People make assumptions especially when they don’t know the answers. One of the assumptions that people make is that after April 15th, tax preparers don’t have anything to do. How tax preparers wish that was true; but, unfortunately it isn’t. Tax season seems to last all years long. Whether it’s individual, corporate, partnership, payroll, LLC, nonprofits, and other tax returns there is always something to do. So what do tax prepares after October 15th during the in-between return dues other than take some vacation days? 1. Prepare Fiscal Year-End business returns that need to be filed (LLC, Corporate, Partnerships, Non-profits, Partnership) 2. Take Continuing Professional Education classes to stay up-to-date on the latest law changes. 3. Prepare amended tax returns 4. Help clients with tax planning. 5. Response to tax notices and requests for additional tax support documents. 6. As an accounting and tax firm, tax preparers prepare and plan for the next tax filing season.
