Chapter 90: Death and Taxes but Mostly Taxes

It's the most horrible time of the year: when a shadowy figure darkens our doorway with its bony hand extended, asking for our hard earned money...or possibly our souls. Maybe both, we're not sure, and we'll probably have to file a 1040X because we messed up and used a childcare credit when we meant to say that we're rotting sacks of meat and for the love of God, please end our misery on this fiery trash heap we call Earth. We have little say in either collection, and the Repo Man comes for us all. Might as well let him hear our full-throated screams of protest as we're dragged off to debtor's prison or the eternal DMV lobby of the afterlife. Just like our forefathers wanted.
