To be honest the American gripe against Tax Day in April probably centers more around American sloth than anything else. Most Americans have all of their tax information collected by the beginning of February and all that they have to do is file their tax returns. Many Americans even have money being refunded back to them as part of the tax return and the sooner they file their taxes the sooner they will get their refund checks. But yet many Americans push right up to that April 15th deadline and now many post offices all over the country are open until midnight on April 15th because that is the absolute last minute that you have to get your taxes in on time. It is a quandary as to why Americans wait until April 15th to file their taxes when they have two months to get them done but yet they wait and then curse the day when it arrives. By the way, if April 15th happens to fall on a Saturday or Sunday then the IRS will usually move tax day back a day or to so that it falls on the next Monday but even that cannot make people happy. Everyone hates paying taxes but Americans make it seem like a real bother when they have to file their returns on time so that the government can send them a refund check back. The attitude is incredibly confusing and causes quite a spectacle for the world to see every Tax Day in April.
To combat the Tax Day in April blues all Americans should follow this easy solution. File your taxes in March. It may seem too simple to work, and it may also seem too obvious to make sense, but if you file your taxes a month early then you are done with them and you can just sit back and wait for your refund check. On the flip side, if you are going to owe money then you have a month to come up with the money you owe rather than finding out on Tax Day in April that you owe money and have no way of getting it on time. Filing early makes all the sense in the world and every American should try it. Maybe if every American tried filing their taxes in March then there would be no reason to dread Tax Day in April and then every American would be able to enjoy the beautiful onset of Spring as opposed to dreading the last possible day they can pay their taxes.
