Poem about Tax Free Tips Act of 2011

Tax Free Tips Act of 2011

 Why tax tips, aren’t they a gift?

Doesn’t this make you miffed?

Bill in place to correct farce.

Supporters for it are sparse.

Introduced to committee

There to sit, such a pity.

June Nash

This has always been a sore spot of mine.  I would like to see the gifts I leave, for those who serve me well, accepted as gifts which they are intended to be.

Service-industry workers, who are often underpaid and overworked, are also overtaxed.  Tax Free Tips Act of 2011 was introduced into committee where it will likely die a lonely death from inaction.
