On another discussion board that is only for tax professionals, the topic of firing clients comes up from time to time. And this time of year (as in the first half of April), is one time you can generally count on the topic coming up.

Anyway, I just heard my favorite "firing" line. Doubt if I'd ever have the courage to use it, though.

"Dear Client: Sometimes I wonder how this office would be able to function without having you as a client. Beginning tomorrow, we're going to find out."
