an IRS agent explains…

10 Sep

What people don’t understand about my job is that chances are you are not the person I’m examining.
I examine doctors who expense three Cadillacs, insurance brokers who claim jet skis for business use only,
and real estate agents who haven’t paid taxes in eight years. The public doesn’t realize that tax auditors are
the only people between a balanced effective tax rate among all social classes and the bourgeoisie stealing
what isn’t bolted down.
Don’t kid yourself; these people are stealing from you.
