Tax Time!

The Tax deadline is quickly approaching. I imagine that you have already filed if you have moola coming back to you. Chances are you'll be waiting til the last moment to file if you owe the government this year. You may want to try what I'm doing. It's called the Alternative Tax Payment Plan (ATPP). It is very easy to do. Fill out all of your forms as usual and then attach a letter like I did instead of a payment. Here is my letter:

Dear IRS:
Enclosed is my tax return & payment. Please take note of the attached newspaper article and you will see that the Pentagon is paying $171.50 for hammers and NASA has paid $600 for a toilet seat. Please find enclosed four toilet seats (value $2400) and six hammers (value $1029). This brings my total payment to $3429. Please note the overpayment of $22 and apply it to the Presidential Election Fund, as noted on my return.
Might I suggest you send the above-mentioned fund a 1.5-inch screw? (See attached article: HUD paid $22 for a 1.5 inch Phillips head screw.) It has been a pleasure to pay my tax bill this year, and I look forward to paying it again next year.

Good luck and happy filing!

Thursday is conjugal visit day. Please refrain from visiting that day.
