Tax Season Humor for Tax Pros

CPAs, attorneys and EAs all need a little comic relief to get through the tax season. Here are a few of my favorite funny tax quotes. On a serious note, the sooner you add tax resolution to your practice, the sooner you don’t have to be codependent on tax season (and endure the stress of it).  Solving tax problems is a year round business that can boost your business.

“Tax law is a funny thing. I think it fair to say that most CPAs know something about the federal income tax; many if not most lawyers do not.” ~ Bernard Wolfman

A CPA goes into a pet shop to buy a parrot. The shopkeeper shows him three identical parrots on a perch and says, “The parrot on the left costs $500.” “Why does that parrot cost so much?” asks the CPA. “Well”, replies the owner, “it knows how to do complex audits.” “How much does the middle parrot cost?” asks the CPA. “That one costs $1,000 because it can do everything the first one can do plus it knows how to prepare financial forecasts.” The startled CPA asks about the third parrot, to be told it costs $4,000. Needless to say, this begs the question, what can it do? To which the owner replies, “To be honest, I have never seen him do a darn thing, but the other two call him Senior Partner.”

“I would suggest the taxation of all property equally whether church or corporation, exempting only the last resting place of the dead and possibly, with proper restrictions, church edifices.”  ~ Ulysses S. Grant
