This is the final weekend to work on your income taxes. April 17th is the deadline this year because the 15th falls on a Sunday and the 16th is a District holiday in Washington.
We filed our taxes earlier this week. We finally got the right paperwork from MegaCorp – whose bureaucracy still operates as it did in the 1990s.
The cost of running the government didn’t appear on the chart in this POST that looks at 75 years of consumer spending in the USA. Housing, food, & clothing are three of the TOP 4 categories though.
That’s why I was surprised to see this chart that shows that Federal, State, and Local taxes far overshadow all three of those life necessities COMBINED. Yikes – that’s a lot of taxes! Shocking, isn’t it?
Do you have your taxes filed yet?
