Tax season is over – now what?

iStock-639202422CPAs in public accounting are (we hope) breathing a little easier now that April 17 – and then April 18 – have passed. This tax season was a doozy (see results from a recent poll, which anecdotally rated this tax season as “tougher than ever”) and some might have even worried they’d never get to this date.

But, they did. So, now what?

We asked a few OSCPA members how they relax and unwind once busy season ends each year and many informed us they take days off to spend time with family or go on a vacation. Some, we know, finally pick up that book they’ve been meaning to read or binge that Netflix series that’s been in their queue for months. Others treat themselves to a nice dinner, a massage or a second plate of dessert. No matter how you plan to spend the next few weeks “detoxing” from tax season, OSCPA member benefits have you covered.

  • A nice, juicy steak (Omaha Steaks – 10% off site-wide and free shipping)
