It’s been exactly one month since tax season 2020 began. So let’s check in and see how busy season is treating our friends in tax so far:

Today, I had a potential client tell me I look like a kid.
Haha, yes, yes I do. I told him that sounds about right because I'm 29!
I couldn't tell after that if he was discrediting my skill set or not…

I had a potential new client try to tell me she was only going to pay me if I can get her out of a penalty. I politely explained that's not how client service fees work.

And we can’t forget about our friends in audit who also are dealing with their own busy season hell:
