$500,000 Profit in 90 days
We tried to tell you.
Back on the 20th of January, AccountingWEB ran a story on the auction of the domain name www.taxes.com.
At the time the asking price was just $260,000.
Here we are 90 days later, and the current bid for the domain name is at a whopping $700,000!
Some quick thinking deep-pocketed firm could have made a nice windfall this quarter. So, the price is now $700,000. Anybody willing to gamble at this price?
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
