Wow, hard to believe that Labor Day is upon us!!! And, just like we're not quite ready to know how many months, days, hours and minutes it is to Christmas, we have to start thinking about how the New Year will be upon us, and it will be tax time again!!!
This year will be even more beguiling because at this moment, we don't know how or if the tax reform will be passed! We have had times when they change the tax laws in December!! I can assure you that I am watching this very closely, so as the time rolls nearer, I am knowledgeable to prepare tax returns for the 2017 tax year.
In the meantime, I will be taking my Annual Filing Season Program "AFSP"test. This is a voluntary program for tax preparers who are not a CPA, Attorney or Enrolled Agent. Through this program, we have to maintain CPE credits pertaining to current and past tax law, and follow IRS Circular 230, which pertains to the expected requirements of tax professionals.
As a member of the IL Chapter of the National Association of Tax Professionals (NATP), I have access to great education and research capabilities.
I am able to provide tax preparation services nationwide thanks to the Internet!!! So, if you're thinking of making a change next year, contact me. We can discuss your individual needs.
In the meantime, enjoy Labor Day!!!
