REQUIRED FORMS

  Questionnaire & Client Statement

Both required forms MUST be completed by ALL clients before tax preparation:
  • These forms provide us with important information on a few key items which must be presented and/or updated each year for the complete and accurate preparation of your returns.
  • If you fail to provide this information, you assume the risk that your return may not be complete and accurate.
  • Failure to complete these forms could also result in increased return preparation costs.

ELECTRONIC FILING

  • Electronic filing signature authorization forms must be returned to The Callahan Group within 3 business days for submission, and no later than noon on the business day prior to due date.
  • DO NOT MAIL ELECTRONIC FILING FORMS TO IRS or STATE AGENCIES, or with any payments.
  • You can return these forms by one of the following methods:
    • By mail to: 6316 Piccadilly Square Dr, Ste B., Mobile, AL 36609
    • By fax to: (251) 300-6021
    • By email: scan and email to taxes@callahan.pro
    • Or, you can return the forms in person.
  • Faxed or email copies are acceptable, please do not return originals when using the fax or email option.
  • Your tax return will not be filed until we receive these signed forms back from you.


TAX PAYMENTS AND PENALTIES

  • Any taxes that are owed must be paid by due date on payment vouchers provided.
  • The signing and return of the required electronic filing forms does not dictate, alter or control the timing of my payment of any income taxes which may be due.
  • The filing of the electronic return and the payment of any taxes due are distinct and separate functions.
  • The IRS assesses separate penalties for the failure to file a return, and for the failure to pay income taxes due. The most severe of the two penalties is the failure to file penalty.


EXTENSIONS

  • We are happy to file extensions by client request.
  • You must contact us to request an extension!
  • Taxpayers are responsible for the timely filing of their tax return. If you will be delayed in filing, it is your responsibility to request an extension. Filing an extension of time to file your tax return does not extend the due date of any taxes that you may owe for the tax year extended, and you will be charged interest and penalties on any taxes not paid by their due dates.
