Look at the countdown [fname], time is running out for us to prepare your taxes!

Hey [fname], it is less than 1 month away from the tax deadline and if you have not made an appointment to come in with your tax information - now is the time!

With only weeks before April 18th at this point we just might need to file an extension if you cannot get your documents to us by Friday, March 25th. That way we will have time to accurately and completely prepare your returns before the 18th. Otherwise we may have to file an extension and I'd rather not do that if we can avoid it.

I know how busy everyone is and sometimes 'life' changes your plans but I want to make sure that we have you covered this year.

If you would, please call Sara Beth here at the office (704-552-8689) and let her know if you can get your information to me in the next week or so?

If you know you are going to need an extension, please call Sara Beth (704-552-8689) now so that she can get the information from you that we need and ensure that the extension is filed on time.

If you're really busy, just reply to this email. Below are some 'responses' you can just copy and paste so that we know where you are with your plans for us to file your 2015 tax returns.

Hope all is well otherwise!
