Funniest Tax Return Ever?

I was going through some of my starred emails in Gmail, trying to clear out the old and irrelevant ones, and the last one in my list was from my brother. A few years ago, he filed his taxes and got a funny looking picture that I wanted to share with you.

He was working as a research assistant while pursuing his Ph.D in Computer Science while his wife was a medical student. On tax forms, there are only so many spaces for job descriptions, so when it printed his form, it only displayed the first 12 characters:

I still think it’s hilarious (it describes them perfectly) and will be keeping this one for awhile.

    Just to make sure people get it – they did not list their occupations that way – they spelled out their occupations. It was the IRS that shortened and referred to them as a stud and an ass.

    Funny stuff.

    I actually had a tax return like that for my first ever job. I worked as a private lesson instructor for a martial arts school, and so I was listed as a Karate Assistant. Of course, when I got the return, it said I was a Karate Ass.
