September Guest Speaker: Ken Cain, Cain Accounting and Tax Service

Tax tips and items to watch for was Ken's message for the attendees this month. He reminded everyone to keep those valuable records, in detail for any type of deduction. The IRS is ever diligent in checking facts and he wants you to be prepared!

Just one of the many good tips came from a question in the Q&A portion: If you claim mileage reimbursement from an employer or you claim business use mileage deduction on your taxes, you must keep details of more than just the odometer reading. You must also have documented the date, location, people you met with and reason for the meeting. Details are so very important.
