I apologize then I would not be able to meet the deadline, I am sorry. I will opt out so that the question is back to the pool of open questions. If an expert can help, they would contact you.

what if i give you until the 19th
Expert:  PDtax replied 1 year ago.

Hi from just Answer. I'm PDtax. I can assist since the first expert opted out.

I can assist, but the price offered is low.

The analysis of the project will take an hour or so, but the writing of the notes pages to support the slides will take several hours in addition.

I will post an Offer of Additional Service for the project, keeping the time commitment in mind. Accept, and I can deliver the project tomorrow.
