Dave Turns April 15th From “Tax Day” To “National Procrastinator’s Day”

As Americans, April 15th has been embedded in our minds as the dreaded "Tax Day", where everybody who owes the I.R.S. had better pay up, or else!

Dave Chooses to Look at Paying Taxes as a Good Thing

For several years now, I've found reasons to use a motto loosely borrowed from comedian Bill Hicks.

How To File an Extension For Your 2010 Taxes

Because of Emancipation Day, a little known Washington D.C. holiday that this year is being celebrated on April 15, US taxpayers had until April 18 to file their taxes.
