My accountant says...

Did you wonder, much less care, why tax day in 2012 was on April 17th?  It's because the District of Columbia (DC), is the only place in the nation that celebrates Emancipation Day, April 16, and that makes it a federal holiday. So I had my visit with my tax professional on the 16th, the day before taxes were due.  I just needed to be sure that with the extension  I would be paid up with checks in the mail on the 17th.  We have a lot of deep discussions when we meet.  I asked him if he was exhausted, and he said, surprisingly no.  It went very well this year, he noted. Every tax professional I've known takes a trip for about two weeks after t-time.  Are you going to take a trip now that the rush is over?  Well, yes, he said.  He and his wife are going over to the coast.  He's going to get a dog.  A German Shepherd puppy.  Aahh,  I said. He's wanted one all his life and now he's going to get one.  Are you going to get a rescue dog?  How about a pure-bred?  No
