Tribune: Bad tax joke(s) of the week

Your tax jokes are better than ours, so please keep them coming!  Here are a few that you submitted this week.

My friend bought a 12-inch ruler and asked me if he could deduct it for tax purposes. I told him not any longer.

My friend asked if I could help him get a tax deduction by delivering a bunch of old magazines to the local Goodwill. I told him that I couldn’t because of back issues.

Every year my friend asks if he can deduct the cost of his jogging shoes for tax purposes. It’s a running joke.
