Albany--  It's late nights at the office for many tax preparers and accountants. That'll be the case all week as the tax deadline approaches.

Accountants at Mauldin and Jenkins have been extra busy the past couple of weeks. Stacks of finished tax returns fill CPA John McDuffie's office. He says the accounting firm has about 500 returns left to complete by the deadline of April 17th.

For the next week, he'll be in his office well into the evening.

"Most of our clients have already brought their information in so it's just a matter of getting the returns processed and getting them out," said McDuffie.

Mauldin and Jenkins begins planning for the season in December to make sure they're prepared for the big rush. The deadline is a couple of days later than usual because the 15th falls on a Sunday and the 16th is a holiday in Washington, D.C.
