MONDAY, APRIL 15TH: National Date Today: ●

National Tax Day:​ Tax Day is when individual income tax returns are due to the federal government. Income tax was first collected in The United States in 1862 to fund the Civil War. It was deemed unconstitutional due to not being apportioned with conformity across the states. The United States once again enacted income tax with the 16th Amendment in 1913. At that time, the filing deadline was March 1st. In 1918 the deadline was changed to March 15th and then in 1955 for the most recent change, the filing deadline was moved to April 15th. The day has come to be known as Tax Day. National Titanic Remembrance Day:​ This day is dedicated to the memory of when the Titanic sank into the icy waters of the North Atlantic Ocean. Known as the “the unsinkable ship,” the Titanic hit an iceberg at 11:40 pm April 14, 1912, on her maiden voyage from England to New York City. Later, in the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean, on April 15, the Titanic sank. Those who perished did so mainly due to an insufficient number of lifeboats on board the ship.
