TAX DAY DEVIL DRYLAND $$$$$
Not only is today, April 15, 2020, the 106th day of the year (this being a leap year), it is also TAX DAY.
Here are some interesting facts of the day:
The first Federal Income Tax was proclaimed by the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, in 1861. That Tax Day was August 5th. Taxes were 3% on anyone earning more than $800 per year (the equivalent of about $22,000 today) and the money went to fund the Civil War.
April 15th of that same year (1861) Lincoln mobilized the Federal Army (75,000 volunteers) in the US Civil War.
April 15th four years later (1865) President Lincoln died 9 hours after being shot while attending the play "Our American Cousin" at Ford's Theatre in Washington.
Question: What year did April 15th become the official US Tax Day?
Did you know that on that same date, April 15, 1955, Ray Kroc opened the first McDonald's Restaurant in Des Plaines, Illinois??????
