Storyline

Despite the fact they've been on Earth for about three years now, the Solomons have never filled in the annual IRS forms and therefore Dick asks Mary to help them. She calculates they owe the IRS 9,500 dollars. When looking at the numbers again, the Solomons think up the idea to lie on their forms so they'll receive money instead of having to pay. Unfortunately for them, the IRS doesn't trust it and announces they'll audit the Solomons. This makes them terrified. They think the IRS will find out they are aliens.

Quotes

Dr. Dick Solomon: [Dick is getting highly frustrated trying to fill out his tax form] I don't understand this! I'm a superior being. I can calculate the decaying orbit of a dying moon to within a tenth of an inch, why can't I calculate the subtotal of Line 59?
