Working with IRS during the 2014 Tax Season

Now that tax season is over you can step back and breathe a little easier for a couple of weeks. Then you will begin receiving calls from the clients that are on extension or you may begin calling them. In many cases you will be calling them until October 15th – your next week of craziness.

During these next couple of days of peace and quiet – I would like to hear how your interaction with the Internal Revenue Service worked out this filing season. After IRS Commissioner John Koskinen announced “only to call IRS as a last resort,” I had visions of the phone ringing constantly with tax questions from consumers who were not members or clients. Amazingly the phones were normal – Whew! Maybe this was just us, I have to wonder how others faired over the last four months?? Thoughts? Comments?
