Death Versus Taxes

April 12, 2010 ( – It has been famously said that there is nothing certain but death and taxes.

According to a recent survey from Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America (Allianz), most people surveyed (51%) indicated that attending a funeral is their least enjoyable activity, surpassing those who ranked paying taxes as their least favorite (21%).        

But, as bad as paying taxes is, it still came in behind visiting the dentist (23%) – though well ahead of visiting the in-laws (5%).

Assuming, of course, that their in-laws aren’t dentists.
