There was a man who computed his taxes for
1998 and found that he
owed $3,407. He packaged up his payment and included this
Dear IRS: Enclosed is my 1998 Tax Return & payment. Please take
note of the attached article from the USA Today newspaper. In
the article, you will see that the Pentagon is paying $171.50
for hammers and NASA has paid $600.00 for a toilet seat.
Please find enclosed four toilet seats (value $2,400) and six
hammers (value $1,029).
This brings my total payment to $3,429.00. Please note the
overpayment of $22.00 and apply it to the 'Presidential Election
Fund', as noted on my return. Might I suggest you to send the
above mentioned fund a '1.5 inch screw'. (See attached article
- HUD paid $22.00 for a 1.5 inch Phillips Head Screw.)
It has been a pleasure to pay my tax bill this year, and I look
forward to paying it again next year.
