It is good to get back to not only blogging but also reading other blogs. I missed my daily dose of Kay, Kelly, Trish, Bruce, Jim, Joe, Pete, et al.
* Peter Pappas provides some good advice for the self-employed in “Famous Last Words From the Self-Employed Taxpayer With IRS Problems” at THE TAX LAWYER’S BLOG.
* Roni Deutch, whose book I still have to read, gives us some "Tax Tips for Job Hunters", of which there are currently a lot more than usual (hunters, not tips), at her TAX LADY blog.
* I’m on board with Kirk Walsh. “I Don’t Get the Tea Parties” either – the tax day protest by conservatives. I am not a fan of TARP and the bail-out passed under GWB – but it was passed under GWB and is not the fault of the current administration.
Yellow Rose of Taxes Kay also offers some opinions on the tea party cafones in her post “Taking On the Tax Tea Partiers” at DON’T MESS WITH TAXES.
* Linda Beale of A TAXING MATTER brings us the “IRS "Dirty Dozen" List of Tax Scams: Don't Do Them, Dear Reader”.
* It appears that TAX FREEDOM DAY 2009 (April 13th) occurred before TAX DAY 2009 (April 15th), the Tax Foundation reports in “America Celebrates Tax Freedom Day”. Unfortunately I was too busy to stop and celebrate this year.
New Jersey’s TAX FREEDOM DAY will be April 29th – more than 2 weeks after the national day. NJ is #2 (appropriate) on the list of most taxed states – behind Connecticut, whose TAX FREEDOM DAY is April 30th. New York is not far behind – at #3 with TFD on April 27th.
Residents of Alaska pay the least tax – with the earliest TAX FREEDOM DAY of the 50 states on March 23rd.
