Slow start to tax season?

Level 1

Has anyone else noticed a very slow start to tax season this year?  I know that the IRS only started accepting returns on 2/12/21, but I am feeling like my client volume is low this year.  Do you think taxpayers are holding off on filing because of the pandemic?  I am just wondering what others are experiencing.... thanks

I have a few more returns in than I did at this time last year.  But I had an avalanche of returns hit me yesterday.  Timing mainly depends on when your clients are receiving W-2s, 1099s etc, so if your clients are waiting on those things because they are delayed, you aren't going to see your clients yet.

This week's special - free roadrunner dinner with every return (legal disclaimer - you catch it and we'll cook it)

Seems pretty normal for me, Ive got an established client base that I see year after year, but Ive had WAY more new clients make appointments so far this year.
