My DH is a CPA and a Certified Financial Planner, and has been for over 30 yrs. There is alot involved every year for education and testing so he is up do date on all matters of taxes and such. My niece (age 31) is married to a NYC policeman and they have 2 children. She works for a big financial co in NY. And makes really good $$$. My question: Last February she came to my DH for her taxes. She needed NY and NJ returns done. My DH did them for her at half cost. She still has not paid us. I send her a bill every month for the past due amount. I just found out she just got a notice she is to receive $40,000. bonus and a $19,000. pay raise. How come she can't pay a lousy 300 for the returns that were done last Feb? I don't mention anything to her mom (my sister) because it's not her problem. But, really? Should I just keep sending the bills? BTW they are booking trips to Hawaii ( wish I could go) and weekend trips all over the states. GRRR What would you guys do?
