As we approach the end of 2011, I would like to take a moment to reflect on the year just ended and what I hope to expect in the coming year.
First, and most important, I would like to thank our clients, professional acquaintances, advisors, and team members for all of your support, cooperation and most importantly, your friendship over the last year.
The past few years have not been easy for many of you. Coupled with all the goings on in the world at large and the constant bombardment of all the good, the bad, and the ugly from the news media, an aura of uncertainty and concern seemed to prevail.
Rest assured, when we work together to constructively resolve our issues, things will improve. I truly believe, based on what we’ve seen with our clients, 2011 was a turning point in the business world for many. Based on this and other positive factors domestically, I have an even better outlook for the year ahead. Progress has been slow, but it has also been steady, and with your determination and a dash of luck that our government takes a lesson from your actions, the future is bright.
Before we say goodbye to 2011 and welcome the coming year, don’t forget to review your tax position prior to year end. There are planning opportunities that can be utilized to minimize your tax liability between years. Many of you should have already received our year end planning memo which should assist you with identifying key issues. Please contact us with any questions.
For those of you who did not receive our year end memo, please feel free to contact us and we will respond promptly.
From all of us at Levin, Swedler & Company, Inc., we wish you and your families a holiday season of joy and happiness as well as a New Year of health, prosperity, and peace.
