It's Tax Time!

We look forward to the opportunity to work with our clients again this tax season!!

It’s time to begin gathering information for the preparation of your 2023 income tax return(s). We have already provided the 2023 Tax Organizers to assist you with this. The tax deadline is April 15, 2024 this year. While we can file for an extension of time for filing the tax return until October 15, 2024, all taxes must be paid by the April 15th deadline. Therefore, we will need as much information as possible before this time to make a good faith effort in determining your tax liability (if any). In addition, if you are required to make estimated tax payments, your first tax payment for 2024 will be due on April 15, 2024. Also, a reminder about deadlines for S corporations and partnership tax returns – they are due on March 15, 2024 and C Corporation tax returns are due April 15, 2024.

Please note that we need to receive your tax data by March 10, 2024 to complete your return for April 15, 2024. You can mail or email (please email us a request for a secure link) your data to us, or call our office to schedule an appointment. Our ability to complete your return by the April 15, 2024 deadline is only attainable if we receive your data early enough.

Happy Mardi Gras!
