Laughing at Uncle Sam — Funny Taxes for Freelancers
Okay, tax season is over, but I just found a gem — a tongue-in-cheek tax form for freelancers which includes such perks as a Twitter allowance and a working-in-pajamas deduction.
“Deduct 100 percent of the change stuck in your couch. Deduct 200 percent if you found the couch on the street.”
And don’t forget to claim the “That/Which Deduction”:
“Deduct $1 for every grammatical error in a sign or poster that you pointed out to someone else.”
As usual, I seem to be the last person at the party — this tax form was published more than a year ago. (Deduct $1 for knowing not to say “over” a year ago.)
If you’ve been living under a rock like I have, and you have a hankering to waste three minutes, check it out.
