Fun Quotes to Take Your Mind Off Tax Season

Even Albert Einstein admitted that taxes were complicated when he said, "The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax." So, while you’re buried in papers, receipts and tax forms, sit back, take a breather and enjoy what other famous people have had to say about taxes:
