October is a great month to celebrate all the colors of the fall … and even a little bit of mischief with Halloween just around the corner. Along the way, don’t forget about many important tax and compliance deadlines for October 2023. Be sure to share this list with your clients.

In October, it is recommended that you:

  • Schedule year-end tax planning sessions with individual clients.
  • File returns for individual and C Corporation clients who obtained automatic six-month extensions.
  • Renew Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) for 2024.
  • Schedule some much needed rest and continuing education.
