CDL tax, cigarette tax, corporate income tax, dog licence tax, federal
income tax, unemployment tax, gasoline tax, hunting licence tax,
fishing licence tax, waterfowl stamp tax, inheritance tax, inventory

property tax (up 33 percent last 4 years), real estate tax, social
security tax, road usage tax, toll road tax, state and city sales tax,

When you do not receive my check April 15, just know that
it is an honest mistake. Please treat me the same way you treated
Congressmen Charles Rangle, Chris Dodd, Barney Frank and ex-Congressman Tom Dashelle and, of course, your boss Timothy Geithner. No penalties
and no interest.

P.S. I will make at least a partial payment as soon as I get my stimulus check.
