Taxes are Due One Week from Today!

According to this site, April 15 "is the day where tax returns are due to the federal and state governments from U.S. citizens, resident aliens, etc. It has been Tax Day since 1955. The tax system in the U.S. can be quite complex so Pulse2 decided to compile a list of infographics that shows some interesting facts about it. There is also one infographic in here from The Onion about celebrity tax deductions.
