To commemorate income tax day1 and the big ol' check I had to write to the IRS2 I made this. If you have the brain of a 13-year-old boy like I do, I'm sure you entered these five digits into your calculator at least once while filling out your 1040s.

I'm going to need to take this apart and re-mount it. I don't know how that ugly crease got in there, but it's a terrible eyesore to me. I wonder though, should I put it back together upside down when I do so? For whatever reason it seems this is most commonly represented by 58008 with the instructions to "turn the calculator upside down." Too obscure?

1Here in the U.S. of A.
2No one warned me that I would need to fill out my W4 form differently once I got married.

A)  This is hilarious.  I love the simplicity.  Could you mount it in something non-hanging?  It seems to me that would encourage people to flip it over.  (Yeah, I always heard it as 58008 and flip it upside-down too.)

B)  We had the same problem when we got married.  Except we changed ours to "married" instead of "married, withhold as single" which is why we ended up paying in.  Stupid red tape....

Great job!

I love it. Interesting thought about having it upside down... right side up? I kind of like the idea of flipping it, myself. Either way, this is great.  Smiley

You're gonna have to break away from needlework and make a mount for your frame. Bolt it to the wall so the frame is slightly floating and can be rotated at the viewers' hearts content!!!

Boo for tax status changes that require sending in a check. A nickles worth of free advice: that's why I dont bother with all that crazy tax stuff*

*Unless you're reading this from your office at the IRS. Then it's in the mail
