Done your taxes yet? Didn’t think so…

I think the office thought I was crazy taking photo’s and jumping on furniture and desks as they were all preparing peoples taxes (as seen below)…but that’s just how I roll. I eventually sat down with Tax Professional, Roya Ganji and her team and asked them a few questions. I also worked with H&R Block to go over my taxes from previous years to uncover any hidden refunds. The ‘Second Look’ process was actually really cool. OK Roya, take it away!
