The IRS has launched a special campaign encouraging taxpayers to perform a “paycheck checkup” to ensure the right amount of tax is being withheld from their paychecks for 2019. This is particularly important given changes implemented by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). For 2018, some taxpayers received refunds that were larger or smaller than anticipated, and some unexpectedly owed additional tax. To help taxpayers avoid this for 2019, the IRS urges everyone to use the “Withholding Calculator” available at www.irs.gov/paycheck-checkup. Taxpayers will need their completed 2018 tax return and most recent paystubs. Results from the calculator can be used to complete and submit a new Form W-4.

Alamo Heights High School Students Demonstrate Startup Spirit

I had a great opportunity to mentor SideKick creators, Trevion Godley, Nik Proctor, Browning Shemwell, Will Nunns and Jack Moses. Even though SideKick was a wild card in the pitch competition, they won the first place grant of $10,000 to further develop their SideKick app that matches homeowners who have household tasks, and not enough time, with teenagers who want to earn fast cash.  theKFORDgroup team supported the boys through months of hard work, as well as creating stickers and t-shirts, and handing out candy at pitch night. We are very proud of their accomplishment. Click here to read the full article featured in the San Antonio Business Journal.
