## Your Finances by the Numbers

1 = the number of times a year you should review your retirement portfolio.

5% = the maximum percentage of your take-home pay that you should owe to credit-card companies.

10% = the minimum amount of your pretax income that you should save fore retirement.

10 times your gross income = the minimum amount of life insurance you should buy.

28% = the share of your pretax monthly income that should go towards housing cost.

120 - your age = the maximum percentage of your retirement savings that should be in stocks of stock mutual funds.

## Funny Tax Return

There was a man who made his tax returns promptly and properly only to find that he owed the IRS \$3,407.00. He packaged his payment and included this letter:

Dear IRS,
Enclosed is my tax return and payment. Please take note of the attached article from the USA Today newspaper. In the article, you will see that the Pentagon is paying \$171.50 for hammers & NASA has paid \$600.00 for a toilet seat.

Please fine enclosed 4 toilet seats (value \$2400) & 6 hammers (value \$1029). This brings my total payment to \$3,429.00. Please note the overpayment of \$22 and apply it to he Presidential Election Fund as noted on my tax return. Might I suggest you then send the above mentioned fund a 1.5 inch screw (see attached article-HUD paid \$22 for a 1.5 inch Phillips Head Screw).

It has been my pleasure to pay my tax bill this year and look forward to paying it again next year. I have just read an article about the Pentagon & "screwdrivers".

Sincerely,
Disgruntled Tax Payer
