Dear IRS.......

Dear Internal Revenue Service:
Enclosed you will find my 2007 tax return
showing that I owe
in taxes.
Please note the attached article
from the USA Today newspaper;
dated 12 November,
wherein you will see the Pentagon (Department of Defense)
is paying $171.50 per hammer
and NASA has paid $600.00 per toilet seat.
I am enclosing four (4) toilet seats
(valued @ $2,400)
and six (6) hammers
(valued @ $1,029),
which I secured at Home Depot,
bringing my total remittance to $3,429.00.
Please apply the overpayment of $22.00
to the
'Presidential Election Fund,'
as noted on my return.
You can do this inexpensively
by sending them one 1.5' Phillips Head screw driver
(see aforementioned article from USA Today newspaper
detailing how H.U.D. pays $22.00 each for 1.5' Phillips Head Screws).
One screw is enclosed for any
intrest you feel I have accrued
and for your convenience.
It has been a pleasure to pay my tax bill this year,
and I look forward to paying it again
next year.
A Satisfied Taxpayer

Now this is what a call almost british sense of humour!

I'm not sure the guys on the IRS would giggle or even laugh at this, but I did.

Man, hammers are really expensive nowadays!

Always glad to make you giggle.

I love it when you smile {{{big}}}

Ya. Remember this next year but I'll bet cha' expenses will have risen.
I am still here.

I justified it because I am a military daughter. I know how it works!

Yup. I was sent this in an email and I just HAD to share it!
