Welcome to Tax Time!

It’s that time of the year that most people do not enjoy-tax season. Many people are scrambling today to get their tax forms finished. While others are hoping they can pay their taxes. As the old saying goes, “There’s Nothing Certain except Death and Taxes.”

I think George Harrison did a brilliant job writing about the tax man many years ago. I have included the video and the lyrics to this wonderful song. So hopefully this will brighten up your day and ease your tax pain.

Taxman by the Beatles

Let me tell you how it will be
There’s one for you, nineteen for me
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman

Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I don’t take it all
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah I’m the taxman

If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat.
If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.

Don’t ask me what I want it for
If you don’t want to pay some more
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman

Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman
And you’re working for no one but me.

Wise Old Native American Chief

The quote reads: Vice President Lyndon Johnson received the following mess age from a Native American Chief on a reservation: “Be careful with your immigration laws. We were careless with ours. ”

Native American Observation recently an old Native American Indian Chief sat in his hut on the reservation, smoking a Ceremonial pipe and eyeing two U. S. Government officials sent by the President to interview him. “Chief Two Eagles” asked one official, “You have observed the white man for 90 years. You’ve seen his wars and his technological advances you have seen his progress, and the damage he’s done.” The Chief nodded in agreement. The official continued, “Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?” *

The Chief stared at the government officials for over a minute and then calmly replied, “When white man found the land, Indians were running it. No taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, women did all work, medicine man free, Indian man spent all day hunting and fishing, all night having sex.” Then the chief leaned back and smiled. “Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that*
