Putting The Bitch Tits Tax O-Meter To Bed

All Good Things Come To An End

In a Phil Mickelson pre-tournament presser last year, Phillip opened his mouth to the media about his effective tax rate, talked about possibly moving out of California because of it, and perhaps even playing less tour golf to avoid such taxes. We all know the story by now. To tease and ridicule Philly Mick I tallied up the amount he said he would be taxed based on the tax rate he quoted for all of 2013.

With this reckless thought the Bitch Tits Tax O-Meter was born. Phil had a great year, perhaps he write me a thank you letter for inspiring him. He won in Phoenix. He won in Scotland. And of course, he won the Open Championship. He also won my Player of the Year Award. For his efforts he will pay $3,503,628.93 in taxes. That’s astonishing, but most of us would love to have the same problem. Now that W2s are rolling out and people are filing their own taxes, I’m putting the Tax O-meter to bed. Good night sweet prince.

For now Phil’s flub will be replaced by a countdown clock for the Masters. After that, who knows? Stay tuned.
