* Just a reminder – I will be guest-hosting the next TAX CARNIVAL this coming Monday.

Those of you who are so inclined have until the end of the day on Saturday to submit your postings to be considered for inclusion in the Carnival.

* It seems that Trump got himself a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (who did he have to pay for that?). David Letterman and Conan O’Brien had some dead on comments on this “event”

“Donald Trump got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It’s now official – Hollywood has run out of stars.” D LETTERMAN

“In California Donald Trump got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week. At the ceremony Donald became so choked up that he forgot to say that Rosie is fat.” C O’BRIEN

* According to a report by Washington DC’s WTOP Radio, “Federal Workers Owe Billions in Unpaid Taxes

The federal government is trying to recover $2,799,950,165 from 450,000 of its own active and retired employees who failed to voluntarily comply with federal income tax requirements and did not file income tax returns for 2005, according to documents obtained by WTOP through the Freedom of Information Act. The documents show that every federal agency has employees who failed to comply with federal tax laws.

WTOP has developed an
Excel Spreadsheet to break-down the non-filers by federal departments and agencies.

Our celebration to mark the tax filing deadline of April 15th, families will celebrate the return of Lord Stew Taxalot hopeful they will be one of the lucky recipients of this year’s surprise tax refund
