Dad & Taxes

Sunday was Father's Day, and if your family is like most, you talked about golf, or fishing, or the latest happenings on Duck Dynasty. You probably didn't talk about taxes, just because Dad doesn't like paying them! So here are some "father and family" themed tax quotes to put a smile on your face today:

"Every year, the night before he paid his taxes, my father had a ritual of watching the news. We figured it made him feel better to know that others were suffering." Narrator, The Wonder Years television series

"My father has a great expression: 'The capital-gains tax has created more millionaires than any other government policy.' The capital-gains tax tends to make investors hold longer. That is almost always the right decision." Chris Davis

"Our forefathers made one mistake. What they should have fought for was representation without taxation." Fletcher Knebel

"Throughout the first half of our history, Americans hated tax with passion, something they inherited from the founding fathers." Charles Adams

"Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys." P.J. O'Rourke

"The trouble with being a breadwinner nowadays is that the government is in for such a big slice." Mary McCoy

"A well-timed death is the acme of good tax planning, better even than a well-timed marriage." Donald C. Alexander (former IRS Commissioner under Rixhard M. Nixon)

"If you are truly serious about preparing your child for the future, don't teach him to subtract — teach him to deduct." Fran Lebowitz
