Taxpayers may submit their most amusing accountant interaction, or most comical post office tax-return run, through April 18. Stand-up performances, for those preferring to perform their anecdote rather than write it, will be held April 17. The winner will receive a $415 gift certificate to The Laugh Factory in celebration of the conclusion of tax day on April 15. The contest is being held to promote New York City accountants and bring out their inner Bob Newhart comedic side.
“With all the frustration tax season brings, there must be some humorous anecdote to bring light to the aggravating situation,” Masada said.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
