Be Careful on April 17th

Tax day  is not only a day that is dangerous to your car, it may be dangerous to your health. And we are not talking about eating the 2nd free big mac that McDonalds is giving out. According to a study by the University of Toronto, the rate of fatal car crashes increases on tax day. There are 13 more fatal car crashes on that day than any other day. This is a six percent increase over the average day.

Researchers Donald Redelmeier and Christopher Yarnell theorize that it might be a combination of factors leading to the increase. Those might be rushing to the post office or lack of sleep from completing the 1040.

Save yourself and your sanity. A good accountant can do all the heavy lifting for you. They will prepare your return, file it, and even have the refund deposited directly into your account.
