Death and Taxes...and Hockey: Canadians Rewrote the Rules on Sunday

Have a look at the QuickTax Online usage statistics from Sunday's gold medal game between Canada and the US.

Canada's most popular online tax software rode the bench as Canadians stopped for a rare treat - three periods and an overtime of gold medal hockey. The peaks and valleys in the chart below clearly show that, even with the RRSP deadline only hours away, Canadians have their priorities.
