During a January 2011 interview, Oprah Winfrey was asked by Piers Morgan if she feels pain writing checks for over $100,000.

Oprah replied:

The most pain I feel – my accountants will tell you this – every time I write a check to the IRS. It’s a ceremony. They come in – for years they came in with wine – now they come in with tequila.”

Oprah has also spoken out against the Death Tax:

“I think it’s so irritating that once I die, 55 percent of my money goes to the United States government…You know why it’s so irritating? Because you already paid nearly 50 percent when the money was earned.” 

Time to endorse the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, Oprah?
