National Tax Day

National Tax Day

National Tax Day refers to the day when individual tax returns are due to the Federal Government. Normally National Tax Day occurs on April 15 but this year it has been changed to April 18.

There are many reasons for this change – April 15 falls on a Saturday and Emancipation Day is on Monday April 17 which is observed in Washington, DC honoring President Abraham Lincoln signing the bill that ended slavery.

National Tax Day was first implemented throughout the United States in 1861 in order to help fund the Civil War through the Revenue Act. In 1913, income tax was added to the 16th Amendment and ever since then Americans have been filing taxes every April.

National Titanic Remembrance Day

National Titanic Remembrance Day

Each year we remember the RMS Titanic that sank in the Atlantic Ocean in April 1912 which was traveling from England to New York City. There were 2,228 passengers onboard the ship when the ship set sail on April 12, 1912. More than 1,500  lives were lost when the claimed “unsinkable ship” struck an iceberg around 11:40 PM on April 14, 1912. Lives were lost because there were simply not enough lifeboats to support all the passengers.

There are many stories from the 705 survivors and the most memorable of these stories was recreated into a movie which most of us know by the title, Titanic, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
