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.

While some #TaxValentines offer tax advice in a hokey way, others creatively gripe about their busy season problems. More accurately, creatively gripe about schedules K-2 and K-3:

On second thought, guys, don’t quit your day job. Jk. XOXO.

  1. The requirements for schedule K-2 and K-3 are the worst. Having to fill out that massive document for a private equity fund with no foreign investments and no foreign investors is a huge waste of time. Why do I need to fill out a schedule that shows all of the the K-1 line items broken out as US Source vs. Foreign Source income or deductions when the preparer can just look at the first pg of the K-1 and get the same information when their is no foreign investments.
