Shout it out loud: A new year and decade has arrived!
You know what that means. It's time for a brand new bunch of Saturday or Sunday Shout Outs for the 2020 tax year.
As in its earlier iterations, this feature allows me to share good tax info from other places and gives me a bit more free time each weekend.
Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. So I'm just going to keep on sharing and shouting.
