A few years ago I filed my income tax return on time as usual. A week after I filed, I received a 1099 from one of my savings accounts. Oh my God, I forgot to claim $90.00 of interest. What do I do? I did what most law-abiding citizens of the USA would do, I filed an amended return. My mind was at ease, I began to sleep well again.
A month later, I received a notice from the dreaded IRS. The letter proclaimed that I had not claimed $90 of interest from a bank account. Also, they listed about six other infractions from earlier years which they said I had not claimed. None of them were over $25.00.
What amazed me was the detail of their claims and the speed with which they were able to make the claims. The other part that amazed me more was they totally ignored my amended claim.
The IRS demanded I clear up the matter immediately or they would go after me for the “many” infractions they had listed. Being scared-to-death about a life in prison for ninety dollars, I also forgot about the amended claim and complied. I sent them the documentation requested and the fine they said I owed.
A month later I received acknowledgement of my amended claim. This was totally separate from their threatening letter demanding action on my part. Who the hell is in charge? Frankly folks, I will ignore any new demands the IRS makes of me. I will sooner have the satisfaction of them coming to take my over mortgaged house and me with it than to give in to these mindless, emotionless, and soulless bureaucrats. I can hardly wait for Obama-Care to kick in so I can have some fun with them.
Change the scene. A few weeks ago I listened to a news report of one Harry Reid (pictured above) making a claim that Mitt Romney has not paid his taxes. Are you kidding me? There is no way in hell the IRS is going to let anyone get away with not paying taxes. This is just an example of how far out of touch with reality that Senator Harry Reid from the good State of Nevada is.
The only people who will buy that Kool Aid are the ones who don’t pay taxes and believe it is the moral obligation of those who do to pay more. Harry Reid is a soldier for the Progressive movement and will kiss his commander’s ass at any opportunity. This time he missed and hit a new mark. The black hole sucked his dumb head right into where it belongs.
