The beginning of the year marks that dreaded time of year for many small businesses when 1099-MISC forms have to be sent.  These forms are sent to vendors and contractors from whom services were purchased in the prior year.  This year they are supposed to be mailed to recipients by tomorrow, February 2, 2015.   Although there […]

My apologies to the three of you who were following my tale of woe late last year in attempting to get my client health insurance quotes through the Federal healthcare exchange web site.  Year-end closing activities prevented an update until now.

Yesterday I had the chance to test the new healthcare exchange web site, coincidentally the same day that President Obama admitted that the web site had “kinks in the system.”  A small business owner client wanted to compare the cost of his own personal health insurance on the exchange to his current rates in his company’s group […]
