Disclaimer: This is not a best practice, but if you’re under the gun, it can save your butt – and your 18 month credit that is expiring. I personally used this strategy to pass Auditing in less than three weeks. You wake up one sleepy Monday in August. June is a distant memory. July was a blur. In your groggy state, something begins to nag at you. August. August. What happens in August? Mental inventory: Car tag renewal … kids go back to school … … and then it hits you. “AHHHHHHHH – I have FAR in 20 days!!!” Your significant other pauses while brushing their teeth; tossing a weird look at you.
