March 2015: I’m still up to my ears in work, and am unavailable to take on any new clients for the time being. (To clients I’ve worked with in past years, this does not apply to you!) I will update this page when the situation changes.

If you have a very simple tax situation, feel free to send an email, and I can add you to a waitlist; I may have time to fit you into my schedule soon. But please don’t be offended if I can’t find the time to respond!

If you have a more complicated tax situation, it’s very unlikely I’ll have the time to prepare your taxes before April 15. You can certainly file an extension (see here) and get in touch after tax season ends, though I can’t promise I’ll be taking on work at that point…

Here are some general guidelines I try to follow, in the interest of keeping it simple. [...read more]
