Oktoberfest is a long-standing German tradition in which the entire country celebrates after months of hard work, culminating in the harvest. Well, we have just finished our own harvest time, with the coming and going of April 15th. Though there won’t be a national celebration to mark this event, but I hope that our staff can enjoy their own Oktoberfest with family and friends. They certainly deserve to do so, considering how hard they have worked the last few months.

Each busy season has its own challenges and nuances. But this year was truly unique since our profession was faced with the first major tax reform in more than 30 years, with the implementation of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. I am so proud of the entire team in not only how they skillfully learned and implemented the complexities of the new tax act, but also how they all came together to meet the challenges. It is very rewarding for all of us to serve our clients, explaining the nuances of the tax act and opportunities available to help them minimize their tax liability. I would especially like to thank our clients for their trust in us and for making our work so enjoyable and rewarding.
