Gerald Haggerty of Haggerty Financial Services, Jim Thorpe, had his busiest year ever for filing income taxes.
One reason, he said, is because some individual tax preparers have given up the practice due to increasing pending educational demands and fees being assessed.
He said he had about 40 new customers this year.
Still, he's managed to get them all finished in time for today's tax filing deadline.
"I'm in pretty good shape," the veteran preparer said. "I have two pickups yet."
