Tax Day is officially just around the corner, and it's... well, it's definitely not the best time of the year for most of us. While Tax Day typically falls on Apr. 15, this year, it's a little different. Since Apr. 15 falls on a weekend in 2018 (a Sunday, actually), and because Mar. 16 is a government holiday, your taxes will be due on Tuesday, Apr. 17, 2018. Great! An extra two days! That hardly makes Tax Day any easier, though, to be totally honest. If you can relate to that feeling of overwhelming panic when it comes to getting your taxes done, then you will definitely also relate to the below Tax Day memes and tweets, which are honestly very on point.
This is actually a perfect way to procrastinate doing your taxes if you haven't finished them just yet, although of course, I can't really encourage that... but, you know, if you need a break, you can read this. They'll make you feel less alone as you stress out about how you're possibly going to get your taxes done on time when you have literally no idea what you're doing. They'll also make you laugh during a weekend that just might be full of anxiety and the feeling that you're completely failing at adulthood. Hey, at least you aren't the only one, right?
Even if you have done your taxes, you might be stressing out about the fact that you owe the government a lot of money! It doesn't seem fair, but it happens to the best of us, and it's enough to make you want to scream... very loudly. Instead of getting angry, try laughing at these tax memes. They won't give you your money back, but they will make you feel like there are others in your boat too.
Whatever the case, good luck getting everything done before Apr. 17. You've got this!
