A Collection… The Humorous Side of Tax… (21)



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

♦ “Today is April 1, April Fools’ Day, a day that people try to fool their friends and relatives. Don’t confuse that with April 15, when people try to fool the IRS.”

♦ April is always a difficult month for Americans — even if your ship comes in, the IRS is right there to help you unload it.

♦ “I’m not going to pay taxes. When they say I’m going to prison, I’ll say no, prisons cost taxpayers a lot of money. You keep what it would have cost to incarcerate me, and we’ll call it even.” – Jimmy Kimmel

♦ The only thing about taxes that all Americans can agree on is that someone else should pay them. – Scott Burns, msn.com

♦ When it comes to finances, remember that there are no withholding taxes on the wages of sin.  – Mae West

♦ “Every year, I include a piece of chicken in the envelope with my taxes. Not as a bribe, just a little treat for the guy at the IRS who opens it.” – Jimmy Kimmel
