“Business Expenses” as Tax Write-Offs

Too bad businesses can write-off their costs of doing business because, at least in the case of Vanguard, the mutual fund company, that makes them sloppy and wasteful.

I had an account at Vanguard that I closed oh, roughly eight or nine years ago.  Today, as I have every year since, I got a letter asking me to verify my beneficiary designation for the account and to call if I wanted to make changes.

I presume Vanguard can write-off the cost of the paper and the postage for this thing and meanwhile, I can only wonder when I’ll stop getting them.  Geezus.

    I get similar mail for my wife. She has been deceased for almost 15 years. Guess it’s cheaper to do mass mailings than update data bases.

    Oh Tim. How awful. Gawd.
