“It was after I got my first job and looked at my first paycheck and saw how much I was losing in taxes, that’s when I decided to become a Republican.” So goes a refrain so common as to be part of the American Myth.


Enjoy paying your taxes.


“Taxman” is a song written by George Harrison and released as the opening track on the Beatles’ 1966 album Revolver. Its lyrics attack the high levels of progressive tax taken by the British Labour government of Harold Wilson.
