Whew…. that was easy…. NOT!
Finally we can say goodbye to 2019 taxes … Wednesday Marked the due day for personal Federal Income Tas Extensions.
Luckily (where work and opportunity cross – neat saying heard recently) in the fall of 2019 we went through EVERY taxable portfolio and confirmed tax basis – both reported and unreported to the IRS…. never knowing what this year would bring. This exercise effectively minimized tax documents to one report per account.
Glad we are done!
A Nerd Incident with Robert Kaplan and the Dallas Federal Reserve
On Wednesday of this week, yours truly attended a Virtual Town Hall chaired by Robert Kaplan (pretty big Fan, here is a link to nine articles we have written for those interested).
In true nerd multitasking form, the Zoom meeting started, on the Cell, why not listen while jogging? Cell inserted into runners band on arm and away we go!
Expect comments on the talk, it was very good and interesting…..
Post jog, cell back off runners arm band and onto the couch as the live question and answer session had commenced.
“Next Question is from John! “Quick glance to the cell and an Unmute flashing button was covering my entire screen! Yikes
“John you must Unmute your device“
Twice from the moderator then twice from Robert Kaplan
With no question, the Unmute button was not going to be touched! Finally after what was likely 5 seconds, but felt like 5 awkward minutes, the moderator and Kaplan moved on!
Whew, embarrassing moment averted… or was it!
A question or two later and then this:
“Ok, that was our last question, let’s go back to John and see if we can get his question answered!“Oh No!!!!
This time the Zoom video was shut off before the Unmute logo hit the phone screen….
Can’t make this up!
Hope you enjoyed a nerds chance encounter with Robert Kaplan and maybe even got a chuckle.
Enjoy your Friday, and your weekend …. going to be chilly for the first time in our neck of the woods…. talk next week!
