SANDRA SMITH (CO-HOST): First, this round table discussion on taxes and tax reform, and this one day ahead of the tax deadline in this country. If you haven't done them, file your extension. But, live look at Miami --

HARRIS FAULKNER (CO-HOST): If you haven't done your taxes now, you need to turn away from the TV to your computer.

SMITH: You'd be shocked how many people who wait until the final day though.
