Client Testimonials

I became totally and permanently disabled after a working for 44 years. I returned to college late in life (while working full-time) to fulfill my dream of becoming an RN and at that time found it necessary to secure student loans. Three years after being declared totally and permanently disabled my student loans were discharged. In January 2013 we received a 1099-C form declaring said student loans that were discharged however that amount could be considered as income for 2012. This was a large amount of money and we live on two pensions and social security income.

I started looking on the internet for information regarding 1099-C and felt that this was something that we could not handle alone. I made phone calls locally to a very reputable tax group in a city near us and they said it would cost $500 for an appointment and that they really prefer to do corporate taxes and they referred me to a local person who had worked for them at one time, we called and explained the situation and an appointment was made and then the comment was made that "I will have to do some research on this" and flags immediately went up and we called back and cancelled that appointment. I had been researching the IRSwebsite and every place else I could think of and I was not comfortable doing our own taxes this year. We called another local tax preparer that we had used in the past and made an appointment, however prior to the appointment, while still seeking information regarding our situation,

I came across a website for Gary l. Bode, MSA, CPA, PC in Wilmington, NC. I called Mr. Bodeand explained our situation and asked if he could help. He spoke very knowledgeably regarding the situation and stated that yes; he felt he could help us. As Mr. Bode was in North Carolina and we were in New York I scanned all of our documents including back-up documents for all of our claims and forwarded all to him. Mr. Bode kept in touch with us via email; we have spoken on the telephone several times and have become very comfortable with his knowledge and professionalism. Also, as I am a true "worrier" I have continued looking into information regarding our tax situation and I came upon another web page for Mr. Bode that included testimonials which spoke of his experience with this type of tax situation as it became prevalent during the recession. This reinforced in our minds that we had made the right decision in hiring this person as our tax preparer.

I share all of this as our taxes are now ready to be filed (we do owe tax for 2012 but not the astronomical figure we thought we were facing), and we are confident that they have been prepared with the utmost care by a gentleman who has an excellent working knowledge of the situation we faced and the tax laws that were applicable to said situation.

Brunswick County NC CPA discusses the 2012 Business Personal Property Listing

Brunswick County NC CPA discusses Personal Property Tax Listing

Gary Bode, CPA: need a free initial phone consult with a Brunswick County CPA? 399-2705.

All Brunswick County, NC businesses must file the 2012 Business Personal Property Listing by January 31st, 2012. And, any Brunswick County CPA has stories of how well the County finds non-compliant companies. Don’t be confused by the personal property designation. Personal property just means all company assets, except real estate.

The NC Department of Revenue produces a generic Business Personal Property Listing for use by all 100 Counties, and can be accessed on their website. But, after your first year in business, Brunswick County mails you a partially completed form. While we generally prepare it the first year, many clients handle this task in-house after that.

If you want your Brunswick County, NC CPA to prepare, sign and send it for you, the State requires Form AV-59 to be on file with them. This is just a permission slip, like high school sorta kinda.

The 2012 Business Personal Property Listing is a three page form reporting the company’s assets by group, year acquired and original cost. It’s detailed enough to require listing of trivial things, like janitorial supplies. The company adds assets obtained during the year and deletes assets disposed of during the year, to the report. For companies operating as S Corporations and Partnerships, where the NC return requires a balance sheet, syncing the Business Personal Property Listing and the balance sheet is prudent. This is an informational tax return, as it does not calculate a tax per se. Because of the January 31st deadline, your Brunswick County CPA has to hustle to submit on time, so have your prior year acquisition and disposal information ready ASAP.

We’re a Brunswick County NC CPA firm with a virtual office that provides greater convenience for local clients. We prepare Brunswick County Personal Business Property Listings. For a free initial phone consult, please call (910) 399-2705
