Ah, spring. The chirping of birds, the fresh smell of flowers, the sunny days ... and the sharpening of IRS auditors' knives. Yes, it's that time of year, when you put sum 5a into slot 6b, subtract the lesser of 12z or 11q from 10c, write in "Hell" before the "No" box for the Presidential campaign fund, and send in your hard-earned dollars to ensure the continued operation of the great pork machine.

But anything -- yes, anything -- can be funny. The handful of tax-related jokes collected here should be good for at least a couple of minutes of laughing. Then it's back to the 1040 for you.
