Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 Tax Plan- An IRS Joke

October 14, 2011

A taxpayer was in an IRS office settling his bill and wasn’t very happy with the number the IRS agent showed him.  The taxpayer said a few nasty things that would have gotten him arrested in many other government buildings, but the IRS agent was a patient man and let the taxpayer work through his stages of grief. 

“I’ve had enough!” the taxpayer said.  “I’m voting for Herman Cain.  His 9-9-9 tax plan will put an end to this highway robbery.  He’ll simplify the tax code with a 9 percent sales tax, a 9 percent income tax, and…” 

“He’ll get 9 percent of the vote,” the IRS agent yawned.  “There are too many accountants, lawyers, lobbyists, and government employees tied to the current 5-4-8-4-6 tax plan for it to ever be simplified.” 

“5-4-8-4-6 tax plan?  I’ve never heard of that,” the taxpayer said.  “What does that number stand for?” 

“The 5 stands for the 5 star service that the IRS provides.  The 4 stands for April, the 8 stands for… aw, never mind,” the IRS agent said with a shrug.  “5-4-8-4-6 stands for how many pages are in the tax code.”

    Of course, it would have helped if he hadn’t cheated on his taxes, but still…
