Niagara Gazette — Like most accountants, the end of tax season doesn't necessarily mean it's time to put feet upon desks at Genovese CPA.
"We have business clients that we do payroll and sales tax for," said Genovese, whose father, Louis, started in the tax business in 1945, and whose business now includes his son, also named Louis.
"Some of our corporate clients are fiscal year taxpayers," Ralph Genovese added, meaning that the companies pay taxes throughout the fiscal year. "So, we'll find something to do."
But, there are some local tax preparers lucky enough to be able to lock the office door and head out with their golf clubs.
Dan DiRamio of EG Tax said that while Tuesday was "busy and crazy," in the EG satellite office at 1824 Pine Ave., the Niagara Falls office doors would be locked at 9 p.m. and stay that way until the next tax season starts in January of 2015.
While the EG Tax office in Amherst is open year-long, DiRamio, a retiree from General Motors who got his tax preparer certification 14 years ago, only works during tax season.
"I'm done with taxes after today," he added, a hint of satisfaction apparent in his voice. "My golf season starts when the weather breaks."
