The latest bright idea from our friends in Congress is that they will change the tax code so dramatically you’ll be able to do your tax return on the back of a post card.
The first problem I see is that everyone in the US Post Office will be able to see just how much you made last year.
Here’s my return well before April 15th 2018:
How much did you make? Umpty Nine Billion
How much have you stashed offshore? Another Umpty Nine Billion
How many Congresspersons do you own? Several dozen
Tax breaks weasled from your state and local governments ? About a Gazillion.
How many lobbyists do you employ? ( Optional) No Comment
Taxes owed – $3.00
Taxes paid – $3.00
Amount you want credited to next year’s taxes? Eleventy Billion.
