I recently read that one taxpayer filled out his income tax forms using Roman numerals. He reported that IRS officials were not amused. Why am I not surprised?
The following are a couple of letters reportedly sent to the IRS once upon a time:
I would like to cancel my subscription. Please remove my name from your mailing list.
Enclosed is my 2018 tax return and payment of $3,407. Please note the attached newspaper article, which reported that the Pentagon paid $171.50 each for hammers and that NASA paid $600 each for toilet seats.
Enclosed are four toilet seats (value $2400) and six hammers (value $1029), for a total payment of $3,429. Please apply the extra $22 to the “Presidential Election Fund.”
It has been a pleasure paying my tax bill his year. Keep up the good work.
Note: The above letters are from sources deemed completely unreliable, and are specifically NOT recommended as appropriate methods of meeting one’s [seemingly ever growing] tax obligations.
