That Shakespeare. He truly was well ahead of his time, penning Polonius' famous phrase celebrating succinctness more than four centuries before Twitter.
Now some modern-day tax wits have taken the Bard's words to heart.
The TaxProf challenged his fellow legal academicians to come up with six-word stories about tax.
My favorite: "Really? Money found in piano income," from Ann Murphy of Gonzaga.
Two that shed light on the confusing matter of dependents tied for a close second: "The dog is not a dependent," from Jim Maule of Villanova and "You can't deduct your inner child," from Chris Hoyt of Missouri-Kansas City.
Truth be told, all the six-word tax tales are great, so be sure to check them out, as well as the additions that arrived once the post was published.You can prove that "all the world's a tax stage" by sending your own micro tax saga to the TaxProf and me, too, please, in our posts' comments sections.
