I completely forgot - or tried to forget - once the Holidays end, Tax season begins..Valentine's is mushed up between the two. AngryAngry

I'm thinking they will try to stretch the Christmas commercials to St Valentines day. Easter if they could! Maybe a "circle of life" theme!

Beware, they will soon start Christma$ 2015 Black Friday ads. Meanwhile you got tax nerd. At least Jackson Hewitt dropped their hood commercials so far. And then there is President's Day Weekend with all those mattress and car sales commercials. Goody goody gumdrops. Why not have the Target marshmallow kids squeal like piggies and hawk tax crap and President's Day?

Add the infamous riff from the O'Jays song "For the Love of Money" to any commercial or TV theme = "We are extremely cool and hip." Unhappy Cool

This commercial isn't all that bad.  The old tax nerd looks cute in his bright green bow tie and I've always liked the funkadelic R&B/soul sounds of The O'Jays, including For The Love of Money (listen to the lyrics).

I guess you're not familiar with the guy in the commercial. He used to be in H&R Block commercials. With ridiculous visuals of big blocks of money. Either falling off an aircraft carrier or falling from the sky. He would always yell "GET YOUR BILLIONS BACK AMERICA!" at the top of his lungs at the end!

Circa 1974!

And regarding the post about him falling off the aircraft carrier with billions and billions. Is it just me or does he look like he could be a blood relative of Mr. Matthew Lesko? That's the hyperactive gay nerd with the question mark threads and thick New Yowark accent. Saying you can get millions from the government or something like that.

They did a little parody of the Matthew Lesko program on Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide, and Ned had to eat 500 bowls of oatmeal or something like that to qualify for the money. After he did that, he excitedly declared that he was going to get the money. His friend told him that the money was going towards his college scholarship and not to him, while Ned looked bummed.

I'll probably het my tax forms tomorrow or Saturday. As usual, I'll wait until the final second in April to finish them.  

As for getting my billions back, I bought Kevin Trudeau's book..it didn't work out too well. Cry

That Nerd, I would strongly advise against waiting until April to file your tax forms. I waited until April in 2013 to file my tax forms, and some crook stole my tax information and took my refund money.

Sad thing is, they filed my tax information in February and even sadder, I had my tax information in January. I should have filed my tax information in January as soon as I got it, but I assumed since I had my tax information, only I had access to it.

I knew something was wrong when my Tax information filer called me the very next day. I remember thinking ,"No way in hell are they calling me to tell me my money is already in my bank account. Something is wrong." My suspicion was confirmed when the filer informed me that someone else had already filed in my name and got my money. I was livid!

I was lucky I was getting paid in just a few days, or I would have been extremely screwed. I signed a paper saying that I had been a victim of tax identity theft, and the IRS investigated, and gave me my money 8 months later.

In 2014, I was determined not to let crooks steal my tax identity. I filed my tax information within 3 days of getting my tax information. I had clearly learned my lesson. "Steal from me once, shame on you. Steal from me twice, shame on me." This time, I got my refund in February, rather than in December.

I wonder how Kevin's liking his bid in federal prison.

He's back to his old antics!

There's a scene in a flying cargo plane where at the edge of a ramp a member of a flight crew kicks a bit of leftover money off the edge. Then Mr. Green Bowrtie says "when we mean all of your money, we mean all of it" then he screams "get your billions back America!" Sigh.

I also find it ironic that The (Celebrity) Apprentice uses a song that dissuades the love of money. Of course, I'm a thinking person that thinks about such things so most of the population doesn't so....
