The Tax Atturkey Has Arrived.

0 Flares 0 Flares ×


As our avid Summary Opinions readers will know, my six year old daughter was working on a school project creating Thanksgiving decorations on Sunday, including a turkey caricature of me, which she dubbed the “Tax Atturkey”.  Needless to say, I was fairly proud.  I was also happy my six year old went with the bespoke green suit, blue paisley tie,  and fancy handcrafted briefcase.  My nine year old daughter and wife had suggested the Tax Atturkey needed “dorky” glasses, a poorly fitting gray suit, and a pocket protector.

The demand for a photo of the Tax Atturkey has been through the roof (two people mentioned it to me), and I am happy to oblige our readership with the above photo.

    A terrific drawing! One hopes the IRS will not seek to assign a stratospheric value to this artwork when your estate return is filed.

Comment Policy: While we all have years of experience as practitioners and attorneys, and while Keith and Les have taught for many years, we think our work is better when we generate input from others. That is one of the reasons we solicit guest posts (and also because of the time it takes to write what we think are high quality posts). Involvement from others makes our site better. That is why we have kept our site open to comments.

If you want to make a public comment, you must identify yourself (using your first and last name) and register by including your email. If you do not, we will remove your comment. In a comment, if you disagree with or intend to criticize someone (such as the poster, another commenter, a party or counsel in a case), you must do so in a respectful manner. We reserve the right to delete comments. If your comment is obnoxious, mean-spirited or violates our sense of decency we will remove the comment. While you have the right to say what you want, you do not have the right to say what you want on our blog.
