As the month “Marches” on, and we at LBF are in full tax season mode, we want to remind those of you whose returns we have finished to please get us your 8879 electronic filing form ASAP so we can file your return (which we will not do without this form), and assure your filing is timely. Also, remember that even if you owe taxes (we hope you don’t), the IRS will not be looking for your money until April 15th.
In addition, if you haven’t gotten us your work yet because you might still be missing some information (i.e. a K-1 or brokerage firm 1099), please still submit to us what you do have, so we can review, evaluate and be in a position to finish your work timely when we do receive that missing piece.
Once again, thank you for your patronage. We at LBF appreciate your support and will continue to do our best to earn and keep your confidence in all we do.
