The Ides of April - Time to give it to Caesar

Updated: Apr 14, 2020

Amended Return: The Ides of April - Time to give it to Caesar


Due to the 15th falling on a weekend, I got an extension. I had meant to add the Beatles Tax Man to the earlier email. The link is located below under the “IRS Mathematics” section. I had found the song when I was doing the music email and it inspired me to do a tax-themed project.


It’s that time again – the Ides of April – time to face the music.

Hopefully, this humor will leave you laughing all the way FROM the bank.

Rock-Folks provide a musical formula that shows how paying taxes leads to freedom (huh?)

Dylan tells us, “When you got nothing…you got nothing to lose.”

At this point, Janis says you’re free because…”Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.”

See the next item for a simple way to get to this freedom.

1 for you, 1 for me… 2 for you, 1 2 for me… 3 for you, 1 2 3 for me…

This reminds me of the following rent skit I saw many, many, many years ago:

Abbott & Costello-7x13 =28

Tax Man – Beatles

--this live version is in ¼ time as it features only 1 of the 4 Beatles (George). It also includes a very special guitarist…

--“1 for you, 19 for me…” (more IRS math)
