Yes, I know that Wednesday is April 15th. I’ve actually had that figured out for quite a while now. Where have you been? It’s been all over the newspapers, TV and radio.
I’m soooo happy that you stopped by to shoot the breeze and ask about getting you paperwork to me. All I’m doing is working on other tax returns and I haven’t been interrupted for all of 15 minutes. I am overjoyed that you think you can get me most of your paperwork Tuesday afternoon. I will be thrilled to look at what you bring in and give you an estimate of what to send in with the extension I will be filing for you.
I understand you are a little disappointed that I won’t have your return ready to file on the 15th. But I have many other returns to finish besides yours.
I know the myths but most tax pros do not load up on caffeine and stop sleeping in the days leading to April 15th in order to get all their returns done by April 15th. Believe me you don’t want me working on your return when I’ve been going without sleep.
No, I don’t take appointments on April 14th or 15th. My first available appointment is Monday. I will be happy to take the return if you just want to drop it off but I need those two days to finish the returns I can, answer questions, re-print lost vouchers, give completed returns to clients and e-file their returns.
It’s nice that you found me on the internet and have e-mailed me with a few tax questions. I will give them my full attention on Thursday.
I’m sorry you didn’t return this year but I understand all your friends are telling you that it’s stupid to pay someone to prepare your return for you. No, I really know nothing about Turbo Tax. I would suggest calling their support line.
