Alabama is launching a pilot program this year that will allow residents to more “securely” file their taxes by using an app that verifies their identity with a selfie. Those who try it out are promised faster processing and a quicker return. As tempting as that is, you probably shouldn’t do it.

The EU’s Executive Commission just ordered Apple €13 billion ($14.5 billion) plus interest for back taxes it owes Ireland. So what does that bill really mean? For the most valuable company on Earth, not much.

The Justice Department filed a lawsuit on Wednesday, hoping compel Facebook to turn over information regarding any transfer of global assets to an Irish-based holding company on its 2010 tax return.

Cupertino mayor Barry Chang is apparently not an Apple fanboy. In a fiery interview with The Guardian, Chang says he was kicked out of Apple HQ when he was a city councilman.

Tax day is upon us. For some that means a refund check, and for others, that means saying goodbye to your cold hard cash. So for this week’s Shooting Challenge, we’re photographing money. But be sure to read how to do it legally:
The only thing that sucks worse than doing taxes is a hacker stealing your identity, doing your taxes for you, and then depositing your return in a random bank account, where it can later be transferred to Nigeria.
