I hate to be a party pooper but but Tax Day is April 18th this year.....

Because Friday, April 15, is Emancipation Day, a holiday observed in the District of Columbia. By law, says the Internal Revenue Service, official District of Columbia holidays have the same effect on tax deadlines as do regular federal holidays.
That means tax day 2011 gets pushed back to the next business day, which is Monday, April 18.

it's still tax day even if the filing deadline is extended until the next business day. in 1955 the official filing deadline was changed to April 15, unless that falls on a weekend or holiday, but i've always been under the impression that the colloquial term "tax day" refers to April 15th, whether the filing deadline is that day or not.

I love tax day. I don't cry and whine about the taxes I pay. I consider it a privilege to pay my taxes as a citizen of the USA. I enjoy paying my taxes to keep this a first world country. It certainly is not an onerous burden.

It's sad the richest among us US citizens, the folks that have reaped the rewards of living in the US, try to hide from paying their taxes. They want everybody else to pay, but not them.

Oh, there's plenty of wasteful spending. Trouble is, how do you get these politicians to make cuts in their own yard?

There's been plenty of proposals to make a 10% cut across the board, but someone on some committee always shuts it down.

thats my issue, if they got rid of wasteful ridiculous spending, tax burden on people that dont have money drops considerably. it will never happen though, give someone power and money to spend and they become blind to the real consequences.

That's Laughable. People who don't have money don't pay taxes. They don't have money.

Hey, people have to pay their taxes, that's what makes us a first world country. It's pretty clear the line between first world countries and second or third world countries.

A first world country, people pay their taxes for the common good. If they don't want to pay their taxes they get prosecuted or they can move to a third world country.

Interesting clip. There's enough conflict and plenty of drama to make a good movie. I figure (and hope) they'll leave out the 100-page philosophy monologues. The real question will be if the screenwriters can bring enough depth to characters who are, essentially, cardboard cutouts in a heavy-handed morality play.

Seeing Armin Shimerman cast as one of the federal regulators doesn't look promising. Looks to me like the script may go too far into stereotype and caricature, and that will sink whatever story they've distilled from the 1000-page book.

I'll give it a chance because I actually like the book enough to read it again every few years, but I'm already wary of this thing collapsing under its own weight just like the Taggart railroad bridge.

It's amazing anyone could be happy that you get taxed on everything. It's amazing how much of our money goes to tax, insurance, fee's, fines, service charges. You earn money you pay tax, you spend money you pay tax, its a double **** places like calif with 10 sales tax.

its true some rich people cheat on taxes, but even still they paid more then we ever will. It's more about so many people paying nothing. The slackers like me need to get going!

The rich should pay a higher % of their income to taxes. This is the USA, not Mexico. If a family earns $10 million, they should pay say $6-8 million in taxes. They still have $2-4 million after tax and the luxury of living in the USA, and the luxury of living in the USA is hard to quantify.

The bums among us also pay taxes to subsidize the rich people's excellent quality of living in the USA, the first world country. Fresh water, sewage disposal, good roads, etc, doesn't just magically appear because some millionaire pays taxes.
