IRS Recognition Week

April 15th is on Wednesday so over the past week there have been many tales of our nation's most essential and reviled (or is it essentially reviled?) agency — the IRS. 

Whether it's reports from the front lines, comparing the Service to crucial anatomy or wondering if irony could be a recruiting strategy, the IRS is on a lot of people's minds right now.

Since taxes butter the bread for many accountants, you'd have to be obtuse or possess the self-awareness of Donald Trump to not recognize the importance of the Service's role in the government. Of course, you can't expect your clients and other non-accountants to have the same appreciation for one reason or another.

So if you can find a place in your heart to show a little love or grin-and-bear-it acknowledgment for the IRS, this week, that'd be nice. Just try. We don't ask you for much.
