Income Taxes and “Einstein”

Happy Tax Day!

Hope everyone got their paperwork in. We sent off our check a few weeks ago, only to have it return to us with “insufficient postage.” Looks like we have more than one government agency after us.

Here’s a quick etegami I did of an old-fashioned adding machine and the words, “The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax,” attributed to Albert Einstein

 The Quote Investigator says, however, that Einstein probably didn’t say this. It’s certainly not a direct quote from his, work, but a reported statement from a man who was Einstein’s friend and tax accountant.

I’m siding with all of us who hope he said it though — if Einstein had trouble with it, then I shouldn’t feel bad having trouble with it.
