The latest Practice Builder Publishing survey of practitioner work related habits indicates that ‘there ain’t no off season’ for accountants and tax practitioners, as practitioners continue full-time workdays during off season.


According to survey results, the overall work day continued to hover at approximately six and three-quarters hours per day off season, with male respondents averaging just under seven hours a day, and female respondents averaging just under six hours per day.

The disparity between sexes appeared to relate to an increased one-half hour per day of time for female respondents to care for family members as opposed to male respondents.

Male respondents spent an average of approximately a half hour more per day involved in leisure and sports than female respondents, who spent an average of an extra half hour per day on personal care.

All this boils down to the idea that practitioners can earn a full time income merely working four months a year during tax season as a myth and a rumor. It just doesn’t hold water when compared against the off-season workload.

The only thing that was interesting in the survey was the indications that in addition to being full-time income producers females continue to bear the load at home, while males are more involved in leisure and sports.

There did not appear to be any significant difference in the amount of time either sex was involved in civic or other activities. (Females did spend a slightly higher amount of time on continuing educational activities,)

I can hardly contain myself with excitement as I look forward to a tax season survey to see if there are any changes in workload, or the differences between males and females in the industry. LOL
