Smart Shopping: Subcontract the boring parts of life

When you want help with “stuff,” it’s sometimes easier if someone will come to you.

Right now, you may be thinking about taxes due next month. You might want to consider a specialist for seniors’ taxes—there are deductions you or your accountant may not be familiar with. MK & Associates can sit at your kitchen table with you and help you.

If grocery shopping, redecorating, buying presents, or holiday preparations are overwhelming, Montreal Errand Runners can send a personal assistant. And if it’s mounds of papers or photos, downsizing, wardrobe shopping or finding more room when you move to a smaller space, that gets you down, Organized Success is your answer.

MK & Associates, headed by Mitch Kujavsky, has 10 years experience in personal and corporate taxation.

The company specializes in seniors’ taxation and avenues to explore to reduce your tax bite. Their expertise extends into a taxation of the disabled. Did you know you can use your total rent as a medical expense if you are living in a residence where there is a doctor and nurse on staff during weekdays?
