Tax season is upon us and it’s gearing up to be an interesting one in D.C. Expect the Tax March on April 15, and food and drink specials on Tax Day, April 18.
On Saturday, tens of thousands of Americans will descend upon the West Front of the Capitol Building for the Tax Day March. The goal is to demand that Donald Trump release his tax returns and drop his plan to cut taxes for wealthy Americans and corporations. Follow marchers from the beginning at the Capitol Building before past Trump International Hotel and the IRS building, before ending at the Lincoln Memorial.
During the march, expect to hear from speakers like Sen. Maxine Waters (aka Auntie Maxine), and to waddle alongside Donny the Tax Chicken (who conveniently looks a lot like Trump, toupee and all) to demand that the President release his tax returns. A special guest that has also appeared at Bentzen Ball will also be there.
After you work up an appetite from all that marching, gear up for some sweet Tax Day specials on Tuesday, April 18 in and around D.C. Local restaurants and bars are offering special deals on Tax Day to cut hungry taxpayers some monetary slack.
