THE TAX CODE
With the recent return of taxes, there has been an uproar over their application and daily cries of anguish over the forfeiture of groats. I submitted various schedules and suggestions to Hazed to improve the application of the taxes. After a thorough review of my suggestions, Hazed complimented me on my articulate presentation and artful presentation of the supporting data. Hazed informed me however, that she was bound by the Tax Code, and could not adopt my suggestions.
Realizing that inherent in any Tax Code are loopholes, I ventured into the Galactic Administration building. Deep in the archives, on a top shelf, I found a dusty volume of the Galactic Tax Code. The single volume I found was a summary. The actual tax code is too voluminous to be stored in the Administration Building on Earth. It is to be found on the planet Archival, and takes up three continents and one archipelago.
Blowing off the dust I began reading.
I began to skim over the sections. This was all too familiar to me. I needed to find out how to avoid the tax. Then a section caught my eye.
Eureka! This could be it. I blew the dust off the page, and began studying the section in depth.
Hmmmm... Ok, this will not do. I continued to read.
I stopped reading, and sighed. I replaced the volume on the shelf, and got out my checkbook. Writing, "Pay to the Order of IRS..." I paid my taxes for that day.
