Taxes, part II

Albert Einstein:  “The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax.”
Arthur Godfrey:  “I am proud to be paying taxes in the United States. The only thing is – I could be just as proud for half the money.” 
Lord Bramwell, 19th Century English jurist:  "Like mothers, taxes are often misunderstood, but seldom forgotten.'' 
The Internal Revenue Code was expressed in 1.4 million words (as of 2000).  IRS regulations are another 8 million words.
In 1999 the number of paid tax preparers was twice as big as the number of policement in the country, and four times as big as the number of firefighters.
More than 60% of US taxpayers pay someone to complete their tax forms.
