A Collection… The Humorous Side of Tax… (20)

Each year during tax season I post some of my favorite tax quotes and tax humor on TaxConnections. Enjoy!

♦ Tax Accountant after reading a nursery rhyme to his child,”No, son. It wouldn’t be tax deductible when Little Bo Peep loses her sheep. But I like your thinking.”

♦ Did you know that 10 out of 9 accountants can’t count?

♦ If you are truly serious about preparing your child for the future, don’t teach him to subtract, teach him to deduct. — Fran Lebowitz
