When will you receive your refund? The answer depends on how you filed your return. The IRS should issue your refund check within six to eight weeks of filing a paper return.

Oh, how green are we? Let us count the ways...
We at Expect Tax and Accounting are proud of our efforts to be as green as possible. While we're not 100% green as of today, we hope you will be as proud of our past and future efforts as we are of operating in the lovely earthy color. Some of our efforts include...
We give our employees the option to work from home. This reduces the amount of pollution in our air by not having to drive or ride in a vehicle.
We're paperless! We offer a secure online portal for our clients to send and receive important documents, such as invoices, statements, tax documents, etc. This also reduces the amount of pollution in our air by not having to send documents via US mail. This also helps improve our efficiency as we receive the documents much sooner than we would via mail. Saves on postage, too! This also allows us to eliminate the need for filing cabinets, storage fees, filing folders, labels, and hanging file folders.
We only print when absolutely necessary. This means we utilize our computer monitors to their fullest potential with multiple windows open to view documents we are currently working on without having to print.
We travel to client locations when absolutely necessary. We don't travel for the sake of traveling. Frankly, we think traveling is exhausting. We utilize online meeting tools such as GoToMeeting or WebEx as much as possible when a meeting with our clients is necessary.
We work in the "dark" on a daily basis and use natural lighting as much as possible. When our lights are on, we use energy efficient 60 watt LED lights that actually use 8.5 watts.
Although we don't print much, we have recently replaced our old inefficient printer with one that has a higher Energy Star rating.
Steps we will take in the future to be even greener...
We are looking into providing recycle bins for aluminum cans, paper, plastic, and other recyclables that can be easily separated and recycled properly.
We are looking into using reusable promotional items, such as mugs and keychains, for our giveaways to reduce the amount of waste.
We will be looking into purchasing more recycled items, such as paper, notepads, and folders.
While we're not 100% Eco-preneurs, we are trying to be as reasonable and responsible as we can by taking proactive steps toward greener operations, which are not only good for the environment, but also make us feel good knowing we're doing our part.
So, how green are thee?
