New TaxMan Recording

Posted by taxguru on June 21, 2007

As loyal readers know, I’m a fan of collecting as many different versions of George Harrison’s classic TaxMan song as I happen to come across.  Well, I accidentally found a new one, recorded on 5/5/07 at a benefit concert at OSU in Corvallis, Oregon. 

I just happened to be browsing the newest additions to the Live Music Archive and saw this concert called The Dark Side of Abbey Road.  It was a live performance combining the songs from two classic rock albums; the Beatles’ Abbey Road and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon.

After downloading it and starting to play it here in my office, the third track, which is only entitled Encore, had the unmistakable sound of TaxMan; and sure enough, after a lot of teasing, the song was performed in full. 

 The full track is over six minutes long and has some superfluous announcements; so I trimmed it down to just the three minutes with the actual TaxMan song and uploaded my own version to my website.

The entire concert is excellent, so I encourage any Beatles and Pink Floyd fans to download all of it.  You can’t beat the price. It’s free.

IRS has been asked to consider mid-year increase to standard mileage rate – I’m surprised it’s taken this long for someone to request an updating of the per mile rate.  Whether IRS changes the rate or not, it’s a reminder of how important it is to keep track of actual operating costs for each vehicle for the year.  As with just about everything financial, this is very easily done with QuickBooks.
