My favourite one came from a client who I sacked three months before his tax deadline due to the grief he gave me.
When his new accountant didn't file his tax on time he emailed me the penalty letter asking me "what the hell was he supposed to do with this?" Um give it to your accountant...
The other classic if someone has a high profit and tax bill on their accounts through the growth of the business is "How can we include more expenses to get this bill down?". "Of course there are lots of expenses that I've left out but now you've asked I'll put them in for you" is the response I stop myself saying every time.
