Dear fellow tax hikers, the exhaustive process of naming our Tax Hiker of the Year has finally drawn to a conclusion. This Friday morning at 7:00 AM we will be naming our 2009 Tax Hiker of the Year in an exclusive, web-only release at this site. We promise you that we have found a winner for this prestigious award who will make our entire movement proud.
Before we name our new winner, we owe a deep debt of gratitude to our 2008 Tax Hiker of the Year Virgil Lovitt that we could never repay. Virg has taken his responsibility as a tax hiking leader extremely seriously. He has been a world-class ambassador for our site and has brought us more attention than we could have have ever expected from him. Virg continues to be a great tax hiking leader. We know that he will enjoy his final day as the reigning Tax Hiker of the Year before giving way to our new winner.
Perhaps our most enjoyable part of leading this tax-hiking movement is naming our Tax Hiker of the Year winner each year. This is one way that we get to honor the best our movement has to offer. We feel tremendous pride in honoring our best, and then seeing them continue go on raising taxes higher and higher and higher. We know that all you tax hikers will agree our 2009 winner meets our expectations in every way. Please come back Friday morning to meet our new winner. Tax us more!
