cuidado


Explanation:
"Mind the geese" pode ser "cuidado com os" ou "cuide dos" (tome conta dos) gansos. Seria bom verificar o contexto.

o máximo de impostos com o mínimo de reclamações


Explanation:
Existem expressões como colocar a raposa para "tomar conta dos gansos" e outras com "cuidado com os gansos, eles podem correr atrás de você". Mas talvez você esteja querendo saber de aumento de impostos. O link abaixo explica a origem na França da expressão que significa "como tirar o máximo de impostos do cidadão com o mínimo de reclamações por parte deles", ou tirar o máximo de penas do ganso com o mínimo de barulho.

Espero que ajude

atenção aos gansos / cuidado com os gansos


Explanation:
sem saber o contexto em que a frase aparece é difícil se são gansos num parque ou lago ou se é o incauto cidadão que vai ser "depenado" ...
