Tomorrow never happens, man. – Janis Joplin Bourke Accounting bookkeepers and tax preparers don’t practice procrastination.  The Bourke opinion is something along the lines of, “don’t wait ‘til tomorrow because you don’t know what tomorrow will be like.”  While Bourkers don’t procrastinate, this is not to say that they don’t engage in brief and… Read More

From management to me, Bourke Accounting workers are expected to keep their desks neat.  Because searching for important documents wastes time and a bombed-out desk looks bad, this directive makes sense.  Also, it’s much easier to forget an assignment when 20 Post-it notes, haphazardly stuck to the computer screen, vie for priority attention.  Even beyond… Read More

The floors are so clean at Bourke Accounting, you could eat off of them (if that’s your thing).  Bourke Accounting bookkeepers and tax preparers are also pretty clean; they smell good, dress nicely, speak nicely and prepare financial statements nicely.  In fact, if you didn’t know better, you might be tempted to label them as… Read More

Bill at Bourke Accounting once warned that Bourke employees should avoid talking about politics, sex or religion with clients.  This was sound advice last year, but it’s imperative this year.  As a country, we have become polarized to the point that a few inches of cloth are causing assaults.  If we can’t avoid stabbing each… Read More

It’s not easy to forget to do your taxes when you work for tax preparers like the ones you’ll find at Bourke Accounting.  Between getting your W2 placed right in your hand, mailing out tax organizers and talking about nothing but taxes all day, you would have to deliberately will yourself to neglect your own… Read More

We love you. You’re very special. – A Soon-to-be-Indicted President to violent Capitol rioters When the sun rose on Thursday morning, it brought dread with it; like murder victims splayed on autopsy tables, fear and uncertainty have been exposed in the light of a new day.  Will today bring another bombing?  Will unhinged masses again… Read More

Although the holiday season is over, you may find that you’re still receiving gifts from friends and acquaintances.   It’s nice to be surprised on a dismal Tuesday, after the holiday hype, with a giftbag vomiting sparkly tissue paper.  In fact, here at Bourke Accounting, we just received a box of chocolate-covered Oreos from a vendor;… Read More

It’s a new year, a clean slate and there are nothing but possibilities on the horizon!  Over here at Bourke Accounting, we’re hard at work preparing for tax season and looking forward to the wild slide to April 15th.  Although we were very lucky to have weathered the lockdown, we know that not everyone out… Read More

Even before the pandemic, you wouldn’t have bumped into your friendly neighborhood Bourke Accounting expert in an underground dance club.  Some Bourke workers were simply never interested in the light shows, the thundering bass or the questionable party favors.  Other Bourke natives (like a certain gentleman accountant or a specific civilian writer) actually did spend… Read More
