It's tax time, so here's a tip:

Postby Madison » Wed Mar 01, 2006 1:13 am

Dear IRS,

Enclosed is my 2005 tax return showing that I owe $3,407.00 in taxes.

Please note the attached article from USAToday, wherein you will
see that the Pentagon pays $171.50 for hammers, NASA has paid $600.00 for a toilet seat and HUD pays $22.00 each for 1.5" Phillips head screws.

I am enclosing four toilet seats (value $2400) and six hammers
(value $1029), bringing my total remitted to $3429.00. Please apply the overpayment of $22.00 to the "Presidential Election Fund," as noted on my return. You can do this inexpensively by sending them one 1.5" 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.

Sincerely,

A Satisfied Taxpayer


:-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Man, if only that would fly...

Of course, the recourse to that is that if I got a refund they'd send me a couple of hammers and call it good, so I'm not sure the trade-off is worth it...
Keep wreves in General Talk in 2011!

Wouldn't it be nice if that would work, heck I know I got a few hammers laying around outside in the building.
