April 15th

If you make any money, the government shoves you in the creek once a year with it in your pockets, and all that doesn't get wet, you can keep. - Will Rogers

The taxpayer - that's someone who works for the federal government but doesn't have to take a civil service examination. - Ronald Reagan

Why does a slight tax increase cost you two hundred dollars and a substantial tax cut saves you thirty cents? - Peg Bracken

If the Lord loveth a cheerful giver, how He must hate the taxpayer! - John Andrew Holmes

People who complain about taxes can be divided into two classes: men and women. - Anonymous

On a lighter note:

The first McDonald's opened on this day in 1955. A hamburger cost 15 cents!

Gotta love tax day! Ours have been filed for months now. It's all sitting in our savings account right now as we speak.

15 cents for a hamburger? That's crazy.

Heeheehee! We got our taxes done in March, and were happy with our Fed refund. However...last week, our heating/AC system went on the fritz, and the resulting bill guessed it...almost exactly equal to the Fed refund. *sigh* I guess I'm glad we had the $$, but it's annoying. Ah well, it's over now for another while.
