How were tax professionals affected by the second filing season in a pandemic?

Drake Software for the third year in a row surveyed tax professionals about their experience during filing season. More than 3,000 respondents completed the survey, a group comprised of attorneys, CPAs, EAs, and non-credentialed preparers.

As the second year directly affected by COVID-19, the survey focused on issues related to the pandemic, like:

  • The filing deadline delay
  • Economic Impact Payments
  • Paycheck Protection Program loans
  • The Employee Retention Credit
  • The New Unemployment Exclusion

Respondents were also asked about their return volume and other challenges they faced this year.

Whether designing superheroes, penciling caricatures, or just doodling, I always knew I was going to earn some sort of art degree while in college. That was my goal before I decided to trade Edgar Degas for Edgar Allan Poe during a Freshman English class. The BA in English soon morphed into a double-major in English and Philosophy, eventually becoming an MA in English. It only makes sense that I learned of a writing opportunity for a local marketing firm while teaching a first-year college English course. Before I knew it, I was writing and editing tax-related articles for Taxing Subjects, and this has been my home since 2014.
