Shhh... don't tell...

Tax day is actually April 18th this year. Because of a government holiday we have 3 extra days to file. Even if today was tax day, you wouldn't have to pick up your taxes from your taxman if he efiled them for you. They've already been filed. Electronically. Hence the "e" in efile. There is no magic button that he pushes to grant your request once you pay him. Unfortunately he does not have that power. But don't tell. The 30+ people that rushed down to pick up their papers today will feel dumb. (Also don't tell the taxman that I'm posting this while on the clock waiting for a client to come in and pick up their already efiled taxes from 2 months ago.) Silly people.
