IRS Agent attackd by a monkey?? Was he being audited? :-)
Ok, well, this makes me a feel a LITTLE better about all the billions of dollars that the IRS just took from all of us... just a little bit
Hurrah for the IRS! They just made a lot of money and I am super happy for them... wait a minute, they made that money off of us... off of ME... and the government employees alone owe how much???

I am so glad that the IRS has a new purpose of tracking down and punishing scum bags.... now if they would just stop going after all the non-scum bags too! Oh well, at least this is progress...,1,838181.story?ctrack=2&cset=true

Look, call me crazy but ONLY 1.3 million people will be audited this year? Why does this not sound like a small number to me?

Huh, thanks for the reassurance, IRS... I feel a lot better now...
Ok, I am a forward thinking girl and I am all about progress in this digital age... BUT... I am confounded by TurboTax's recent issues. WHY were their servers overwealmed exactly?? There were lots of last minute filers and WHY was this a surprise??

Yes, this is a very convenient option for tax payers but nothing beats your regular, run-of-the-mill in-person (sometimes panic attack) meeting with an accountant. Lets face it, tax season is scary and we all need a shoulder to cry on, not software.

Anyway, I am glad it all worked out.

As April 17th fast approaches, we can all learn from Joe Francis' mistakes... well, the tax one, at least...

FINALLY! The IRS is finally listening to me! Yes, yes, go for Joe Francis, the prolific founder of the "Girls Gone Wild" empire for his $20 million in phony business expenses... not the little people who have very little money to begin with. For once, BRAVO IRS, there is hope for us all...

Though this blog is dedicated to the cause of empowering people to fight IRS audits, my other favorite topic is credit card debt (yes, I am a blast at dinner parties)... be sure to read the below article. Just as none of us can truly ever escape the IRS, none of us are immune to credit card debt either and it looks like the government likes it that way.

There is something about taxes that makes all of us live in fear, even the most savvy person crumbles when receiving an envelope from the IRS. I ask, is this really necessary? I think not...

Anyway, the below article by Michelle Singletary addresses this fear and speaks to those of you (you know who you are) who seem to think that they can fly beneath the IRS' radar... read this article carefully, it is not worth dodging the IRS in the end.

What is that noise you hear, you ask? It is the increase of people being audited crying out in anger! Yes, folks, audits are on the rise... in a big way...
Below is a helpful article that explains the audit process and why more people are being audited now. Be careful, do not let this article set your mind at ease just yet. Be vigilant and ready for whatever the IRS might send you (especially since you usually only have 10 days to respond via mail).
