"Our income tax system is a disgrace to the human race."
"The really rich people figure out how to dodge taxes anyway."
George H.W. Bush
"If our current tax structure were a TV show, it would either be 'Foul-ups, Bleeps and Blunders,' or 'Gimme a Break.' If it were a record album, it would be 'Gimme Shelter.' If it were a movie, it would be 'Revenge of the Nerds' or maybe 'Take the Money and Run.' And if the IRS ever wants a theme song, maybe they'll get Sting to do 'Every breath you take, every move you make, I'll be watching you.'"
"Make sure you pay your taxes; otherwise, you can get in a lot of trouble."
Richard M. Nixon
"I apologize for the inequities in the practical applications of the tax, but if we should wait before collecting a tax to adjust the taxes upon each man in exact proportion with every other, we shall never collect any tax at all."
"I'm delighted to pay big taxes. Big taxes mean big income."
H. Ross Perot
"[The tax code] is a monstrosity and there's only one thing to do with it. Scrap it, kill it, drive a stake through its heart, bury it and hope it never rises again to terrorize the American people."
"The taxpayer — that's someone who works for the federal government but doesn't have to take a civil service examination."
Of course, 2016 is almost here too. And that means time for New Year's resolutions.

If that sounds like a resolution worth keeping, call us and we'll set you up with the plan you need!
