TAX Day – Ugh!!
I recently read where we were working Jan. 1 through June 30th of each year, just to pay all of our taxes. In Canada, add another month or two. After that, you keep all you make. Prior to that, 100% goes to the government in some form or fashion to pay for some kind of government worker, work program, social program, defense, project, health care, common good, common bad, etc. Whatever you want to call it, April 18th is TAX day; the deadline for filing your federal income taxes in the U.S.A. Canucks have to file by April 30th. Why April?
After the 16th Amendment was passed (giving Congress the power to lay and collect taxes on incomes) the first tax day was approximately one year after the 16th Amendment was enacted, March 1, 1914. Eventually it got pushed to April to give IRS employees more time to complete the workload. Some speculate it was done so the government could hold on to refunds longer, allowing it to earn more interest for them.
While I sit here typing this, St. Jude has a full house of kids fighting for their lives. For them and their parents taxes are not “top of mind”, health is. Living is. Surviving is. As you may have heard, St. Jude is front and center in the fight against nasty diseases that destroy or cut short the lives of children. We are thankful to have such a wonderful facility, doing such great work to help heal and save young people.
So even though we are trying to figure out how much we owe the Uncle Sam, many are simply hoping they can be here to actually pay taxes. This is why we here at David Delgado Realty Group have resolved to do what we can to help.
For every house we sell this year, we are donating a portion of our income to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Our goal, again, is to raise $10,000 to help them in their quest to Heal, Save, Cure and Comfort Children under their care.
This is where we need your help…
For every referral that leads to a sale or purchase of a home, Delgado Realty Group will donate a portion of our income to help St. Jude continue their quest to provide the best treatment to children under their care.
Either way, your referrals are in good hands and help us contribute to a good cause.
