Several days ago I wrote a post linking to comments by the Commissioner of the IRS predicting a miserable tax filing season coming up because they don’t have enough money to hire enough people to answer the phone. I pointed out that they seem to have enough money to give bonuses of cash and time off to employees who don’t pay their taxes.
I should have also noted that the Taxpayer Bill of Rights, adopted by the IRS less than six months ago, lists as right #2: “The Right to Quality Service.” That promise is no longer operative, I guess.
Some promises seem to have a pretty limited shelf life these days. Or as the Instapundit puts it, they seem to always have an expiration date.
The contents of this blog, this web site, and any writings by me that are linked here, are all my personal commentary. None of it is intended to be legal advice for your situation.
