All you who collect taxes – this is your chance to get up from your desk and follow Him. However I do not know if leaving “everything” can be deducted as a loss of income for 2017. You might be able to itemize it over a 5 year period with an adjustment for inflation – please see a specialist.

After this, Jesus went out and saw a tax collector by the name of Levi sitting at his tax booth. “Follow me,” Jesus said to him, and Levi got up, left everything and followed him.   (Luke 5:27-28)

Bonus: Some “immediately” quit the family business – leaving dad in the lurch. Such, sometimes, is the way of loving God. Again, I do not know if dad will be able to deduct for loss of income because his workers left him in the lurch – i.e. – see lurch deduction of the IRS code. The point is, that when Jesus calls to obey Him in a matter, immediate is always best.

Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.  (Matthew 4:21-22)

Lesson: Oh the joy of immediate obedience – God help me to have it.

Tax Day (United States)



From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  (Redirected from Tax Day)


In the United States, Tax Day is a colloquial term for the day on which individual income tax returns are due to the federal government.[1] The term may also refer to the same day for states, even where the tax return due date is a different day.

Since 1955, for those living in the United States, Tax Day has typically fallen on April 15.[1] For those filing a U.S. tax return but living outside the United States and Puerto Rico, Tax Day has typically fallen on June 15, due to the two-month automatic extension granted to filers by IRS Publication 54.[2]

Due to Emancipation Day in Washington, D.C. (observed on the weekday closest to April 16), when April 15 falls on a Friday, tax returns are due the following Monday; when April 15 falls on a Saturday or Sunday, tax returns are due the following Tuesday.[3][4]
