In today's ZIGGY cartoon by Tom Wilson our hero is sitting at a desk in the offices of the Internal Revenue Service.
The IRS agent tells Ziggy, ". . .and check this box if you want your refund to go to less fortunate taxpayers!"
But Ziggy does not have to check the box - Congress has already checked it for him! Chances are his refund would be bigger if it were not for the almost half of Americans who, thanks to the idiots in Congress, either pay absolutely no federal income tax or who actually make a profit by filing a Form 1040.
And did you see Tom's comment to my Happy Halloween post?
"Tax classes start Wednesday with 2 hrs of ethics, which means that half the class will be playing on their laptops/notebooks, 1/4 will be reading paperbacks/newspapers, etc. and the other 1/4 will be walking around or taking long smoking/bathroom breaks..."
I am usually in the 1/4 that read newspapers - or other sections of the workbook.
