It's that time of year -- at least for U.S. folks: Tax time!

That's right, and thankfully, we get an extra two days to file this year. April 15 is a Sunday, and apparently, April 16 is a legal holiday that is recognized only by Washington, D.C. A moot point if you've already filed, but hey. ;)

Anyway, under the cut is a somewhat lengthy poll involving income tax returns for 2006. I tried as best as I could to avoid asking anything that would reveal income status or other bits of info that might be considered too personal. It's just mainly asking stuff like whether you've filed yet, and whether you filed electronically, etc. Even so, I have set the results to display only to members of this community. If anyone would prefer that I change the "whoview" setting to "none," please let me know, and I will repost this completely to do so.
