A relatively “meaty” BUZZ as we begin the countdown to Christmas.

* A timely post from Kay Bell at DON’T MESS WITH TAXES – “Tax-free office holiday parties and employee gifts”.

* Russ Fox of TAXABLE TALK announces “Nominations for the 2019 Tax Offender of the Year Are Due -

To be considered for the Tax Offender of the Year award, the individual (or organization) must do more than cheat on his or her taxes. It has to be special; it really needs to be a Bozo-like action or actions.”

* The TURBO TAX BLOG reminds us to “Save the (Tax) Dates!

* Another reminder, this one from me.  Donald T Rump lost the 2016 presidential election.  The fact that his presidency was “the will of the people” is just “Another Republican Lie”.  

* Jason Dinesen explains “Contributions to a Roth Account Do Not Reduce Taxes in the Current Year” at DINESEN TAX TIMES

Can you guess which is the worst.  It is not a surprise.

* TaxGirl Kelly Phillips Erb has begun her “12 Days of Charitable Giving 2019” at FORBES.COM with “The Elephant Sanctuary”.

And continues with “MEANS Database”.

* Michael D. Koppel, CPA deals with the issue of “Independent contractor or employee? Varying tests” at THE TAX ADVISOR.

* Just so you know – Trump is not the only one guilty of obstruction.  Check out my post “Obstruction of the Constitution” at AMERICANS FOR COMMON SENSE.

COMING SOON TO TWTP – My annual review of 2019 The Year in Taxes!  Keep your eye out for it.
