How do tax businesses (Jackson Hewitt, H&R Block, etc.) stay in business after April 15?
If tax returns end at that time, what do they do? Do they shut down their shops-- which I doubt? Are the employees just sent somewhere else? I just don't know what happens, afterward, that gives them enough income to afford paying for tax-people. I apologize, for I am very unknowing of anything tax-related.

Those firms also supplement their staffs with part time staff during the crunch time, so those people only work and get paid for say 4 months out of the year for that company.

I work for H&R Block. We do taxes all year long. Some people put them off. The deadline for extensions is Oct. We also handle ITIN's, business taxes, and audits. We also do bookkeeping and notary services.

Some Tax offices shut down, but premium offices stay open for year round service. Believe it or not, people file their taxes after April 17th. They get extensions..

Jackson Hewitt shuts down all offices/kiosks at the end of the season except the main branch offices. Mostly they expect to make enough during tax season to carry their expenses for the other 8 months of the year.
