  1. Regarding the convenience fees for paying taxes online with a credit card, if you are having to pay 2012 estimated taxes as a person with self-employment income, you are permitted to write off these convenience fees as a biz expense on your 2012 tax return next april. it’s a legit write-off.

  2. Also, $1,623 for business class NYC-VIE over thanksgiving, either non-stop or transfer. I have never seen fares this low for business class on this route… it’s about what coach costs in the summer.
    You can even fly Swiss on certain dates for this price, sadly only thru GVA… but still phenomenal value for Swiss business class. I’m just not sure about that 40 min transfer time in GVA… lol.
