The month of April is a nightmare for anyone with a conscience, as we only have until “tax day” – which usually falls on April 15 – to give the taxman what he says he deserves. So if you pay taxes to Uncle Sam and you’re also aware you’re paying for mass murder in the Middle East and in U.S. streets due to the drug war, you should also feel sick to your stomach as you write that check.
To a restaurant customer, this may have served as enough incentive to remind his server that taxation is always immoral — but he didn’t stop there.
Last week, a customer at a Missouri restaurant gave the waitress a “personal gift” instead of a tip, writing the now popular line “Taxation is theft” in the tip section of the receipt.
In a second note, the fiscally conscious customer added:
“This is not a tip. This is a personal gift and not subject to federal or state income taxes.”
