As I write, it’s the day before tax day (which is Tuesday the 17th), and we are pushing hard during this final stretch. Procrastinators in Chicago are streaming through our doors, both virtual and actual (after all, we welcome them here), the phone is ringing off the hook, and my email inbox is overflowing.
Another year, another tax day in Chicago.
In all seriousness, today is an extremely busy day for us here at A.L. Taylor and Associates, PC — but as I am a person of ritual, I’m taking the time to write a note on this, of all days (though you may be receiving it later in the week, especially depending on how this day goes).
It’s been a great tax season — and for us, it’s not even close to being over.
Yes, we’ll have a bit of a respite after the individual filings (and a slew of other things) that are due tomorrow. But since we work so closely with businesses in Chicago, we don’t take the same kind of extended vacation of which many of our colleagues avail themselves after tax season’s completion.
But today’s date gives me the chance to say (again): We are extremely grateful for our Chicago client’s trust.
It’s always been our hope that we take a process that is so painful and time-consuming (with so much waste), and we convert it into a profitable enterprise for your business, through smart tax planning and the coaching of our Chicago clients. We’re proud to say that we have seen many of those stories this year, as we’ve continued to grow on the strength of our Chicago client’s referrals.
I won’t be sharing strategic business wisdom today (I hope you’ll forgive our needing to stay focused), but I would like to make one last request:
If you haven’t filed your taxes with us…
Go check out what our clients have said about us on public forums. You can find us on Yelp and Google, as they seem to be the place where many people are looking these days.
With a grateful heart…
A.L. Taylor and Associates, PC
