- This was easily my busiest tax season: 270 tax returns, and counting, as a few are still outstanding via extension. Most should be wrapped up in the next two weeks, though some will take longer.
- Considering that tax season is roughly 10 weeks long, that translates to 27 returns a week, or about 4.5 returns a day. The busiest days were February 18th and April 14th when I saw 8 clients. Most days averaged 5-6.
- Typically, the early part of the season was slow; surprisingly, so was the late part. I actually had time open on April 15th.
- 17 years in, I'm still amazed to see how seriously people take the advice of a friend on tax issues, and discount what I'm telling them as true.
