IRS: Income Reduction Service strikes again!

2 IRS agents @ $20/hour = $40

Gas for the government car = $20

Cost to print the letter = $1

Cost of the IRS Spokesperson = $60

Amount owed to the IRS = 4 pennies

Wasting taxpayers’ funds = PRICELESS

Long story short: IRS agents visit a Sacramento business to collect 4 pennies (you read correctly, 4 pennies) in back taxes since 2006.  The penalties and interest on the 4 cents ballooned to $202.35!  If ever there was a reason to remove the IRS from the pockets of the American people, this is it.  A normal business interested in profits, generating additional revenue, expanding business and, eventually, hiring more people would have written off the 4 pennies in 2006!

But no!  The IRS in its infinite stupidity and blissful ignorance incurred at least $120 in expenses to collect 4 cents.  Obviously, this was not a profitable trip.  It gets better.  The IRS put the taxpayer into the red by 99.967% to collect this money that they will promptly redistribute.

IRS & Tax quotes along with intriguing video about the income tax…

The question is: What can we, as citizens, do to reform our tax system? As you know, under our three-branch system of government, the tax laws are created by: Satan. But he works through the Congress, so that’s where we must focus our efforts. ~ Dave Barry

Take a look at these videos from a former IRS Sherry Peel Jackson agent:

Part 1 of 2:

If we don’t do something to simplify the tax system, we’re going to end up with a national police force of internal revenue agents.  ~Leon Panetta

Part 2 of 2:

People try to live within their income so they can afford to pay taxes to a government that can’t live within its income.  ~Robert Half
