Ah, one month to go and this tax season will be over. I am enjoying it though, so I am in no hurry to see it end. After sitting on my duff for three years with no work, I am busy, focused, involved. My accounting and tax skills have never been sharper. Today a man brought in his college student son to have his tax return prepared, an extra easy one. While in conversation with the dad about his son's finances, I immediately perceived a possible education credit that the father could take, since his son was still his dependent; in 5 minutes of checking I found that the father, who had already filed his tax return, had an additional $1,400 refund coming for 2011. I will prepare an amended return for him tomorrow. Found money, baby. I asked him, "Aren't you glad you came in today?"
