Tax Carnival #37: Leaving on a Jet Plane

Welcome to the 37th Carnival of Taxes. Long-time readers know that I usually come up with a theme for the submissions, throw in some segues between posts and sprinkle a few images throughout.

Today, however, I'm heading to Denver for a Taxpayer Advocacy Panel meeting. Not to worry; I'm taking the trusty laptop for on-the-road postings.

In preparation for the trip, I was up way too late last night trying, semi-successfully, to wrap up some projects. And as you can see from the time stamp, I had to get up at Oh-dark-thirty this a.m. to beat rush hour traffic en route to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

I'm traveling light, having emptied my carry-on and pockets of any items that could attract TSA attention.

This 37th Tax Carnival takes that same approach. Nothing fancy this time, folks. OK, I had to put in one photo.

But the focus is on the collection of postings to help get you to your tax destination. So let's proceed to the boarding gate:
