Deli Deductions

Moshe, the owner of a small Kosher New York deli, was being questioned by an IRS agent about his tax return. The Agent was curious because he had reported a net profit of $80,000 for the year.

“Why don’t people leave me alone?” Said the deli owner. “I work like a dog, everyone in my family helps out, the place is only closed for Jewish Holidays and Shabbat. And you want to know how I made $80,000?”

The IRS Agent looked at him and said, “It’s not your income that bothers us. Its these travel deductions. You listed 10 trips to Israel for you and your wife as business expenses.”

Moshe smiles and replies, “Oh, that? Well… We also deliver.”
