  1. Been busier than ever this year. No time for virus fatigue and depression. But there is sadness for those I know that have been affected physically and economically.

  2. Everything I send outside of the organization (banks, insurance companies, etc.) is labeled "Unaudited". I have a good idea of what I am and am not allowed to do in my position in the company.

  3. What always strikes me is how the seemingly smallest thing can affect one's life.

  7. Yes, the returns will just be filed late. IRS MeF will accept the current and prior 2 years (2019, 2018, 2017) up through the date of shutdown that occurs sometime in mid- to late-November. When e-file reopens in Jan 2021, you will be able to file returns for 2020, 2019, and 2018 at that point.
