Who said, “In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes”?
– Thomas Edison
– Albert Einstein
– Benjamin Franklin
– Henry Ford
Answer: It’s Tax Day folks! One of the most famous quotations by Benjamin Franklin is: “Our new Constitution is now established, everything seems to promise it will be durable; but, in this world, nothing can be certain except death and taxes.” So why is Tax Day on April 17 this year? It’s due to a combination of the 15th falling on a Sunday and a holiday unique to Washington, D.C., hitting on Monday the 16th. The nation’s capital celebrates Emancipation Day to mark the date that President Abraham Lincoln freed slaves there in 1862.
