Taxing Thoughts

The avoidance of taxes is the only intellectual pursuit that carries any reward. - John Maynard (Lord) Keynes, Economist.

A fool and his money are soon parted. It takes creative tax laws for the rest. - Bob Thaves (... or Speaker Kenneth Marende)

A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing something right. – Anonymous

I wouldn't mind paying taxes… if I knew they were going to a friendly country. - Dick Gregory (... or ODM Chairman Henry Kosgey)

I believe we should all pay our tax bill with a smile. I tried but they wanted cash. – Anonymous

The only thing that hurts more than paying an income tax is not having to pay an income tax. - Lord Thomas Robert Dewar

The wages of sin are death, but after they take the taxes out, it's more like a tired feeling, really. - Paula Poundstone

Taxes are not levied for the benefit of the taxed. – Robert Heinlein (... or Ikolomani Chatterbox Bonny Khalwale)

Taxation with representation ain't so hot either. - Gerald Barzan

The income tax created more criminals than any other single act of government. - Barry M. Goldwater

To lay with one hand the power of government on the property of the citizen and with the other to bestow it on favored individuals is none the less robbery just because it is called taxation. - US Supreme Court in Loan Association v. Topeka (1874)

The Government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend upon the support of Paul. - George Bernard Shaw

Government does not tax to get the money it needs; government always finds a need for the money it gets. - Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it. - Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America

To tax the community for the advantage of a class is not protection, it is plunder. - Benjamin Disraeli, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

The more one considers the matter, the clearer it becomes that redistribution is in effect far less a redistribution of free income from the richer to the poorer, as we imagined, than a redistribution of power from the individual to the State.- Bertrand de Jouvenel

The question is: What can we, as citizens, do to reform our tax system? As you know, under our three-branch system of government, the tax laws are created by Satan. But he works through Parliament, so that's where we must focus our efforts. - Dave Barry
