The best way to teach your kids about taxes is by eating 30% of their ice cream.

LoL... Now that's some funny s**t!
I'd also add about 30-40% of their allowance to the mix.
Sounds like he just met with his accountant re 2013. It also sounds like he needs a different accountant. He should get lots of offers from proe with a strategy after that tweet!
Google "Bill Murray" and strange things and "no one will ever believe you". This man is awesome. He loves to grab random, fun looking strangers that treat him as a human, not as some celeb curio, and then take them out to party. Or just walk up to random people, do funny and strange things (the drinking the wine from the couple is my fave) and tell them "No One Will Believe You" and walk off into the night. He loves his celebrity, and uses it to have fun, and help people he likes to have fun. The story of how he met a guy at a bar that just came up and said "hey" and took him on a whirlwind night is amazing. Unlike most celebs- stuck up, arrogant, ignorant of their good fortune- Bill seems to be awesome. Google "Bill Murray Being Awesome".
edit: Eat 50% of their ice cream...First.
How about the Central Banker Terrorist-Counterfeiter's inflation tax?
Take 30% of their ice cream and then tell them that you will protect them from bullies. Then instead of protecting your child from bullies, pick fights with everyone in the ice cream shop that you don't like.
inflation tax - let the last half melt away in the sun.
LOL... awesome comment! Yes, watch it all melt away.
Hyper inflation tax - Ice Cream FlambeOr maybe Ice Cream a la Mugabe.
Take 30% of their ice cream and ask them "How else are we going to build the roads?"
First you must make them work - either chores or whatever job. Then take a large percentage away from them and buy them things that are worth far less and that aren't even relevant to them.
I'm unashamedly taking from everyone's previous work:1. You ask the kids if they would like ice cream and then negotiate a scoop count based on their work. Say, they take out the trash-that's one scoop. They mow the lawn, scoop #2, etc.2. After they've completed their chores you dish out the scoops in a steel colander for them to see, they can't have any scoops yet, but they each get their own colander with their scoops in it.3. Now you take out a progressive amount of scoops based on which child did the most work. The one that has the most scoops get 50% taken out. The one that earned just 1 scoop gets 15% taken out with ranges in between. If a child chose to do no chores, he gets some of the the ice cream taken out from his siblings. Let's say around 20%, the rest of the confiscated ice cream "goes to the house"-it's for the teaching parent to enjoy! Make sure you tell the kids this is for a "civil household society" while you are eating their ice cream.(make sure the house ice cream is in a bowl!)4. After the ice cream in the various colanders has been removed, redistributed, etc. then you give each child a spoon, put each colander on a stove burner set to low and tell them they can now enjoy their ice cream.Sit back and enjoy the lesson!
Oh man that was good. I read the whole thing laughing.

Reminds me of Ron Swanson eating a little girls lunch right in front of her trying to demonstrate what the government does on a daily basis.
