Final Note

A third of Americans like doing their taxes

This final note today, from the Marketplace Desk of I Don’t Know What is Wrong With You People.

I’m referring to a new survey from the Pew Center for the People and the Press out today, in which I was astounded to learn that 34 percent — 34 percent! — of my fellow Americans “like or love” doing their taxes.

Now, I’m as ready as the next guy to pay what I owe — more, if necessary. But love or even like the experience?

I’d rather have a root canal.
