How busy we are at tax season depend a lot on how late Easter Monday falls on the calendar. Clients often wait until after this long weekend to start their tax returns.
Unfortunately, this year Easter Monday falls on April 21, 2014, giving clients only 9 days to meet the April 30, 2014 tax filing deadline.
Given this circumstance, we strongly encourage all clients to bring their records to us by this Monday morning April 14.
As much as we’d like to accommodate everyone, we can’t guarantee completion – provided you have given us all required information – of any tax returns brought in after April 14, 2014.
Filing your return even one day late will result in an automatic penalty of 5% of the unpaid tax balance. The penalty rate will also increase the later you file your return or if this is not the first time you have filed late.
Here are the tax checklist you must complete as well.
Thank you for dropping off your Tax documents by this coming Monday!
