I heard an accountant say he loves April 15. Not only is much of the work done by then, but another year of the statute of limitations has expired unless there is some evidence of fraud. All tax preparers work long hours for several months leading up to the 15th. Those I am acquainted with usually take a few days off to recuperate after the deadline.
