Came across these Bible verses this morning that relate to the whole April 15th tax day, which is April 17 this year because the 15th was Saturday.
This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God's servants, who give their full time to governing. Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor. --Romans 13:6-7
Don't knowingly cheat or withhold information. You'll sleep a whole lot better at night knowing you did the right (if difficult) thing.
Are you putting taxes off to the last minute, or are they long since done? I did mine about two weeks ago, but haven't got my refund (such as it is) yet. Two weeks is close enough to "last minute" for my liking. I could never put it off until the real last minute.
Why do people do that anyway? Especially when that day falls just after Holy Week, on the day after Easter Sunday?!? I sure didn't want taxes hanging over my head at the time of year when I am trying to observe the most holy time on the Christian calendar. It would keep me from truly enjoying it.
Did you see the story about illegal immigrants paying taxes?
Anyway, if you haven't done your taxes yet, keep the above verses in mind when you do. Now get to it!
