Tax Season Reflections

Roger and Annie review how the 2024 tax filing season went, discussing improvements in IRS customer service metrics but also lingering issues like postal delays. They cover key post-filing topics like evaluating firm performance, addressing remaining extensions and IRS notices, and navigating complex new requirements like beneficial ownership reporting. They also provide updates on the Employee Retention Credit program amidst ongoing fraud concerns and talk about preparing for future tax policy changes after the election.
