Tax Day Can Be Annoying

Tax Day Can Be Annoying

Posted: Updated:

At places like H&R Block you'll see people like Livia Pipkins. 

 

 "I was just in a rush and I'm a procrastinator so, that's why," says Pipkins.   Last minute tax filers around but there aren't a lot of them.

 

 "It really kind of depends but it's pretty steady the whole season long," says H&R Block manager Charlette Nettles.  There were a handful of procrastinators at H&R, by half the places I visited this afternoon were empty.  The rush to get done by April 15th is fairly old fashioned especially with a lot of people filing online.  While I can't find a lot of people to talk about filing on the last day there are a lot of people not happy about filing at all. 

 

 "They confiscate our wealth to do things we don't approve of so we're taxed enough already," says Pete Riehm with the Common Sense Campaign.  They held their annual rally today in Mobile.  While today's turnout wasn't their biggest 2013 is a special date.  100 years ago the federal government began collecting income taxes. 

 

"We're beginning to have taxation without representation, without representing our values," says Janet Oglesby with the Common Sense Campaign.
