The new tax year started off with a bang. We finally got, regardless of whether we wanted it, some major changes to the tax code.
That's going to take a while, especially since we still have to file our 2017 tax returns using, for the most part, the old tax laws.
All this means that we're going to be awash in lots and lots of tax-related numbers.
The good thing about all these figures, though, is that they provide plenty of fodder for the 2018 version of By the Numbers.
This is the eighth year 2017 for this numerical tradition here at the ol' blog.
The figures will range from tax rate percentages to dollar amounts to titles of tax legislation to raw numbers and much, much more. Basically, I'll choose any and every thing that has even a remote tax connection to be featured.
Again as in past years, I'll try to get the relevant figures up each weekend. But sometimes stuff happens, meaning the number goes up early or, more usually, late.
Regardless of the timing, you can always find a link to the new number on the ol' blog's home page under the multicolored numbers box (pictured on this page, too!), as well as on this special page. The newest post each week will go at the top of the list.
So welcome 2018. Let's get to counting!
