Is this something I can put on my resume?

If so how do I do it without sounding like a douchebag

I just had business card-sized copies of my folks' tax returns made up. I clip them to my resume mailings, give them out at OCI, and just generally hand them out in social settings.

Do you think employers would be impressed to know I come from a well off family?

Like maybe if I can't fit it in my resume, would it be something you would try to force out in the interview?

Unless you can demonstrate how coming from a "well-off" family will bring in new business, employees could care less and may actually be somewhat discouraged by the prospect of perceived level of complacency.
