OOPS! A BELATED HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO ME
the garbage and nonsense of the current Presidential campaign I actually forgot
to acknowledge and celebrate a milestone anniversary this past July.
the first post of THE WANDERING TAX PRO on Sunday, July 22, 2001.So this mast July I celebrated the blog’s 15th
TWTP after attending a workshop on blogging at the 2001 National Association of Tax
Professionals annual conference held at the Hilton Riverside in New Orleans.
Here is the
very first TWTP post –
“WELCOME TO THE NEW WEBLOG OF ROBERT D FLACH,
THE WANDERING TAX PRO!
+++ The ECONOMIC GROWTH AND TAX
RELIEF RECONCILIATION ACT OF 2001, signed into law by President Bush on June 7,
2001, has made Section 529 state college savings plans (named for the section
of the Internal Revenue Code) an even better way to save for your child’s
Earnings on money invested in
Section 529 Plans grow tax-free.Beginning in 2002, withdrawals from state-sponsored plans will be
tax-free is the money is used to pay qualifying college expenses.
+++ I recently returned from the
annual conference of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF TAX PROFESSIONALS, held at the
Hilton Riverside in New Orleans, where the keynote speaker for the opening
session was IRS Commissioner Charles Rossotti.
This was the first time I travelled

As I was walking down Bourbon Street
heading for dinner at Tony Moran’s PASTA & VINO, I passed a nude bar where
the hostess was offering passers-by the opportunity to “wash the girl of your
choice”.Good clean fun, “Nawlins”
While in the Crescent City I saw “CHERRIES
JUBILEE”, a delightful comedy written by four local women, at the intimate and
very company SOUTHERN REP theatre on the third level of the Shops At Canal
Street upscale mall.The show had the funniest
and most innovative way to dress the set between scenes.”
