As a small business owner, I am used to juggling many different projects at the same time. In a normal tax season the number of projects at a time that we have to juggle increases. But after 40 years, it is something I have learned how to manage. But this is not a normal year. There is a continuous stream of balls getting added.

Here are some of the balls added in the first 10 days of March:

Employee Retention Credits (ERC)

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

Supreme Court Protective Claims

Following the America Recovery Plan Bill through Congress

Reviewing Minnesota nonconformity and its impact on additional changes

Oh yeah, somewhere in here we are also preparing, filing, and extending business and individual income tax returns. This is a lot of balls to add when you are already juggling a lot of them.

How do we make it work? Teamwork.

At JAK we share responsibilities so one person does not have to juggle all the balls by themselves. In this manner, we are less likely to drop a ball. Good people and shared responsibilities lead to a good result. I am thankful for my “co-jugglers” at JAK. Now I better get back to helping juggle balls, I am sure someone needs a break.
