Teens...and Taxes?

The Massachusetts Department of Revenue has issued a new video focusing on teens who, if they work at a summer job or on the weekends, must "learn what taxes are all about" and "need a few basics" about them before they spend that first paycheck at the mall. According to the DOR, this video is designed to "educate" adolescents about why it is paramount for them to get an early start on their tax filings.

From the state agency's website:

That’s right; it’s probably not the first thing teens are thinking about. But teenagers work too — even if only at an after-school, weekend or summer job. And like everybody else, they need to know the basics to understand how their tax system works.

With that in mind, DOR announces the first release in a new “Teens ‘n’ Taxes” video series designed to educate teenagers about their tax responsibilities. The first video is set on a teenager’s first day on the job — and discusses the Form W-4, Employee Withholding Allowance Certificate, she needs to fill out.

As part of the department’s mission to educate younger residents about the tax system, Teens ‘n’ Taxes — like the successful DORM (Department of Revenue Media) video series for college students, — will be distributed to Massachusetts schools and posted on YouTube, Twitter and other social networking sites.

The vile state wants to get its dirty paws on our youth, who already know how tyrannical, oppressive, and villainous this political beast is. Now these youngsters will be slaves to the diabolical regime as well.

After all, isn't that what "equal tyranny for all" is all about?

Here's the aforementioned YouTube in question:
