Oh My…The Eve Of The New Year!

December 31, 2013

Another year has gone by with so may tax law changes and filing updates…. but let’s not talk about tax stuff quite yet… Let’s talk about Gunwel Associates Inc. and what is new at the office. First and foremost our office has moved to beautiful Louisville Kentucky. We are located on the East End of Louisville, very close to the famous Papa Johns pizza headquarters and home to the even more famous Louisville Cardinals.louisville-cardinals-mascot

Such a great town with interesting factoids…like:

  • The City of Louisville was founded in 1778 by George Rogers Clark and is named after King Louis XVI of France.
  •  Zachary Taylor (1784-1850), 12th President of the U.S., grew up in Louisville and is buried in Zachary Taylor National Cemetery on Brownsboro Road.
  • The Louisville Slugger baseball bat was made by Andrew “Bud” Hillerich in his father’s woodworking shop in Louisville in 1884. The brand name “Louisville Slugger” was first used in 1893.
  • “Happy Birthday to You” was written by sisters Mildred and Patty Hill in their Louisville kindergarten class. Originally called “Good Morning to You,” it was later changed to this tradition birthday anthem.
  • Muhammad Ali, world recognized Louisvillian and Kentucky’s Athlete of the Century, was a three-time heavyweight boxing champion.
  • The Ohio River stretches 981 miles and is one of the major rivers of North America.
  • The Old Louisville neighborhood near downtown is the largest Victorian neighborhood in America.
  • The Cheeseburger originated at Kaelin’s Restaurant on Newburg Road. In 1934, Margaret Kaelin’s husband asked her to put a slice of American cheese on his hamburger and the legend was born.
  • Jennie Carter Benedict, a Louisville restaurateur, created Benedictine, a spread made of cucumbers and cream cheese.

As always Gunwel is available to discuss any and all of your financial (and tax) needs, so don’t hesitate to contact us either by calling us at 502-290-2065 or visit our website at and email us through our link.

The IRS, in what some consider a proactive move, announced in October that there would be a delay of approximately one to two weeks to the start of the 2014 filing season. While delays to the start of tax season are becoming routine, the reason given this time isn’t late legislation but rather the 16-day government shutdown that occurred in October. According to the IRS, additional time is needed to allow adequate time to program and test tax processing systems. So filing season officially begins January 28th…but no worries as Gunwel can still see you sooner and you can get in line for your refunds.

Have a safe and fun New Years Eve and we look forward to seeing you in 2014 to help you with all of your tax and financials needs.
