Happy Tax Day!
Today is the last day to get your federal income taxes done, in the envelope, and mailed off to the IRS (unless, of course, you’re filing electronically or have an extension).
If you haven’t already done so: GET THEM DONE NOW! (or the IRS goon squad will come and make your life most unpleasant).
Interesting little income tax nuggets of information:
- The income the average American makes from January 1 to April 26 (for 2006) is the amount of tax they pay (so April 26 is the day you start to earn money for yourself). If you have a state income tax, you get, on average, another 36 days until you pay it off. This day is known as Tax Freedom Day.
- Vice President, Dick Cheney got a 1.9 million dollar refund this year.
- In 1913, the 16th Amendment to the Constitution made the income tax a permanent fixture in the U.S. tax system.
- The average IRS Auditor has the same sense of humor as a paving stone.
Ok… I made that last fact up… please don’t audit me! 🙂
