How Long Should I Expect My Case to Last in the Firm?

How Long Should I Expect My Case to Last in the Firm? So let me give you a very rough estimate most cases in the firm average about six months we have some that are longer and we have some that are much shorter longer or shorter depends on who what type of case it is who's gonna be dealing with us on that case and the level of complexity on that case so what I commonly say is the cost and time dedicated to matters is driven by decisions to the extent we're able to make clear and quick decisions that moves matters along based on documents so how much paper is involved how much we need to go through how much we need to submit so on and so forth and it's based on bureaucracy how much hassle and headache are we getting from the government in dealing with your matter when we have a live person and that person is competent things move very quickly when we're dealing with IRS never-never-land it gets a little bit more complicated we try not to build for inefficiency but when dealing with the government there's always a certain amount of inefficiency baked into the process when you submit a document sometimes they sit on it for a few months and you don't get an immediate result they're not really a snap your fingers type of organization with that set with tax matters because we're controlling the scope of the information and we're controlling a lot of the movement on the case and we can put the ball back in their court are matters generally move pretty quickly so six months is a rough estimate a year is a good good track record for longer cases but that goes through peaks and valleys and obviously there's a lot of variables that go into but hopefully that'll give you a good estimate on how long tax matters take to result you.
