America's Funniest Tax Deductions
Bankrate.com | Submitted by: Crazy Quagga
"Then there was the client who approached Manhattan CPA Marc Albaum about a very personal tax matter. 'He had made some money being a sperm donor and wanted to know if he could take a depletion allowance,' Albaum recalls. 'I told him he really needed to be an oil well or something like that.'"
