Income Tax Day at Farley! A Call for Photos
April 14th, 2008, 12:54 pm
According to a survey by TurboTax, New York ranks #2 in the nation in the number of last-minute tax filers (Chicago is #1). Each year the Farley Post Office holds an unofficial celebration of the city’s culture of procrastination as last-minute filers, protesters, and even the Singing CPA convene on its steps and in the lobby. This year “dozens of Uncle Sams” will hand out “tens of thousands of crunchy Pretzel Crisps (fat free, cholesterol free pretzel crackers) — providing consumers with a stress-relieving crunch to help them make it through the day.” And, as usual, the Singing CPA will serenade tax filers with hits from his recently released his third album from 11pm to midnight. If you find yourself at Farley on Tuesday take some pictures and submit them to our Flickr pool or send them to email@example.com.
