You may or may not know that this year tax day is April 18th. Between the extra three days in April and this being a leap year there are four more days than we usually have during tax season.
Have you made your appointment/dropped off your documents yet? You might want to do that. This year we are imposing either a $75 “priority processing fee” for initial document drop-offs that occur after March 31st (if you’ve already dropped off most of your stuff but are waiting on a K1 this does not apply to you). If you don’t want to pay that, you can pay a $25 fee to have us file an extension. That doesn’t mean your return won’t be done on time or shortly thereafter, it just means we expect to have to file an extension. If we don’t have to file it, the $25 fee will be applied to your bill.
If you are a new client coming in after March 31st, expect to be extended. We do not like to rush new client returns.
So if you have been procrastinating about bringing in or uploading your documents, it’s time to stop and “git ‘er done!”
Albuquerque clients, please note that I will be unavailable for appointments the week of March 28th. I will be working in Nevada. So you have two weeks to get your docs in if you want to avoid additional charges.
