It simply asked whether the staff following the end of the tax season received a party and/or a day off for all their efforts. As I am writing this column, I checked for the latest results. Most firms, some 42 percent, had a party and gave their staff a day off, 24 percent of the firms held parties only, and 17 cent of the firms gave their staff a day of, but no party.
