“Dear IRS, Please take me off your mailing list.” Charlie Brown

leave a comment »

In a famous Charlie Brown cartoon,
Charlie is sitting at a typewriter
pecking out a letter saying,
“Dear IRS,
Please take me off your mailing list.”

About 20,000 taxpayers will be on
the IRS’s randomly selected mailing
list soon BUT THAT’S NOT A BAD
THING!

These 20,000 letters from the IRS
are not letters to be feared because
they are not audit notices.

WHAT ARE THEY?

Those 20,000 envelopes contain
surveys that ask taxpayers to
estimate how much time and money
you spend on matters relating to
complying with income tax requirements
— recordkeeping, tax planning, tax
return preparation, etc., etc.

An additional 24,000 surveys will go to
‘business’ filers such as corporations
and partnerships.

WHY THE SURVEYS?

Be assured that the reason is NOT that
the IRS cares.

My guess is that there is a Congressional
committee that wants to simplify the current,
outrageous tax system, and they have the
IRS collecting proof of how onerous the
current, convoluted, unmanageable Tax
Code is, so that it can be simplified.

WHAT SHOULD YOU TO DO IF
YOU GET ONE OF THESE SURVEYS?

1. Do not ignore it. This is YOUR chance
to help do something about tax simplification.
Here’s how…

2. When estimating the time it takes YOU
to comply with the outdated, overly-complex,
unfair tax reporting requirements do NOT
under-estimate the time tax it takes you
to deal with it. I’m not suggesting you
‘exaggerate’ the time it takes you; I’m just
saying…

3. When filling out the questionnaire,
remember the purpose of this exercise —
to provide proof that our tax system needs
to be overhauled and simplified.

If YOU get one of those 20,000 surveys,
please take the time help provide that
“proof.”

It is rare that an individual taxpayer gets
the chance to “weigh-in” on the important
and overdue need to simplify the Tax Code,
but 44,000 individuals and small business
will get that chance soon.

Don’t waste your chance to “vote.”

Now, THAT’s a “Tax Tip You Can Bank On!”

Helping THOUSANDS to SAVE a BUNDLE,
