Editor’s Note

In my second to last edition of the Cal Tax Network Newsletter, I thought it might be fun to mix it up and share some tax quotes to brighten the read:

“The difference between tax avoidance and tax evasion is the thickness of a prison wall.”

– Denis Healey

“The hardest thing to understand in the world is the income tax.”

– Albert Einstein

“Next to being shot at and missed, nothing is really quite as satisfying as an income tax refund.”

– F. J. Raymond, humorist

“When there is an income tax, the just man will pay more and the unjust less on the same amount of income.”

– Plato

“The income tax created more criminals than any other single act of government.”

– Barry Goldwater

“People who complain about taxes can be divided into two classes: men and women.”

– Unknown

Taxation with representation ain’t so hot either.”

– Gerald Barzan

“For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?”

– Jesus Christ
