Summer Vacation Destinations For IRS Agents....Warning....May Cause Laughter

Updated on February 10, 2014

Are you an IRS agent?

See results

Tax folks, this article is for you! I salute you for the fine job you do each and every day. You are the guardians of the United States tax system and heaven knows where this country would be without your unfailing sense of justice!

For you there are no colors in the world. Everything is black and white, scripted by that Great Tax Code in the Sky, and words cannot properly reflect how I feel about you.

To show my appreciation for the hose job….err…job that you do, I have compiled a list of destinations that I think you might like to visit for your next vacation. Please, don’t try to thank me! This is the very least I can do to pay you back for the years you have dedicated to my well-being.

So pack your bags, get that limousine of yours serviced, and head out on the open road to any of these great vacation spots.

INTERCOURSE, ALABAMA

The American public has been taking it in the shorts from you for so long that I thought it was about time you experienced the same sensation. In beautiful Intercourse, Alabama, you will be able to get a free CEO Burger at the Bend Over Café. These burgers are made from 100% pork belly and they are guaranteed to end up in the toilet just like our hard-earned tax dollars.

DEAD HORSE, ALASKA

There is nothing quite like beating a dead horse, similar in many ways to refusing deductions for a working stiff who can barely provide for his family. You will love this place! Every Friday night they feature the Debtors Prison Dance just outside the county jail. Cost of the dance and refreshments is 25% of your income but hey, you work for the government, so for you it’s all free. In fact, and you will love this, if you attend before April of 2013, the proceeds from the dance will be handed over to you, no questions asked. Is this a great country or what?

NOTHING, ARIZONA

A little known fact: Nothing, Arizona, was incorporated as a town in honor of the IRS, so this is the perfect vacation spot for you. You will love the carnival right outside of town, held every Saturday. Watch the locals play the carnival games. No matter how hard they play and no matter how well they do, they walk away with nothing. In fact, when the carnival closes, you’ll walk away a big winner.

After the carnival spend the night at the Corporation Inn. Of course it’s all free; those guys who run the inn owe you big time for your years of service helping them make bigger profits.

ROBIN HOOD, MAINE

Enjoy the show at the Tax Dodge Theater. They have the longest playing off-Broadway show in the nation, appropriately called “Robin Hood Guilty of Tax Evasion.” It’s’ a great spoof on modern society and you are sure to enjoy it because your sense of humor is the stuff of legends. Have a cocktail at the Al Capone Lounge before the show.

HELL, MICHIGAN

Well guys and gals, you have put us all through hell so there is no reason why you shouldn’t visit there yourselves. We have reserved a special suite for you at the Zero Tolerance Hotel. As you are approaching this great vacation spot, keep driving past Limbo, ten more miles and past Purgatory and go straight to Hell. We’ll leave the light on for you.

ARM, MISSISSIPPI

You are going to love this town! Visit the Arm and a Leg Museum and view the great displays of former tax evaders who thought they could sneak one by you. Buy some trinkets at the Strong Arm Tactics Emporium, and get those kinks worked out at the Twist Your Arm Chiropractic Center. Don’t worry about paying for any of this. We all know you have more than enough exemptions so let us pay for you.

FORT CROOK, NEBRASKA

This entire town is run by former CEO’s of Fortune 500 fame, so don’t bother to tip for any of the services. Take the whole family to the Top 1% Theme Park. One particularly scary ride takes you past a very life-like volcano where the town leaders sacrifice some poor working stiff to the profit gods. The screams are so real they will give you chills….or maybe not….you do have ice water flowing through your veins so maybe this won’t affect you.

All of the goods and products in this town are shipped from China and take special note that there are no workers here from the United States. Talk about international love! Makes you proud to be an American, doesn’t it?

SLAUGHTERVILLE, OKLAHOMA

This is such a cool town! Sure it’s out in the middle of nowhere but it is oh so worth the extra driving to get there. Make sure you take the walking tour around town and take some pictures of the different statues that commemorate the average Americans who were financially crippled and then slaughtered by the tax laws.

There is a re-enactment each night in the town square. Promptly at eight there is a gang of citizens dressed as IRS agents and they systematically gun down single mothers and retired folks. It is all in fun and the crowds love it, but get there early to get a good seat.

FINGER, TENNESSEE

Finger, Tennessee, salutes you. In fact, as you drive into town, you will notice every citizen standing on the side of the road saluting you in that quaint way they have of raising their middle fingers. When you leave town they will do the same thing. Don’t you feel special? That’s because you are, and the citizens of Finger, Tennessee, want to make sure you know it.

Just a suggestion, and I’m kind of hoping you don’t take it: make sure you don’t eat or drink anything in this town. Those rascally residents of Finger like to playfully slip Ex-Lax into the food and beverages of IRS agents. Makes for a smooth move out of town but you might find it a bit of a discomfort.

LITTLE HOPE, TEXAS

You might as well visit Little Hope and feel what the rest of us feel. You can pick up some snacks at the Down and Out Quick Shop, and spend the night at the Hooverville B & B. Try your luck at the Destitute Casino but don’t expect to win.

There is a great role-playing game nightly at the Sad Sack Gaming Parlor. You can dress up like a factory worker and beg for scraps in an exact replica of Detroit. There is also an online game you can try out; in it, you play an unemployed parent of four, and you call Social Services and keep being put on hold. Great family entertainment for sure.

I HAVE RUN OUT OF TIME AND PATIENCE

Listen, I would love to give you more suggestions, but I’ve been on hold now for an hour and I’m getting a little peevish! I’m not sure what the problem is; I mean, I’m only three months late on my tax returns and you guys promptly call and want your payment. I have a doctor friend who hasn’t paid taxes in ten years….HELLO????....ten years?

Oh, wait, I have a live agent on the phone….I’ll let you listen in…..shhhh

“Mr. Holland, we understand you haven’t paid your 2011 taxes yet. We see you owe $58.76 and we were wondering what the problem is? You have to understand, Mr. Holland, that we have that money earmarked for special projects and you are jeopardizing those projects by being late. We are having a special State Dinner for the leading politicians from China. We need to borrow another $20 billion from them and we’d like to kiss their collective ass before we ask. So you see, we really need your $58.76 to buy some appetizers.”

Sigh! I think I’ll go stand in line in Finger, Tennessee, and wait for an IRS employee to drive into town.

      It is extremely hard to type when you are rolling on the floor laughing! I have to agree with Curiad, "keep driving past Limbo, ten more miles and past Purgatory and go straight to Hell" is the best, though it is hard to pick a best in this one! Cheers to Bev for her research, if you're quiet you can hear the crowds cheering.

      Keep it up Bill you are bringing laughter to thousands!

      Voted a grand slam for this one and sharing with my readers.

      Good for you. Give em hell! This is great and I hope you don't mind but I was so impressed that I printed it out and sent it on to the folks at IRS. I wanted to make sure you got the credit due so I was sure to include your name and address.

      No thanks needed. What are friends for?

      (Excellent - and YES - it was an inspiring PMP moment!)

      Everything from the locations to the conversation at the end along with the questions - I love your humor. It is unique, fresh and always provides many laughs.

      Hi Bill,

      "As you are approaching this great vacation spot, keep driving past Limbo, ten more miles and past Purgatory and go straight to Hell. We’ll leave the light on for you." That is very neighbourly of the folks of Hell Michigan to leave the light on. ;-)

      LMAO!

      I'll keep my eyes peeled, Bill. Here's a breaking newsflash from STL. Five young people, ages 14 to early 20's, were just found shot. A cop saw them standing in a group, thought it looked odd and called for backup. When they got to the location, all five were down with one in critical condition now. My sis might want to move back here. It never gets boring. NOT......

      Bill this is great. I definately laughed. BTW, one year when my son was in Kindergarten and I could count his school tuition on my taxes, I was audited because they thought he was in COLLEGE. DUH, his birthdate was on the form. Right on front. I know he's smart, but a 5 year old college student...It took me months to iron that one out as they imposed interest on the back taxes I was supposed to owe. AMAZING!!!

      You gave me one hell of a vicarious thrill reading this, Bill. My sis, who roughs it in Honolulu, HI in a condo overlooking Diamond Head, is retiring early from the IRS at the start of the new year. She is going to travel the world, as looking at the ocean gets kinda boring day after day. Funny, cause I don't think she mentioned one of your suggestions in her world travel plans. I can't say anymore, Bill, because she knows what hovel I live in...Ssssh

      Way up there and awesome.

      Kelly, that would be a bit unnerving to say the least. Too bad this hadn't been written yet; it would have been so funny to watch them read it.

      Thanks buddy!

      Julie, with the internet anything is possible. Just look for weird names and there they are, although Bev deserves the credit; she did the research on this one. Thank you my friend!

      That's SO funny Bill!

      Right after I moved to my house now...these two dudes came knocking on the door...suits, ties, driving a black big car...mysterious looking! Hmmm I wondered if I should open the door - but since Peanut is a 10 pound attack dog - I did - it was the IRS! OMG! When they showed me their I.D. I'm thinking...what the he'll has my husband DONE! Not paying our taxes?? Omg!

      They were looking for the previous owners! Hahaha! Yay! If I'd read this first - I'd have given them a copy:) lol

      I think this is the funniest of this series to date. I LOVE it! I can imagine all the agents vacationing and swapping stories of terror in Fort Crook.. they probably save their best ones for the annual Christmas dinner. Excellent work and a much needed belly laugh. :)

      People often say death and taxes are the same, but this is wrong. Death is a taxable event, but taxes never die.

      Bill, I cannot believe these place actually exist?

      Laughing all the way...:-)

      Sweetie, been there, done that, ain't going back! Working with the public is challenging on the best of days...and in truth, the IRS has been very easy to work with the times I've had to call them for a problem...but that doesn't keep them safe from my vacation series. :) Thank you!

      This was a fun read. I have a feeling working for the IRS might not be so fun though, and the employees probably get called a lot of names and personally blamed for what IRS itself does. I have known people who worked for cable companies, and people would swear at them, call them names, and thought nothing of it because they were mad they had to pay for TV. This also is true for people who worked for the water company. Working with the public in any capacity opens you up to being the punching bag for a few that take their frustrations out on you.

      Ok, I'll think of some places I can send the tax people in Singapore to. Nothing in Arizona sounds very, very familiar to me! Any idea if the hotels there take reservations? Might drop in a suggestion to them! This was very funny. Thank you.

      Even without cheating, and before reading was thinking of finger, and then you caught up with me. Intercourse? What is the main activity in that city..? We love to hate our friends at the IRS. Now this comment is tax deductible...but not on my AdSense 1099.... So my creativity gets its 12% slash with SEO and all! Thanks for the laugh Billy. Hey colleague, why were you laughing?
