I hear it said often, "living a Miami Vice lifestyle". You know, I grew up in Miami in the '50s so by the late '70s I was living similarly to how they showed it. Drugs were how you made money. My friends and I went to clubs, we hung out with pretty ladies. Those ladies wore bikinis, they had that high slit in them, and we partied. My friends were race car drivers who paid for their racing by running drugs from Central America. My buddy Don Aronow (who knew George Bush) got shot on powerboat alley in '85. I wore a white blazer too, you know, haha? But it was fun man, we partied, drugs made me some cash Miami vice was real for me.

The old idea is actually a phrase attributed to Benjamin Franklin, who in a 1789 letter penned the phrase “Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes...

Today is Tax Day and this dreaded day was made worse by being on Monday. Financial procrastinators had an extra weekend to file their taxes, and thos lucky enough to live in New England can thank Patriot's Day for extending the deadline until Tuesday.

So, if you haven't filed your taxes yet, you have until tomorrow to file for an extension. If you have filed, congratulations.

There are a few changes that could affect your 2015 returns, including a rise in tax brackets, personal exemptions and the earned income credit.
