This is likely my shortest missive of all time. Don’t dismay: if I survive the April tax deadline (and I always do), I’ll be back with long and windy articles with breathtaking insights and commentary. However, today my message is short and sweet.
You must return the signed Form 8879 before your tax preparer can file your return!!
How, you may ask, can you expeditiously get your signed Form 8879 to me (so I’m not late to the party)? I really don’t care how you get it to me: fax, snail mail, in person, carrier pigeon, email. I do, however, prefer that you use secure email or secure carrier pigeon because your social security number is on the form.
Happy tax season, and may all your Forms 8879 be timely!
