Media Appearance

Your humble blogger has made a media appearance on Politico.com:

"Tax oddities live on amid budget impasse"

The U.S. government will give you a tax break for buying college football tickets.
And hunting whales. And if you happen to be a foreign professional golfer. Or a college professor. Or if you get divorced.
...
Other provisions would seem to be obsolete. A Cold War-era law allows communists to avoid paying the Social Security tax (they don’t get benefits either). That came after congressional outrage over reports that a jailed communist had continued to receive Social Security checks, said Libin Zhang, a tax lawyer.

“Obviously, that’s not as big of issue nowadays, but the statutory provision is still there,” he said.
