A Taxing Situation
7 February 2018 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

Peter's (Michael Callan) boss Mr. Brahms (Jack Collins) is having his accountant do the employees taxes. He'll be forced to claim his assumed wife Greta (Patricia Harty) as a dependent, thus committing fraud. Peter draws the suspicion of the accountant Mr. Hanes (Oscar-nominated composer Frank De Vol, "The Brady Bunch"). Mr. Brahms throws a return signing party at Peter's workplace. Peter takes his return home, but Mr. Brahms follows him to check on a supposedly sick Greta. Cornered, she has no choice but to sign and Mr. Brahms mails the return. With a lengthy jail sentence on their doorstep, they must take action. Peter and Greta go to the IRS pretending to be a Hollywood writing team gathering information on a movie plot that is the same as their situation. They learn their fate is more grim than they thought and face an uphill battle to clear themselves.
