The Taxation Office recently sent an agent out to get follow up information on a situation that needed clarification! The Taxation Office suspected that a fishing boat owner wasn’t paying proper wages to his deckhand. Here is how that meeting went.
Taxation AUDITOR: ” I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them”.
Boat Owner: “Well, there’s Clarence, my deckhand, he’s been with me for 3 years. I pay him $1,000 a week plus free room and board. Then there’s the mentally challenged guy. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of Bundaberg rum and a dozen Crown Lagers every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also gets to sleep with my wife occasionally”.
Taxation AUDITOR: “That’s the guy I want to talk to – the mentally challenged one”.
Boat Owner: “That’d be me. How can I help you?”
