It’s tax time in America. This great American season makes grown men cry, competent women tremble, and young people new to the process long for the innocence of childhood.
But it has its ironies. Two illustrations:
1. A firm is advertising its help with investing in the stock market. The last name of one of its counselors is Panic.
2. Paying bills today, I came to the invoice from my CPA firm for preparing my 2007 tax returns. I wrote the check, then recorded it in my checkbook register. The balance after writing the tax prep check was, get this, exactly $1099. Too funny.
