2019 Tax Deadlines

March 20, 2019
Share |

The end of tax season is around the corner.

This year, tax filing deadline is April 15th. So get your appointments with CPAs, Online Tax Advisors, or brave the new forms yourself!

For this year’s little known tax fact – according to the Tax Foundation, last year total federal, state and local tax revenues combined to be roughly $5.2 Trillion (or 30% of the nation’s income). Another way to look at $5.2 Trillion is $5,200,000,000,000 – that’s a lot of zeros. That is more than the combined cost of food, clothing, and housing in the USA last year (check out the chart below). Breathe that in…

Feel free to write your congressman.
