The Only Certainties in Life: Death and Taxes

Life's Certainties: Death and Taxes

Every industry has a few cliches or familiar phrases to contend with, and tax accountants are no exception.

The quote “”The Only Two Certainties In Life Are Death And Taxes”” is thought to have originated in a 1789 letter from Benjamin Franklin to Jean-Baptiste Leroy, a prominent French scientist – long before being popularised by Mark Twain. Truth be told, the sentiment appeared earlier in Daniel Defoe’s ‘The History of the Devil’, c1726: “”Things as certain as Death and Taxes can be more firmly believ’d.””

Well, 295 years have passed since, and yes, both Mr Defoe and Mr Franklin were right: Taxes are a certainty in our modern lives.
