After sending Timmah a ZeroHedge t-shirt for winning quote of the day, Tyler Durden lit a joint and wondered if Timmah would wear it with his pajama bottoms when he played PPT.

Timmah!

"Turbo Tax" timmy said that?!?!?!

I was recently audited by the kind and considerate IRS. After the audit was done and all papers were signed (so they couldn't try to screw me anymore) I asked the agent and her supervisor (who was there in the room at the time to "accept" the audit findings) what they thought of "Turbo Tax Timmy", my exact words.

They both blushed and said nothing. It seems that at least within my local IRS shake down office and measured by the standards of the IRS even the agents are embarrassed by Timmy.

I'd bet a card carrying libertarian within the IRS is more rare than a day in the red at JPmorgue-in.

I was audited by the IRS a couple of years ago and it was a pure sham. I had a small business and that only thing the agent went through was my day trading activities and home deductions. I had a second home and my accountant had accidentally put it on the wrong line and another (no way to confirm if it really was an accident). The agent clearly did not understand stock trading as all she was able to do was try to reconcile the numbers at the bottom of the page. I tried to explain to her that the basis may not be found in that year and what she was doing was not valid. I provided her with a complete spreadsheet breakdown of all fees and basis. I even found my previous employer's notes about exercising options and employee stock purchase (I had transferred some of these into my brokerage). Long story short, she made threats to move all proceeds to income and yelled at me during the audit. I told her if she did not understand she should refer to their experts (they have specialists in financial products). I went to her manager and the territory manager to resolve it. 9 months later I had a $2k refund which I doubt she had ever had to give. These people in the 1040 and small business self employed (SBSE) are Gestapo plain and simple. Never give into their tactics. They work for us!

If you want the IRS audit enforcement division to crawl all over you like African fire ants, just put "self-employed general contractor" in the Profession box and file a Schedule C.

"They work for us!"

Thanks for the laugh.

So obviously /sarc/ that I blew a neuron before I got your drift.

 I have had some battles with them to and found that I was more knowledgeable then they were on a number of areas. I agree with you about not being afraid or giving into their intimidation techniques.

I had the displeasure of talking to the Idiot Recycling Service...

It took 5, yes 5 people to figure out they made a mistake. And for my competence, I get audited. FUCK YOU IRS!

the last time they came after a friend of mine with more than a feather, they sent her a billie douche that she had sold something so she must report to them about the proceeds and pay the taxes, and the clock wuz running on the penalties and "interest", of course.  so, i advised her to "respond" with a 16-pounder and two gatling gunz,  as per: what the FUK makes you think i made any "money" with the $50K "share" i cashed out for?  please do not hesitate to respond, in full, regarding any EVIDENCE you might have regarding my ongoin willingness to fuk you wunder-barz right where i hear your "voice" originates.  p.s. the dog ate my homework, again! pps  c'mon DOWN!,

would you believe she took my free advice, & that wuz the end of it?

don't be scared, my friendZ, just make sure ya know the local rules, OK? 

1)  check to make SURE you can see the gameboard correctly.

2)  NEVER "waive thyme", be a sage, sParsely, rosemary!

3)  put on BEST show they've ever seen, as per the Berrigan Bros.

4)  if you get conViC-ted, remember:  "don't do the crime, if ya can't do the time."

5)  try not to get "rendered" to, uh...Egypt, too, ok?
