Avast Ye Scurvy Dogs!

Hi all –

I had just enough time to make a quick video on a subject that comes up a lot – the tax laws that apply to finding treasure.

I know, I know! It’s about time!

I didn’t really edit this video’s captions, so if there are typos, sorry – I’m pretty busy!

Enjoy!

Here is a link to Reg. 1.61.

How I Came to Work in Taxation

Hello – the tax deadline is fast approaching! I hope everyone is ready for Monday!

I meet with many clients around this time and it never ceases to amaze me how I am often asked how I came to work in the tax profession.

Well… it’s a complicated tale. Luckily my personal biographer has just completed my completely accurate life history to the present – which should explain everything leading to my current occupational calling.

I thought I would share it with you.

Gezabelle’s life story as of 2013

Gezabelle D’Blogger , or Gez as she is known – has thus far led an exhilarating life full of adventure and discovery.

Gez was born on February 27 in the small quaint town of Henderson, Nevada. The daughter of migrant astronaut moon farmers, she lived in humble surroundings. Despite her meager environs, she dreamed of making it in the big city and worked hard at developing her now legendary talents.

After graduating from the esteemed Basic High School in 1986 she attended UNLV, where she majored in underwater basket weaving and earned her Bachelor of Science Degree. Confident that her education had provided her with an exceptional skill set, Gez embarked on a lucrative position in international espionage under the code name Gezabel Toadkiller. Regrettably, her promising spy career was cut short due to a freak waffle iron incident in the French Embassy.

Heartbroken and unemployed, she returned to Las Vegas to begin a new life. As a result of her excellent reputation and high level government connections it was not long after returning to Vegas that she secured gainful and meaningful employment. With her trademark optimism and can-do spirit she began a second career as a Space Alien Activities Coordinator and Planet Earth Tour Guide at Area 51. Again tragedy struck and despite a distinguished record of service and being four times decorated for Heroism and Bravery in a Buffet Line, she was forced to resign to avoid an intergalactic incident due to a scandal involving the Prime Minster of Zega Alfetti Five and a three bean salad.

Humiliated and disgraced, Gezabelle had no other option but to work as a janitor at McMurdo Station in Antarctica. Though she was facing a bleak and trivial existence, she soldiered on, determined to redeem herself in the eyes of the pan-galactic community and clear her name. While gracefully enduring these hardships she managed to accomplish her greatest and defining achievement -“ the uncovering of a Black Market penguin smuggling ring led by a notorious international criminal mastermind, Juan Carlos Smiftenberger.

After a prolonged battle, Gez single-handedly defeated Smiftenberger’™s sub-arctic attack squads and brought the vile criminal to justice. She returned home triumphant, reputation restored – a hero once more.

Unfortunately the years of combat coupled with her bon vivant lifestyle had taken their toll on Gezabelle and at the age of 44, she had to retire from the secret agenting profession. Satisfied with her past vocational efforts she returned to Las Vegas permanently. Now back in her home city, the 45-year-old former super-spy pursues a quiet life with her beloved partner Albert Mejia age 31, her son Morgan age 24 and her cat Reginald Fluffywhiskers age 2.

She currently works as a tax accountant.
