IRS Notice - Common Frivolous Tax Arguments
Image via Wikipedia
I subscribe to alot of newsletters and I recieved one from the IRS just now that has a link to a great article debunking common tax arguments. Here's the link: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-utl/friv_tax.pdf . It's an 80 page .pdf document that has some funny arguments that are made to rationalize not paying taxes at all or in part.
With tax day coming up there are alot of misconceptions & water-cooler talk about what is factual. From reading the article it would seem better to rely on a tax professional, attorney etc. over the well intentioned and often wrong guesses & ideas of "the cousin of a guy I talked with".
