Robin Harris’ Tax Checklist for Oklahoma City Taxpayers

Robin HarrisBlog

Every year within the independent tax and accounting business community here in Oklahoma City (and on various online channels), we have a little fun laughing at the newest TurboTax or Block commercials.

Robin HarrisBlog

These weeks are disjointed, these holiday weeks. As of this writing, there are only three days left in 2020, and this week contains New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

Robin Harris’ Annual Holiday Prayer

Robin HarrisBlog

This will be a different kind of note today than I normally post. Because the first thing to note is that a bona fide holiday miracle seems to have occurred: Congress agreed on another relief bill.

One of my favorite pieces of reading every year is the IRS Criminal Investigations unit’s annual report. Yes, I’m a nerd.

When Conventional Financial Advice Is Wrong by Robin Harris

Robin HarrisBlog

Is there such a thing any more as “conventional wisdom”? It’s a fair question to consider as we retreat further and further into our ideological silos as a society — only reading “news” from the slant that makes us feel smartest (“See, if [smart person I read] says it’s true, and I already think it’s true then it must be!”). … Read More
