How are you celebrating "Opening Day?"

December 27, 2013

Jan. 31 is coming Lets celebrate!

Does it really matter, though?

The stress of tax season begins sometime in December, in the anticipation of holidays and year-end. Then, on Jan. 2, we start with the W2s. I find it interesting that the Internal Revenue Service opens tax season with excitement much like when a swimming pool opens for the summer or its opening day at Wrigley field. I guess they feel the need to celebrate the anticipation of the new tax season -while the rest of us are already heads down in work.

Other than that I cant push the button, Jan. 31 really has no bearing on my work life. But because the IRS declares it to be such an important date, I feel the need for us as a profession to celebrate this day.

So. On Jan. 31, lets all call the IRS and congratulate them on opening day! Or, at the very least yell over to your co-worker and say Hey, its IRS opening day!

Do you think it will catch on?
