I is for IRS

In other words, I'm doing taxes today, so don't have time to write a full post!
But here's one historical tidbit for you:
Did you know that the founding government of the United States instituted the lottery as a way of funding the government without imposing taxes? (After all, they'd just fought a revolution to be free of taxation...)
I've never bought a lotto ticket in my life. But if the IRS decides to switch back to that method of funding, I'll be the first in line.

  1. I would too! Seriously what happened to simplifying the tax system. It's way too confusing now...

  2. You're kidding! That is a very interesting tidbit. I'd miss my guaranteed tax return, though. Having so many kids has its benefits. Ha ha! :)

  3. I sympathize. Hope you get a big refund.
