Taxes be gone!

Having spent last night getting the bugs out of my tax returns, I'm sick of the whole subject. In the early 90's, some of my buddies concocted a joke write-in candidacy for me against our RINO congresswoman Connie "Commie" Morella, until I pointed out that even joke write-in candidacies for federal employees are barred by the Hatch Act. One of my planks was a flat tax. A tax of 8% "to starve the Leviathan." So I've always had a big laugh at this shortened tax form, for which hat tips go to, oh, about a gazillion places on the internet. I've seen it in a couple of different formats, but you'll get the point.
