Stimulus jockeying begins in earnest
A national tax amnesty is the answer

Real Taxpayers of Genius e-file

That's the message from Maryland tax officials.

Taking a cue from those great "Real Men of Genius" beer ads, the Old Line State tax office salutes Mr. Frustrated Taxpayer, who reduces his tax hassles by e-filing.

Maryland's tax advice YouTube spot incorporates the background quips theme of the Bud Light radio ad originals.

But despite the light-hearted presentation style, the Maryland video has a serious message. "Bringing humor to the otherwise stressful topic of doing taxes is one way we hope to grab people's attention," Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot said in a release.

The Maryland e-file video closes with Franchot appearing on screen to remind taxpayers that online filing is faster and easier than mailing in a return. And, as the video points out, no more paper cuts.
