Random Tax Facts

Two groups of people pay taxes which really don't sound all that bad trouble is the two groups are women and men that makes it all rather sad. Were I asked, What's the Eiffel Tower? my answer would be - I'm afraid It's what's left of the Empire State Building after it's taxes are paid! If you're wondering why Form 1040 is used well friend, here are the facts For every 50 dollars the taxpayer earns 10 goes to him and the other 40 to tax!

Great fun with this one, though I think the last line occurs more in Europe than here. (well, probably our time is coming very soon!) Congratulations. LUv, Andrea

Ralph, you had me picturing a skeletal Empire State Building and the last verse was positively outrageously funny. Congratulations on your first-place win. The competition was very strong, so take pride in your accomplishment! Love, Carolyn

Finally I know the meaning of 1040. The Eiffel Tower joke was really funny too. Like stripping the guts out of the Empire State building. One of the best I've seen for the contest. Good luck Ralph, Diane
