Sparks Clinic attends seminar

Megan Borne and Whitney Smith, Chiropractic Assistants at Sparks Clinic, recently traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada for their first Parker Chiropractic Seminar.  Borne and Smith had the honor of meeting and learning from former President of Parker Chiropractic College, Dr. Fabrizio Mancini and former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver, Jerry Rice. While there they learned about the philosophy of chiropractic and how to help others have a healthier life with chiropractic. Sparks Clinic specializes in chiropractic and acupuncture and has offices in Norman and Moore. 

 

Tax prep

A federal judge recently granted a permanent injunction to stop IRS’ plan to require all tax preparers to be registered, pass a competency test and complete continuing education. Many considered this a blow to the IRS, which has funneled heavy staff resources and millions of dollars into the effort, and also to American taxpayers who continue to be at the mercy of ignorant or fraudulent tax preparers.

 Judge James Boasberg referred to the IRS requirements as an “invalid regulatory regime,” siding with the position of the Institute for Justice, the Libertarian organization that filed the suit, that IRS’ efforts are a “power grab.”
