George Harrison’s classic song “TaxMan” has long been a motivating force for many of us in this profession. Even though it was intended to be somewhat satirical, with examples of ridiculous taxes that couldn’t possibly come true, some of our Big Government Rulers have always seen that as a challenge, such as in this section of the song. 

If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street
If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat
If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat
If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet

I couldn’t help but think of that when I saw this news story from the Left Coast, where eventually nothing will be left untaxed.
