The taxman cometh

It may have a different name in your country, but I'm sure you'll understand when I say that this is my most hated building in Metro Manila. This is the head office of the Bureau of Internal Revenue, located in Quezon City.

Hahaha...I can imagine why you hate that...But surely the sky is something we can't hate for long.
Re:my post for SWF, it was taken early morning, and the sky was still grey.

il est pourtant beau cet immeuble,entouré de tout ce ciel bleu.
it is however nice this building, encircled with all this blue sky.

Abe said...

It is odd. Most people I know love to get checks from the Internal Revenue Service. LOL

Tee hee. Nobody likes the taxman, I'm afraid. But I sure wouldn't want to live without the things our taxes provide!

Nice sky! Your weather must be beautiful.

Lovely sky- ugly building! Our IRS building is despised as well- especially if (like me) you owe!!!

Who can love a building like that! Fortunately we have a great sky above all those obscenities!

Marc said...

It's not a very friendly looking building. Most of the commenters don't seem to like it either.

Lisa Wilson said...

The most hating building, HAHAHA!! It's not a bad-looking building! Love the sky. Have a great weekend.

Jacob said...

A government building, for sure. And nobody likes the tax people. Nice photo, Hilda!

uggh! taxes. In the US, tax day is April 15th, which is right around the corner. The sky is pretty but the building does look like a government building

bertN said...

You just reminded me that I have to start working on my tax returns!
It's a labor of hate LOL.

Tash said...

Hope the taxman did not take all. Gotta keep that building running after all. :)
Beautiful shot.

D said...

Yep, it's that time of year! This is a nice building, despite its purpose.

George said...

You've captured a wonderful sky picture, and the the building looks very nice. I can't imagine why you don't like it!!

Too funny. Oregon's Department of Revenue building has very few windows. Probably to protect the identities of the employees. Also, not a popular building here.

Neva said...

Same here...we all hate tax day!

Who wouldn't hate a government office that can't show where the people's money goes... lol...I forgot exactly where this is...We lived in Congressional btw.
