If you’re like most people, tax season is not your favorite time of year. It can be stressful, frustrating and costly! Software packages can make the process easier, but if you’re not a numbers person, you can easily make a mistake and end up either paying too much tax or getting a smaller refund than you should.
Professional accountants can get stressed this time of year as well, with clients who hand them shoeboxes full of receipts that they must now go through and organize. This can take hours, and while they get paid for it, can be a frustrating process.
So is there an answer to the stress and frustration of tax season? Yes – cookies! The Black and White Cookie Company can help ease your anxiety about the crazy world of taxes.
About Black and White cookies
The Black and White Cookie Company offers an array of handcrafted cookies, with a fresh cake-like texture and just a hint of lemon. Then they are iced with a mouth-watering mix of chocolate and vanilla fondant. These have been New York’s favorite cookie for more than a century. If you don’t live in the Brooklyn area, you can order cookies online to experience the superior taste they offer.
Whether you’re just gathering your tax records together to give to your accountant, or you are doing them yourself, the process can be extremely stressful. Not only can it be difficult to find the time to do it all, but all those numbers can make even a mathematician want to go screaming from the room. When these moments threaten to overtake you, sit back, grab a cup of tea (or something stronger) and sink your teeth into one of the best-tasting cookies in the world. When you order cookies by the dozen, you can keep them on hand for the entire tax season.
Give to your accountant
If you’re one of those people who hands their accountant a shoe box filled with miscellaneous receipts W-2s, and investment receipts, then you might need to give them a cookie or two so they can handle their own stress levels when doing your taxes! Think of it as a peace offering. These New York cookies are a great way to say, “I appreciate all you do for me.” Just be prepared to do the same thing again next year!
Give to yourself as a reward
When you buy traditional cookies online, you can order as many or as little as you like. They come nicely packaged and fresh, so you can enjoy them anytime. Give yourself these treats as a reward for getting your taxes done. Tell yourself that you can’t have any until you’ve completed the process. Whether that means giving your records to your accountant or doing it yourself, you’ll have the motivation you need to get things done.
These black and white cookies may not be able to give you a bigger refund or organize your receipts for you, but they can give you the break and stress-relief you need during this ‘taxing’ season.
