September is National Preparedness Month!

September is National Preparedness Month.  Unfortunately with hurricane season here and the ongoing threat of wildfires in some parts of the country, it is important for us to remind our clients to prepare for natural disasters and have an emergency plan in place.

All taxpayers, from individuals to organizations and businesses, should take time now to create or update their emergency plans.  This plan should include securing and duplicating essential tax and financial documents, creating lists of property, and knowing where to find information once a disaster has occurred.

The House of Representatives will remain under Democratic control, but control of the Senate is somewhat less certain since the balance of power will be determined in January 2021 following a run-off election for two open Senate seats in Georgia.
