Tax day is just around the corner, and we even get a one-day reprieve since April 15 falls on a Sunday.
And since everyone knows that I’m a big fan of the current tax system and the IRS (speaking of which, here’s a very good joke), let’s celebrate by digging into the Jeff MacNelly archives for these two tax cartoons.
First, here’s what many of us will be doing next weekend. Click to enlarge the cartoon. Every line is worth reading.
It would be nice to have a simple and fair system like the flat tax, requiring a 10-line return that can fit on a postcard. But be wary of some “simple” plans, as shown by Barack Obama’s two-line plan for a flat tax.
Jeff MacNelly was my favorite political cartoonist during my formative years. Sadly, he passed away far too early.
