* In ''{{Film/Zootopia}}'' an uncooperative Nick Wilde proudly boasts that every single scam he pulls is completely legal, refuses to help Officer Judy Hopps in an ongoing investigation that he's partially involved in, and tells her to take a hike. Her response? [[CaughtOnTape She'd recorded him gloating about all the undeclared income he's made in his life]], and compares it with his tax records ($0 declared income over twenty years). [[OhCrap It's the]] ''[[OhCrap one]]'' [[OhCrap thing that instantly breaks through his cocky demeanor.]]

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': This is how Judy recruits Nick in helping her in her case. He proudly boasts that every single scam he pulls is, to her frustration, completely legal and even proudly boasts how much he makes every day. She then gets him by noting that if hes been making $200 dollars a day for 20 years, he hasn't declared any of it, which is a felony. He is horrified.

* Averted in Lobo "Death and Taxes". He solves the problem with violence as usual.
* One issue of ComicBook/MarvelAdventures has the Avengers make a bargain with the tax man to waive their back taxes (mostly Wolverine's, who has never paid taxes in his life) in return for rounding up tax dodgers and making ''them'' pay their taxes.

* In an issue of ''The Astonishing Comicbook/AntMan'', a group of veteran villains tell the new Magician that he's going to need a good accountant if he's gonna be a supervillain. Hijacker even says the only thing scarier than Comicbook/ThePunisher is the IRS.

* ''Series/TheRickMercerReport'' did a short segment called "[[GroinAttack Knee in my Package]]'' (a parody of the Capital One ads) reminding all Canadians that it's tax season, and that they'd better pay up, or else the CRA[[note]]Canadian Revenue Agency[[/note]] is coming for them.

* GaiaOnline's Ivan the Tax Man started out playing this trope straight, introducing [[RandomlyDrops Chance Items]] he'd repossessed from unusual entities, and threatening to repo the ShopKeeper [=NPCs=]' stores as part of the "Save Our Shops" event. However, he [[EnsembleDarkhorse became unexpectedly popular with the fans]], and has since become a more sympathetic character.
