The Dating Game

Funds for Learning has made the suggestion that the dates of the window should be fixed.  I agree completely.

I'm at a conference today, and the number one question I'm getting from people walking by is, "When will we be filing this year?"  The answer is "I don't know."  OK, so I can tell them that it looks like we'll have a window very similar to last year, and the USAC Board confirmed that timing this week, but we still don't know the actual dates.

Imagine if the IRS waited until January each year to announce when your taxes would be due.

At least it's much better than in the past, when the window would open a few days after the Eligible Services List was released.

Now, I would like to see the window close much later than it is now, but I would settle for at least having a set date.  Imagine how nice it would be to know that 471s were due on March 25th each year.

Now if we could just figure out a way to make the window close on June 30th....
