Even though it is only mid-February, tax time is fast approaching! Tax Day 2016 is Monday, April 18th. Let Emerald Island Casino help you ease the stress!
The payment of taxes in America has always been controversial. From colonial protests against British taxation which ultimately led to the Revolutionary War, to the imposition of income tax in the 19th Century, to the ratification of the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1913, the amount and types of taxes we pay as U.S. citizens has always been hotly debated.
The tax code and related materials are very complicated. Ironically, experts can’t even agree how long the tax code is! Some say it is over 70,000 pages. Others say it is “only” 2,500 pages…give or take. By the time you include the actual statutes (Title 26 of the U.S. Code), IRS Regulations, rulings and case law, it is estimated that the written materials that make up U.S. tax law are far, far longer than all of the books of the Bible, War and Peace and the entire Harry Potter series combined! Most law libraries have entire sections dedicated to Taxation.
It is little wonder, then, that preparing tax returns can be nerve racking!
