With the holidays here, we wanted to take a minute to let our clients, friends and community know how grateful we are for you. In this season of thanks, we have many things to be grateful for. And one of them is working with the wonderful clients we have. Thank you for your support over all these years and we appreciate the opportunity to continue serving you, your families and businesses. Hope this season is filled with lots of happiness and joy, health, and prosperity.
Once again, we are honored to be recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in the North Bay for 2018. This is the 8th year in a row that Linkenheimer has been voted Best Place to Work in the North Bay and it is truly a testimony to the amazing, hard working team we have here and the community and clients that have supported us all these years. We are grateful to call Sonoma County home and it’s also why we feel the importance of giving back. Over the past year, we’ve volunteered over 1,000 hours as a firm to community projects locally and abroad, including Rotary, Redwood Empire Food Bank, Nicaraguan Eye Care Projects, Elsie Allen High School Foundation and many other incredible organizations focused on making our great community better for everyone.

Year-end tax planning could be especially productive this year because timely action could nail down a host of tax breaks that won’t be around next year unless Congress acts to extend them, which, at the present time, looks doubtful. These include, for individuals: the option to deduct state and local sales and use taxes instead of state and local income taxes; the above-the-line deduction for qualified higher education expenses; and tax-free distributions by those age 70-1/2 or older from IRAs for charitable purposes.
