Course Description

This session is designed for any tax pro who wants a smoother and more productive tax season without having to resort to working long hours and sacrificing their weekends. Dawn Brolin, CPA, never works overtime, ever. Not even during tax season - and her firm cranks out a TON of tax returns. Come and learn how she does this. In her trademark “no holds barred” style, Dawn will share the core tech stack that she uses to address each step in her process plus share some clear rules and guidelines she has rolled out for her firm and her clients. It all starts with getting clients to send documents in on time (yes - this is possible!) and then set things up to run smoothly from there. Throughout, security considerations will be addressed, and each attendee will leave the webinar with actionable tips to help make the coming season their best yet.


  • Identify a tried-and-true solution to get clients to send documents on time and on the first request

  • Define a recommended tech stack designed to optimize staff productivity during peak season and beyond

  • List ways to delight clients and add value at every step of the engagement

  • Recognize easy ways to ensure each interaction between staff and client (and vice versa) is secure
