IRS Blows Huge Irony Opportunity

This year’s tax deadline has been extended by three days:

The Internal Revenue Service kicked off the U.S. tax filing season, announcing on Tuesday that taxpayers will have until April 18, 2011 to file their 2010 returns and pay their tax bills because of a holiday on April 15.

What (DC) holiday is on Friday, April 15th? Emancipation Day.

I wish they’d have kept the original deadline — I could have used the material.
