It must be busy season.

As the traditional accounting “busy season” inches toward completion, the professionals at Schneider Downs once again celebrated the Pancake Breakfast, an annual tradition for many years.

Leaders from the firm’s administrative departments arrived early on Saturday, March 28, to prepare and cook breakfast for everybody who is in the office that day.  This year, more than 100 people were in the office, keeping the chefs hopping.

“Busy season is always a challenge, and we realize that our professionals work extra hours and weekends to help meet all of our deadlines. The breakfast was created as a way for firm leadership to say `thanks’ for helping the firm through another busy season,” explained Tom Harvey, Director of Human Resources and chief pancake flipper.

This brings to mind a convenient benefit of e-filing tax returns: Nobody gets syrup on their tax return.
