Mostly good, but sometimes stressful.
My dog has recovered. He is elderly, though, and likely won’t live for more than 3-5 years more. He is, however, a wonderful addition to my life. He gives me a reason to get up in the morning (something that I’m not always thrilled with – temps in Lorain, OH can be frigid in the winter). He reminds me to get up from working and walk around for a while.
He reminds me of how important it is to have someone who is completely delighted that I am home. He is always up for a cuddle after dinner.
I’m deep in Tax Territory. Working on getting ready for 2021, and wishing that the damned Flat Tax had been passed. Perhaps some leeway for larger businesses that want to deduct the costs, but – honestly – most businesses would do better with a straight Flat Tax.
Of course, it would put a lot of accountants out of business. You might still need someone to manage your income statements and cash flow accounting. For those businesses on the stock market, other financial statements would be necessary. But, mostly, it would put the emphasis of business on actual BUSINESS.
Now, for the foreign corporations (including those that are reputably American, but mostly assembled in the USA from foreign parts), a simple tax on imports would suffice. They would pay the flat tax in addition. We could structure the business taxes in two tiers – one for larger businesses (particularly the multinationals and interstate ones), and a lesser tax for the smaller businesses.
The Chamber of Commerce and other business organizations, along with the larger corporate companies, would have a shit-fit. (Yes, I think the stronger language is appropriate – they would be ENRAGED!)
Now, it’s back to work.
