Hey I got through today!
After 45 minutes I got someone with a fax machine, and she could help. After three brief (10 minute) holds to check the guidelines for making appointments for a third party, the person was able to help. So I'm not as angry as I was.

Did I tell the story of my encounter with the IRS after my mother died? They had my sister dead-to-rights on a big mistake she made on Mom's return the year before. It's kind of a long story but ended surprisingly OK. In fact, better than I could have hoped.

I got a letter from IRS last month saying I hadn’t filed my 2019 tax return. It was easy to prove they were wrong since I owed money and mailed a check. Couldn’t get through by phone, so I filled out the form they sent and included a copy of return and cancelled check, so ball is back in their court.

That's great news, because I haven't found a new CPA/tax preparer yet. (Is that bad?)

I actually hate this decision, because I drive 4 hours each way to do taxes in my SD office on weekends. I will have several stragglers that will expect me to continue to come every weekend until the new deadline.

I will not.

I heard whispers that the AICPA (American Institute of CPA's) was lobbying for this, and in my mind that helped make the decision. I don't get it, taxes aren't any worse for preparers than any other year.
