    Taxes! … Last week I picked up Turbotax and worked on my business records for 4 straight evenings before I learned the April deadline had been moved to May 17th!

    If post-modernists, or anyone else for that matter, will argue that IRS is that part of our socio-economic construct that forces us to abandon childhood and attempt to grow up to become an(other) economic unit rather than a human being – i will readily agree with them no matter what the consequences.

    Unless you make well into the six figures your actual chance of an audit is almost zero, NPR reported a few months ago that the IRS is stymied, over the last decade Congress has slashed their budget by 20%, their workforce has shrunk by 20% and their computer system is antiquated…this for an agency which actually makes money for the government, maybe Congress is inept, ya think?

    How one views life is all about perspective. You see the good and beauty in things and you find positivity or you expect the worst and usually somehow find it. That being said, doing your taxes is always below average no matter how you spin it….?

    We do ours as soon as we get our W-2 forms. . .that is, my sister and Turbo Tax does ours. . .this is when it’s “good” to be poor. . .we usually have our refund by the end of February—just in time to pay our home owners’ insurance. . .

    You know, I wonder if being an IRS auditor is a desirable job. I am not being mean, maybe a little snarky, but for real. Where does the IRS recruit. What are the benefits? Does it pay well? …odd thoughts, mine.

    One of my fav literary characters was in a Douglas Adams novel. A guy who hated rain, but it was always raining around him. He knew every different kind of rain there was and all he wanted to do was get away from it. Turns out he was a rain god and didn’t know it. The rain loved him and was always showing its love.

    Progressives ‘gave us’ the income tax so the citizens would fund their big government programmes; Wiley ought not complain. But you have to love the honesty in the naming of the IRS: the IRS ‘services’ the taxpayer as a bull ‘services’ a cow.

    Husband does our taxes. A few years ago we got IRS notice that we owed about $10,000. Husband said we did not owe any money. IRS notices kept arriving, now we owed more because of late fees and interest. Husband wrote them letters of explanation. Then we got a letter that said OK, we only owed $150. I was thrilled. Husband said no we didn’t owe them anything and wrote more letters. Finally we went to a local IRS office and talked to the person there, who checked and eventually agreed that we did not owe anything and asked my husband to please not send any more letters.

    I am so glad I’m too poor, and too old, to worry about the I.R.S. anymore. Besides, I haven’t even lived in the U.S. since I fully retired 9 years ago.

    Did Wiley Miller try to offset all of his income with pen and ink costs again? You’d think he’d learn.

    I have had one audit when I started a home based business and wanted to take a percentage of the floor space used as a home office. The agent had me there for over an hour including wanting information about other things.

    At the end it turned out that I used the wrong self-employed home form, and also I was able to show him a contradictory redundancy in another form that had been inserted for the first (and last) time. He didn’t apologize but started entering some numbers and unforgettably said:

    “OK, it looks like you are due a $51 additional refund. That should cover your time here.”

    It was at that moment that I thought:

    Are there any real rules to this game and how can I learn them? The Tax Code sure doesn’t seem to matter considering that at first there was an attempt to intimidate me and I ended up walking out with a two drink good meal in hand. His last remark was strangely comical:

    “You know when I got this one on my desk, I thought wow have I got a good one today.”

    Apparently these guys keep some type of scorecard for themselves or among themselves. Working for better and fairer government? Yeah sure. As much as your elected officials do.
