taxes, taxes, taxes!!!!!
4 October 2015 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

This is a very important episode to watch but its not one of my favorites. It is the USA's birthday and its time to celebrate. Everyone is cheerful and Happy until everyone gets letters of the new Tax collectors.Some people were ripped from all their money. One family suffered the most,the newly moved in family the Payatickofs bought a house but the previous owner left them with all the taxes for 7 years.They don't have the money to pay for it so their going to lose the house. Their petrified and everyone pitied them until Mr paytickof teached them a valuable lesson in church. This is a good episode if you look at it like a critic(but not so good for me) It shows how bad it is when your left with the previous owner bad investment on the house.You can lose everything. But between all the seriousness their was a Little sprinkle of humor and who does it involve(*drum roll*). Herriet. When it was time for them to see the tax calculator he asks them questions like how big is you house how many rooms does it have ,is it the largest business in town do you have farm goods etc. It doesn't matter how Nels tries to minimize things Harriet steps in and makes it bigger therefore msking them to pay more. Oh my gosh classic Harriet Please check this one out who knows you might like it.
