It’s Just The Right Thing To Do
Yesterday, I met with a new accountant. Julie is exactly the kind of person I want looking over my shoulder-thorough, meticulous, but not uptight. Three traits that are sometimes diametrically opposed!
Several times during our conversations, she made the comment, “You just do that because it’s the right thing to do.” She was not referring to chairitable donations to get your taxes down to a certain level, but the “right thing” was strictly based on the idea of helping humanity and those around you.
Uncle Sam gives us the opprotunity to create some win/win/win situations with our taxes. I like this. Everyone does. But even the U.S. Federal government aside, as Julie said, you simply do things because it’s the right thing to do.
