“There are only two things that are certain on Halloween: candy and taxes,” they explain at the Letterfolk website. “Few teaching moments are better suited for helping your children learn about hard work, sweet rewards, and having said rewards taxed and consumed by their overlords. And it’s only appropriate that you, their parent, should help them understand these valuable lessons.
The Halloween candy tax form states that it’s “universally approved by parents” and “one hundred percent legal,” just in case your kids give you the side eye about its validity. You can tally up your kids’ sweets by chocolate and fruity confection and apply the following formula to calculate your due: your child’s age equals their tax bracket. Multiply candies by tax bracket and there you go, parents—your candy tax payment.
