All are taxed!
8 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With mention of booming business for construction people, there's also bad news too. The government has raised the property taxes (sound familiar?) and everyone suffers. The guest stars in this show is a German family who just moved into the area. He wasn't aware when he bought the house that there was a lot of unpaid taxes on it. He has to pay the back taxes or get out!

My favorite part of this episode is Harriet Olsen scenes. I loved how she opened the mail as she talked about the fairness of taxes until she realized that even SHE has to be taxed! But the funniest part of the entire episode was the scene of Mr. and Mrs. Olsen in the church/school house. Harried was so prideful that she had to make sure the auditor (played by William Scharlett from the Patty Duke show and another timeless character actor) knew just how much they had. That was classic Olsen comic relief.

The lesson in this episode was an important one. We do gripe and complain a lot, but even today we have a lot more freedom than many other countries do and we should think are stripes and stars for the things we have!

Indecently, Mary made a flag, but I don't recall ever seeing it again after this one episode...
