Finding Affordable Tax Preparation Software

by Lessie Lopez .

I am the accounting manager at a prominent country club. We are always thinking of new ways to show our appreciation to the employees. During a department head meeting, the general manager brought up the idea of tax preparation at no cost for all employees. We all thought this was a great idea and voted unanimously to move forward with the idea. Since I am the accounting manager, they gave me the task of finding affordable professional tax preparation software. I’m very excited about this project since my department will be implementing the program. I am very confident that the majority of the employees will take advantage of this perk we are providing.

As soon as I got back to my office I started searching the internet for tax software. I found one particular company that offered a tax software program that allows us to have up to three users, which would be perfect for our office. There are no limitations on the number of returns we can file in all 50 states. The best part about this software is that it is on sale for $199 which is a saving of $200. This company also offers 24/7 customer support.

At our next weekly department head meeting, I reported my findings on the tax software to everybody. The general manager was extremely pleased with the tax software I found and decided to put it to a vote. We had another unanimous decision and I was given the go-ahead to place an order for the software. We brainstormed on how to approach the employees with the good news. We had several good ideas but my favorite was to reveal it our annual Christmas party. This is our way of giving back to the employees. Without them, the country club would not be successful.

It Took Years to Find Work That Makes Me Happy

I finally feel like I found a place to be happy and satisfied when it comes to my job each day. My siblings always knew what they wanted to do with their lives when we were young, but I never did. I now work at a medical marijuana dispensary and love my job when I come into work each day. I run the place with my business partner. Today, I spent my time learning which type of electronic filling machines would be best for what we need in order to put together products more quickly. I find learning everything I can about the business so interesting. The best part of the work is meeting the customers who come in to buy the products we sell. I get to know many of them, and I would even say that some of them have become friends.

I mostly worked menial jobs for the first 30 years of my life. Continue reading

The Basics of SEO to Increase Your Page Ranking

by Lessie Lopez .

We had a great website that looked wonderful and was very easy to navigate. It was ultra-modern with a cool smooth look for the graphics and integrated video segments. Plus, it was not a template. It was custom made just for us. That is all well and good, but it is of no use unless it gets seen. We were almost on page two of the search engine results for relevant terms for our business. We then looked into affordable SEO service by Lift My Rank to get to the top of page one. A higher page ranking is the goal, and staying there then becomes the primary goal.

What I mean is that many companies can increase your page ranking for search results, but you want to stay there month after month and year after year. This is where SEO expertise comes into play. The algorithms the search engines use for page ranking change on a regular basis. The stuff that puts your page at the top of the rank may cause you to be delisted the next time the algorithm changes. You want SEO that will lift your rank now and keep it up there. Plus, you do not want to spend a lot of time monitoring to see how you are doing. Continue reading
