April 15th has always been a special, joyous day for my family. It marks the end of tax season! And NO one is happier to see this date on the calendar than my hard-working CPA dad, who logs 7 work days/week, 80+ hrs/wk the first 105 (or so) days of the year...
With this year being a leap year, April 15th being a Sunday, and Monday the 16th some bogus DC holiday when the post office is closed... today marks the official end of what could be the longest. tax. season. EVER.
So, Dad, welcome back to the land of the living. Congrats on another tax season down and moving a little closer to retirement. Our little tax deduction can't wait to see you again soon (very, very soon). Now, read these funny tax quotes and then go take a nap! Daughter's orders!
