Since this is the weekend when many Americans are frantically trying to get their tax returns ready for the IRS, we’ll look at the world through tax-colored eyes. First, keep in mind that the IRS isn’t heartless. As long as you give them everything, you won’t be punished.
A lot of people have advocated a flat tax for the United States, but after writing their checks this weekend, a lot of people believe it’s already a flat tax.
Always remember to teach your children the truth about the IRS, even if they also have to learn a different version of reality to talk about at school.
Unfortunately, you’re almost always going to get caught when you play games with the IRS about who your dependents are, so don’t count your dogs, cats and unborn children.
And, finally, remember that the long arm of the IRS will reach out to find you almost anywhere you are, even if you do have a home where the buffalos roam and the skies aren’t cloudy all day.
