What is your Tax Day message to the government?

Wednesday, April 15, 2009 - 06:23 AM



If there was a comment box on the bottom of your 1040 form this year, what would you say? Whether it's "I took this deduction because I deserve it!" or "I did everything right because I'm terrified of being audited," we want to hear it. Tell us your 1040 tweaks.
Greg from Boston  "I am so pleased and happy to be sending in my taxes..." (4/15/2009)

Steve from Orlando, FL  "...taxes are an insurance policy." (4/15/2009)

  "The whole solution would lie...in our ability to choose where the money goes." (4/15/2009)

I pay taxes with some pride and satisfaction -- even gratitude to be an American. Don't let me down by letting the cheats and wiseguys chisel their way out of paying their fair share.

I would tell the US Government that I don't think they are supportive enough or honest enough with citizens who are serving our country in the military. When my husband joined the Army Reserves he was promised $50,000 toward his student loan debt. They failed to mention that the amount would really be more like $40,000 after TAXES are taken out! We got a nasty surprise at tax time when the extra W2 showed up from the military & we discovered that we owed WAY more than what we had anticipated!
