Oh how he loves tax season (sadly I am not being sarcastic), it makes him giddy - no really it does, there is no other word for it!
"A culmination of a year's worth of numbers coming together in so many forms - balance sheets, income statements, accrual vs. cash, 1099's, w-2's, cash flows, oh my - and then they all NEED to be analyzed, re-analyzed, over analyzed and then there is the over analyzation of the over analyzation!"
