What’s Good about Tax Day?

What do taxes and Derby have to do with each other? Refunds are typically distributed at the same time as the Derby festivities, which is great for consumers who plan on partaking in any of the upcoming events.

An interesting fact: Tax Day falls on April 18th instead of April 15th in 2016. According to Forbes, the reason for the change is:

“By law, when April 16 falls during a weekend, Emancipation Day is observed on the nearest weekday – not necessarily the following weekday. That means, in 2016, Emancipation Day will be observed on Friday, April 15, on what would normally be Tax Day. Tax Day, which falls on a Friday, gets pushed ahead by statute to the next business day, which is Monday, April 18, 2016.”

This is good news because it gives taxpayers more time to file, but let’s talk about  the best part of filing taxes: refunds.

Derby Season is Here!

What’s also exciting is the upcoming Louisville Derby and all the amazing events accompanying it. What better way to spend your refund than on Derby related festivities? Maybe you want a cashmere cape to keep you warm during the fireworks at Thunder Over Louisville, or you need something to add a little extra flare to your Oaks Day dress (we suggest a beautiful silk scarf because they can be worn in multiple ways), or you want a cute accessory for your purse – have you seen our fur key chains? They’re fabulous and add something extra to any purse.

So while you still have some time to file for your return, start thinking about what your plans are. Derby is arguably the best time of the year in Louisville, Kentucky because of all the attention the city gets from national sources. It’s the time of the year that fashion icons flock to the city and the new trends are seen for spring. Do you want to be a trendsetter? Come visit us and stand out this Derby season!
