The IRS Trick-Or-Treater

Halloween. The door bell rings and a man answers it. Here stands this plain but well dressed kid, saying, “Trick or Treat!”

The man asks the kid what he is dressed up as. The kid replies, “I’m an IRS agent.”

Then he takes 40 percent of the man’s candy, leaves, and doesn’t say thank you.
