1. WARHAFTIG & ASSOCIATES, CPA UPDATE
Beginning this month, you will receive the E-CPA newsletter from us, which gives you some additional information in the world of taxes, finances and the economy. We hope that you enjoy it and find it useful in your everyday activities.

Also, if you would like to schedule an appointment for tax planning (get a jump on next year and don’t be surprised), financial planning (investing, retirement, debt and credit card assistance) or anything else that we can be of assistance,
please do not hesitate to call or e-mail us.


2. IMPORTANT DATES – MARK YOUR CALENDAR
Estimated Taxes: 3rd quarter estimated payments are due on September 15, 2008. If you would like to learn more about making estimated payments, please give us a call.


3. WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR SPOUSE’S FINANCES
Are you and your spouse knowledgeable about each other’s
financial situation? Are critical documents up to date? Are
you prepared if a spouse is incapacitated or dies? In case
of an unexpected emergency, it’s prudent to know the details
and location of each other’s financial records and documents.

6. IS YOUR CREDIT SCORE COSTING YOU MONEY?
In these uncertain financial times, even those with excellent credit histories may have trouble getting a mortgage or other type of loan. That’s why it’s important to know your credit score and the effect it can have on your checkbook.

7. WAYS TO REPAIR YOUR CREDIT SCORE
Do you know your credit score? People with poor scores usually pay higher interest rates, which translate into larger monthly payments for a mortgage or an auto or student loan. Poor scores can also cost you when renting an apartment, applying for a cell phone plan or even getting the job you want. Luckily, there are steps you can take to improve your score.

8. RETIRING EARLY
Most of us dream about retiring early. For a number of
Americans, it is not just a fantasy, but a reality. A few
even accomplish it by their 30s. There are different ways to
approach an early retirement strategy, but one aspect is
certain – it requires careful planning.
