Thanks for ruining my day. After seeing the overflow pile decreasing in the corner of my office, I was thinking I wasn't sitting too bad. Then I did the math😢 ----------------- I'm a couple of percent ahead of you, but that still is a long way from home. We still have a big pile of Sub S returns waiting to see if MN is going to change their mind about PPP loan forgiveness.
100% of those with any information in completed
3% waiting for signed 8879
1-2% will end up extended
2-3% more may show up.
Admittedly the total returns is down 15% or so from my peak years
First camping trip first week in May - I'm spending the summer fishing, camping and a motorcycle trip thrown in somewhere.
Took 44 years to figure out how to manage things to work out this way, and let clients who didn't want to get their stuff in on time to figure out I wasn't the one for them. I run my life not the clients. Old and tired of babysitting clients has it's benefits.
"I run my life not the clients. Old and tired of babysitting clients has it's benefits."
Just because some of us are running behind schedule, please don't assume that it is because of babysitting clients. For some of my older clients I will tend to have a little more patience, but this is out of respect for them rather than playing babysitter. I don't babysit - never have - never will.
My wording may have been impresise. I didn't mean to infer that other's were babysitting and that was putting them behind..Just that I got tired of it long ago and have been able to weed those out.
And I also don't include my elderly clients in that group. I take lots of extra time to take care of a number of them, the way I would have wanted someone to help out my Grandmother.
Best to all of you.
You're making me feel better about a trip the last week of the month. I've been doubting my choice the last few days. I'm trying to get as many as possible finished before leaving. I'll catch the last minute ones when I get back if they don't go somewhere else. Those are the habitual procrastinators anyway.
We mostly do 1040's, a few 1065's and a few 1041's. Just guessing but I think we have completed about 85%, 5% here that still need completed, 5% partially completed but holding for more info from client and the other 5% will probably be filing extensions.
Well, I cant figure %s because I dont know how many my total will be for the year, I transfer in as they come in for their appt.
Ive got 480 done, 80 in process, and another 40 on the calendar and Im thinking maybe another 40-50 still hanging out there thinking its cool to be last minute louies!
Im up to my armpits in Trust returns today!
