A Taxing Reminder

It has been half a month since Tax Day, and, while many of us would like to forget about this matter, I wanted to re-post here some good material relating to this not-so-good occasion.

“Republicans believe every day is the 4th of July,
but the Democrats believe every day is April 15.”

—- Ronald Wilson Reagan
