What do Margaret Mitchell, Mark Twain, and Shaquille O’Neill all have in common? None of them like paying taxes, that’s what! Here’s a collection of tax quotes to start your day.
“Death and taxes and childbirth. There’s never any convenient time for any of them.”
“Blessed are the young, for they shall inherit the national debt.”
“You know we all hate paying taxes, but the truth of the matter is without our tax money, many politicians wouldn’t be able to afford prostitutes.”
“The government deficit is the difference between the amount of money the government spends and the amount it has the nerve to collect.”
“Basic tax, as everyone knows, is the only genuinely funny subject in law school.”
Martin Ginsburg (Professor, Georgetown University Law Center)
“You’d be surprised at the frivolous things people spend their money on. Taxes, for example.”

“If you sell your soul to the Devil, do you need a receipt for tax purposes?”
“I shall never use profanity except in discussing house rent and taxes.”
“Last time I looked at a check, I said to myself, ‘Who the hell is FICA? And when I meet him, I’m going to punch him in the face. Oh my God, FICA is killing me.'”
“The invention of the teenager was a mistake. Once you identify a period of life in which people get to stay out late but don’t have to pay taxes — naturally, no one wants to live any other way.”
Judith Martin (“Miss Manners”)
We hope you enjoyed these quotes. But please remember this: there’s nothing funny about paying more tax than you legally have to. If this summer’s heat has your blood boiling about taxes and you’re looking for a plan to pay less, call us today!
