The IRS is going after this little guy
“I have been following the FAIRtax for going on 15 years, or so I think. I have always been behind it, not financially, because I barely have enough to live off of, thanks in part to the IRS. I decided to tell you my story.
“I have never made very much money; $20,000 or so is the most I have ever reported. With three kids and a wife, my tax refunds have pretty much been capped every year.
“For a few years, I tried to have my own business, which IRS taxes made it nearly impossible. One year I had worked for a local grocery store chain called Publix. After leaving Publix, I got a check for the sale of stock which they had given me and which was sold upon my leaving. The check was for about $500.
“I neglected to remember to put this on my return, which was accepted by the IRS. A few years later, I got a notice saying I owe the IRS thousands of dollars for this neglect. My return was triggered after several years because I didn't put any business expenses on my return even though I would have no tax liability with expenses on it because I file a standard deduction.
“I had to hire an accountant to convince the IRS it was a simple oversight, pay some fees to IRS and the accountant fees. This amounted to almost exactly the $500 I had originally received for my hard work.
“The IRS thought my oversight was worth their attention instead of the billions of dollars the rich try to scam. So, I am sure to tell everyone I can about the FAIRtax.
“On that note, is there any way I can get ahold of business cards to easily let others know about The FAIRtax?”
To answer Braegen’s question about business cards, one can go to the FAIRtax Store at: https://fairtaxstore.org/printed-materials/. Mike Simmons at email@example.com will take care of you. If you want customized business cards, you will need to order them from a printer and run your proposed design by Randy Fischer, firstname.lastname@example.org. Randy needs to know what's out there if you plan to use the FAIRtax logo. Randy turns requests around quickly.
I would love to hear from you if you have an IRS story like Braegen’s.
