Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

What are taxes and how do I pay them?

A:

Dear you,

1) Money you voluntarily forfeit as monetary consideration for the social contract. Or, alternately, theft by the government. (Depending on the particular tax and/or your political views.)

2) Yeah, you need more involved advice than we can give you. Consider contacting VITA or a tax professional or accountant. 

Good luck!
