CPA Accountant, When is Bean Counter Day

Do you see the guy at his desk with the green visor!? He’s pounding away at his desktop calculator. While he’s working hard, he knows it’s his special day. It’s his special day. Today is National Bean Counter Day, an April 16 holiday. This is the day after taxes are due. Your financial team is worn out and needs a little time off.

Today is a day for profitable assets, without the presence of liabilities. For financial types, it is a day of rest, relaxation, and celebration. All too soon, the 17th will arrive, and your faithful bean counter will be once again hard at work, doing the daily and monthly accounting tasks, filing amended returns, and quarterly fillings. You see, your accounting staff works hard for you every day of the year.  

Give your bean counter a little TLC. Let him or her have a vacation day and enjoy the day off. Let your follow-up calls and questions wait until tomorrow.

If you are a bean counter, take the day off. Kick back and relax. Treat yourself and your family to a nice dinner out. Or, celebrate this day in any way you prefer, as it is your day. And, rest assured no one will audit your activities today.

“Never call and accountant a credit to his profession. A good accountant is a debit to his profession.” – – Charles Lyell

History and Origin of National Bean Counter Day

This special holiday was created by Kevin Werig, a CPA from Trumbull, CT. Werig created this event, to recognize the hard work of CPAs and accountants, and to assure there is a day off work for accountants, immediately after the tax deadline has passed.

This holiday event is referred to as a “National” day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.
