RE: this is exactly how anyone who get audited should respond..... lets just see if what is good for the goose if good for the gander
Unfortunately the IRS doesn’t tolerate wise guys.
They will make your audit as painful as they can if you respond with that and you can’t do a damn thing about it.
The only solution is to find a way to abolish this agency and replace it with an agency that purely collect taxes without the power to audit your life.
Which is what a national sales tax does.
I agree the IRS is too powerful. But,the great difficulty with the so-called Fair Tax (the national sales tax you hope for) is that all purchases will go offshore to non-sales tax enitities. It is the problem states are fighting right now and cannot seem to find a solution. And, imagine the customers of the company you work for no longer buying from domestic companies, but rather everything on-line and off-shore...
This is so over the line I struggle for composure.
Permanent furloughs for about 90% of this cancerous bureaucracy are in order.
IRS and EPA are the top of my personal list.
