bullet August 1, 2014

Even as I get more and more accomplished at work (more unfinished client cases done, more mystery documents placed where they should be, new business expense and income tracking put in place (for the first time in a year), payroll set up, payroll taxes and other liabilities paid all the way back to over a year ago when they stopped being paid, business files organized, client files organized, each year's tax spftware databases compiled and organized (still outrageously in progress), new policies created and written down in a policies and procedures manual (still outrageously in progress), training programs made for all employees and specifially for tax preparers (still outrageously in progress), and get agreement from everyone on new pricing policies, agreement on a new layout for parts of the office, and plans for advertising/marketing and for hiring and staffing, let alone taking care of all of the people who call or walk in with questions or with letters from the IRS or other agencies that need to be resolved ... even as I move along through this mess of a maze of misfiled, lost, or incomplete everything, I feel little satisfaction in the progress becuause no matter how much I do it is too slow. With the shorter summer hours and smaller staffing there's only so much that can get done each day and each week, but the amount of work to be done to get things in order and ready for the next tax season is huge, and far more, I fear, than the time we are being allocated. As frustrating as it is to be running around like mad every day trying to make sense of this mess and put some order to it, it is even more stressful and upsetting to know that despite all of the hard work it still may not all get done after all and we could very well face yet another tax season fraught with a myriad of problems -- problems that by all rights should in no way exist next year if we are simply given the time to have everything prepared.

How is it that with the hours at work cut back I not only earn less money (less hours = less money) and have way too much to do at work in the short few hours on the clock each day, but I also don't seem to have enough time to even do what I was doing before in my 'off' time (let alone do other additional things since I should have a full three more hours each weekday? It boggles the mind. It's like being in an episode of the Twilight Zone. Time moves faster now than ever before, and I have no idea how to keep up.
