Tax Preparers Use Valentine’s Poetry to Express Their Busy Season Problems

Happy Valentine’s Day! Believe it or not, our friends on #TaxTwitter possess talents that stretch far beyond understanding the tax code, deftly dealing with awful clients, drinking massive quantities of coffee, and being able to function somewhat like a human after working 80-plus hours a week. They can also write poetry! And what better day to express their love for their profession than Valentine’s Day.
