What kind of taxpayer are you?

The Office

Amazon.com’s tax software page features some of our favorite characters from The Office. It’s actually pretty well written — when you click each character’s profile, don’t forget to scroll all the way down to the “How You’ll Want to Spend Your Refund” section — it’s hilarious!

  1. Niiice. Those were great. I especially loved the “How you’ll want to spend your tax refund” part. Spot on. Somebody over at Amazon knows their stuff.

  2. Funny stuff like this proves that “The Office” is firmly woven in to the fabric of our everyday life. Thanks for posting this!

  3. Maria, I thought the same exact thing. No way Angela would file an extension. In fact, she probably thinks doing taxes are fun.

  4. They made a mistake with Jim! Andy didn’t punch a hole in the wall from seeing his calculator suspended in Jell-O! He kicked the trash can in that instance. The hole in the wall was from the cell phone in the ceiling prank. Otherwise, the description was great.

  5. Yeah, so stuff like this further emphasizes how much I miss this show. Errors aside it was pretty funny and obviously written by a fan of the show. Just maybe not as obsessed as, say, an OTer. ;)

    Oh, and The Boy With No Name is an amazing album.

  6. I agree with Angela not being an extender, but still brought a smile to my face reading it. Nice job on Amazon’s part for creating this fun cross-over, even if there are some inconsistencies.

  7. Great! Looks like Amazon’s got some major Office geeks somewhere. However, I agree that Angela would not file an extension. She and Dwight probably used to work on their taxes together.

  8. I would like to see how Michael would do his taxes, but I guess he doesn’t do them at all? Haha. Great find!

  9. Memo to Past Dwight: Amazon will begin selling a guide to “Middle Earth” after 2002. Sell the beet farm and invest in Amazon.com now, despite the fact that they don’t currently sell Bo-Staffs.


    PS – I always knew Halpert was a chronic procrastinator.

  10. That was hilarious! Even with the few errors, it looks like whoever wrote this is a fan! I’d be curious to know see what the other Office folks would spend their refund on, too.

  11. This just made my day, after a few dreary hours stuck at work. :o)
    Thanks for posting this, whoever did that is obviously a fan.
    And I agree- Angela would definitely not file an extension.

  12. At first I agreed with the Angela not being late theory. However, let’s not forget that Dwight had to take whatever it was to NYC because she forgot to take it in. Can’t remember the details, but it just proves that Angela could potentially get distracted by outside factors and need to file for an extension. Either that or she thinks it’s SO much fun that she wants to do taxes for as long as she possibly can. That was long, I’m done now.
