I said at the end of one paragraph:
"Upon a visit to the president, Herbert Hoover was asked by a reporter if he was going to resign. Hoover replied: "The wish is farthest from the fact." the same answer applies here."
It should have said:
"Upon a visit to the president, J Edgar Hoover was asked by a reporter if he was going to resign. Hoover replied: "The wish is farthest from the fact." The same answer applies here."

When I saw that sign on the wall (The IRS can not be held responsible for any advice received) THAT was when I asked why? The smiling response: regulations change constantly, some were changed or altered the same day received. The lady also said was why they followed the well-known publisher's printed guidelines because they were "more up-to-date." This gave them a unique document to follow and not a squid-like document from above like Jello sliding down the wall. It also gave them an out: They could simply state in a lawsuit that they followed a recognized authority on the subject. Lawyers tend to quote anything logical or has implied believability. Why? Anything to change the subject or shift focus in a lawsuit is a delay that adheres to the "live another day" principle.
My reason for going there was to ask a question about family law that the Great State of California' Franchise Tax Board refused to answer because it weakened their legal case by even considering it. So, they suggested I go to the IRS to get the answer. In case no one knows already, the CA Franchise Tax Board and the IRS are drinking buddies. Many questions on the tax form for CA refer to a line on the IRS/Federal form -- and vice versa... We are dealing with a snake with two heads here and they have all their greedy eyes on US.
We must not just get rid of the IRS; We must also get rid of state tax offices. Otherwise there must be tax reform that includes BOTH IRS and state tax law. Since this deals with the love of money and not only the operation of government, then good luck on that one! Upon a visit to the president, Herbert Hoover was asked by a reporter if he was going to resign. Hoover replied: "The wish is farthest from the fact." the same answer applies here.
Taxes were once a temporary thing that involved many people who were enthralled with all that money and their being paid to handle it. From then, while we slept the "taxers" sank their tentacles into America in such a way that massive surgery cannot remove the disease without leaving scars larger that life. This is how our past and present fearless leaders designed it.
Can we fix this without removing an arm or leg of government? Can we continue to stand? Can we even move? See what electing people to represent US has evolved? Does Washington really represent us? Is the world upside-down? Instead of them working for us, I feel that I am at the bottom or business end of the stick.

NoCrud, I think the line “IRS cannot be held liable for any advice received” tells us more than we want to know. My taxes are very simple, but I use a tax preparer as an effort to “cover my backside”. Call me a coward, but as a political activist all these years, I have found that the miscreants have a deep hatred for those who will expose their crimes. I had one national politician search for me for months after I exposed how he was using our tax dollars to make himself rich. It cost him his office, and he was not pleased.
LizMN I have been encouraged many times with your postings. We need to remember that there are many who do not have so much as a clue, and in spite of our best efforts there is not one of us who has all the answers, but as a cooperating group we become a formidable force and the miscreants scream.

I went to the IRS one time to get some help with a tax question. I learned that they used a published non-government guide for operating guidelines because "it is more up-to-date" since the government rules are changing constantly. I also noticed a sign that said that the IRS cannot be held liable for any advice received.
The only people who have no easy out of this mess are US. The giverment gives itself a pass -- and payraises at midnight before going on vacation.

@ LizMN -- thank you! It's so nice when we get confirmation that we ARE reading one another's comments! I thoroughly appreciate reading what others have to say -- even when I disagree with them.

Another fine article, Judi -- and probably months ahead of many other analysts, journalists, etc. who have yet to figure out what is going on in our nation.
JohnMinn, Chris D, Tea Party, Jim Lampe, Karen C, chief josef, Nina in MA, ruth, moonbeam, Diane -- I hope I didn't leave anyone out -- all had much to say -- and I agree. I am a member of Tea Party Nation. We have our work cut out for us and we will be succeed.

Intel Analyst, Just how much evidence do you need? How about the words from his own mouth? There are hundreds of examples out there. A rapist doesn’t tell others that he is a rapist, but by his deeds we know that the person is a rapist.
As to the crooked corporations which are but a very small percentage of the number of corporations out there. A crooked group CAN NOT survive without the aiding and abetting of government.
If that toilet called Washington DC is not flushed, you will end up as more of a slave to government that you already are.
IF DC wanted to clean up this tax mess, they would be pushing hard for tax reform such as is laid out in the fair tax bill. The ugly rich hide their incomes in various tax exempt funds which they own and operate and which pay all their living expenses. Here again, this could not exist IF DC truly wanted to clean up that tax puss hole but with the aid of government they keep up the charade.
The tax code is so complicated that even the IRS can not figure it out so small corporations must hire high dollar tax attorneys and HOPE that they don’t get stung. The cost of just following the tax code is estimated to cost small businesses Billions of dollars. On top of that you have all the time wasted doing paper work for your tax attorneys to work with. A straight forward tax code would put all of us on an even footing.
Corporations do not pay any taxes in reality, taxes are a cost of doing business and those costs are passed on to the consumer.

“Day of Rage” Obama re-election team in disguise?
Posted by Judi McLeod on Sep 16, 2011 at 09:01 PM
Marxists, ever ready to exploit the masses, are out to lunch on this one
Tomorrow’s “Day of Rage” in cities across the United States is doomed for certain failure because “Day of Rage” won’t resonate with average people.
“Bring your own tent!” is the message sent out to protesters on the social networks. Recession-bound people, some of whom are trying to move their families in with relatives, live in cars and sleep on park benches, not tents.
The poor forced to take to tents are not paid the least bit of attention by George Soros, and no one pays them to shout lofty chants like “Eat the Rich!” while standing around on Manhattan sidewalks.More...
