Introduction to Tax Day

Every year, millions of people mark their calendars for a day of numbers, deductions, and paperwork—Tax Day. Typically arriving in the middle of April, Tax Day is the deadline for individuals in the United States to submit their federal income tax returns to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). While it might not be associated with festivities like other holidays, it's a significant day that affects nearly every working person. The sentiment surrounding Tax Day can range from relief for those expecting a return, to stress for those who owe taxes or are rushing to meet the deadline. Yet whatever the emotion, it remains an important civic moment in American life, prompting reflection on the role of taxes in society and the services they help to provide.
