"I frequently tell people that if a traveler from Italy or Germany was listening to our nightly newscast here in Nashville online for a few nights in a row, they would cancel their plans to visit us!  It's all perspective. "

Disney Villas

I do not sell much Disney World at all but I have a great client who wants me to plan a family trip for about 40 of her family members next June (only about 10 of these 40 ppl are children under the age of 10). She is wanting several family members to stay together (like in Villas) but would also like for me to quote rooms for those who just want 2-5 people in a room together like in the same place as the Villas. I know all the Villas are in the Deluxe category but is there a "preferred" or "most liked" or "best location" that someone could suggest? I am trying to stay away from the most expensive ones (Grand Floridian, Polynesian) and she has already stayed at The Art of Animation before. Any advice/suggestions?See More

Iowa Corporation Tax Case again California Franchise Tax

I wonder if the same would hold true for a travel agency doing very limited business with California residents.Small Iowa corporation successfully challenges California's $800 franchise taxBy Karen Raghanti, CPA, Youngstown, OhioAugust 1, 2017  Editor: Anthony S. Bakale, CPAA state's seemingly small franchise tax can become onerous and a point of contention—particularly for groups of tiered entities that become subject to the tax at multiple levels in the ownership chain. These taxes often result in increased compliance costs due to a need to file returns for entities at multiple levels in addition to the burden of the taxes themselves. Even when the tax is nominal and simple to apply, the notion of paying an unjustly levied tax can motivate a taxpayer to take action, all the while knowing the cost to initiate change is significant.Take, for example, California's minimum $800 franchise tax, which is a relatively insignificant liability for many taxpayers that do business in the state.…See More
