    are many worse things than being in hock with the IRS. They are actually pretty helpful. Now the IC is a whole other story.

    I must end each day with a dose of Top Comments. A TC diary is a must for developing the calmness I need to get the required eight hours of sleep. - cohenzee

    •  Actually, I have been there (3+ / 0-)

      when I was younger and IRS was pretty ok. In fact, they could come down like a bomb and didn't. It took a while to get out from under, but every single person I ever dealt with at IRS seemed to be honestly trying to help us.

      But later, using a tax preparer when things were looking complicated again was a very smart move.

        help who is actually knowledgeable. You cannot believe how many CPAs have no idea how to do a return properly. I have fixed many in my career.

        As much as I want a simple, progressive tax code, I'd rather have a job. lol

          We lucked out when we got out of hock with IRS because the guy who finally fixed our issues used to work for IRS, so he was really knowledgable and did a great job. And it din't cost nearly as much as I though it would at the time.

          Thanks!
