Tax Day isn't the best day of the year, the say the least. In the weeks leading up to the big day (usually on Apr. 15, unless that day falls on a weekend — for instance, in 2018, the day is on Apr. 17 instead), many of us are super stressed trying to get our taxes filed and wondering why adulting never seems to get any easier. And then, once we've filed, we either have a refund to look forward to, or a deficit to dread. Because there are so many different feelings that get stirred up during tax season, it's no surprise that there are some pretty funny quotes about taxes from some pretty inspiring people who know a lot about money. To get in the spirit of the season, you'll want to collect some funny Tax Day Instagram captions to post on Apr. 17 this year, because a great way to get through it, is to share your struggles or strides on social media.
Whether you're Instagramming your tax refund shopping spree plans or your ramen noodle dinner because you owe money, your friends and followers are going to be super appreciative for the #relatable content. Here, I've put together a list of some of my favorite quotes that will give you the words you need to express your financial woes, worries, and wishes.
