SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Fallout from the fiscal cliff is causing troubles for tax preparers, which means it could take longer to get your tax return this year.
When Jim Rogers starts his day at work, exciting is not what he’s expecting. For 40 years, he has worked as an accountant filing taxes for other people.
“This is the worst year I’ve ever had,” said Rogers.
This year hasn’t only been boring, but it’s been brutally frustrating.
“I have not, since the first of February, gotten anything accomplished,” he said. “Everything has been in a holding pattern for some reason.”
He has 100 clients, but says so far he hasn’t been able to file one return. So what does this mean leading up to April 15?
“It means I’m going to be working many more hours than I had planned to,” Rogers said.
