Paper File

Recommended Posts

I don't think waiting is a good option. Better to file it as soon as possible.  There is always a possibility that unreported income could surface later, wiping out the refund and resulting in a balance due with its accompanying P&I.

I have two fairly complex returns that I gave the options to the clients. Both ended up wanting to wait to e-file. I agree, because I don't want some part-timer doing the data entry with potential errors after I've already proofread the returns. Even scanning is not error proof. They both owe, but want to pay the extra month's interest to have an accurate return and the acknowledgment (one client works in Singapore, other is very elderly and frail).

Facts and circumstances in everything!  Sometimes getting that e-file ack is worth the delay.  The client can always PAY now, and wait those extra weeks to file.  Sometimes it's more important to get the return in process.  We do what is best for that client and that client's overall situation
