A Collection… The Humorous Side of Tax… (22)



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

♦ A lawyer was reading out the will of a rich man to the people mentioned in the will: “To you, my loving wife Rose, who stood by me in rough times, as well as good, I leave the house and two million.”   The lawyer continued, “To my daughter Jessica, who looked after me in sickness and kept the business going, I leave the yacht, the business and one million.”  The lawyer concluded, “And, to my cousin Dan, who hated me, argued with me, and thought that I would never mention him in my will well you are wrong. “Hi Dan!”

♦ Isn’t it appropriate that the month when taxes are due begins with April Fool’s Day and ends with cries of “May Day!”?

♦ A fool and his money are soon parted. The rest of us wait until income tax time.

♦ Q: Who invented copper wire?
   A: Two tax attorneys fighting over a penny.

♦ There is just one thing I can’t figure out.  My income tax! – Nat King Cole
