TheLiveBigWay* Digest – Confessions of a Cobbler

Tax Planning: Request for 2012 Tax Returns
We use your tax return information for a variety of financial planning purposes, not just when answering tax-related questions. Sending us your return now will allow us to do our work throughout the rest of the year. Now that the tax man has come and gone (unless you are on extension), please send us a copy of your 2012 federal tax return through one of the following secure methods.
