Now that it's the start of the fourth quarter, there's no better time than now to check in with your clients and work with them to ensure there are no errors in their tax documentation.

Getting in front of potential problems at the start of the fourth quarter shows clients you are thinking ahead and putting their interests first. These tips can help make your busy season smoother and add value to your client relationships.
