Great, the CPA, after working long hours and meeting last night's tax deadline, has to be in line in NYC by 10:00 AM for a 7:30 PM performance. They aren't going to get many CPAs who prepare taxes or have anything better to do than stand around all day. Now, free t-shirts -- that's different.

Only a small percentage of CPAs specialize in tax. An even smaller percentage specialize in the area of 1040s. It doesn't make sense that they would associate CPAs with April 15. Most 1040s are prepared by enrolled agents at best, and more sophisticated returns are extended anyway.
