    Wacky Middletown Tax Official Gets Busted For Putting Jokes on Tax Forms

    This may be the only government official who has a sense of humor about taxes.

    Tax official suspended over tax form joke

    MIDDLETOWN, Ohio -- The city's tax superintendent has been suspended without pay for a week for trying to inject some humor in the city income tax filing instructions.

    The attempt at humor by Linda Stubbs was called "misguided" by city Finance Director John Lyons.

    The forms -- with such lines as, "If we can tax it, we will," -- were sent last week to all Middletown businesses and residents who pay city income tax.

    Lyons said revised forms were sent out immediately at a cost to taxpayers of about $5,500.

    Among the lines that city officials didn't think were very funny was this one:

    "Free advice: if you don't have a profit in a five-year period, you might want to consider another line of work."

    Middletown is about 25 miles northeast of Cincinnati.

    Touché. Reminds me of the kind of snarky humor you'd find in an SNL skit. Not really my cup of tea, either.

    Maybe that's why she was suspended.
