Client Testimonials

I had a 1099-C for about $135,000. My husband didn't have any withholding on Social Security. His employer couldn't withhold due to incompetence. I felt utter dread wash over me. Memories of owing the IRS before were constantly on my mind. I called a local CPA. Besides being clueless, he wanted to charge me for every question I had about insolvency. I looked on line and found little hope of the countless stories of permanently disabled people like myself getting their student loans forgiven only to be asked to pay taxes on it as if it were income.
Somewhere, somehow, I find an article by Gary Bode. I bookmarked it for when it's time to do the actual taxes. With his excellent help in how to do all of this out of a virtual office I get my part of the work done. My questions got answered, for free. I give a retainer, do what I said I did and wait. I hear from Gary. I go into shock! How can this be? Not only do I not owe on the 135,000....Gary itemizes and after paying what was almost nothing in taxes we get $950.00 back! No more hubby doing the taxes online! I will use Gary Bode as long as he will agree to work with me!
It was so easy, no worries, but professional and top notch. I know I have thanked you Gary but I am so grateful. Thank you ever so much again!

NC CPA Discusses 2013 New Hanover County and Brunswick County Business Personal Property Listing | NC AV-59

New Hanover County CPA and Tax Accountant

Gary Bode, CPA: Gary Bode, CPA: all NC Counties require the 2013 Business Personal Property Listing. (910) 399-2705.

All NC Counties need a 2013, three page Business Personal Property Listing from any business residing in it. It’s due Jan 31st, 2013. “Business Personal Property” means anything the company owns or leases, except real estate, at their New Hanover or Brunswick County location. Real estate is taxed elsewhere by New Hanover and Brunswick County. And anything means anything!, even office and janitorial supplies. While the tax isn’t calculated on the 2013 Business Personal Property Listing form itself, the County will notify your company of the amount due. A Brunswick County tax officer states they have employees drive around the County and snap photos of all businesses they find! And I believe NC shares business tax return information with the Counties.

Here’s the link for the 2013 Business Personal Property form. Although NC provides the form, you mail it to the County. Faxing isn’t acceptable, probably because of s ignature required. Another link on the page lists those County addresses. Also on that page you’ll find links to myriad of sub-schedules some businesses must file.

Basically your business property breaks up first into groups IE types of property, and then by year.  Both acquisition and “deletion” of property are reported.  Information carries backward such that subsequent years remain listed.

Need to extend the filing date for the 2013 Business Personal Property Listing? In the past Counties have let us extend the due date to April 15th by writing to the contact described above.

NC Form AV-59

The Counties used to let CPAs sign the Business Personal Property listing form. And we still do for clients who need us to. How? Your CPA just files NC AV-59 which is a limited power of attorney.

“Initial setup of the New Hanover County Property Listing can be confusing because the terminology is strange. But subsequent year preparation is easier.”
