A better letter

BY J. CARLTON COLLINS, CPA

Q: Can you point me toward a good website that provides default business letters and contract wording so I don’t have to prepare all of my business letters and contracts from scratch?

A: Instead of referring you to a website, I will instead direct you to Word 2013’s templates, which provide thousands of standard letters and contracts. To access these templates, from Word’s File tab, select New, and click the Letters category. Use the Category listing in the right pane or the Search box near the upper-left corner to refine your search, and then click the template to download from Microsoft’s template repository, a sampling of which is pictured below.
