You Are Emancipated for Three Days

“The usual April 15th [tax] deadline is extended 'til Monday, the 18th this year.

The IRS is observing a little known Washington, DC holiday called Emancipation Day.”

How ironic. "Emancipation Day," celebrating the end of chattel slavery for Africans, delays Tax Slavery Day for all of us. The tax collectors are so moved by the significance of this day that they have chosen to show us tax serfs uncharacteristic mercy. How noble of them. Be sure to show them your appreciation by paying your Fair Share!
