I have been working on 1040s since the end of January – non-stop 12+ hours a day 7 days a week from February 1 through April 14, and continuing at a much more realistic pace through the end of May. As Barbra Streisand and Donna Summer sang – “Enough Is Enough”.
I am pleased to say that all 1040 GDEs that could be done have been done! I am left with only “red files” (need more info). The balls are no longer in my court.
I am also pretty much up-to-date on my corporate/business work. I am waiting for some more info for my one 1120S GDE, the work for which is almost all done, and will need to work on two FYE June 30th 1120s in late July. And quarterly payroll tax and sales tax filings are not due until at least mid-July.
So I plan to devote most of June to ME! I will "sleep in" till 8 or 9 AM, do some traveling, see some shows (Broadway and NJ regional), attend parties, dine out leisurely, watch tv and Netflix DVDs, and clean and organize my apartment.
I will continue to post to THE WANDERING TAX PRO and the NJ TAX PRACTICE BLOG, and will spend some time updating my websites.
But 1040 activity will be kept to a minimum! Of course I will respond to IRS and state tax correspondence for clients as they are received, and probably do some 1040 GDEs if missing information is received. I may even catch up on some amended returns and other 1040 housekeeping items if I feel so inclined. But all at a very leisurely pace!
