Tax tips from The Onion

This American tax day, The Onion offers valuable advice for completing tax forms. Although most of our readers are Canadian, I don't doubt they, too, will see the wisdom in these suggestions. Here are a few:

  • Pay your owed taxes in pennies. That will get you on the Yahoo! News
    front page, and it will most certainly make the IRS feel foolish.

  • Not putting that little dash through all of your sevens will result in a prison term of up to three years.

  • Screw over the IRS and save time and money by making less than $8,950 a year.

  • Be courteous and include a sheet of scratch paper with your forms for the IRS to do math on.

  • It's not widely publicized, but now that all taxpayers are part owners of Merrill Lynch, you can use their bathrooms.

Read the rest here.
