WATCH THE TAX RETURN YOU FILE

As the deadline draws near for filing extended 2011 personal tax returns, I thought an admonition appropriate.

WATCH THE TAX RETURN YOU FILE
(To tune of “What a Difference a Day Made,” by Maria Mendes Grever and Stanley Adams, made famous by singer Dinah Washington)

Watch the tax return you file
Watch what you put inside it
You’ve earned income, don’t hide it
Report every line true
I’m warning you

Think that big windfall you’ll shelter?
That tax law’s helter-skelter?
Think again, you will swelter
In the heat of a jam
A tax exam

Will happen, then you
May find grief to your menu
Watch the tax return you file
Because, they’re watching you
