Default Letter to the IRS by Ed Barnett

http://www.rightpundits.com/?p=3435

Quote:
Dear IRS,

I’m sorry to inform you that I’m not going to be able to pay the taxes owed on April 15th, but all is not lost.

I paid these taxes:

accounts receivable tax,
building permit tax,
CDL tax,
corporate income tax,
dog license tax,
federal income tax,
unemployment tax,
gas tax,
hunting license tax,
fishing license tax,
waterfowl stamp tax,
inheritance tax,
inventory tax,
liquor tax,
luxury tax,
Medicare tax,
city tax,
school and county property tax up to 33% the last four years.
Real estate tax,
Social Security tax,
road use tax,
toll road tax,
state and city sales tax,
recreational vehicle tax,
sales franchise tax,
state unemployment tax,
federal excise tax,
telephone tax,
telephone federal state and local surcharge tax,
telephone minimum usage surcharge tax,
telephone state and local tax,
utility tax,
vehicle tax,
registration tax,
capital gains tax,
lease severance tax,
oil and gas assessment tax,
Colorado property tax,
Texas, Colorado, Wyoming, Oklahoma, Mexico sales tax

and many more I can’t recall and I’ve run out of space and money.

When you do not receive my check April 15th, just know that it was an honest mistake.

Please treat me the same as the way you’ve treated Congressmen Charlie Rangel, Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, ex-congressman Tom Daschle and, of course, your boss, Timothy Geithner.

No penalties, no interest.

PS, I’ll make at least a partial payment as soon as I get my stimulus check.

Ed Barnett, Wichita Falls.

I wonder what would happen if millions upon millions of us sent letters like this to the IRS...

Obama would create a stimulus bill that would create an agency that found, prosecuted, and imprisoned all the average Joe's who didn't pay their taxes...

I think that's great!

I'll probably be having to use the jail computer, too, as I claimed all of my cigarette taxes paid for 2008 on my state income tax return. The way I look at it is - PA has made us lepers and has banned smoking basically anywhere but your own house and car but tax the living shit out of us. Non smokers are benefitting from the taxes I pay as are those who enacted this law, so I want every dime I paid in cigarette tax refunded. Screw 'em.
