Income Tax Time
~Patches Words Of Wisdom at Tax Time~
Mine Mom is stewing and cross over something called TAXES. She says you are penalized for trying to better yourself. The more improvements her and Dad make to the cabin, the more they pay, even though it is just improving the yard and upkeep. She claims that isn't the only tax that get her in a bad mood. The one called income tax really gets her feathers in a fluff (I have never seen any of Mom's feathers, I am not sure where they are.) She says they aren't employed anymore, they are 'tired but the government still wants a "piece of them." So, it is getting closer and closer to Income Tax Time, and Mom gets crabby and says something about the damn government. (I think that is a bad word, so I made it small.) I know things will be OK after April 15, they always are, but that is a long way to go......Mom, maybe you could write off our stinky goodness and litter. Maybe you could claim us as your kids! Maybe we are a loophole.....

Our mom felt pretty good about those taxes this year but a few weeks after she filed them she learned that the IRS considers a windfall energy rebate the state of NM passed out to everybody in the state (except cats, suspiciously) will be counted as income. Mom said it wasn't a bundle, and was particularly annoyed that this wasn't determined before people started filing. Now she has to mend the returns she filed and she's pretty cranky about that.
Boy I can't wait until we rule the world. I'm going to banish all kinds of taxes for our humans.

In Canada, our taxes aren't due until April 30. But our ad files them ealy so he gets his money back sooner than later. Don't they know their taking stinky goodness out of the mouths of kittens with all these taxes.
PS. My dad would like to know how you upload animated graphics to blogspot. or do you have to host them yourself? Please give him a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org

Patches, our Mother is tired but not 'tired if you know what I mean, but she says the same thing. That d*** takes all her money and she hardly get anything back. The good thing though, is she spends the money on us! We got all kinds of new treats and toys!

I already tried declaring Dino & Pebbles as dependents, but that didn't work. With five little ones now, may be it'll work this time around. (LOL)

Yes, the Troll has been crankier than usual. Muttering something about evil governments and vast conspiracies. She is a little touched in the head though.

William is right, after the cat revolution when we achieve total world domination, there will be no income taxes - after all, that would require cats to werk, and there's no way THAT'S going to happen.

Grandpa gets so cranky that everyone leaves the house until he's done mumbling about the taxes. I'm not allowed to be around because mom doen't want me hearing his potty mouth.

Oh man you shoulda heard the words the Woman used when the Man told her how much they had to pay Uncle Sam for taxes this year! It was more than my head could comprehend. But at least I learned a whole lot of new words because of it all...
Oh! And *I* have to pay taxes because I made money! She says she'll pay it but some of the taxes are my fault!

Your human better be careful what she says, because who knows who's listening. She might end up with an audit, which rhymes with "Aw $#!+!"

yeah, Dad is a pain right now about those taxes things, too. Cat Couch tells me that she "tunes him out" when he gets bad. In fact, she sent him to the basement to do the taxes stuff.

Patches, our mom knows how you feel. Dad's company got sold last year, so he "made" twice as much money as the previous year. But mom is pissed because the taxes are SEVEN times as much as the previous year. She thought it was six (which was bad enough) until she started doing them and realized that no, it's seven. On top of that, Dad isn't employed yet (we're keeping our paws crossed - he's looking!). So writing a big fat check to that uncle sam guy is irking her something fierce.

Mom says if taxes keep goin up, she'll send Bonnie to the IRS, an that'll teach em. She said she had some blockheads do the taxes for a few years an it helped, but now things got complicated cuz she bought stock (cattle? where?!) an maybe the blockheads can't do em. She also had to wait for one paper an couldn't start early. So she doesn't wanna fink bout it yet.

Mom says the boy was "due" April 14, so she knew she shoulda done taxes early. Instead, she waited an the boy was born April 10, and she spended the nite of April 14 finishing the taxes steada sleepin. She said the man's good for lotsa fings, but not taxes. If I meets this Uncle Sam, I gotta few hisses and growls for him. Hmph.

Wm is entirely correct. When cats rule the world, things will change!
When will that be?
Yes, in the meantime, a tax cut for our humans will leave more $$ for feathers, glitter balls & important stuff.
