Seriously, no one has a clue how to do their taxes

What better way to celebrate the end of tax season than by asking a bunch of strangers how much they actually know about doing their taxes?

This hilarious pair of comedians from the Upright Citizens Brigade improv troupe took to New York’s Times Square to poll random people on taxes and (surprise, surprise) received an overwhelming number of blank stares, long pauses, and uncomfortable laughs. But seriously, what did you expect? Did you really think we’d see someone articulate the differences between an I-9, W-2, and W-9? How about the difference between filing as a freelancer or part-time employee? Literally no one has a clue about taxes. Good luck.
