Happy New Tax Year!
If the way we started this year is any indication -- let's all say it together: fiscal cliff nonsense -- 2013 is shaping up to be an exciting tax year.
That's why I'm glad I have two tax blogs to on which to hash out tax matters.
As has been my practice, I'll be recapping what happened last week at my Bankrate Taxes Blog here at Don't Mess With Taxes each weekend (mostly Saturdays ... I hope!).
But if you happen to miss those posts, this page will serve as an index with links to the previous week's synopsis.
