Hello, I recently moved to the Boston area, does anybody have a recommendation for a tax preparer / CPA in the area? Would need help with federal and presumably 2 state returns.

Thanks!

My husband retired Nov. 1st and I've been in "charge" of the finances forever! But I'm still working and would like him to become more involved and thought joining the local Bogleheads would be a great idea. So please add us to your list for meetings. We live in the NH seacoast. thanks! Happy New Year. I'm unsure where we see the location for the March 7th meeting?

You can join by exchanging a couple of private messages with me!

Public transportation isn't too good to get to our usual meeting place, but I'm happy to pick you up at the Alewife subway station before I go myself. Would be a very small detour for me, no problem.

Metro-Boston Bogleheads, just a reminder that we'll meet again on March 7th at 1:00 pm (~3 hours). That would be in two weeks, time flies. :shock:

Well, very sorry about that, but I have to CANCEL our chapter meeting (which was scheduled for this Saturday).

I just provided more details by e-mail for those of you on my distribution list. If you're not on my list and were planning to attend, please contact me by a private message and I'll explain a bit further (and optionally add you to my list!).

I will rechedule the meeting as soon as possible, hopefully early April. In the mean time, stay the course, folks!

As to the next one, we'll keep the date (June 20th), but shift to the afternoon slot (1pm to 4pm).

Our next meeting will be on Saturday May 9th, 10:15am to 12:30. It will be an online meeting, based on Zoom. All details were shared by e-mail. If you're located in New England and wish to be added to my distribution list, feel free to contact me by private message.

The agenda will be the following:
1. A presentation about Investing Basics
2. An open discussion about the ongoing crisis

Most of you will be familiar with the material from the first presentation, the intent is two-fold:
a) an opportunity to invite family members and acquaintances who are new to passive investing
b) to give you some material to help you speak by yourself with newbies

Hello! Could you please add me to the list? I'm in the Western part of the state. After reading the forum for quite some time, I now registered, but still can't use PM's quite yet. Glad that the meetings are online right now, which makes them more accessible to me. Many thanks!
