- Once you have uploaded your questionnaire and all documentation, you MUST email us to let us know you are ready! We won’t know unless you tell us.
- If your file isn’t complete by June 20, we will most likely need to put you on an extension and prepare the return after the summer.
- We do charge rush fees if your file is complete less than three weeks before your return is due.
- FBAR extensions: Extensions are automatic with no request needed.
