Apparently Some People Filed Tax Returns In Their Pets’ Names

Everyone knows that the IRS makes silly mistakes from time to time, but presuming that the Service employees who look at these tax returns won't be fooled by a 1040 from "First Name: Mr." and "Last Name: Bojangles" seems a little reckless: 

According to an indictment obtained by CBS4, Mathew and Sandra Zuckerman are accused of using their dog and cat’s names to file their taxes. They then allegedly used the savings on a face lift and a cruise.

Whether you're a cat or dog person, this kind of white collar animal cruelty should not be tolerated in our society.
