Tax Season . . . Finished!

We crossed the finish line at around 3:00 yesterday afternoon and called it a season. The day had actually ended in the morning - we had our extensions ready to go and one last tax return to prepare but that client called and said he'd be too busy to deal with it and that we could stand down. So we did.

Oh, sure, there were some last minute things to take care of: clients with questions as they picked up their returns, a last minute tweak here and there, even a brand new client calling at the last minute, but for the most part we were through and we had another successful filing season behind us. If we'd had champagne in the refrigerator we would've broken it out but we don't so we didn't. (Hmmm. Maybe next year?)

I've given my fantastic staff the day off but anyone whose name is on the door has to show up. Which means, um, me. And that's fine. I've got much debris to sift through and no time like the present to get started on it. All sorts of projects lined up, too, and they need to get started. And those extensions? Those returns still have to be done. October 15th is only six months away. What are we waiting for?

Anyway, I'm quite pleased with how things went. Could we do better? No firm is perfect so we've got much to do. But, overall, I'd say we're among the best in town. And you know it ain't braggin' if it's true.
