Downtown Franklin has gone from a one way traffic pattern to a two way! There are new directions to our office coming from Route 140 South. Take a left onto Emmons Street, a right onto Main Street and then a left onto Dean Avenue. Our office building is two buildings behind Dean Bank, on the right. Coming North on Route 140, the pattern has not changed. If you need more detailed directions, you can find them on our website.
If you have been a victim of identity theft you will receive a six (6) digit IP Pin number in the mail from the IRS in December. You will need to bring this number with you or mail it in with your information. Your return will be rejected if we do not have this IP Pin number. Use our website to keep up to date with any new scams that the IRS has uncovered. Keep in mind, the IRS will only contact you via mail.
This year we will be emailing your tax return through our new CCH Portal where you can also send your CPA any important tax documents and/or QuickBooks files. The drop box can be found on our website under File Sharing. (You will need to request a printed copy if you want your return in that form). You have the final responsibility for your tax return, therefore, you should carefully review it before you sign and approve the return. If you receive your copy of your return electronically, via CCH Portal, it is your responsibility to save the file to your computer to access your return in the future.
