“and on the 15th day of April, he collected taxes”

Today is one of the worst days of the year…tax day! All that hard earned money gets paid into the government and the great redistribution begins again. Here are some of my favorite tax quotes (and, of course, a limerick).

Today is the day that the axes
Fall heavy and hard on the back-es
Of regular folk
Who can’t shake the yolk
Of paying their government taxes.
