COLLEGE PARK, Maryland — There’s a day in mid-April many Americans dread. It’s a day that forces them to deal with their finances.
That day is today. It’s tax day.

There are currently (no joke) 20 statues of liberty out front of my work harassing people to do their taxes. Legit standing in the road. 😳😣

@jonk I was supposed to do my taxes today. Instead I loaded the dishwasher.

It’s hard to blame taxpayers for their procrastination. Taxes. Are. Confusing.
I don’t know anything about taxes but I’ll sing you all of Lady Marmalade

Fiscal year. W-2. Tax liability. Taxes come with a lengthy vocabulary list.
Someday soon I’ll meet the right SPOUSE, and I’ll be her HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD and together we’ll make the cutest little DEPENDENT. #Taxes

Let’s use the ice cream analogy.
Teaching my son about #taxday by buying him ice cream, eating 38% of it, then providing public goods unavailable from the private sector.

if you wanna teach your future children about taxes, simply eat 30% of their icecream cone…💸🍦

Ice cream aside, tax day is the annual deadline for Americans to report their income from the previous year to the Internal Revenue Service, or IRS.
.@jk_rowling My fiancé and I were wondering- do wizards pay taxes?

Some owe money to the government.
@keder nonsense. Complaining about taxes is every American’s birthright. It’s in the constitution. Look it up.

But if the amount of taxes owed is less than the taxes an individual’s employer has already taken out of that employee’s paycheck, they get a refund…

…which can lead to some gratuitous spending.
Should I be responsible when I receive my tax return or completely reckless? I’m thinking I should fly somewhere!

Twitter gives taxpayers a place to talk tax day confusion, struggles and triumphs. For that, we’re grateful.
I’m really bored so I might get drunk and do taxes. #Adulthood

If the government finds me old enough to take my money for taxes and child support than surely I’m old enough for this ciroc

How many times can I tell people I have to do my taxes before they realize I just don’t want to hang out
