FICO presents the UltraFico Score

by | Oct 30, 2018 | Blog | 0 comments

For those of you who bemoan your credit score, FICO, the company that everyone recognizes as behind that magical number is making some changes! FICO is calling this the “UltraFICO Score” and damn if it doesn’t sound sexy.

This “UltraFICO” item will be customized to include just the banking information that you choose to share and will have ability to move you up (or down!) the credit score rankings. Per a former employee of FICO and Equifax, John Ulzheimer, “It’s like combining peanut butter and chocolate.” Let’s take a moment of silence for the large part of the US population that has peanut allergies and won’t be able to enjoy this metaphor or any benefits of the “UltraFICO” credit score. More details and a continuation of John’s quote from USA Today.

Unfortunately, I found GMP when my mother passed. She had a trust set up and I had no experience with one. I received excellent advice prior to filing taxes, that allow for the transfer of assets with little tax implication. The tax process was simple for me, Justin took over once he had details and cleared up all question from filing our taxes. Thank you for a job well done!read more

My partner and I started our very first small business last year. Justin has been a blessing to us. Being new at all of this, we didn’t understand much of how business taxes work. Justin explained and answer all of questions that we have. He took care of everything for us throughout the year and have made life so much easier for us. I couldn’t have asked for a better CPA. Highly recommended!read more
