Yes, that shouting you're hearing is for the end of the chaotic, COVID-ridden 2021. Alas, we're still going to be dealing with the coronavirus pandemic (or endemic) for at least a bit into 2022.
I know, it makes me want to scream and yell and curse and shout, too. But I'm going to try to channel those urges into tax shout outs in 2022.
As in past years, this ol' blog's weekend feature will continue to recognize timely, helpful, interesting and sometimes amusing tax articles and posts.
The reason for and format of the Saturday (or Sunday) Shout Out(s) for 2022 remain the same. Sharing good tax info from other online sources gives me a bit more free time each weekend while keeping all y'all faithful readers up to date.
Or as we say here in Texas (and, I realize, elsewhere), if it ain't broke, don't fix it. So without further ado, let's get 2022's tax sharing and shouting going!

You can read more of the whys and wherefores of the Shout Out idea in the original post about the one-weekend-day posts. There you'll also find all of 2017's Shout Outs.
And if you interested in who got tax-related hollers in the last four years, you'll find them on the 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021 pages. Yes, they also have the same megaphone image as the current collection. Again, not broke so not fixed.
Thanks and I'll say it again, enjoy your weekends with a little bit of taxes on the side. I know I will!
