  We Ride...

There are indefinite, unlimited reasons why to rock the Rock. Two important ones are - shhhhhh - the tax rate, aka the mil rate, is among the lowest in the country. 1mm assessment, 3.65k tax - not bad. And the other - shhhhhhhhh- for a vacation home, you can claim to the Feds, no tax owed for total rentals of 14 days or less. Two-week, tax-free income.

Feel free to talk.

  IRS and Wine, Let's Make it Happen

Sun is shining, the weather is sweet and the wine is neat. Making it happen the JPFCO way. The other day we did a another deal. The Seller wasn't really a Seller but became one because we make it happen. The Seller did not want to pay the IRS in one lump sum. Time to make it happen. We come up with an installment plan for the Seller and closed another deal.
Enjoy Wine Fest!!!

» John Shea's 'Grey Lady' Gets Theatrical Release


Well, every now and then the traffic goes in the right direction. In this case it's John "Horse Puss" Kerry hooking up his 'ol horse and buggy and clippity-clopping out of Dodge. At least that's the plan, but given his sheer ineptitude, the wheels could come off at any time. No more having to put up with Him waiting in line at Deluca's and bleating out in his best stentorian manner: "Do you know who I am?" Of course we know who you are, John, and that's the problem. You are a preposterously grand-standing "horse's ass" who has been consistent all his life. To wit: Greenvale, Fessenden, St. Paul's and Yale. I just hope that at this time next year, he'll be somebody else's problem; preferably Somolia's.
