Top 10 Talking About Taxes

1. Tax Deadline 2012 is TODAY Tuesday April 17th due to the 15th falling on a Sunday.  Hallelujah!! 


2. I've watched the news and all those folks that pay their taxes at the very last minute.  Must be postmarked by midnight, right? Or you could e-file, it is received instantly. Why do they wait?

3. Nobody likes to pay the piper, the rich, the poor but there is a reason for it.

4. I found two websites that are interesting whatwepayfor.com is one.

5. The Center for Budget and Policy Priorities great article "Misconceptions and Realities About Who Pays Taxes".

6. You can also obtain a receipt for taxes paid at whitehouse.gov

7. Do you have to pay this year? Maybe you should check on those deductions and make adjustments.  Some people like to have less taken out and pay at the end.

8. Or are you getting a windfall return? Will you spend it wisely?  Paying down your debt if you have it is a good place to start, just saying.

9. Is it true the rich get richer by paying less taxes? Eventually every one has to pay someone.

10. Do you still have to file your taxes?  You have till midnight.  Stop procrastinating get to it and may the force be with you to get moving a little bit sooner next year.

  1. People wait till the last minute on principle. I used to actually drive town to the 30th St. Post Office years ago to mail my tax form because there was always something going on down there on "tax day". There were protests, people dressed up in various "patriotic" costumes and such. It was fun.

    Thanks for the links to the two sites - they are good. I will bookmark them for future reference. You know how I love politics. :)
