Here's a fun tax-time story:
Edited on Thu Apr-14-11 02:27 PM by MineralMan
A friend of my wife is separated from her teabagger moron husband, and the divorce is in the works. So, tax time is coming, and soon-to-be-ex-hubby calls her to ask what they're going to do about taxes. She's employed at a regular job, and will get a refund if she files separately. He's self-employed and has skipped all his quarterly payments. He would have had the cash available, but he emptied an account with $12,000 in it to invest in...wait for it...Dinars.

My wife told her friend that she should file separately and tell him to sell his Dinars and take his profits. :rofl:


I just love tax time!

Dinars - You can always buy, but you can never sell. Their time is surely coming, though. Yes, indeed....

1. Dinars???? what are dinars?
Maybe it is better if I do not know, I won't be tempted to track them.

2. It's the official currency of Iraq. Right now, it's a very active
investment scam, much beloved by teabaggers, who think, for some reason, that the dinar is going to shoot up in value anytime now. They're buying 'em up like nobody's business.

One good thing, though, about investing in Dinars: If there's ever a toilet paper crisis, they'll come in handy for those clever folks, while we're all scrambling for suitable materials.

4. A typo, perhaps?

6. Yah, she does. She had actually already filed separately.
She really did tell him to sell his Dinars.

7. Won't the IRS get after her for the taxes he owes, if he earned the money while they were married?
Or, I should say, if he did not pay the taxes while they were a legal unit?

Happened to a friend of mine. divorced after many years, husband did not pay taxes, they came after her, long after divorce.
