This Might Be The Most Grateful Tax Preparer In The Entire Country

It's rare we share any feel-good stories with you all so when I saw this letter of thanks printed in the New Jersey-based Daily Journal, I thought it might be nice for you to read. Let's all remember as some of you miserably trudge ever-onward toward April 17th that no matter how bad you have it right now, it could be way, way worse.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation to all my friends and colleagues who came to my aid after the fire that destroyed my office building on South Delsea Drive on March 29. Needless to say, as a CPA tax preparer, it could not have happened at a more inopportune time. However, it sometimes takes a tragedy such as this to bring out the best in people. For instance, many of my fellow associates and friends immediately came to my aid by offering their services, office space and what other help they could provide without request for any compensation whatsoever. For this, I will be forever grateful.

With that said, I also want to express my sincere and heartfelt gratitude to the firefighters and others who battled the fire so diligently in trying to save not only the building, but also whatever equipment contained therein. Fortunately, no one was injured and through their efforts, they were able to salvage my computers to the extent that I was able to retrieve the tax information of my clients. For my clients who have not as yet had their tax returns prepared, I will be at my office located in my home at [redacted for privacy].

In closing, I may have lost a building and other material things but I gained a faith in humanity that cannot be replaced.

Thanks again to so many who came to my aid.

Albert Maccani, CPA

Aww, that warms my cold black heart.

Let this also serve as a lesson to the tax preparers out there: OFF-SITE BACKUP, FOLKS. Seriously.
