BREAKING: Obama To Simplify Tax Code

The Internal Revenue Service announced today that, under the direction of the Obama Administration, beginning in 2010 filing your income tax return will be dramatically simplified. Gone will be all the confusing schedules, work sheets and 100-page instruction books. They will be replaced by a single form, Schedule O, with only two lines to fill out. The first line reads: How much did you earn in [2010]? The second line reads: Send it in.


The IRS, hoping to improve its image, also unveiled its new public relations campaign centering on its new motto, “From each according to his abilities to each according to his needs”.


Thanks to the personal benevolence of President Obama, all individual needs will be assessed and met out of the revenues collected to insure parity in the name of fairness.
