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?

Hi! I'm definitely interested in attending future meetings if they're accessible via public transportation around Boston. How do I get onto the mailing list?

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!

So... back to scheduling and calendar management.

Our coming meeting is now scheduled on Saturday April 4th, starting at 10:15am till 12:30pm. Followed by an optional social lunch.

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

Please mark your calendars and sorry again for the last minute change.

One last reminder, we will proceed tomorrow as planned. Scope has been extended to both Metro-Boston/MA and Providence/RI chapters.

If you did NOT get detailed instructions by e-mail and would like to (virtually) attend, please contact me (e.g. private message)...
