It's all over but the shouting. That applies to last year and, for the most part, its associated taxes. But one thing that's still going on into 2023 is the ol' blog's weekend shout out feature.
As I've been doing for the last six years — something about time, flying, taxes, and fun — I'm freeing up at least one of my weekend days by posting a Saturday (or Sunday) Shout Out to some other tax items I ran across the previous week.
The headline's Saturday or Sunday option allows me to flip posting of the other tax info if that seems appropriate. But mostly, I do my shouting out on Saturdays. That's why it's listed first, and this year's first Shout Out is indeed on the first day of the first full weekend of 2023.
The reason for the shouting out is simple. As the years have gone by, I've increasingly come to appreciate a bit more time off from everything, including taxes and blogging. This quick posting provides me some of that free time, while also maintaining a way for both you and I to enjoy timely, helpful, interesting, and sometimes amusing tax articles and posts from other bloggers, writers, and the wider tax community.
OK, I've already used up some of my free time. So, in keeping with my expansive (and, admittedly selfish on my part) reason for this special page, let's not waste anymore of this weekend day and get to 2023's tax sharing and shouting!

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 rest of the last six years, you'll find them on the 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 pages. Yes, they also have the same megaphone image as this current collection. As the saying goes, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Thanks and I'll say it again, enjoy your weekends with a little bit of taxes on the side. I know I will!
