Sunday Funny: Day of Reckoning

The official day taxes are due is April 15, but this year we have an extension until April 17th. Today’s humor is brought to us by several different sources, but the spirit is the same: no more, no new, and preferably no due taxes!

From Saving Advice dot com a sample of quotes you’ll find from some oldie but goodie fames:

” I’m proud to be paying taxes in the United States. The only thing is—I could be just as proud for half the money.” – Arthur Godfrey

“The government deficit is the difference between the amount of money the government spends and the amount it has the nerve to collect.” – Sam Ewing

 

Jeff Fouts Tax attorney has a collection, too:

There was a time when you saved up for your old age; now you save up for April 15th.

A man about to have a heart transplant was offered the choice of either a 26 year-old marathon runner’s heart or the heart of a 62 year-old IRS agent. He picked the agent’s heart because he said it had never been used.

Called in for an audit, Mr. Briggs was confronted by a surly IRS agent. “It says here, Mr. Briggs, that you are a bachelor; yet you claim a dependent son. Surely this must be a mistake.” Looking him straight in the eye, Mr. Briggs replied, “Yup, it surely was.”

This guy walks into the tax auditor’s office, the auditor looks at him and says, “Please Mr. Johnson, take a seat. We already own a piece of yours.”

  1. These are great! Yeah Im sure I will be one of those that will right something smart ass this year! This is my 1st year of doing taxes for my buisnes!

  2. IF there was NO budget for war and all the tax money went to helping people and places then I would gladly pay taxes. But this bs of using ‘our’ tax money to bail out huge banks and companies and to kill people is insane. I wonder if it makes ‘us’ legally responsible for the crimes committed with the money?

    • This is a great post 47whitebuffalo, you are so right, if it went o help others It would be great but the truth is it doesn’t! It goes to bail out huge companies that when you need a break, they don’t even care and not to mention the war!!!!

      • things are waaay outta hand, don’t even know where to begin to fix, then there’s our education problem in the states…taxes go to that too! 😦

    • ouch that might be dangerous to check, LOL we’d have to watch our backs if that came to light through a blogger investigation…
      seriously, it’s waaay outa hand, average person can’t understand the code or the forms…
