There was a man who computed his taxes for 1997 and found that he owed $3407. He packaged up his payment and included this letter:


Dear IRS:


Enclosed is my 1997 Tax Return & payment. Please take note of the attached article from the USA Today newspaper. In the article, you will see that the Pentagon is paying $171.50 for hammers and NASA has paid $600.00 for a toilet seat.


Please find enclosed four toilet seats (value $2400) and six

hammers (value $1029).


This brings my total payment to $3429.00. Please note the

overpayment of $22.00 and apply it to the 'Presidential Election

Fund', as noted on my return. Might I suggest you the send the

above mentioned fund a '1.5 inch screw'. (See attached article -HUD paid $22.00 for a 1.5 inch Phillips Head Screw.)


It has been a pleasure to pay my tax bill this year, and I look

forward to paying it again next year.
