Pay Up or Get Back
April 14, 2014
This is a big night for procrastinators. W2's, EZ forms, deductions and write offs are being considered and discussed right now. Taxes are due to be filed by tomorrow. Not only are there many who will be downloading and trying to figure out the latest edition of Turbo Tax (which I hear is super simple) but there are a ton of accountants and office staff just trying to remember to breathe as they too are under the gun, especially when it comes to that last minute walk in client or a friend who needs a favor. Here's a list of helpful sites to include on the air or on your web site. Remember that most local libraries are open tomorrow and they have computers and most necessary tax forms.
Happy number crunching!
