Americans Get Two Extra Days To Cheat On Their Taxes

Taxpayers around the country will get an extra two days, until April 17, to cheat on their taxes, the Internal Revenue Service said Wednesday.

The two-day extension to the cheating period comes about because April 15 falls on a Sunday this year and April 16 is Emancipation Day, a legal holiday in the District of Columbia.

"American taxpayers work hard to falsify their tax returns and these extra two days should help them to achieve their financial goals," said IRS spokesman Tom Cooper. "The IRS strongly urges all Americans to use this 48-hour extension to their utmost advantage. It should be an essential aid in the last-minute rush to invent fictitious dependents and forge receipts for false deductions."

Taxpayers all over the U.S. welcomed the news. "I'm expecting an extra big refund this year," said Chicago resident Albert Kapone. "I plan to file early and, thanks to the two-day extension, often."
