IRS Tip of the Day
Here's a tip to the IRS.
I will gladly pay taxes to live in the greatest country on our planet. But for the love of all things good and green, could you possibly make it any harder to pay you? As a college graduate who owns a business, a house and a dog, I don't claim to be a genius, but I should be able to easily figure out how much money I owe. Instead, I have to resort to hiring a tax professional at my own expense. I'd try it myself, but if I make a mistake, you'll find me, steal said house and dog (and college degree) and put me in jail. So I just wanted to say I think it's mean. As a business owner, I doubt I'd have any clients if I made them fill out a form to calculate how much money they owed me. When you owe someone money, you should get an invoice from them. Plain and simple. So send me a frickin' invoice, and I'll pay your frickin' taxes.
P.S. When I call you to ask a question about your insanely difficult process, whatever you do, do NOT hang up on me. TWICE.
P.P.S. When I finally do get to talk to you, do me a favor and try to actually know the answer to my question. If you don't even know how your system works, how can I be expected to know?
