Did you know that according to a
GAO report, people who do their
taxes overpay an average of $610.

In 1913 - the first year of the US
Income Tax - a single individual
got to deduct a personal exemption
of $3,000. For the 2000 tax year,
a single exemption was $2,650.

Well now. If the tax of 1% in 1913
rose to 15% in 2000, and you throw
in a little inflation, the amount
of a personal exemption should be


So much for adjusting for inflation.
Also, in 1913 you did not have to file unless
you made $4,000.  Adjusted for inflation,
you would not have to file today unless you
made $69,000.

YOUR Largest Possible Refund

Remember, the only thing better

taxes, is to have Fox Tax
prepare your return(s).

Our forefathers revolted against
taxation "Without Representation".
Think what they would do if they
time traveled to the present and
saw what taxation was like
"With Representation".

You may NOT pay income
taxes by using pennies.
It is against the law.

The IRS does not make laws regarding taxes,
penalities, collections, etc.  Their BOSS,
the US congress makes the laws, and
the IRS enforces them.


Keep your "cool" when doing taxes.
