Default Taxes

Tax man cometh for everyone? It's like reverse Christmas. I filed for an extension. First time ever but just don't have all my ducks in a row on time.

I had the money by the start of March this year. I didn't feel like waiting, and mine is pretty simple to do.

Big refund on Federal
Small payment on State
We were a little worried since I am on unemployment - taxes not taken out

Ya know some say that the IRS has no sense of humor but, I recently ran across two sections of tax code that makes me laugh.

1) Theft tax - you have to pay taxes on the value of anything you stole unless you returned it to it's rightful owner within the same year of theft.

2) Drug tax - you must declare all income from the sale of illegal drugs, in the year that you earned it.

It's in Pub. 525 - I forgot the section #'s though.

Sad, but that's the only way they can put some people in jail -- tax evasion.

This site has a very interesting poster that represents the budget. I am thinking about buying it for my classroom.

Nothing makes me feel better than seeing our Prime Minister Harper deliver a budget speech to Parliament outlining new tax increases necessary to meet increasing government expenses, and then going to some banana republic in Africa and pledging millions of our tax dollars in development funding. We're building AIDS clinics in Africa to help fight the AIDS epidemic there. The other way of saying it is that my tax dollars are being spent to build hospitals in Africa so that Africans don't have to wear condoms. Apparantly there's something complicated about condoms that Africans just can't figure out, and that's why they're not wearing them.
