Don’t tell ME the IRS aren’t generous-hearted folks
Here’s one small benefit of the freak winter nor’easter that started our week:
You now have an extra week to file your taxes. As do all residents of Northeastern states hit by the storm.

Of course, then you’ll miss all the televised fun of experiencing the tax-night line at 30th Street PO, but I guess (this being one day past the original deadline and all) we’ve already missed that…..
