Well, time marches on. Another year has passed and we are going through some changes. 2018 is the 40th anniversary of KSK. We have had some staff turnover as well this past year, as some of our senior staff moved to corporate work, and some of our junior staff have left the city or the firm for personal reasons. That being said, we're still here and ready to get cracking on your Tax returns this spring. Start thinking about it now!
