The American IRS has been the schoolyard bully since its inception
originally as the Bureau of Internal Revenue back in the 19th century. They enjoy (and
I do mean enjoy) the power to hold absolute sway over people's lives under the threat
of crippling penalties and/or imprisonment. The IRS is an equal opportunity abuser,
regardless of one's nationality.
Of course your situation was brought on
by the ineptness of a trading company, but fundamentally it was due to the utterly ridiculous
regulations imposed upon businesses to file multiple forms in quadruplicate to various
government organizations. Hold onto your hat (if you wear one), because the clowns in
Congress here are about to greatly multiply the bureaucracy levels with the government
takeover of most or all of our financial institutions. The full benefit of government
efficiency and capability will soon be at the service of everyone - worldwide.
I suppose the only Hope for you and me is that Americans (the entire world, according
to new reports) just elected the Savior of the Earth as president, so just hold on,
help is on the way. The universe got better on November 4, 2008; chaos no longer rules;
the 1st law of thermodynamics has been suspended. In fact, if you can make it over here
to one of the Obama healing events - er, speeches - you can probably get your issue
resolved on the spot like the woman at a recent one who begged Him for a car and house,
and then was provided one (by a member of the other political party, BTW, and also,
we've learned that she hasn't bothered to work since 2003).
Sorry to unload,
but it probably adequately expresses both of our feelings about the ineptitude of governments,
and the habits of slackers.
That said, I will be glad to assist you in
contacting the IRS. If you e-mail me with the pertinent information, I will give them
Finally, I tried to contact you a couple times recently via e-mail.
