Everyone Pays Taxes

Even this person:
Belle de Jour can rest easy: her mum doesn’t mind that she worked as a call girl whose online diary became a literary phenomenon.

Dr. Brooke Magnanti, a research scientist working in Bristol, unmasked herself yesterday as the anonymous author behind the best-kept secret in modern literature. ...
An entry on the Belle de Jour blog website today ... took the opportunity to clarify her relationship with Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs department. “So much curiosity about my tax situation!” she wrote. “Yes, I did pay taxes on sex work earnings.”

I suspect her depreciation schedules would make me blush.
