Congratulations to VCU School of Business alumni Justin Kauszler and ACe Callwood (tweet pictured above) and Matt Russo, co-founders of Painless1099, on their $500,000 win in 43North, “the world’s largest business idea competition.”
Per the company description on the 43North website, “Painless1099 helps independent contractors (think: freelance designers and real estate agents) save for tax season. Through a smart bank account, Painless109 automatically withholds taxes based on user information and then deposits what is safe to spend directly to a user’s personal checking account. This allows contractors to focus on the work they know, while automating savings and avoiding an unexpected bill from the IRS during tax season.”
