No CPA is looking forward to the long hours and deadline pressure of Tax Season. The ability to recharge and refresh is at a premium.

And while there are plenty of “Stress Relief Tips for Tax Season” on the internet, are any of them giving you any ideas you hadn’t already thought of?

That’s what separates SCACPA’s Tax Season Stress Relief Tips from the rest. We’ve taken the usual stress relief tips but framed them as a series of Do’s and Don’ts, so everyone knows where to draw the line.

And just so we don’t stress you out with too many suggestions at once, SCACPA will be dropping three new suggestions each week for the next month. Have any Tax Time Stress Relief Do’s and Dont’s tips you’d like to see added to the list? Send them to SCACPA Content Strategist Gregory Hardy at

So if you’re a CPA reading this during tax season, take a deep breath, relax, see if this advice could be useful for any colleagues you know … and then get back to work!

DO take a brisk walk around your office building to get fresh air … but DON’T get lost in the forest.

DO get a chair massage by hiring professionals to come in … but DON’T expense to your client that you bought a robot masseuse.

DO loosen up with team stretching exercises … but DON’T start an office MMA tournament.
