Starting to Panic

It is April 8th. Do you have your taxes completed? Most people probably have their refund back and spent by this point.

My taxes are not done. I have no idea if we are getting a refund or if we will have to pay. There is less than 10 days before the IRS deadline.

We decided to hire an accountant this year for taxes because the King is now self-employed and I don't feel qualified to do them anymore. I gave the accountant our 2007 info about a month ago and I have been waiting ever since. We haven't even heard a word from them. I am starting to get nervous - if I need to do them myself I need to get started ASAP.

I had the King stop by yesterday at the Accountant's office to check on the status. The door was locked. He called me and I started panicking. Did the close up? They have all my W2\tax info - How do I get that back? If I have to do our own taxes, I NEED TO START NOW!

I made him call their phone number and they said the door was locked because they are not taking any walk-ins at this point. They assured him that they will be completed and will give us a call by the end of the week. I realize they are probably very busy, but I still don't feel good about it. They should have been done by now.
