Steve Martin told the truth, according to anoraks.
You can be a millionaire, except that you might have to pay taxes on the million dollars, because as any anorak will tell you, when Planet Productions Limited was registered to sell airtime on February 25, 1964, the ship; the broadcasting equipment; the ship's crew; the disc jockeys; the land office address and everything else was bought and paid for, and all someone had to do was register a sales company and begin raking in the money.
Who paid for this wonderful arrangement?
The arrangement whereby a business had been created and handed to a sales company to begin making money for themselves.
Who paid for the business that allowed the sales people to make money?
What a wonderful world sang Louis, and he was right, wasn't he boys and girls?
Correction, make that daydreaming old geezers who call themselves anoraks.
You really do have to find your own million dollars (or pounds) before you can pay the taxes on it that you will owe, unless of course, like Steve Martin you don't have a million dollars and therefore you don't owe taxes on the million dollars that you don't have.
What does this mean?
Ask Paul Rusling, he wrote a bible about all this and his "Sir Hans Knot" says you should read it every day.
Maybe like Mike Wilson you have read it several times and it still doesn't make sense.
Oh well, Steve Martin was only doing stand-up comedy.
What was Paul Rusling doing?
Stealing from others and hoping to rake in his own million dollars or pounds or some form of currency.
Do you wonder if he paid taxes on it?
