    Because it's 'I thank you' and not 'I thanks you'.

    As George M. Cohen would reply:
    "I thank you, my sister thanks you, and my parents thank you."

    Apart from "I thank you" :
    singular person - use 'thanks' - my cousin thanks, my uncle thanks you
    persons in the plural -use 'thank' - my cousins thank you, my aunts thank you.
