    Thinking of the unthinkable, just shows how desperate the tax office is. But I doubt they dare to put M in the pamphlet for Muslims.

    I have to ask, do we think Jesus paid taxes, I thought he just went round preaching, curing lepers and feeding the 5000, you cannot quote Buddha he just sat around meditating,

    If Jesus were alive today, anything he got including charitable donation must be declared. It's still debatable if he can claim it as religious donation and thus tax exempt, being an upstart religion and all. Anyone knows if the Scientology or LDS church pay taxes on their income?

    Here is the Muslim version of the brochure, it quotes both the Quran and the prophet.

    I had to do a quick google to make sure I remember correctly, but Jesus was asked about paying taxes to the government the people didn't like:

    -Mark 12

    You know, all you have to do with that thread title - Jesus and Taxes - is switch the "a" and the "e" in the final word, and you also have a very fine discussion topic. :)
