Today is officially tax day.

You’ve got ’til midnight, those who still do it by mail, that is.

Apparently, some attendees at the Coachella music festival this weekend tried to mail their taxes from the tiny auxilliary post office at the campground there.

The lady who runs it said at least 10 people tried to mail their taxes this weekend.

She also said, “How do they have their taxes here? I don’t know.”

Yeah, me neither.
