The Tables May Be Turning

Step by Step: Between the Dow Jones rising over 900 points yesterday, and the U.S. plan to provide $250 Billion dollars to America’s major banks and financial institutions this week, things seem to be looking a little brighter. It is hard to find hope in this storm of panic and struggle, but the light at the end of the tunnel seems to be getting larger.

Don’t Rest Easy: But remember, this doesn’t mean that it’s going to be easy. In fact, it’s going to take tons of work to get our economy back to a comfortable spot, and then even more work to maintain that stability. And keep in mind that when the economy gets back to normal, things like taxes are going to be back in full swing.

Duck and Cover! The IRS is going to use this re-building period as the perfect attack period. They know they’ve got tons to collect, and they’re doing everything they can to catch taxpayers with their pants down. Take it from me; if they can take advantage of you…they will. So don’t let them!

Smart Money: In the meantime, make the most of your money. Don’t drive so aggressively and save a few bucks on gas. Try and cut back on smoking or getting Starbucks every morning. You’d be surprised on how much you can save, just by cutting back on some bad habits.

Now you have the Smoking Gun…Use It!
