Way back in 1963, the singer Andy Williams introduced one of the most popular Christmas songs of all time: “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.” Decades later, the office-supply store Staples re-purposed it to sell school supplies, and Miller recycled it once again to sell light beer. But for our friends at the IRS, the most wonderful time of the year starts right now. So here are some tax time quotes to get you in the spirit of the season:

“It’s tax time. I know this because I’m staring at documents that make no sense to me, no matter how many beers I drink.”
Dave Barry“Nuclear physics is much easier than tax law. It’s rational and always works the same way.”
Jerold Rochwald
“I don’t care anymore whether I pay more taxes or less taxes, as long as I don’t have to understand it.”
Bob Thaves (“Frank & Ernest”)
“If you make any money, the government shoves you in the creek once a year with it in your pockets, and all that don’t get wet you can keep.”
Will Rogers
“You don’t pay taxes — they take taxes!”
Chris Rock
“Nothing makes a man and wife feel closer, these days, than a joint tax return.”
Gil Stern
“U.S. Internal Revenue Service: an agency modeled after the revenue raising concepts of the 19th century economist, Jesse James.”
Robert Brault

“It would be nice if we could all pay our taxes with a smile, but normally cash is required.”

Sure, writers and columnists like Will Rogers and Dave Barry can make you laugh at the tax man. But can they actually help you pay less? No! And there’s nothing funny about wasting money on tax you don’t have to pay. So email us, when you’re ready for a plan, and you’ll enjoy having the last laugh on the IRS!
