Friday's Tax Quote - October 28, 2011

“Every society makes choices as to the tax systems that not only raise the necessary revenues to support government expenditures, but within that choice are inherent reflections of societal values.  Not only does a society choose a tax system but the tax system becomes one of the basic institutions that in itself shapes and molds the society.”

- Karen M. Yeager

Friday's Tax Quote - October 7, 2011

“I hate taxes
Taxes gonna break my back I swear
Don’t you know I paid a lot more than my share
You know I’m thinkin’ about movin’ somewhere else
But I can’t because I love America too much
Especially California
Yeah I guess I’m gonna have to pay these taxes
If I’m gonna live here.”

- Robert Cray (“1040 Blues”)
