Tax Day

An Open Letter To the State of Maine:

Dear Sirs and Madams,

My husband and I owe a little over $100 in taxes to the State of Maine. The check is made out and I was just getting ready to take it to the post office. Then I remembered something: It is legal for TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families / a.k.a. welfare) recipients to purchase alcohol and tobacco products with their welfare / a.k.a. my tax money. I think I’ll save myself a stamp and buy my TANF-receiving neighbor a couple carton of Marlboros and a half gallon of Allens from the store down the road. That should make us square.

  1. I think the government will really like this letter. The IRS is known for its terrific sense of humor.

    I totally relate to your annoyance. The whole welfare money to buy cigarettes and booze, really frosts my cookies.
