Answering the phone, the priest was surprised to hear the caller introduce herself as an IRS auditor.
ďBut we do not pay taxes,Ē the priest said.
ďIt isnít you, Father, itís one of your parishioner, Sean McCullough. He indicates on his tax return that he gave a donation of $15,000 to the church last year. Is this, in fact, the truth?Ē
The priest smiled broadly. ďThe check hasnít arrived yet, but Iím sure Iíll have it when I remind dear Sean.Ē
