Alas, I am one of a few (sic) Americans who has waited until the last minute to file Income Taxes. Under normal circumstances "1040" makes me think that it is twenty minutes of eleven.
I remember when L.S.M.F.T. was a slogan on a cigarette commercial. Do you remember what that acronym actually meant? No, I'm not referring to that joke we learned in Junior High about a loose strap!
"While President Bush was doing his taxes, under dependents he listed Scooter Libby, Tom DeLay and Jack Abramoff. Then he caught himself, 'Dependents? Oh, I thought it said defendants.'" - Jay LenoIt's time I figured out into how many pieces I'm going to be sliced and diced! Why is that I when think of an IRS auditor, I visualize a butcher in a blood-stained apron?
A harp is a piano after taxes.When it comes to claiming dependents, I fail to see the logic that our government applies to this line item. Have they ever taken a gander at what I pay out to my home-heating oil man, gas station attendant or mechanic? If you ask me, they are very much dependent of me! What about my doctor, who without me couldn't afford his greens fees?
Ever wonder why the IRS calls it Form 1040?
Because for every $50 that you earn, you get 10 and they get 40.
Isn't it appropriate that the month of the tax begins with April Fool's Day and ends with cries of "May Day!"?
A businessman was near death and made arrangements for his remains to be sent to the Internal Revenue Service with the following note: "Now you have it all."
George Washington never told a lie, but then he never had to file a Form 1040.Marriage does have one advantage over co-habitation, at least you can file a joint return. The honeymoon was over though when she began to suspect she might not be anything more than a tax deduction.
If Nathan Hale were alive today he would be quoted as saying, "My only regret is that I have but only one income to give to my country."
Patrick Henry ought to come back and see what taxation with representation is like.
On the other hand, the way the cost of living and taxes are today, you might as well marry for love.
What God hath joined together, let no higher tax bracket put asunder.The only things certain are death and taxes.
What is the definition of death?
It's when you stop paying taxes - suddenly!
Zero Gravity!Enough of the serious blogging - it's time for some humor. Wait a minute! I forgot to write anything serious! It's just as well, nobody comes here to read serious posts anyway!
When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ball-point pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat this problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion developing a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 C. The Russians used a pencil.
Eternal Punishment For Cheating
One day, this man, Tony, died. When he was sent to be judged, he was told that he had committed a sin, and that he could not go to heaven right away. He asked what he did and God told him that he cheated on his income taxes, and that the only way he could get into heaven would be to sleep with a 500 pound, stupid, butt-ugly woman for the next five years and enjoy it. Tony decided that this was a small price to pay for an eternity in heaven. So off he went with this enormous woman, pretending to be happy.
As he was walking along, he saw his friend Carlos up ahead. Carlos was with an even bigger, uglier woman than he was with. When he approached Carlos he asked him what was going on, and Carlos replied, "I cheated on my income taxes and scammed the government out of a lot of money...even more then you did."
They both shook their heads in understanding and figured that as long as they have to be with these women, they might as well hang out together to help pass the time.
Now Tony, Carlos, and their two beastly women were walking along, minding their own business when Tony and Carlos could have sworn that they saw their friend Jon up ahead, only this man was with an absolutely drop dead gorgeous supermodel / centerfold. Stunned, Tony and Carlos approached the man and in fact it was their friend Jon. They asked him how is he with this unbelievable goddess, while they were stuck with these god-awful women.
Jon replied, "I have no idea, and I'm definitely not complaining. This has been absolutely the best time of my life (and I'm dead,) and I have five years of the best sex any man could hope for to look forward to. There is only one thing that I can't seem to understand.
After everytime we have sex, she rolls over and murmurs to herself, "Damn income taxes!"
Drive carefully. Uncle Sam needs every taxpayer he can get.
