"In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." - Benjamin Franklin
It's that time of year again where many of us say hello to our Uncle Sam with a .. 'gift' aka tax payment. Sorta like paying protection money to the mob.
and.. with regards to Tax Advice.. it's honestly not a good idea to listen to me. I hate taxes.. and THEY hate me.
So instead let me share the Gospel tax advice of Jesus.
Render (give back) unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's. Mark 12:17
As I recall, the only other mention of Jesus and taxes was something about a 'fish tax', and having dinner with that big little tax man Zacchaeus.
Anyways, as I said earlier not much advice from me. Claim your dependents, and all your deductions in hopes of receiving a 'blessed refund' from your loving Uncle Sam.
AND.. if you are asked to pay more taxes..(I call it my tax penance)... then just 'render' a little more to Caesar as you can be sure 'Caesar' will make good use of it.
Happy Taxation wishes from.. The Back Pew
