6 Ways to Cope with Tax Season at Work

Written by Kate Lopaze

Nobody likes the anxieties of tax season (is a dog considered a dependent or what?), but as Mark Twain’s ghost reminds us from beyond the grave, the only thing more certain than taxes is death. Bottom line: we’re stuck with it. That doesn’t mean you can’t make it a more fun season around the office.

See if anyone else shares your pain and denial.

Decorate the W-2 you get from Accounting.

Flirt with a coworker in the hopes that you’ll be able to file as “married” next year.

Make it rain in the break room when you finally get your refund.

Make sure everyone knows you’ve done your civic duty.
