    Bob Shallit: IRS visits Sacramento carwash in pursuit of 4 cents - Sacramento Business, Housing Market News | Sacramento Bee

    In other words, the IRS is after every last penny of your taxes. Literally.

    I could see this as a new trick though. Pretend as though nothing is wrong for a few years, launch a random audit, and lookie here, a few pennies short and a bunch of penalties.

    Nothing you can do about it either. The IRS is always "right".

    If they proportionately applied their zeal and force to others with erroneous filings, Rangel would be serving a life sentence.

    Just sayin'.

    I was eating in McDonalds, a man and his son of about 4 years got a burger and a happy meal, the man put the 3 quarters change on the tray and went to a table, he then got up to wash his hands, and when he came back there was one quarter on the tray and his young child choking and tuning blue, he turn the kid upside down and gave him a slap on the back which dislodged one of the quarters, but the kid was still choking, the guy shouted for help, a well dressed preppy lady stood up, walked over, dropped the boys pants and started to squeez the boys balls, harder and harder until he coughed up the quarter, the father was so happy the women had saved his son, he asked are you a doctor or something? you sure knew how to extract that quarter,



    she said ¨No I'm from the IRS¨

    Well the IRS ain't getting my 2 1938 -S pennies with TWO S's on them, one large and one small......well, unless they cut a sweet deal with me of course.

    But it really makes sense ......... to them somehow but certainly NOT COMMON sense, spend thousands pursuing 4¢ just to make a point. :cuckoo:
