Ask Taxmama Issue 427 – Tax Blues

On September 28, 1912, the publication of William Christopher Handy’s “Memphis Blues” changed the course of American popular song. Handy introduced an African-American folk tradition, the blues, into mainstream music. By the 1960s, the blues sound had significantly influenced the development of jazz and rock and roll, quintessential American musical forms. Taxes are all about the Blues!
