Tax Day 2017


According to the IRS, “People have until Tuesday, April 18, 2017 to file their 2016 returns and pay any taxes due. The deadline is later this year due to several factors. The usual April 15 deadline falls on Saturday this year, which would normally give taxpayers until at least the following Monday. However, Emancipation Day, a D.C. holiday, is observed on Monday, April 17, giving taxpayers nationwide an additional day to file.”

The filing date for Illinois State income tax returns is also April 18, 2017.

Equal Pay Day

Equal Pay Day was originated in 1996 as a public awareness event to illustrate the gap between men's and women's wages. 

Tuesday was selected to represent how far into the next work week women must work to earn what men earned the previous week.

In 2015, women working full time in the United States typically were paid just 80 percent of what men were paid, a gap of 20 percent. The gap has narrowed since 1960, due largely to women’s progress in education and workforce participation and to men’s wages rising at a slower rate. 

The American  Association of University Women has compiled an updated report on the gender pay gap.  Interesting and informative reading on this important issue.

U.S House of Representatives Pi Day Resolution

Happy 3.14! In 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.Res. 224. Here is the summary: The House of Representatives (1) supports the designation of a “Pi Day” and its celebration around the world; (2) recognizes the continuing importance of National Science Foundation’s math and science education programs; and (3) encourages schools and educators to observe the day with appropriate activities that teach students about Pi and engage them about the study of mathematics.
