• Charter Boat Captain Faces IRS Audit


The IRS suspected a fishing boat owner wasn't paying proper wages to his deckhand and sent an agent to investigate him.

IRS Auditor: "I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them.”

Boat Owner: "Well, there's Clarence, my deckhand, he's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $1,000 a week plus free room and board.

"Then there's the mentally challenged guy. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of Bacardi rum and a dozen Budweisers every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also gets to sleep with my wife occasionally.”

IRS Auditor: "That's the guy I want to talk to...the mentally challenged one.”

Boat Owner: "That's me. What would you like to know?”
