Here's a quick rundown of all of the happenings in the CAM industry in this week's CAM Mashup!
The Nitty Gritty
First and foremost, it's important to talk about the elephant in the room--the persisting government shutdown. We make an effort not to delve too deeply into politics, only commenting when it becomes relevant to the CAM industry. Right now, there's definitely some relevance, because tax season is in full effect, shutdown or no shutdown, and you will still be responsible for filing on time, as the IRS has issued a statement officially acknowledging that filing WILL start on time. For more information on the IRS's statement and what impact the the government shutdown may have, see AICPA's blog post about the ordeal here.
It's no secret that some people (misguidedly) hate their HOAs. They see them as nothing more than corrupt entities filled with power-hungry greed monsters, and sometimes they're right. Just last week I was crawling around on reddit and stumbled across a story from the perspective of a homeowner who had taken down his corrupt HOA.
