IRS visits Sacramento carwash in pursuit of 4 cents

63 posts in this topic

I was in NY for a short period of time. I got a letter in the Mail from NY State telling me I owed NY Tax money...LMAO. I was dumbfounded! I'm still fighting with them to get the "Final Resolution" paper work sent to me seeing how I'm a NC resident and yes paid all my NC taxes.

Just making sure. Most of the hate on here is directed towards the federal government. People rarely complain about state gov's having too much power around here.

I don't know how it is down in the Carolinas, but up here NYS is a beast when it comes to unpaid taxes. They're incredibly aggresive and have no problems putting chains on the doors of any business that owes them money.

I can't speak for others, but to me, any "hate" is more disillusionment from our rather rapid departure from the bottom-up concept to a top-down sytem of "rule".

To put it another way, the Bill of Rights and assorted other documents did not, as an example, spell out the rights given to us by the government, but rather gave us built-in safeguards from what the gubmint could take from us, these selfsame rights.

The overall focus has gone astray. The government is no longer a concept of by the people and for the people but rather a monstrosity that rules rather than does our bidding.

At least as a concept. :D

For me personally, its form, be it State, Federal, Local, whatever is meaningless. At this point it still represents too much and excess.

The pointy tip of the spear of this excess and overspending is, well, your institution. So as much as I enjoy my roads, military protection, etc. those lovely things come with a whole lot more.

I don't remember ever personally attacking you, in fact I'm quite sure I didn't since I tend to avoid internet toughguy garbage. But I'm sure you have been to parties and have mentioned who you work for and have had more than a few eyebrows raise, right?

So a normal social eyebrow raise, translated to the internet, becomes, well, the crap you have clearly had to put up with.

Sorry, but you can hardly be surprised.

I'm just happy I haven't had anyone PM me a picture of their choppers yet.

*shudders*

I might leave.

No, I probably wouldn't.:P

I was under no disillusionment when I started working for the IRS. Tax collectors aren't the most popular people out there and I know that. There are a lot of stories out there about how the IRS is evil, corrupt, will take everything you own without warning, etc, that perpetuate the negativity towards the IRS. While most of these stories aren't true, people still believe it because the IRS has been the boogeyman of the government for so long (I'm looking at you venom and chucktown). People refuse to believe that the IRS can be friendly because of people like Ron Paul and Aaron Russo that spread misinformation to mentally vulnerable people. It's unfortunate, but I understand.

And in person, I've never really had anybody get pissy with me because I work for the IRS, surprisingly. I've been razzed by friends and family, of course, but nothing big. Usually, though, I just say I'm an investigator for the treasury department and that is usually good enough.

A smart guy like you could find another job once we go to a flat tax, right? ;)

I wouldn't imagine anybody would get "pissy" with you over your job. Most likely just, as I stated, an eyebrow raise. It isn't wise to anger the "tax man"/boogeyman. :D
