Movie Info

LOVE & TAXES is a riveting comic tale of seven years of tax avoidance. Following the possibly real-life exploits of Josh Kornbluth, an autobiographical monologist, Love & Taxes is a comedy that blends solo performance and scripted scenes to bring the subjective reality of the storyteller hilariously to life. Despite working for a high-powered tax attorney, Josh -- who, for his whole life, has been clinging to his red-diaper-baby, fringe identity -- hasn't filed his taxes in seven years. But when his boss persuades him to join the system, almost mystically things start going well for Josh. His performing career takes off, his solo shows are "optioned" by major Hollywood studios, he and his brother Jake decide to make movies together - and he meets the woman of his dreams, Sara. But while Sara wants Josh to join society and take care of his debts, Josh isn't paying attention to his finances, and has fallen for the manipulations of an unscrupulous tax lawyer, who now might own the rights to his and his brother's film. Josh soon finds himself broke: his tax-avoidance problems have ballooned into a tax nightmare that threatens all of the great new things in his life. LOVE & TAXES is a middle-aged coming-of-age story that is also, quite possibly, the first ever pro-tax romantic comedy. Above all, Love & Taxes is the perfect comedy for our troubled political times.

"Love & Taxes" is an odd little title for an odd little movie, and yet it delivers exactly what it promises. And in an entertaining way.

March 16, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The movie's wryly optimistic tone, Woody Allen-esque flights of fancy and enjoyable cast ... make for a fun concoction.

Watching "Love & Taxes," you feel as if you're witnessing a life presented without much filter. It's Kornbluth's willingness to revel in what a screw-up he is that carries you along.

If there aren't many big laughs here, there are enough smiles to make the time pass pleasantly enough.

As a writer, Kornbluth is vivid, funny and skilled at conveying characters, qualities he actually matches in performance.

I'd recommend going back and checking out Haiku Tunnel, and, if you enjoy it, then rush out and see Love & Taxes.
