Last year I waited a few days before leaving for “the Grave” and got some of the simpler GD extensions done before going away. However, when I returned my motivation was gone and the GD extensions dragged on.
This year my cat’s illness caused me to postpone my annual visit to the shore – and I somehow got a second wind! For the first time in my 37 tax seasons I have decided to continue to work on 1040s through the end of April – and take off in May!
I have been doing good – completing two to four GD extensions per day. As expected, many of the returns I start end up being transferred to “red files” – as more information is required. I have been both emailing and postal mailing my request for missing information to clients, and have been completing the returns as the information is received.
I am obviously not working at tax-season pace – but if I can manage to complete and mail out at least two GD extensions per day I will be very happy. I hope to have only “red files” remaining by May 1st.
So if my posts are spotty for the next week know that it is because I am working away on the GD extensions.
