Actual 'Letter to the Editor' from the February 5th edition of the Wichita 
Falls, Texas Times Record News, which was quite funny.

Dear IRS,

I am sorry to inform you that I will not be able to pay taxes owed April 
15, but all is not lost.

I have paid these taxes: accounts receivable tax, building permit tax, CDL 
tax, cigarette tax, corporate income tax, dog licence tax, federal income 
tax, unemployment tax, gasoline tax, hunting licence tax, fishing licence 
tax, waterfowl stamp tax, inheritance tax, inventory tax, liquor tax, 
luxury tax, medicare tax, city, school and county property tax (up 33 
percent last 4 years), real estate tax, social security tax, road usage 
tax, toll road tax, state and city sales tax, recreational vehicle tax, 
state franchise
tax, state unemployment tax, telephone federal excise tax, telephone 
federal state and local surcharge tax, telephone minimum usage surcharge 
tax, telephone state and local tax, utility tax, vehicle licence 
registration tax, capitol gains tax, lease severance tax, oil and gas 
assessment tax, Colorado property tax, Texas, Colorado, Wyoming, Oklahoma 
and New Mexico sales tax, and many more that I can't recall but I have run 
out of space and money.

When you do not receive my check April 15, just know that it is an honest 
mistake. Please treat me the same way you treated Congressmen Charles 
Rangle, Chris Dodd, Barney Frank and ex-Congressman Tom Dashelle and, of 
course, your boss Timothy Geithner. No penalties and no interest.

P.S. I will make at least a partial payment as soon as I get my stimulus check.
