Her daily posts, humorous, pointed and insightful, have earned her a large following, both at her blog and within social media.
Don't Mess With Taxes has been named one of the Internet's 10 best tax sites by Top 10 Sources; cited by Moneysmartz as one of the Web's best tax information blogs; recognized as a Web Star of the Week by WebCPA; twice tapped as one of Austinist's best Austin blogs (February and August 2006); and included in the Top 10 Tax Stories of 2005 by TaxProf, a listing that was subsequently reprinted in the respected tax journal Tax Analysts.
But one blog is not enough for Kay. She also writes Bankrate.com's Taxes Blog, a perfect complement to her journalistic contributions to the website.
In 2009, her first solo book, "The Truth About Paying Fewer Taxes" (FT Press) was published. It examines ways individuals can make the tax code work to their filing advantage, whatever their stage of life.
