Happy Halloween Tax Deadline! – Don’t Miss These Taxes.

Hundreds of years ago, people dressed up as saints and Ghost and went door to door to trick or treat , which is the origin of Halloween costumes and trick-or-treating, no matter how old you are or how many times you’ve been around the block, the holiday simply never gets old. The kids get the chance to dress up and enjoy the horror and fun of the event and the adults have an excuse to sip on a boo-zy Halloween cocktail.

On Halloween, it is believed that ghosts come back to the earthly world, and out of the fear that people would encounter ghosts if they leave their homes people would wear masks when they leave their homes to avoid being recognized by these ghosts after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits.

Interestingly, this holiday has come to stay but with some modification and civilization, now Halloween is more of a social event that brings family together while trying to replicate a scenario where they hilariously dress up and scare each other, attend Halloween cocktail party and find the beauty even in the scary and haunted activities of the holiday.

But you know what else is scary? Missing the IRS deadline to file your Excise tax return. Halloween is celebrated on 31st of October every year and so is the deadline fixed by the IRS to file your excise tax return Form 720, IFTA and the Heavy Highway Vehicle Used Tax return Form 2290 for any truck that is put into service in September 2019.
