Tax Returns Among the Strange Things Seen at Coachella This Year

Among all the music, fashion, art and psychedelic wonder at Coachella this year, was something slightly more banal: tax returns!

At least 10 people tried in the first day of the annual music festival, according to Megan Hampton, the tiny post office’s quasi-post master.

“No, I can’t ‘just take it’,” Hampton said. “How do they have their taxes here? I don’t know.”

Of all the tax filing gimmicks being thrown at Millennials, you have to wonder why advertising at mid-April musical festival hasn't already been considered as possible ploy. Here's hoping H&R Block throws some money at this for next year; maybe an elaborate tax prep art installation that questions CPAs' credentials and qualifications.
