended up walking out of the restaurant, throwing your apron down and walking out. All Yeah Oh. Yeah, that's because I went to. I made a mistake actually. I'm joking, but I went to point just for a couple of weeks. I took a short break. The restaurant with my plan was to come back after a couple of weeks, but then in Warsaw I got the job actually I. It was an internship. But in the best newspaper, having all. So, that was something I couldn't really skip I never. I never went back to cooking. And in fact that was the start of your journalistic career. Because at twenty five, you became the youngest reporter at the Big Polish daily newspaper. Tell us about that. It'd be far.

The founder and CEO of beyond meet a disruptive and innovative plant based Meat Company and. I know you've seen her to them. Because they are ubiquitous. These days interview was recorded pre covert nineteen so while we don't specifically discuss it. This episode is very timely. Since as you've I'm sure read. One of the areas most affected by this horrific disease. Is Our food supply chain specifically the animal food supply chain. The conditions are deplorable for both the animals and humans at these meat processing plants and the health of both is compromised. Daily Ethan discusses in detail. I was company is improving the efficiency the safety the health and the environmental impact of his beyond meat. Production and the benefits are huge. We know that the average consumer even those who eat animal meat are aware and very concerned about these health and social issues. As Ethan says I believe there is a new dawn for American agriculture. And this conversation is our awakening our in fact just last week. Jim Cramer the host of mad money on. Cnbc said that beyond meat is a small company but so Amazon so was facebook and so was Google and then he goes on to say and I quote. It's all going beyond meets way and what is beyond me doing. They're cutting prices. I think the pandemic is saying start eating plant based Kramer continues to go on to say that the rising demand for plant based protein will not be a passing fad and that. There's no hobby here. The Hobby is going to end up being meet man. Jim You are talking our language. I think the pandemic is saying start eating plant based eating meats going to become a hobby love it? Here's to having the heart of a hero and not being afraid to challenge the status quo in fact instead of being divisive it's time we collectively come together and work to solve these problems on behalf of the animals the longevity of our planet and our own health it is my mission and it's the mission and driving force for my friend. Ethan Brown all right here. We are season two of the the plant. Strong podcast I am here with Ethan Brown. The CEO of beyond me. And I want you to know and I'm at World Headquarters for beyond me. Where exactly are we? So we're going to California el Segundo AB- like what two miles from the airport? Exactly yeah I mean it was the most. This is the easiest drive ever made from the airport and season to just so you know the whole theme is heart of a hero and we're really trying to identify People that are changing the game and and that's who were having an inviting on season two of the Pike Aston. You probably more than just about anybody. I know are changing the game in a multitude of ways and I and I wanna get into that so you are truly a game changer. Speaking of the game game changers. Have you seen the movie I have in before I even get into that? I mean I just WanNa share on August the impact you and your family out on my own life and just how much a fan of yours and incredibly sincere. I've watched forks over knives yet more times than I can count Shared it with more people than I can count And you don't want. We got a chance to connect few years back. It was a terrific thing for me. No I've been a big fan of yours for a long time to be here being everybody. You surreal well. I I'm flattered. Thank you and so in the game changers. You saw it. Did you like it. I love that movie. Yes in fact. You're so intimately viable that but I'm having to stop myself showing you a clip. Because it's almost every time someone comes to my office injured in this subject. But of course that would be lost on you because you set the record for most I think most downloaded most downloads of a documentary ever and they broke it in a little over a week. It's remarkable and it resonates so strongly with me for so many of the reasons that it also resonates with you of course But even as somebody's building business it was really important for me to see this You know growing up we were very much exposed to the got milk campaign. I mean that was something that was a big part of culture and and maybe less so today but you know the use of athletes to promote a particular type of animal-based protein with something the California Milk Board. Did you know very well And and that was something that because of my own background and interest in the milk industry. My family was doing I paid a lot of to the got milk campaign with came time for me to start my own company I. She hired the original sponsor of that campaign. I'm Jeff Manning on the California Milk Board. He had left since you grew up on a dairy farm. I grew up in the city. Okay on my dad's a professor and we He he didn't like being in the city and so he wanted to have a place to recreate because he grew up in the country and so got a farm Very early on in my childhood and he's kind of entrepreneurial so ultimately we get wholesale cattle there Dairy but but he rate so To went back and found the person who who wrote the original mandate for the got milk campaign of someone named Jeff Manning on the California Milk Board and that led to that campaign with milk mustache. And you know Bo Jackson Derek. Jeter et CETERA. And so I asked him to come work with me so we were together for a number of years creating the future protein campaign that we have here on the go beyond campaign and it's been been remarkable woman named Beth. Moskowitz has brought in more athletes. I can count Really remarkable career having or you know deandre Jordan Deandre Hopkins Chris Paul. They are now getting behind the idea. That a plant based Diet is the best performance and so game changers just nails that yeah and and there's a scene in there with the Tennessee. Titans football players and chastity. Morgan yes is cooking. I think some burgers on a grill. Those beyond Meat Burger. Yes we love the the Morgan's and all they're doing and I think that's just a great story and you're seeing that Clifford throughout the NFL particularly NBA. Where lightness quickness is so important you seeing so many. Nba Athletes turn to a plant based Diet for no other reason improve the performance. They also love the social aspect of it. They love the disruptive Challenger. Let's let's not do things the way we used to do. Let's bring something forward in this. World is a little better for for their kids. The challenge the status quo.

Bridging Ethereum Wallets with Pedro Gomes

"Pedro could you do us a favor and give us an introduction on who you are where your minds at and how you ended up in the CRYPTO space today cope. Thanks for having me on the show guys. Of course so I. I started an e commerce as a developer building online shops in one of the things. That always really intrigued me. Was the payment systems like paypal striper like Mike Prussia's in terms of tech and then eventually moved into Fintech and I started working smart banking so I was always kind of leaning towards like personal. Finance user experience spoke after a few months working smart banking. You get a good grasp of the traditional finance regulations and everything and that's where I got really bored and tired of like developing features and not having to comply with regulators and features getting toned or cancelled. And that's where I got into tier when I saw smart contracts. I heard about this before but it was just a internet money but cerium really brought me into the building. A smart contract imprecations on chain. That's where I fought. This is where finance is really going to go. And it's going to move away from all the traditional finance and regulations and everything people will be really in charge of their personal finance. And that's the part that I was mostly involved was developing bang. Interfaces so wallets felt like the really next step and one of the companies that I worked I balanced and balanced was developing Interfaces for not only managing portfolios but also developing a wallets. But at the time there weren't many good solutions for building wallets We actually played around. With a semi custodial solution but then we really didn't want to dive into the the the idea of having to manage keys for the user. There was a lot of risk involved in that so we kind of just. We started brainstorming. About like how could we improve the user experience? The first APP was bounced manager where we developed Lake. Immanent away to just manage your tokens and indices very nicely so you could just like law again and have met a mosque never thing but a lot of the experience was kinda conditioned by the waltz like it was always around we can do as much as many. Moskowitz allow us and we really were man. We really wish we could just like control the wallet side. We should build a mobile. And then that's that's where the the direction kinda headed. The problem was a mobile wallets and our interface weren't really playing together because the beauty of the interface was having the full desktop screened manage. Your portfolio Tokens San Receive Exchange. But how could we then integrate with our mobile wallet which would store the private keys and we can actually provide a better experience for signing transactions messages. And that's where Walt can came in and well it connect. Kinda was inspired by. What's up? I remember once more of a desktop user so I had once web and you can just Kinda cure code and it just does this handshake between the device. And from that point. You literally just use your desktop. Yep that's volley go a little bit into you. Know more on the tactful while it connected. Let's let's sort of backpedal a bit more than just sort of diving more about who? You are So like that being said like you came into space. You had like you know your own like idealistic view on openness and Permission List like being able to build an innovate on top of these financial tools. That you really wanted to do so. You saw an opportunity in niche break into the space like that being said. So where did you find your earliest connections into the community before you started working on balance? And all that stuff. How did you sort of make that segue into traditional finance? Here's this thing. Daring of cool smart contracts liberty. Let me do my part to help here as I should be funny story actually so I I was. I was just doing my day job. The Smart Bang and I would spend most of my time just talking to my peers about look at this thing that the gym can do. Look at this thing that Jim could do and they would always joke about every day. I would have some fun. Facts about the tearoom some cool project that I've found and I would just like spend more and more time even during my job like looking to term style and one of the things that I did most was joining twitter and start tweeting about determine stuff and I. I remember applying like on a few jobs. I remember I played for Aragon and other jobs with at the time it had like no experience watching. It was definitely no go but On twitter through the M Richard Burton from balanced reach. That's how he space. I just got at the end and he was like you seem like a pretty solid developer and year actually know about to tear him so we should talk and then we just met up and he was in London at the time. That's where I was working for and then we went to an ATM. Meet up at the time which was so small like at the time. It looked great but that I think about it. There was like twenty people and it was awesome. It was like the first cross about how people were talking about tokens and creating different interfaces and everything and at that moment I was hooked. Not There I was just okay. I gotTA leave this traditional financing and that's when I joined balance around August two thousand seventeen so Early eat area Morella. I'm sorry go ahead after me major but just curious early term that Oliver I mean were you in early. Two thousand two thousand seventeen doesn't seem early compared to a lot of folks in the space. Well it all depends on where. You're looking at the charts. Basically I think asking is like were you early insurance financially which led to your further because expansion on your motives or was it just like pure curiosity well. I. I didn't even unencrypted time. I was really I was really just. I remember every time I told even on my regular job I would talk to my peers and there were like. Oh but bitcoin is going this and this and this and I'm like you're missing the point. I was completely baffled by how they were looking at. The prices and I was just like look at this tech and everything and I remember looking documentation and it was only around that year in December. Though is like wow. I'm kind of missing this whole run like I should buy some meat though is like really caught up by technology. I think I missed out a lot of the financial gain space. Its Own. It's important now. I'm like full on the and I own more cryptic than feed. Yeah it's that's a fun game to play. It is hard to manage. Sometimes it's fun so my question is You said you were traditional finance and a lot of features in at County Rail. A lot of plans that got thrown in the trash can things that you just couldn't do because of compliance or otherwise. So how old one of the things that you couldn't do that you can't and you're Bernie crypto well. There's a lot of clever ways that he can play around with like for example the same way we have compound than everything we had like these cold goals which were like these kind of buckets of money that he could put aside in everything. But there's only so much we could do so what we ended up just doing was just splitting into different accounts so the person could just like put money aside for a trip or put money aside for a lot of the wanted to buy so it was. Kinda like just containerized. Their money into different buckets. But we couldn't do much like there was so much we can do like. That could go into savings that there were so many financial instruments that we could build for their own financial empowerment that warm compliance because there were so many regulation issues with us putting some interesting to like those buckets for example and Yeah so it's Kinda like you. You wanted to be able to automate people's financial lives in a way that benefited but because the regulations probably let's just get down to the brass tacks. Everybody's gotTa make some money on the processes you couldn't do it. Yeah there there's a there's a very big barrier to new

COVID-19: Dealing With Social Distancing

"At this point in the ongoing cove in nineteen situation. Most of us have been asked to practice social distancing that is stay the hell away from each other and it's stressful. So I called Judy Moskowitz in Chicago. She's a professor of medical social skills at northwestern university studies the psychological and physical effects of employing techniques to increase positive emotions. Especially when you're under stress. We have been told to try to practice. Social distancing but social distancing can be very challenging. So you have some insights into how to weather that particular aspect of the storm. Yeah that's right so it's interesting because humans have evolved to come together and to support each other in times of societal crisis. So the social distancing is actually the exact opposite of what we are inclined to do mumber feeling stress. So you know it's it's really normal. That were feeling stress to bow the global pandemic up but in addition this having to to distance ourselves from other humans is An additional stressor until it really helps to just acknowledge the fact that it's stressful. That's right yeah so that's sort of the first piece here is is acknowledged that it's stressful. No that feelings of sadness or anxiety or fear even depression are totally normal and don't don't beat yourself up for feeling bad the there's no doubt this a stressful and so what what are some of the very practical steps we can take to alleviate as much of that stress as possible and to try to normalize our existences during this period right so the first thing is to try to foster a sense of connection even if you can't be physically in the same space with someone so if you can facetime with someone or use some other type of web conferencing to actually see someone face to face that can be really helpful just talked to someone on the telephone just hearing someone's voice versus just interacting with them over text message can make a difference and really helps us feel more connected than chatting over text message or dam So I think the first thing is really you know you can be creative about reaching out with people have have a virtual book club with all with your with Your Book Club Group or you know? Share a dinner where you're eating the same thing but Share it virtually there. You know there are lots of ways to sort of keep that that sense of social connection alive right. I mean with our technology we really can Have sort of a virtual dinner party even where you'd be sitting around with a bunch of Smartphones but looking at each other sort of federate. Yeah exactly and You you have actual data. I mean this is not just feel good kind of notions you have. You've been studying this kind of for lack of a better term. You know positive thinking and positive affect I think is the technical term. Yeah that's right so we we have our research program. Is this set of skills that we've put together that can help. People have more positive emotion in their daily

"moskowitz" Discussed on What Book Hooked You?

"It's sort of more separate from me because I meet new characters and plots and I get obsessed with those and I forget the details of the old ones. It's like friends you haven't seen in a while. They sort of fade out but to keep fond memories of them I don't know that I cringe because I think I had to decide not to cringe at some point. You know because this is something that people ask me a lot. When I was young in the books folks were coming out? They said let's using to. You're going to be embarrassed later on. Oh probably so. It's Kinda Mike so I have a lot of tattoos and people are like what are they gonNA look like when you're old and I'm like probably ugly like the rest of me. I'm going to be really old so I think no matter when you start writing. You're always gonNA have older books so let's tap and have mind from when I was younger I've talked to so many authors and I you know being an education I deal with all the kids that had these dreams of becoming a writer and and you know and working towards that because it happened to you at such a young age was that benefit or was it hard that you got you know success that early that you may be assumed that it was always going to be that easy that makes any sense. Yeah it does I do think it was. It's easier to get published In two thousand nine regardless of old you're the market wasn't as saturated then People are more likely to give mid list advances where now what seems to be more huge amount or nothing and it used to be more in between I definitely have struggled more than I expected. I had several books in a row not sell. I had several years ears. Were nobody came out. And it wasn't for lack of trying I think I think it was a benefit because it it Alaba save up some money when I was young which was great It got me acquainted with publishing and how that works before I needed to support myself with it And it. It gave me some time to be a fulltime writer before I had to transition into not being a full timer which was a nice experience to have It wasn't sustainable stable. But for a few years after I was out of college I got to just right and that was nice and a lot of people never got that so even though it was temporary it was cool and as you moved moved on with your career. You've also seen Why grow as as a category? So what has happened like what has been from where you started from you know even if we go back to age twelve Visiting your sister in the library too when you're first published to just how why has has exploded does feel you've sort of had a front seat for it or at least how's it been the sort of be inside as this has all been happening. I think it's more of like a clinging to the back bumper seats feeling Why is incredible when it comes to progressiveness diversity why he does everything? I so voices like mine are becoming less and less relevant and of course that's a good thing on a macro level it kinda sucks on a personal level because I am me but There are plenty of white women in publishing and we've been talking for a very long time so the fact that my voice is becoming less important is good good on a on a grand scale. So I've gotten to watch diversity really come alive Ave just released the annual publishing survey which said right. I think eighty six percent of publishing professionals are white. which is of course Rendez? And I've gotten to watch way. I mean we still have a long way to go but we invite invite authors of Color on in their books. I think at a much better rate. I don't have numbers on me than other. Categories are and. That's one reason too that I like to write about stuff like Jewish kids and sick kids. Because I'm like these are topics that are mine and topics that are still under-represented. It and I can bring so rather than writing when I was started out. I was just writing about like Christian ish straight white kids so now. I'm Mike Okay. I'm a gay sick Jewish author. Why why am I not using those experiences and bringing those two guys sick Jewish teenagers? So that's more of my goal. Now is to really harness the parts of myself that I think have been underrepresented and bring those for it. Because that's what I can offer but why I mean now with Netflix and everything. We're getting a bunch of movies And we're really seeing the public become more aware of why as a Jonah and it's been scary carrion exciting sure and beyond the your goals for the topics of stories that you WanNa tell you know you've obviously league renoir. You've middle grade books you've collaborated. What other kind of ideas or our our ambitions do you have for? Maybe the genres different categories are different styles. Are you know however far you WanNa take that when it comes to your storytelling I would love to do something with TV and movies. I wrote a screenplay of sick kids just as an exercise and a screenplay of one of my other books as well and it was really fun to do. Oh and I really liked it and I would love to see in the movies whether or not I wrote the screenplays But I I also love theater so anything with writing plays I think it would be great. Sometime I do think. Someday I'll venture into adult books. I feel like the protagonist of a lot of adult books are still quite a bit older than I am. Twenty eight and I feel like a lot of adult books are still about like I discovered my husband's cheating on me and my daughter is in college and I'm like I'm not there yet. So I think navy went on like forties fifties. Alright until book when I I I feel like I understand what being an adult. It's like because now I'm just like a ugly teenager so I'm Hopeful about these for that. I don't know that I'm gonNA write more Middle Great. I might if I get a good idea I don't see myself writing chapter of picture books but you never know But I do expect that. I'll I'll stay in why a As publishing changes I have self published a few books and I did really enjoy that process so I think there's a good chance that if I'm at a place where I'm not worried about getting money from publishing that I might transition into just publishing in order to have that control over what I'm doing win and to not have to answer to people and to get a more Hands on view of what. My sales are looking like what my readers liked. Because now there's filter and I would like that for the future but right now. It's not the smartest idea so wait. Yeah great well. Let's wind down as we do. Ask you a few questions the first one being. What is your favorite movie? That's based on a book. I have so many but my I very favorite is fantastic. Mr Fox okay. Which is my second favorite movie of all time It has absolutely nothing to do with the book whatsoever. So saying it's based on a book. It's pretty much a stretch but I asked. I did love the book when I was Little Rhode Doll I mean Anti Semitism side where it's good shit so I Fantastic fantastic. Mr Fox was actually one of my favorites growing up so I was so excited when the movie came out and oh I love it so much I watch it every report. Because they're hungry and I'm hungry so it's one of my favorite's next question then is Is there a book or a series. You're willing to admit you've either never read or never finished. I have never for even started either. Twilight Hunger Games which is weird for Y author. I know nothing against them. Just never did I. I saw the first hunger games movie and I enjoyed it But I never thought near the twilight movies either so I just missed that completely and then finally what. What is the last Great Book that you've read flats great one? I'm going to say it was neanderthal. Opens the door to the universe by Preston. Norton it's uh-huh really. It's it's kind of the way that I was talking about boyfriends. It's very satisfying The dialogue is incredible and The characterization is great. There's this one little scene where the two main guys or sooner on the walking dead and one of them's like it's just too too dark for me and the other one's like I know. Can we have an episode. They just like sit around and enjoy a meal or something like I loved that like when I was reading it I was taking all these pictures on my my phone and like tweeting out little quotes from it. Because I thought it was so charming. And it's by a debut author so it's always really fun to to find something new from a new author so yes neanderthal. Open the door to the Universe Press Norton. Good Buck Great. Well Hannah your newest book. Sick kids in love is out now. And congratulations on this one. We can't wait to see what else you have for us. Thank you so much. And that's all for this episode on thank Hannah Moskowitz for joining to me again. Her latest book sick kids in love is out now.

Dot Com Slash Tech Talk Ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire everyone. You're listening to talking tech today. We're talking about streaming TV services. There's so many of them and so many of us are grappling with what to do. I've gotten a call carol hair. She's editor in chief the USA she was visiting the Elliott Bureau in you know me. GonNa put somebody in the hot seat to join me as a sparring partner. Hi Nicole Hi Jefferson then we were talking about so many services Netflix Hulu. CBS All access Amazon prime and that's what you're already subscribing to now we got Disney plus Apple TV plus. There's ESPN plus. There's so many in many families do not know what to do. You know I agree. I have three Rica's and has been we'll have different interests so we've acquired these streaming services. My husband was big on game of thrones which got us. Hbo My son discovered eleven twenty to sixty three on Hulu which got us to Hulu Amazon prime comes with our prime but I enjoy to catch up on Downton Abbey in advance of the the a new movie coming out and obviously met flex is what's on tonight but I find that we're not using them as much as we probably should to get the value. We're really busy see family so when we do have time to watch something you know. We're generally going to a streaming service. We need something on demand. We don't you know we can't we can't schedule around regular programming grandma so I guess my question to you. A meth Rebecca you Jefferson is do you have recommendations for busy. Families like mine who maybe were oversubscribed at this point but we wanna be able to watch what we want to when we do have that valuable family time I think most people have these services and don't know why they don't open them up even yeah. I would say they take a list. Open it up. Start writing down what you actually want to watch and you're probably be surprised to find. It's not that much that it's easy enough to cancel Certainly you know you can always bring it back. You know what's on right now that you really want to see because I know that Netflix has so when he shows that I am just I don't know what to do. How about you. I think that's a good point again now. That game of thrones is over. I don't know that we need. HBO Even though I've just discovered succession Russian but I'm not sure I'd pay for just for a succession but I think that's a really good advice. If the show you you bought it for his over go ahead and counsel and if there's another one that comes along you can sign back up. I think everything about succession is come back in three months. Watch them all you don't have to wait every week yeah and you just saved thirty thirty forty-five sixty dollars. That's a great idea and again on Hulu. We had that one show and it's run its course. I also think he was watching Flash Gordon or one of those. You know teen game shows but once he's over with that you're right. We don't have to continue it. I know it sounds pretty obvious but sometimes we just let things go because that's human age. The problem with humans is that it takes. It's more work to actually go and disconnect you. Just leave it there and then sometimes you look at your credit card bill and say well. I spent one hundred and eighty dollars on Netflix this year. I didn't didn't need to do that. Did I right exactly and you know every penny counts and so I think that's really good advice to do an audit of your streaming services council the ones you're not using knowing that you can start them back up.

Dot Com Slash Tech Talk Ziprecruiter. The smartest way to hire consumer reports recently outlined wind what most of us already knew that the fees being charged by cable companies are one rate in the adds another on the final bill you know it's similar to many travel aval websites which advertise come on nightly roommate but then. Ding you later with hidden resort fees and taxes so when I wrote an article about it this week for USA Today Day I asked Jonathan Schwab as the senior policy counsel for consumer reports what we could do about those fees and he told me there was only one option cut the cord and the fees would go away. I have some words of advice as well. Check your cable bill right now because when I took a look doc my bill was a steady in reasonable one hundred eight dollars and ninety one cents monthly until this month when it jumped to da Da da a hundred hundred and fifty four dollars a whopping five hundred and fifty two dollar yearly increase frontier communications my Los Angeles provider jacked up the Combo Internet. TV Rate from seventy five to ninety stopped offering HBO for Free Which Ballooned Up to twenty dollars and threw in a nice broadcast TV of twelve bucks to watch local channels and taxes went up to really when I called frontier complain they pretty much refused to budge saying that I had a promo rate that no longer was valid so basically I two choices cancel service altogether and re sign up under my wife's name which would now oh get me to a promotional one hundred thirty dollars monthly for what we had or disconnect altogether so I picked up a fifty dollar. You're watching your Internet service rate from frontiers. La rival spectrum and I have a router arriving hopefully today fees spectrum itself is notorious for digging us with extras like the ten dollar self installation fee they are charging me to plug in a router and to call them confirm that I indeed have service. The alternative is fifty dollars to have a technician. Come to the house and do the work and for cable subscribers. It's good to know that they do that. Twelve dollar monthly broadcast as well and it's growing at thirteen dollars and fifty cents monthly later this month I signed up for the one year plan so hopefully I got fifty dollars a month for that one year. I'll also be adding youtube. TV The Cable Alternative Service to replace the cable channels this this is fifty dollars monthly which is pretty hefty but the wife will kill me if I can't get her news channels and PBS which is coming to YouTube td later this year so so in the end. I'm going to be paying one hundred dollars monthly instead of one hundred and eight dollars monthly which really isn't much of a savings at all but I'm not about to give frontier the satisfaction this faction of nearly six hundred dollars hard in dollars every year for no good reason read your cable bills everybody cutting the cord fans no. I could've skipped up YouTube TV or slaying or playstation Vue or who live TV and just bought an antenna the pickup local channels in really saved but if you're a fan of cable able channels like FX AMC HGTV CNN ESPN and on and on you got to pay the Piper with one of the cable TV alternative services I I could live without them and just watch regular Youtube Netflix Amazon and be the happiest guy in town but I live alone.

Our Company Has Problems

"Back. In two thousand fourteen I laid out the premise of what I was doing. I was trying to start a business while simultaneously telling the story of starting a business in a podcast and it was going to focus on all the little details onto what kinds of shoes I was. GonNa wear to my first ever investor meeting my wife. Nazanin House need didn't like the shoes I'd chosen. They're fine. They're just there'd be a higher chance that he's GonNa give you money if you're not wearing running shoes dining that's through these he's meal issues that I can wear that my feet don't hurt. I ended up wearing those durkee shoes to the pitch was not successful not surprisingly and I kept recording recorded difficult Goshi with my co-founder tense confrontations with my wife other pitches to investors. I thought I was making a six to eight episode mini series but it turned out. I was launching. I showed that would continue for many years and we document all kinds of milestones in the history of this new company that I was making for example recorded the moment I partnered partner with my co founder Matt so the final thing to discuss which we had put on the agenda for last time style up our conversation of where we see this relationship going yeah checking in on a recorded choosing a name for the company Gimblett what sure easy to spell like madmen sexy. I'm okay documented undocumented the moment my wife Nazanin in the beginning worked as a TV producer eventually joined me in Matt to help run GIMBLETT. We're going to work together. Look look at US going a New York living the dream. Yeah Okay it's S. and over time the PODCAST. I'd accidentally started did branched out into new territory. We hired a new host from Gimblett media startup. I'm Lisa Chow any big success requires looking failure in the and Lisa started following other founders launching their own companies to women who rushed a dating APP several friends from college who actually meaning to started the billion dollar streaming company company twitch and most recently she told the story of Eva Moskowitz the controversial founder of Success Academy one of the fastest growing education startups in the world and we continue to follow it what was going on here. Gimblett the growth of our company from our first few employees through our twentieth or fiftieth and eventually our hundredth we documented our attempts to increase diversity diversity to decrease burnout and manage the chaos that inevitably comes with running a fast growing startup and here. I am now five years after that. I started episode dropped to document a bold new chapter and give them a history spotify. I'm a big user. Dave big user no call we are as well this is footage from the CNBC program squawk on the street dip so that aired February sixth twenty one thousand nine hundred the host. Jim Cramer and David Faber are about to welcome guest to the program this morning and this is big special exclusive interview from quite excited about this spotify scope boundaries Daniel Daniel. I've got an issue right right up front broadcast. I understand they are red hot and what we want is agriculture. I didn't think that a music company would do it but I do think that an audio audio company would do it and that's what this is about as an yeah. It's it's really about expanding our mission from just being about music to being about all audio and being being the world's leading audio platform and the thing that they're talking about here. The reason Daniela showed up at squawk on the street to talk to Jim Cramer and David Faber is because of an announcement inch that had just come out that morning spotify was acquiring to podcast companies hundreds of millions of dollars podcasting technology company called anchor at podcasting content company based in Brooklyn called Gimblett in this season of start up the final season and we're going to wrap up the story that we started over five years ago and I can't imagine a better final chapter than the one. We're about to tell you for the next several episodes. We're GONNA share with you. What an acquisition looks like from the inside and the first season I learned that starting a company is a very emotional experience what I didn't know then is that selling one that's pretty emotional and just a quick warning here at the top there is some swearing in this episode through down the left hand side his revenue split out by show or property so that so just the B. B. Through this tape from a meeting in late March of two thousand eighteen almost a full year before spotify's announcement on NBC that they had acquired Gimblett back back during this meeting the idea that a year from now we'll be selling our company is really hard to imagine row forty. One is the prophet line. The voice you hear is Jim Grau our VP of finance he's walking a few of us on the company's leadership team me not seen and Matt through the numbers for the year and the numbers they're not great what burn rate projected burn rate for the air. Yes if you will to burn rate in other words how much more we spending than we were making alter now. Spending more than we made was always part of the plan. That's what most startups do early on and just nine months earlier. We had reached a big round of funding fifteen million dollars. The the plan was to invest a lot of that into making more shows hiring more people. We wanted that big chunk of money to last for a while two and a half years meaning. We wanted to burn about about six million a year but this meaning. Jim is telling us that right now and early two thousand eighteen. It's looking like we're going to burn a lot more than that. So something like probably ten million eleven million million. A month is probably a where we're headed towards. If we don't uh change some things in other words we keep going the way we're going by the end of the year almost that entire investment we just got James. We'll be gone and that's because a lot of the things we assumed would happen. Didn't we assumed audiences would grow but instead they plateaued are launches had not done as well as they had in the past and some of our biggest shows with the largest audiences still weren't making money because we couldn't sell ads on them shows like science versus. The last season was very sold out this. This season is not super sold so what's wins empty spots how threat in terms of how many sponsor consoled a what's the percentage. What's the what's the sell through rates over ten percent fifteen percent ten percents old. That's a little bit. That's counting the next season to probably like twenty twenty to twenty five percents old. Why is it that that it cabinet bed bad because if we can't make money on our biggest shows what does that mean for the rest of the company because the fact is Gimblett specialty specialty up until this point our business model basically had been to make kind of podcast costs a lot of money. I kinda requires big reporting trips large teams of four or five five producers and editors and engineers. The kind of show had a proven track record for example this American Life Cereal Radio Lab. They're all that kind of podcast and that Kinda show for the first couple couple of years Gimblett. It worked for us but at the time of this meeting for years into the company there was another kind of show that was getting more and more popular a kind of show that wasn't what we specialized. Stan shows like pod save America and my favorite murder the DAX shepard podcast these shows rely on a charismatic oast connecting with fans and they're much cheaper it to produce and the audiences for these shows are huge way bigger than the audience for any Gimblett podcast these shows we never mentioned them by name during this this meetings but they lurk behind everywhere the conversation because of what their success seems to suggest for US business that maybe we are spending a lot of money making in something that people don't want anymore to me in particular. That was a scary thought if if it ends up being that we can't make there's no business camel to support like good programming. That fucking sucks yeah. We're in this world that prioritizes like cheap you know cheap mass market and and like we definitely need to start doing that but I like that sucks having to make the different kinds of show that was scary to me that it wasn't as scary to Matt to Matt was scary was me and my resistance to change. It seemed to ignore the basic math that a show made by just a producer and a charismatic host. The comes out frequently finds a big audience that show will be more profitable than anything we were making right then. The thing that keeps me up at night is like we're super fucked if we don't have a much lower cost per episode model of production and right now. We don't have that we we don't know how to do it. There's a large chunk of organization has to reinvent the way it does what it does if we just continue on our current pace. I don't think there are things that are going to improve like I don't don't think all of a sudden audiences have just start growing and like we'll get better but we can make decisions to improve revenue. Yeah yeah absolutely yeah but I don't want Asli. This is a conversation about cost as well as you when when I listened back to this tape now all I hear is everything that is not being said the tension between me and Matt this just sitting beneath the surface tension over the fundamental question of what kinds of shows Gimblett should make and what kinds of shows we shouldn't. This new financial pressure was facing it put that tension front and center are started producers Chris. Mary Molly Mystic Interviewed Matin me separately about this time and how things felt between us. Tell me about your relationship with Alex last spring spring two thousand eighteen. Here's a low point. I guess the Metaphor I wanNA use as like a romantic relationship. Last last spring was the real time where it was like. We've been married for like seven years. We have kids we have a mortgage and and and we are fighting and I don't think we ever said the word divorce.

"There's a guy I work with we make the same and the other day. He tells me he's paying about twenty percent less taxes each year. And this has been going over years. I usually file my own, and he has a tax attorney. I'm thanking how much of I lost by doing it myself. You're listening to practical tax with text attorney Steve Moskowitz. There's a popular concept and social, scientists called economic loss. For example, if you sold the stock today and they said, oh, no, the value went up tomorrow, the money, you didn't make is considered an economic loss. The same applies to tax deductions that you fail to take. We call those missed opportunities. And joining me today is my longtime of over twenty years. Colleague friend, tax attorney, Liz, praying list. Thanks. There's we have thousands of examples of clients that have left money on the table and they come in, and you can usually pinpoint it right away and kinda give them a good road map, but. Just to talk about a couple of examples, this one's timely one is she came in for year end tax planning. She was a doctor. She is a doctor had a practice and continues to have a practice. She says she never wants to retire. She loves being a doctor and she has a has a side. She has a part of her practice. It has a product line and information services regarding those, those products. And we were able to save her over four hundred and twenty thousand dollars this year offer taxes, just based on some, some calculations it took some time to think them through. But, but really think through with this new tax law, and it was the end result was actually very simple for her to implement in what you do. Brilliantly. Would you took the new tax law, which you took the time and the attention to detail in the caring to take the clients facts and saying, if you have these fax under this new law, if you made this? Slight change you could get around this limitation, and save this four hundred and twenty thousand dollars, which, of course, is amazing. She's so happy makes it even more rewarding is how simple it is for her to to play. Those it was involved, just kind of spinning off part of the business, businesses and setting simple payroll for her and the benefits are untold. New law, where some very simple relatively minor changes can produce major changes in tax savings and something else that comes up all the time is when we interview, new clients, so often, they'll say to me. Oh, is that no? Now right now, we do have a new tax law in two thousand eighteen but there's still plenty of the old stuff, left and clients will say, is that noon will say, no that's been around for years. And we wind up filing a lot of amended returns, three years, federal for years, California to save money. And again, it's a combination of things, of course, knowing the law is so important, what you have to take the time and the attention to detail to find out, what is this client's case and without disrupting their business, what change could I make especially the ones that are small and easy. That would say this Klein, a lot of money or not presented recently, we had a client. We ended up doing some amended returns from that for them because they happen to be two lawyers one had been a partner in a firm and. With receiving K one even though she wasn't working, and what we did is we took a look at what she was really receiving. And if it was going to be subject to Feick attacks, so social security. So we took a look at that, that was kind of our intention that as we were going through an amending the tax returns, we realized, well, they forgot depreciation on one of their properties for two years. There is an AMT tax credit that they had forgotten. They came in with one thing. And they, they left having kind of a comprehensive tax returns it saved them they're getting big refunds. They had overpaid their tax. And one of the things I think we should note here. The client was an attorney, and she'd work for a law firm, and people here lawyer, oh, all lawyers know all about everything. And the answer is, we don't we tend to like doctors go into our areas and say, look, I want to concentrate in this area and learn as much as I can. But the other areas, I really don't know about these were fine lawyers, but they weren't tax lawyers and yet they made all these mistakes, and it wasn't just our client that made the mistakes. He was a law firm that she worked for we had to come in and say, no, no wait accountant and that happens. Wait, wait, wait, we can go ahead and make these changes and save you all that money. And he makes such a difference in people's lives, where when we look at the cases, it's we don't look at it. Oh, this is a case or a tax return. This is somebody's life. Someone has entrusted their life their business to us. And we take that very seriously. You take care of him her. And that's what we try to do. Here is take the not only the expertise, but the time and the effort in caring in thinking. So what, what could we do to give this person? Even more in.

"I see. But once they settle into their seats, the mood turn serious should start with, you know, hey Queant, trainer Albert Moskowitz is a former senior Justice department prosecutor, he poses? The big question many cops have about hate crime laws. Do we need them? What do you think? At first, nobody responds. Then one officer fidgeting with his pen says he supports the approach New Hampshire takes now no state hate crime, blah, but prosecutors can seek tougher sentencing when bias motivation Moskowitz pushes the officer to explain why should even be a factor. If there's no hate crime law. The somehow these crimes are more serious than they would otherwise be serious. I'll send more serious salt is the salt limit. How you look anybody's series. Yeah. So why would it be more serious? If the assault is substantially motivated by the person's race religion. It should be enhanced aspire as penalties. But sparse seriousness, I don't know that back and forth happens at nearly every stop of this traveling workshop. It's put on by two advocacy groups, the Matthew Shepard foundation and the lawyers committee for civil rights under law. The trainers know they're waiting into a long simmering debate over hate crime. Laws. There's one set of the population that looks at hate crimes and sees laws that were passed to protect certain people, and why were those certain people more special than somebody else. That's another trainer Cynthia deal. A former FBI special agent who was in charge of the bureau civil rights unit. She's now with the Matthew Shepard foundation. She's done this training all over the country and says the mood each time is set by the local chief here in Durham, both the local and campus. Police departments welcomed it as. Durham chief Dave Kerr's made clear to his officers. Those guardians of community, it's important for us to understand that a simple misdemeanor rock being thrown for window may be just that. But then, again, it may not be just that supporters have hate crime laws say the idea is to acknowledge the sweeping impact of targeting someone, simply for who they are the torching of a mosque is felt by the larger Muslim community, for example, just like the murder of a trans woman since a message to others who identify as LGBT strafford, county attorney, Thomas velocity who oversees durum surrounding area says he sees hate crime laws as restorative. There are some people who are being singled out in some instances hurt, and we need to do something about that. And we're sort of struggling with how do we respond to that? What do we do? And how do we do it? The trainers are careful about the framing stressing how it's just good police work to stay on top of hate incidents that might point to a trend or signal the formation of. Groups like the ones that wreaked havoc in Charlottesville Virginia, Cynthia Dido. Again, none of us want you to be the next Charlottesville, or the next Charleston or the next Pittsburgh. We don't want you to be that, but we don't know and you need to be prepared. Police in New Hampshire have already gotten a taste of how fast racist incidents can outpace their response in the fall of twenty seventeen a seven year old by racial boy was the victim of a racist attack on a school bus in a separate incident white teenagers allegedly put a rope around another by racial child's neck and pushed him off a picnic table. And the UNH campus was reeling after a complaint about the cultural appropriation of Cinco de mayo spiraled into weeks of racial unrest, that time was sad. But there were opportunities. That's university of New Hampshire. Police chief Paul dean, he says this training is one of many ways he's making good on a promise to students to learn from twenty seventeen and introduced change. Just. Because something has always been the way it is doesn't necessarily mean that's the right way. And we need to if off if I don't like the idea of somebody feeling uncomfortable in my community. It's hard to say whether the chiefs commitment has trickled down to the rank and file during the training few of the officers volunteered, their thoughts, they opened up a little more over lunch. Sitting around the table and the campus cafeteria, the officers used some of the language of crime. Skeptics, there's not an increase. It's just that there's more reporting now or the media quick to call something, a hate crime,.

"The brother has an accountant, and my boss, has text Turney. I just started a small realistic and I'm wondering, which one will I need? You're listening to practical tax with tax attorney Steve Moskowitz. There was a time when most people thought that all was needed for the taxes was in accountant. And that's how I started. My career out I was before. I was a tax attorney, but then things changed, and the IRS got more aggressive, and they started summonsing in accounts and say, would you clientele you and hand over the papers? And what did you tell him and with an attorney, we have attorney client privilege, and also there is a difference? That's why when I became a tax during I was already a CPA, but I want to be able to do more for the client like people to go into tax court for him or her and everything else. So to me, having achieved both licenses. There's a big difference between the tax attorney accountant for me. My personal experience was I had a certain range of service, as a CPA when became a tax attorney. That's so. Broadened. There was so much more. I could do for client. And that's the reason I went to law school to become a tax attorney, and be able to do so much more from my client, completely and over twenty years ago, I met my colleague, Liz Brenna tax attorney in Liz, what are your thoughts on this area? I think it's, it's really an interesting question, and I see the value in both the CPA and attacks attorney, I think for our client to provide really an interesting tension, that provides a great result for our clients. A CPA's hat one set of rules, very generally very conservative. The tax attorneys at maybe a little more persuasive, and maybe pushing boundaries or coming up with some ideas that perhaps a CPA doesn't take into account, and it really provides a great result for our clients, as for the attorney client privilege. I think we all know tax preparation tax preparation. But in a lot of our criminal cases, I certainly have a extension to a CPA to help us in. Separate the case. And, and that can only be done for an attorney through the customer would happens is sometimes we'll bring in people's post, for example, someone speaks another language, and that then a translator is an attorney. So what happens is the provision, where anybody the attorney hires to work under him or her has that privilege. So when I'm speaking to that client, in the other language in the client's telling me all his secrets the IRS can't go to the interprets mister interpreter. You're not an attorney what the clients say, no, he's under the privilege umbrella. And that's one of the ways you get around that. So that's why, for example, if an account is going to be employed. The client doesn't employees the account, the attorney employs the accounts, we have the attorney client privilege at the change, you know, how cannabis is evolved and the back, back in the day at the CPA is an and cease to have a real problem with their clients, because they didn't want to know certain things or certain business activities. But they had to be able to comply with their taxes. At least a lot of people did a lot of people didn't just bypass all taxes them. But a lot of. People were in the business of it and wanted to be able to buy houses and things like that. And so they would do is they would have their accountant, and then they would have their attorney and they will go to their attorney and get advice and how on how to handle the tax situations because that part was privileged when they're talking to their attorney not when they're talking to the account. So that's been interesting to change now that cannabis is a little more legal not, not federally, but. Are like that. A perfect phrasing, a little more legal. And, you know, there's a great controversy between so many of the states, and the federal government, obviously, we'd like to see the federal government move. So it's simple, and it's completely legal and that would also go ahead and take care of a lot of other problems, for example. There's a code section. I don't like it's internal revenue code section two eighty eight and if you happen. And, and this is so unfair, this would apply to a cocaine dealer or a cannabis dealer, where he or she is only entitled to deduct their cost of goods sold, not the operating expenses, Soviet via this situation, for example, you know, for me as a former CPA. I know what those are but basically cost a good sold is like the name says the expenses that are incurred making the product, unlike an operating expense for rent, so almost any business person can deduct the rent for their business, but cannabis owner can't so at some will do wait a minute there in multiple businesses. They're in the t shirt business, and they're in the cannabis business that with champ case. Right. And it's, it's just it is unfair. It's, it's kind of counterintuitive to have a, a business that's legal in the state, but they're essentially getting taxed on, you know, double tax because they don't get their business expense would happens is what people are trying to do is. We'll all right. You know, they're in multiple businesses. They sell cannabis, and they sell t shirts. So the portion of the store that is related to t shirt selling is deductible. And then we have of course, the argument of will wait a minute. How do you make the allocation? There's all kinds of things that come up, for example, you have somebody saying, well, the t shirt is fifty dollars in the cannabis is free. And the government says, we'll wait a minute. You are misstating, and there's another code section where if a person with multiple businesses, misstate something or allocates improperly, the iris can come back and reallocate and. Liz, maybe can tell some more about the champs case. Well, we're seeing a lot of tax audits. The champs case was kind of the first case it really came on the radar because the tax payer, one in a sense, and they were able to show that they were able to show, the allocation since then the number of audits of dispensaries and, and other cannabis related businesses have really skyrocketed. And that's kind of the that's it's been limited. Now, I think the most recent one was to harborside case we covered quite extensively on our blog, actually, which was interesting. Read. Reading about access times. Sometimes I'll say things, and people are thinking, I'm, I'm making a joke, for example, when people get married, I always say, we'll marriage is a great tax event and they laugh, but it really is. We're not writing for other tax attorneys and professors in most cases where we're trying to basically make you aware of something like if we were surgeons, we wouldn't tell you how to do the operation, but we would tell you this operation is available to alleviate the pain in a certain area of your body, so in tax, there's so much that's available. And in from practicing these thirty plus years, so often when I tell a client will you can do this, in this, they look at me in wonderment, and say, well, is that new, and it's non it's been around for a long time, where they this can't believe that they can do these things. So the more you become aware, the more you can save taxes. We'll help you along in that area. But you really wanted to have some awareness of this, because there's so many. Golden opportunities to save taxes. And of course, we're real excited about, you know, the new tax law in the one nine nine A and cost segregation analysis in pensions. But there's a lot of other things too, that can be individualized and really save people on money. The reason that I became a tax attorney was obviously, I wanted to do more than when I was a practicing CPA, and I did what there's a real difference, and you can benefit from that. And here we have the knowledge of both, and it really makes a difference, whether we're talking about talking to you, planning to any tax return or in tax court. When the judge asked a question that an attorney wouldn't understand any counting can pop up and say, yes, so we understand the forms as well as the theory bottom line is having a tax attorney offers. You attorney client privilege, which is a huge benefit and often very needed, and then this day and age what you're telling people can really be held against you.

"Lot of people say, but I only have an accountant, but I want a second opinion. There can be a huge difference between an accountant and attorney I started my career as a practicing CPA. And the sole reason I went to law school was become a tax attorney because I knew as a practicing CPA. There was so many things that I couldn't do for client. And I wanted to be able to do more things for him. Do it all including representation and task court and many other things not to mention the privileges. That only in attorney has I'm talking about attorney client privilege where if you come in. And you tell me your secrets by law. It remains a secret. If you tell them to anybody else say a CPA, the IRS can get that information from the CPA APA testify against you Steve privileges in. Factor. But I also I really enjoy as a practitioner, I'm now, I'm not a CPA. I love CPA's. I love our CPA's. I love other CPA's I need them. Right. Because it provides such a great tension between practice of tax off, the CPA tax preparation tax positions. And I think really ultimately it gets the best result for the client. Having this debate going back and forth whittling down issued and finding out what your clients risk position really is. And how they wanna proceed I think everybody should have both. It's worth fortunate. We have both here. I have a lawyer client that had CPI that was doing the returns, and they were getting K ones based on a they're retired partnership retirement agreement, and you know, the question arose, and maybe because they were lawyers. You know, they were a little bit more into the definitions of the law, and what might be what should be self employment tax, and what should not be or subject vica, and ultimately were able to advise them that maybe this shouldn't be subject vica based on their review of their at their review their documents, and what top end, and they're working positions and or non-working positions. So that was interesting. It saved them a lot of money and just going through the returns, we just happened to find a couple minor things. I can AMT credit or some depreciation that been missed, but I thought that was kind of a routine second review, I think that's interesting for clients that might be considering big tax positions. And what that really means to their find out books and their business operations and going through that. So if they're going to invest in pension invest in some. An insurance physician or something like that which is certainly provided within the tax code. What does that mean to their ongoing business? What does that mean to documentation ongoing tax transactions things like that? Those opinions or so important, for example as mentioned pensions. Most people are familiar with the common pensions, they get in the Bank. But there's many different types of pensions. If you're otherwise qualify, you can have multiple pensions. And there are a lot of pensions at business people can have where they individually can deduct hundreds of thousands of dollars or more every year for themselves and also with pensions, there's even a cashflow benefit. It's the only deduction where most things you have to go ahead and spend the money by twelve thirty one year one with pension. You have up to the time of filing the return plus extension in year two so essentially three-quarters away into year two you put some money in pension, you deduct in your one, it's fantastic. And they have a lot of other benefits to whether or not you have an accountant, I take a collaborative approach, especially when I know they that Allah g and I feel that they're the competency is there and that there's no breach of my ethics to continue the relationship either with accountant or to the client to. Provide this kind of global comprehensive service. I also think it's important when there's a new business or a partnership, for instance, you count might not be up with do we need to modify the partnership agreement, you know, to keep up with the laws. Do we need to do that? These are the little things that we can add when it comes to developing the pension strategy developing the business strategy in terms of what's going to be compliant with the on.

And I wanted to be able to do more things for him. Do it all including representation and task court and many other things not to mention the privileges. That only in attorney has I'm talking about attorney client privilege where if you come in. And you tell me your secrets by law. It remains a secret. If you tell them to anybody else say a CPA, the IRS can get that information from the CPA APA testify against you Steve privileges in. Factor. But I also I really enjoy as a practitioner, I'm now, I'm not a CPA. I love CPA's. I love our CPA's. I love other CPA's I need them. Right. Because it provides such a great tension between practice of tax off, the CPA tax preparation tax positions. And I think really ultimately it gets the best result for the client. Having this debate going back and forth whittling down issued and finding out what your clients risk position really is. And how they wanna proceed I think everybody should have both. It's worth fortunate. We have both here. I have a lawyer client that had CPI that was doing the returns, and they were getting K ones based on a they're retired partnership retirement agreement, and you know, the question arose, and maybe because they were lawyers. You know, they were a little bit more into the definitions of the law, and what might be what should be self employment tax, and what should not be or subject vica, and ultimately were able to advise them that maybe this shouldn't be subject vica based on their review of their at their review their documents, and what top end, and they're working positions and or non-working positions. So that was interesting. It saved them a lot of money and just going through the returns, we just happened to find a couple minor things. I can AMT credit or some depreciation that been missed, but I thought that was kind of a routine second review, I think that's interesting for clients that might be considering big tax positions. And what that really means to their find out books and their business operations and going through that. So if they're going to invest in pension invest in some. An insurance physician or something like that which is certainly provided within the tax code. What does that mean to their ongoing business? What does that mean to documentation ongoing tax transactions things like that? Those opinions or so important, for example as mentioned pensions. Most people are familiar with the common pensions, they get in the Bank. But there's many different types of pensions. If you're otherwise qualify, you can have multiple pensions. And there are a lot of pensions at business people can have where they individually can deduct hundreds of thousands of dollars or more every year for themselves and also with pensions, there's even a cashflow benefit. It's the only deduction where most things you have to go ahead and spend the money by twelve thirty one year one with pension. You have up to the time of filing the return plus extension in year two so essentially three-quarters away into year two you put some money in pension, you deduct in your one, it's fantastic. And they have a lot of other benefits to whether or not you have an accountant, I take a collaborative approach, especially when I know they that Allah g and I feel that they're the competency is there and that there's no breach of my ethics to continue the relationship either with accountant or to the client to. Provide this kind of global comprehensive service. I also think it's important when there's a new business or a partnership, for instance, you count might not be up with do we need to modify the partnership agreement, you know, to keep up with the laws. Do we need to do that? These are the little things that we can add when it comes to developing the pension strategy developing the business strategy in terms of what's going to be compliant with the on.

"Every year about this time. I say it's going to be different gonna be prepared. I'm going to be ready. You're listening to practical tax with tax attorney, Steve Moskowitz. Hi, I'm tax Steve Moskowitz with longtime Moskowitz tax attorney, Liz sprain. And if you didn't take the benefits of twenty eighteen tax planning, and your punishment was a nasty Bill that maybe you could have avoided in two thousand nineteen don't hang your head in shame or sorrel talk to us. Let's see what we can do I to deal with those taxes on the new law that you can't pay. And Secondly to see about changing that for next year with what we can do about it. There's so much in tackling especially with the new law. If you're in business, we want to talk to you about both taking care of the taxes that maybe you campaign now and trying to avoid them in the future. And even if you can pay the richest person on the planet wouldn't pay a penny more in taxes than he or she had to which we now because. The wealthy. People employ lots of people to help them minimize or eliminate their taxes. Look the fortune five hundred that some of the make billions and pay zero in taxes. I think what we're seeing is that people are released apprised hottest new tax reform really affects them for the for the next five years are winners and losers. And there's a lot of losers here in California on sadly. But they're saying that can be done, especially if you're self employed, if you're not self employed, I will walk you through and coach she wept. The best I can it's just there's not a ton out there that you can do other than maximize your retirement accounts, and maybe do some family planning. I'm starting to see the results come in. And I was even surprised with my own tax Bill, right? Talk about the the cobbler's children. Right. So I was surprised to see how it affected me. Because I I'm kind of relatively benign there's a lot of options for people. And so I would like to give you an example of somebody that did take advantage of tax planning. But it is one of those things that has it's it's very. Proactiv. It doesn't it seems like it's might not be worth it at the time. Because you don't really know how it's gonna fact you, but one particular person that I'm just thinking off the top of my head. You know, we were able to save our about four hundred thousand dollars with some very simple business planning and entity formation and designations that really worked for her. It's not costing her a lot on a monthly basis. You know, a little bookkeeping we did advise odd get got happening a couple year Levi's in terms of entities, but the overall taxis savings it's something like over three hundred and eighty five thousand dollars along with being good economic reasons along with being good business. Practice is helps with the taxes, but helps in other aspects of the business to share elps organizing she she probably has the ability now to be more price point specific on her sales on certain items and things like that. So I think overall it's breaking out. She's very Abby would because she was proactive a lot of people chose not to do that. Despite Steve's talk. Talking about it all over anywhere. We can. And it was exciting. I mean, I think every talk nerd out. There is really kind of excited to see how the law comes into play now and how it's actually affecting people, and what people can do if you can't. If you didn't. It's still really early April. It's April twenty nineteen Finnigan a Bill in April fifteenth, or so you're surprised there's a way to deal with it. It's just going to be a blip, and we can do some planning, and you have plenty of time to get it done. Take. A look see what your options are in. We can do it for you. You don't have to talk to the IRS deal with them having to do with them. We are you know, whoever your trust. But just reach out. There's a lot of options out there. And there's really no reason to that. You should be stuck with the Bill an unanticipated Ville, I think it was really kind of unfair the way this law actually went into effect. Even though the service try to give notice and did try to advise people that they're going to need to know how this is going to affect them. I think it kind of fell on deaf ears. And I think business owners are tired of paying taxes and tired of these bills that just kind of every gross receipts tax local payroll, tax, whatever it is they just kind of added up, and it's it's just another cost of doing business. But and this was one if you're twenty eighteen taxes were unhappy surprise for you. Then one of the things you might want to consider is getting together with us for twenty nine thousand nine hundred tax planning, and let's do something to reduce those taxes if otherwise qualify, and what I've discovered over the years when people come in for their tax planning oftentimes that helps them with business planning business operations, and they make more profit because they have information now, they know how to control things they can see things so differently. It there's a lot of business people. They work really hard and bookkeeping kind of gets pushed to the background, and they're leaving a lot of profit on the table for things. They don't realize with the tax planning. There's a really. Side benefit where oftentimes the clients have an opportunity to make a lot more in profits.

"moskowitz" Discussed on Practical Tax with Steve Moskowitz

"My my husband, and I have a small business and two thousand eighteen was our very best year. My husband does our books and our taxes. And he's a really smart, man. Still I wonder if off our deductions pass the scrutiny IRS on it. That's what I think about in the middle of the night. You're listening to practical tax with tax attorney, Steve Moskowitz. Hi, I'm tax attorney Steve Moskowitz with longtime Moskowitz tax attorney lives sprain. And I get asked the question what can be legally deducted in a twenty eighteen taxes. My new favorite section internal revenue code is section one ninety nine a if you qualify you get to pay tax on only eighty percent of your prophet instead of one hundred percent, but there's limitations, but there's a way around the limitations. So what we need to do is. I see what you've done and how can we maximize this? And there's decisions to be made. For example, real estate is a real estate operation entitled to this or not. Not the answer. Yes. If it's a business. No. It's an investment. What's the difference between a real estate business and a real estate investment? There's a laundry list of things that we would go over for you. And another thing is a lot of people say, well, you know, what I meant to do tax planning in two thousand eighteen but here it is twenty nineteen and I'm just too late for that. And a lot of things that's true. But not with certain pensions. There are certain pensions that you can open up in twenty nineteen and still deduct them for twenty eighteen which is a very nice deduction. And there's a lot of other things to basically what happens is when you come in with a tax attorney. You're not cookie cutter we talked to you and say, what are you doing? We find out about your life. And then there's a lot of things we take a look at for example, suppose someone has their own business. Do their kids help them in business. If the answer is yes, you know, the parent can deduct the fair market value of the services, actually, performed by the kids, so many people. Overlook that? So the bottom line is we don't just say give me your papers. We talked to you I and and we we learn about your life your business. And then we said, well, you know, since you doing that, you might want to consider this and this and we start off with talking. And then we do the number garnering. And I think here in California, I think taxpayers are going to be or do for a wakeup call. If you're an employee making over X amount, you probably didn't have enough withholdings with how for twenty eighteen you're probably going to have a tax Bill. There's payment plans things like that. You can do and pappy to tell you over the phone how to do that the number one tip. I can give you if you're an employee get your W4. adjusted right away. So that you don't have this problem next year. Because the biggest problem, I see and a lot of cases a lot of cases, it really shouldn't have ever went that way. Which was it just happened one year? And then it kinda snowballed the other thing is. Yeah. Maybe it's time to get a little more aggressive on your tax planning snowballs is something we see here. All the time in California. It happens all the time. Somebody does something in year one. And they're not quite sure about it. Or they don't do something like not file the return. And then you're two comes along. And they said, well, how can they file your two? They didn't file your one or they owed money from your one. And now they are more for your too. So they make mistakes. They don't file the return because they owe the money, and that's very very common that people will start off with a relatively small problem like a medical problem and make it a bigger and bigger problem. And we're here to help you as tax attorneys as defense attorneys were not judgmental whatever you did. Whereas how could you have done that? We're not going to say that to you. Where say, okay, look, here's your position. And here's what we need to do to make the best of it. And we know the divorce rate is so high that a lot of listeners got divorced in two thousand nineteen rather than twenty eighteen and the divorce law change, the taxes polar opposites, and this law took effect one one nineteen unlike most of the other things that were one one eighteen and prior to the new law if you were the recipient of spousal support oftentimes. Times called alimony you reported on your return. And if you the pay or of spousal support you deducted it that's flipped on its head. But only for divorces that were signed on one one nineteen in there after before that it's still the old rules, but for the new ones, what's so very important. It's no longer income to the recipient, but it's no longer deductibles to pay or. So if you're in the process of a divorce, and you're going to be either a pay e or pay or of spousal support. This tax will vastly change what you're gonna receive and keep or pay. And that's something that it's it's so important to factor that in to the divorce proceedings. What's the right number bottom line? That's why it's so very important to do these calculations before you sign on the dotted line. One of the things we do is tax attorneys is give you our opinions on things. And what that means is oftentimes attacks payroll say what would happen if I did acts, and we'll tell you so you can plan because sometimes you. To do just a little differently than you thought and can make a huge result. And what you never want to hear from who whomever does your taxes. Whether it's us or somebody else to badge it did it that way. That's what we're here to prevent say. Look, do it this way and get the maximum tax benefit.

"I was having a drink with some friends, and they were talking about taxes something about one ninety nine A and everyone was real excited. I gotta tell you. I was lost. And I wanted in my missing out. You're listening to practical tax with Texas, Ernie Steve Moskowitz. The new tax law has given us so much and one of the things I wanna talk about right now and doing the tax return. It's Michael the aggregation rules. But before you get into them, we need to know, a brief summary of what kind of benefits are we dealing with. And this is all about our favorite code section one ninety nine. Hey, joining us right now colleague, associate friendless praying. We worked together for over twenty years list. Yeah. That's talk season. We're making a really big push to identify clients that have multiple businesses or multiple rental properties. Because of this new how these agregation rules come into play. And and the elections that need to be made. Now, how are you dealing with that Steve in the rules will cause you a lot of aggravated if you don't know about what to do of Malul tax humor, which you're used to from over the years. So basically when somebody gives you something nice. What do you say usually people would say more, and that's what the aggregation rules give us. So what happens is we know with one ninety nine A. And if you're not familiar with one ninety nine I strongly suggest you listen to our previous podcast. But basically it lets you if you qualify take eighty percent of your prophet is being taxable instead of one hundred percent that's a big deal, but there's all kinds of limitations. So what happens with these limitations? You have the election. If you have. Multiple businesses to aggregate and combine them or not you don't have to combine all the businesses. You can combine two or more or any number, but watch Al because once you decide to make the aggregation you have to do it for the rest of your life, except if you have a new business, then you make a decision if you'd aggregate that business or not. So let's have an example suppose, we have a situation where Sally has an escort that makes a profit of a million dollars. She would have a one ninety nine eight deduction of the lesser of twenty percent of her QB, I qualified business income essentially profit or fifty percent of the W two wages or twenty five percent of the W two wages and two and a half percent of the depreciation. So let's assume that she goes ahead and pays herself at least four hundred thousand dollars. She meets the rules and instead of paying profit on the million. She only pays taxes on eight hundred thousand she goes off to attack seminar, and she meets what will become the love of her life, Bob, but he's not a corporation. He's a sole proprietor, and he makes a million dollars profit to how much one ninety nine A. Does he get zero because a sofa prior to our campaign himself W two wages so poor. Bob is stuck paying taxes on a million Bob and Sally fall in love get married. They decide to aggregate now Sally pays herself a salary of eight hundred thousand out of a million profit. And now they get to the duct twenty percent on the both businesses, by the way, you don't have to marry to do that. Bob could do that as well. If both the businesses belong damn, but that's just an example of the power. That's and also with real estate. What's important is a real estate business is entitled? To one ninety nine eight, but a real estate investment is not. So what's the difference between an investment in a business? There's a lot of things it's way beyond the scope of this podcast. But one of the things the government looks at is how many properties are you managing the more properties. You're managing the more. It appears that the activity is a business with the aggregation rules. You're putting together your various rental properties and that would help. And and again, there's lots and lots of examples here on the aggregation rules. But this is something where and you don't just sit down and figure it out for this year. You have to get out. Your crystal ball put on your Swamy hat and decide. Is this going to be good for you upcoming years? So you'd actually want to go ahead and do some calculations some estimates. How do I think my businesses? Are we going the future because remember once you make this election? He can't change it. So again, do we want to do this or not and you do your calculations based on this year and your best guesses on up coming years? Lots of citizens to make and also like everything else there's rules here that you have to go ahead and follow. But if you know the rules, then you go ahead and qualify for GRA Gatien. And as we know from some of our clients is a save this tremendous money. Steve I think just in our practice, I know in our practice and and tax practices around the country. A lot of tax extensions are being filed for the March deadline in April deadline because there's a lot of decisions that need to be made. There's a lot of back records that need to be looked at. And so people can really benefit if they can again you have. The ability to pay tax on only eighty percent of your profit instead of one hundred percent, but you have to watch out for all these limitations know about them. So the job of a tax attorney is to get you around as many of them as possible and have these benefits oftentimes by making a very small change in your business. You can have a huge deduction that otherwise you won't get you've been listening to practical tax with tax attorney Steve Moskowitz to hear more podcasts. Go to Moskowitz LLP dot com.

"I think I'm a pretty smart guy. I mean read the Wall Street Journal in this guy. I know what the Jim tells me he's paying taxes on only eighty percent of his income. It's this thing in the new tax law called one ninety nine eight. It sounds interesting. We have the same occupation my missing something. They're listening to practical tax with tax attorney, Steve Moskowitz. The new tax law of twenty eighteen has remarkable opportunities for taxpayers to save money. But it also has some very precise requirements. They can take those benefits away from you today. We're going to discuss my absolute favorite new section the internal revenue code one ninety nine a that. If you qualify let you pay taxes on only eighty percent of your profit. Instead of one hundred percent joining me is my longtime colleague tax attorney, Liz sprain. Why don't you give us a little bit of the basics of one ninety nine eight. So fascinating. We've had a lot of fun with it this year will I for the first time in American tax law. It matters what you do for a living. There's a special group, and it's not good to be in this group. It's called specified trades or businesses for examples doctors, lawyers, sometimes it can be it can if you know us than how to get around it. So we say we'll all right. We have a situation where there's some magic numbers if you're single it's one hundred and fifty. One thousand five hundred married it's three hundred and fifteen thousand double that with an extra fifty thousand if you're single for a partial benefit and one hundred if you're married, but let's take an example of Sally Sally is an orthopedic surgeon. She makes a profit of a million dollars. Well, wait a minute. Sally is way over the limit. Is there any deduction for Liz? Is there some way around the get the orthopedic surgeon, plus she's in specified service group. Right. That was one of the interesting things this year was counseling some of our doctors and lawyers accountants clients as to how that's tax provisions going to affect them because they don't get the benefit. Generally, the general rule is they don't get the benefit of the twenty percent tax deduction. But we had a lot of fun really diving into our clients businesses and figuring out maybe what qualified and what did not or what could be spun off as a different business entity. Now, the revenue service did give us some guidelines final guidelines for when we're those issued, Steve, for example, Sally in my example. Could set up a separate business. That's not part of the specified trader business in her case. It's forgive the the colloquialism selling spare parts, the artificial knees. The artificial hips. So what she can do is set up a separate S corporation. It's not subject to these more stringent rules and get around the fact that she's in this specified group. That's one of the things that if you're in the specified group, you wanna take a look at because if you qualify, that's a way around them law. Practice has had a little bit harder time at trying to fit into these new regulations. But a lot of what we found is a lot of the law partners that had these associations. They also held real estate in different real estate interests. Now real estate was also a big boon to this new tax law. Yes, it was. And with real estate, we have all kinds of things first of all there's real estate qualified for the eighty percent of the profit deal. Yes. If it's a real estate business. No, if it's a real estate investment, but also the government was giving away. The store they greatly increased appreciation, for example bonus. Depreciation went up from fifty percent to one hundred percent. So now, there's a lot of property that instead of writing the property off over many years, you can write it off in the year of acquisition. And as we know what the time value of money, it's always bearing to have the benefit now than many years from now a couple of clients that made some big improvements to their properties one involved. A tesla charging station one involved a a new parking lot. And there's lots of things to for depreciation. Although it's not new the new law makes something else that's been around for quite a while cost. Segregation analysis even more valuable with that does once again concretely accelerate appreciation, for example. If you buy a rental building, we know that the life is thirty nine years residential properties twenty seven and a half. But here with costs analysis and engineer is sent to inspect the property. And he or she says, well, wait a minute. This is thirty nine your property. But this. Is fifteen year property tenure property five year property eight once again, greatly accelerated depreciation giving Klein a lot more benefit. Now. Glad you brought that up, and and one instance, we were able to save a client a lot of money. He purchased a building and made six hundred thousand dollars of improvements that needed to be they don't you? Don't get to qualify for those types of improvements over over the course of ver- bonus depreciation so he had to to separate that out. So over thirty nine years, so without cost is that we are able to to do a cost segregation study, and it came back and a lot of the property qualified as five year property is tenure property. It was really beneficial. Absolutely. You know, it's one of the things is that, you know, oftentimes of head guests come in the office and look at the difference in faces coming in and going out. And that's an example of one of the very happy face is going out because you save them so much money. Liz, you know, he did leave here happy, and he originally just came in. For tax return because his prior CPA. He didn't believe is fire CPA about the having to allocate the start up to his building over a number of years and. You know, we were able by talking to him and diving doing a deep dive into his business and getting to know him and seeing this cost agregation may have be really beneficial. We were able to recommend that. And it really was saved them a ton of money and also by doing the deep dive into the business a lot of times. We'll discover something else and say, hey, in addition to particular code section like our favorite one ninety nine. Do you know, you're also entitled to do this this and this and people are just amazed? And this is something where oftentimes clients with little or no change in what they're doing in business can have a huge difference in your taxes.

"Every day. I look at the calendar one day closer, April fifteenth, and I'm not ready. I'm not even close to ready. I don't know what to do. You're listening to practical tax with text attorney Steve Moskowitz. Hi, I'm tax journey. Steve Moskowitz with longtime Moskowitz tax attorney live sprain. April fifteenth is almost here. And you're just not ready. We understand we see it all the time. Liz order some ways that we can help. Well, I think it's important to know your rights as a tax payer. You can file an extension to get your books together. If there's some adjustments that need to be reviewed by your tax attorney, but that's very common. I there's a few rules that go with extension which is an extension of time to file the return, but not an extension of time to pay what we do in our practices. We take a look with the client their books records. What the issues are trying to come up with an estimate there the rule of thumb one hundred and ten percent oftentimes people are coming to a tax attorney because they an anomaly happened that something happening. They sold some. Properties they came into some money or there was a there was a theft. There was something that happened that year that which was kind of rare for them. So they're looking for advice on what to do. And so that usually puts us in the position where one hundred ten percent, doesn't quite meet the muster. Right. Nobody wants to be giving the government and industry loan either. So what we do then is sit down try to come up with the best estimate file the extension that gives you an additional time to get the taxes prepared and get the positions to find and file in October. It was very important to file that extension by the due date. Because if you don't the penalty is five percent of month or twenty five percent a year. So that means if you came in and Yoda one hundred thousand dollars, you would oh an extra twenty five thousand hundred twenty-five in my example, just because you didn't file the extension. So it's so vitally important and everybody should go ahead and founding. That's not filing by the due date. Some people think oh, they'll do it later. No, you really important to do it or before the due date. I think so I think I think our clients benefit just getting it done knowing having the peace of mind that it's filed. There's a, you know, there is the theory that if they're going to get a refund. It's no foul. No harm the whole extension process works. It changes your due date from April fifteenth till October fifteenth, however from experience police don't wait until October fourteenth to start putting your records. And if you do that what happens is so many people cheat themselves because they don't have enough time to get all the deductions this way. If you go on extension that gives you heavier. You don't have to work on every day, but don't put it off. And the other thing too is it's important if you work on an early sometimes you need to get something from third party. If you call them up on October fourteenth here, she's probably not going to be able to give it to you in time. You have plenty of time. But start working on it. Now, client, great client. Find business really is great at what they do. But they're not great with our paper gunners. There's three different businesses which is actually worked out well for them just by. Virtue of habit entities are organized. But the books were a mess, and they came in and the principle of the businesses basically said, well, I don't really file. I haven't filed in years. I don't really file. I'll just wait and see just do what you can do. Right. So which I we get a lot we get that a lot, and that's very human. And it's a reality of trying to do business and keep up with their paperwork and renting being good at what you do. But not maybe not with paperwork. So we, you know after talking to Steve, of course, divas very methodical, and he's got a process, and it's a proven process, and he he is well, we're gonna take over and what we do is. We file extensions and we're going to work through this. And we just got him on a monthly program where we just met twice a month for three or four months. Got all the back books fixed up was able to file his current year return on time by that Octo ber that what alternately ended up being in October deadlines for him. And got that done in a way that saved them a lot of money. That's all the penalties are late in. It's just so easy to let it snowball. Ball NBA lax with it's really just a free money for the government the tax return like the Olympics. That's what's televised. It's everybody looks at you. See people running around the track. It takes a relatively short period of time. The real work. Any Olympics is not the actual game. It's the four years of preparation for the game. And that's exactly what Liz is talking about the more preparation. You do the better result that you can get a simple return. And you're not ready to file or if you have a complex return. And you're not ready to file I think bottom line filed out extension. It's just going to save you penalties. You can do it through your attorney. You're you're counting. You can do it online at the IRS dot gov. Big picture that I think people sometimes miss most often nece, sadly is it. It's an extension of file the return. It's not in extension.
