Unexpectedly Intriguing!
April 15, 2016

April 15th. The most dreaded day of the year in the United States because this is the day when federal income tax returns must either be filed or extensions for filing income tax returns must be requested.

Worse, because income taxes have only become more complex over time, U.S. income taxes have become more time consuming and more costly.

It wasn't always that way. The original IRS Income Tax Form 1040 could fit on just one sheet of paper. And to prove it, here's our tool that you can use to calculate your income taxes as if it were 1913 all over again! Just enter the indicated data in the non-shaded rows, and we'll do the math:

But wait, that's not all!

If you're interested in featuring this tool on your site, you are welcome to do so - we've made the code easy to embed within your HTML text, and provided that you link back to this post (http://politicalcalculations.com/2016/04/happy-us-income-tax-day.html), we grant you permission to do so!
