I'D HAVE DONE IT FOR ONLY $75,000

February 25, 2008

The TaxProf reports that former baseball player Lennie Dykstra is contesting a tax prep fee for his 2006 tax returns of $111,097. As a tax preparer, my first thought is "that's outrageous!" My second thought is, maybe that's what I would have charged him.

I never liked Mr. Dykstra as a player, not least because he played for Beezlebub's Team. The fee makes me think of the cartoon that shows a barber shop with a price list - "Haircut, $10. Shave, $5. Nose hair trim, $10,000." For the right price, you'll expand your range of services.

Russ Fox is also on the story.
