What are employers doing about employees who do their taxes — at work!?!

Today is tax day, or, as I like to call it, sonofa—!

Actually, I get a nice refund this year. I guess that’s what happens when you have four kids under five. Which reminds me, I should ask, do any of you babysit? Because I have Verizon Fios and a jar of Marshmallow Fluff to sweeten the offer.

What? Where was I?

Oh yes, did you know that 30% of workers say that it is common to use company resources like the copier or printer to complete their personal income tax paperwork — which they prepare during business hours.

That’s from a survey quoted in this article from Jeff Blumenthal at Philadelphia Business Journal.

So what can employers do about this?

Wait, you’re still here? I’ll give you a hint. Go read Jeff’s article.
