Tuesday is tax day here in America. It’s the last day we have to pay our taxes for the 2011 calendar year. Hopefully, you all have it done. If not you can file an automatic 6-month extension by filling out Form 4868.
Obama Voters Asked to Pay Their Fair Share.
Supporters and voters for Barack Obama are being asked to make an extra donation to help cover the added expense of his healthcare plan. The recommended donation amount should be equal to your pre-credit tax (1040 line 44).
Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I make my Obama support payment to the U.S. government?
Citizens who wish to make a general donation to the U.S. government may send contributions to a specific account called “Gifts to the United States.” This account was established in 1843 to accept gifts, such as bequests, from individuals wishing to express their patriotism to the United States. Money deposited into this account is for general use by the federal government and can be available for budget needs. These contributions are considered an unconditional gift to the government. Financial gifts can be made by check or money order payable to the United States Treasury and mailed to the address below.

I’m married and only my spouse voted for Obama.
You should file taxes separately and submit only a support payment for your spouse.
