17 Funny Tax Day Instagram Captions That Will Make Everything Feel Less Scary

Let's face it: Tax Day is a scary concept. Just the mere mention of it can raise the hair on your arms. Tax Day commonly refers to the day that your individual income taxes are due to the federal government. Although it is typically held on April 15, this year's exception will fall on April 17, 2018, but as per usual, will include a ton of combing through receipts, coughing up money for Turbo tax, and crying on the phone to your mom.

But once that envelope is sealed, and you can tuck that last W4 into your designated tax folder and permanently lock it up in your file cabinet, it's time to break out the bubbly and post it on the 'gram, complete with a hilarious caption, of course.

This is my first year filing my own taxes, and I have already messed up several times. I lost one of my W2s, can't distinguish between any of my Uber receipts from the past year, don't seem to recall signing up for health insurance with my previous employer... and the list goes on. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel: when this is all over, you won't have to stress about it again for a whole year — at least if you're a procrastinator, like me.
