Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Sign and Date Properly

Personal tax filing takes a deep breath.
It’s to your benefit to file on time.
It’s a reality, right up there with death,
Internal Revenue says not filing’s a crime.

Carefully comb each allowance you list,
no, your dog is not an exemption.
The size of the accountant fee has you pissed.
Speaking of crimes, so is strangulation.

Yes, your wife is still considered a dependent
even if she’s the main bread winner.
To your credit by April 15th the return will be sent,
with the refund you can treat her to dinner.

Don’t wage a tax revolt or stand to protest,
doing so could land you as a Federal Pen guest,
get it through your head 'Uncle Sugar' knows best.
