The Chief's phone started ringing last week - clients calling to bring over their tax information. He's already met with 2 or 3 clients, has appointments set up with a few more later this week, and picked up a couple new clients this year. He even turned down one client, who had a rather complicated small business - not only is that not his area of expertise, but it would have been so complicated and time-consuming that he would have had to charge $1500 to do the return (and that was probably a lowball figure).
He may complain occasionally about the work, but he does enjoy researching deductions for his clients and giving them tax planning advice as part of the package at no extra charge. (He's such a mother hen. 😊).
This is his time of year - he'll be busy until at least mid-April, possibly into May in the event someone wants to file for an extension. He's good at it, very conscientious (pays the penalty himself if he makes a mistake and has to do a correction). Can you tell I'm proud of him? 😉
