Yep, due to the weekend date of April 15 and yesterday’s Patriots Day in Massachusetts, today is actually the day your federal and state taxes are due. Many people complain about paying their taxes but I hold to the principle played out by Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. His famous quote is “Taxes are the price we pay for a civilized society.” I do not go out of my way to pay more but I do want roads repaired and my food inspected. There is a reason we have government. We must always watch to make sure government is efficient and serves our society. And I wish corporations and the rich would pay a greater share. But taxes are here to serve us and we need to remember that.
