FROM REMOTE BUSINESS SOLUTIONS, INC.
July 18 - August 31 2021
We are taking our summer vacation from August 22, 2021 through September 7. We are trying to get the final extended income tax returns for 2019 and 2020 done prior to this break. Payrolls will continue to be run on schedule even when we are gone. The normal out-of-state conferences are remote through the end of the summer, but the virtual meetings mean that I am sometimes double and tripple booked through August 21, so please schedule your appointments includling telephone calls whenever possible. General messages can take up to several days for me to see and respond to, although I will do my best to get back to you within two business days.
Don't forget about the "Free recorded workshop helps small business owners understand their tax obligations" with information found on the https://cp7.cpasitesolutions.com/~bctincje/BusinessEducation.php page. Check out the new resource page at https://cp7.cpasitesolutions.com/~bctincje/Client-Resource-Center.php, July Newsletter at https://cp7.cpasitesolutions.com/~bctincje/RBSInewsletter.php, and the new July business newsletter at https://cp7.cpasitesolutions.com/~bctincje/RBSIBusinessNewsletter.php.
Thank you to those of you who have already paid the annual net client share of Intuit's small price increase for clients effective September 1, 2021. With me paying the percentage discount of each client, most clients will pay no more than $30 more total for the 2021 tax year. Intuit's costs increased beyond our control, so of course they are passing the small increase onto the clients and onto the pro advisors such as me. Hopefully this will not inconvenience us too much and I DO APPRECIATE your payment of the small increase on your upcoming invoices.
We have NO current openings for new "income tax only" clients and are giving referrals to bigger offices that still have such openings available. There are no long-term project contracts available as our schedule is filled with "full-service" client work and "income tax extensions" at this time. Our schedule is full with extended 2019 and 2020 income tax returns, and full-service accounting and payroll engagements.
The only openings between now and the end of this tax year are for full-service (three or more annual services engagements). We are aiming to add three to six more client companies by December 20th before we break for the holidays, in order to maintain the current level or better of client services for 2022. Please consider recommending me at https://cp7.cpasitesolutions.com/~bctincje/RecommendJeanine.php and recommending my website at https://cp7.cpasitesolutions.com/~bctincje/ReviewWebsite.php to help me provide current or better services for you.
There will be renewal offers for current full-service clients between October and December for the 2022 tax year, with the best pricing for the earliest accepted offers. Seasonal clients are offered vendor/contractor discounts from October to December for the tax year at hand but must accept before the tax year ends; otherwise they can pay full pricing with the next year’s pricing after the tax year at hand ends. During the times that you are considering your next year services options, I will be glad to discuss any potential changes including services, products, vendors, and any referrals needed with you. It is important that your upcoming needs be addressed annually so that your unique service requirements are arranged in advance of the upcoming new year. It is important to your businesses and you, that services be continuous and not disrupted, and that any needed transitions be planned to allow as smooth of an experience as possible.
New brochures are posted on the company website and on Jeanine's LI profile. There will be a few physical copies brochures available for potential clients if any of you are interested in our referral program at https://cp7.cpasitesolutions.com/~bctincje/refer-a-friend.php. Calvin and I have mailed the new business cards out to current clients and colleagues. Let me know if you did not get the mailing and I will get it right out to you.
Upcoming local community events include:
Please let me know if there are any events in your communities that you would like to see posted.

HELPFUL 2021 Income Tax Season Links
One way people can get the new tax year off to a good start is by checking their federal income tax withholding. They can do this using the Tax Withholding Estimator on IRS.gov. All taxpayers can use the results from the Tax Withholding Estimator to determine if they should:
• Complete a new Form W-4, Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate and submit it to their employer.
• Complete a new Form W-4P, Withholding Certificate for Pension or Annuity Payments and submit it to their payer.
• Make an additional or estimated tax payment to the IRS.

New Business Hours and

As usual the e-filing system will shut down around Thanksgiving. We are normally shut down for holidays shown at https://cp7.cpasitesolutions.com/~bctincje/Closures.php and update our financial systems in January while the IRS e-filing is shut down and Congress gives us their final law changes for the tax software.
Private RBSI clients please schedule your telephone appointments, so that I can call you at scheduled times. Urgent messages with an "emergency or urgent issue" heading in the subject line should be e-mailed to Buben.Jeanine@comcast.net or texted. Full-service accounting and payroll clients continue to be serviced according to your engagement arrangements. Please make a telephone appointment to discuss your concerns and questions as needed. Openings are available at https://cp7.cpasitesolutions.com/~bctincje/TaxMeetings.php and at https://cp7.cpasitesolutions.com/~bctincje/Appointments.php for accounting, payroll, and administrative matters.
