‘Tis the season to be collectively gouged by the government for a significant portion of our hard-earned income.

In order to offer a meager morale booster in this financially gloomy month, we have put together, for your enjoyment, a collection of strange, entertaining and little-known facts surrounding April 15th.

Pretty cool. That kidnapping this is sad though. It’s a shame to be reminded of that every time you do your taxes, let alone derive some financial gain from claiming a kidnapped child.

I’d question “one hundred twenty” stat though. So lets say a person works 50 weeks at 5 days a week, including holidays, that’s 250 days a year, and so a person works 120 of 250 days a year to pay their tax liabilities, that’s about half, which doesn’t seem accurate. Right?

Oh and are the last numbers adjusted for inflation or not? Seems like they should be.
