On Albert Einstein and Tax Forms

I want to add a follow up note to my post, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are Far From the Only Very Successful School Dropouts.

Albert Einstein had a cousin, Norbert Einstein, who was a pretty good free market economist.

Bettina Bien-Greaves once told me that Norbert said to her that Albert was completely befuddled by IRS income tax forms.

  1. I read a quote of Einstein's somewhere where he (supposedly) said something like: tax returns are not a job for a mathematician, they require a philosopher.
