Free online tax return preparation offer

I will offer one free online tax filing service per day (subject to limitations) as a promotion of the advantages online remote professional accounting services.

In this second week of February 2017 my peer accountants with brick and mortar offices were already reporting tax season work overloads. Meanwhile in my virtual online office I am now caught up with my early tax season workload and am now waiting for new tax business to come in. My remaining clients are not yet ready to file their returns and may not be ready until late March or April. Since I am still looking for ways to promote my young CPA practice that is based on an online platform (that allows me to work from a remote location) rather than than a local physical office, I will offer a limited number of tax filing services without a fee.

In order to promote the savings and convenience of online professional tax preparation services, I resolved to offer one free tax service per day for the rest of February (and possibly longer) as a marketing promotion.
