WASHINGTON (WNEW) — A man has been taking selfies of himself for proof to the Internal Revenue Service.
The man looked at the tax laws and learned that in order for him to avoid being taxed by New York, he would only be allowed to live in the city 182 days or less out of the year.
To prepare for any future disputes against his living arrangement, he decided to take selfies as a way to prove to the IRS that he spends more time in Philadelphia than in New York.
His daughter, Anne Jarvis, discovered the time-stamped selfies on her father’s camera and decided that they should be shared with the world so she created an Instagram account called Internalrevenueselfies.
“My dad is the kind of guy who reads the rules of a board game from front to back before embarking on playing the game,” his daughter told Mashable. “He cares about facts, practicality, rules, and integrity.”
Many of the pictures feature him underneath the commuter train marquee or with the daily newspapers in hand.
For further proof, he also collects receipts from his day-to-day transactions.
