Who have already done them tomorrow is the deadline to sort clear yup normally it's April 15. That was yesterday it was a Sunday. Today is emancipation day a holiday in Washington DC's of the irises were. So tomorrow. By midnight is the deadline. And here's the thing. If your doing a deal fashion when you're gonna mail it. There aren't any post offices open till midnight and no. They don't do and I'm in Colorado on the street like they used to grabbing your return from the air and post marking it before midnight. Yeah I used to be welcomed at 1159. There was someone there to take a return postmarked and we'd always talk to people on the line you know as they pulled up by real attention history preakness so many people file on line now. As with the push of the button that you don't. They don't need all those people bid to work at the post office is people don't show up anyway but here's the problem. Sometimes you run into a last second unexpected. Problem with your taxes. And suddenly your side tax software is telling you you can't file electronically. Like someone else's dirty claimed your dependent aren't on anonymous somebody on design houses are used your Social Security number and I'll attack I don't want to know that's happened to me a couple of time I'll Judith victim of fraud a dozen. He didn't have any impact on me other than. I couldn't file electronically I had to mail my taxes then. And if that happens after 6 PM on. Tax deadline day you manned up in a world are looking for a post office. And banging on the back door of the most of his a look at some sorting guy to come to the door and take it both candidates all ma'am that is still hurts to know that somebody defrauded did you net twice and someone used. My wife's a security number once as a dependent ones to file their taxes now. And apparently that's the thing people just randomly select Social Security numbers. And file to get. Money and it takes a long time for the IRS to sort all that I actually laughed out loud I just read this Texan made 7871. Person takes to make screw taxes. Our gang one person very proud of themselves. My taxes are filed the last week of Jan accounted for. The thing I've rented or got him some money back everything. However that is why wait so long to file do as soon as you get your W two forms never understand why fake folks wait so long well. According to offers dot com 53% of Louisiana it'll wait till the day or tomorrow are now to do their taxes the person gloating about how they just don't understand why Everglades. Because it's so fine. That's why you wait. A stiff fine. And it's it is in the cards to pay so if you got to pay I understand that's why you wait. And it's no fun so you don't wanna spend in our Texas Tech about. I don't know total cumulative time oh probably about 30 yeah. I mean and as a painful and it is going to file after file after file on finding receipts and I don't mind then isn't finding that and in ages it's it's a process. I am looking so much forward to and hoping so much. The promises of 90% of Americans get in a file on postcards. Ties you were returned an easier I'm reminded of my exactly. That debtor country just sign it and that's it they're double laying the standard deduction next year which means for most people there's no reason to do all that paperwork now. Because you'll get more just taking the new twice as large standard deduction you'll have to go through all. So I'm hoping. That that is the case but for those of you who are. In that 53% reading them today and tomorrow I feel your pain I get it I'm not gloating that I did mine and I. I am technically in the 47 percentage out of your four legged mine over the week since that.
