Tax season was breaking my heart

A holiday song for tax and accounting professionals 

Sing this to the tune of “Last Christmas” by Wham! 

Chorus: 

Tax season was breaking my heart 

My staff was burned out and starting to leave  

Next year, to save me from tears  

I’m gonna be a Rootworks member
 

Verse: 

Last season, we did things all wrong  

Our tax client list was two miles too long  

This year, to save me from tears  

We’ll manage our clients smartly  

Verse: 

Two deadlines, come and gone 

We went digital, but clients still send mail 

Tell me people, why all the paper?  

Well, it’s the industry, it doesn’t surprise me  

Chorus: 

Tax season was killing our firm 

We suffered through it, and we now see the light 

This year, to save me from tears 

I’m gonna be a Rootworks member
