The English OLD has 21 sample sentences for “tangible,” meaning 
“perceptible by touch," each one of them as “almost tangible.” It seems 
odd to define a word that isn’t really used in any sample sentences.

On your form 1040 you will find stated that you do not pay taxes on "non-tangible religious benefits"
(or maybe the word is "intangible" or "untangible", I don't have a 1040 handy).
