There was a man who computed his taxes for 1998 and
discovered that he owed $3407. He packaged up his payment and
included this letter:
Enclosed is my 1998 Tax Return & payment. Please take note
attached article from the USA Today newspaper. In the
article, you will
see that the Pentagon is paying $171.50 for hammers and NASA
$600.00 for a toilet seat.
Please find enclosed four toilet seats (value $2400) and six
(value $1029). This brings my total payment to $3429.00.
Please note the
overpayment of $22.00 and apply it to the "Presidential
as noted on my return. Might I suggest you send the above
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
to paying it again next year.
A satisfied taxpayer
