person who collects taxes
- There is one difference between a tax collector and a taxidermist — the taxidermist leaves the hide.
- Mortimer Caplin, American bureaucrat, Director of the IRS. Time magazine, (Feb. 1, 1963)
- If you drive a car, I'll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat,
If you get too cold, I'll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet.
‘Cos I'm the Taxman,
Yeah, I'm the Taxman.
