Too bad you are “Freghtened”. If you actually knew anything about representing folks at an audit, you would understand that the so-called “compliance officer’s” quote is a figment of your imagination. There is no conspiracy, there is no grassy knoll, there is no change in tactics. You are a fear-monger who is stirring trouble. Your guy probably had a $ 12K AGI because he wrote off a lot of start-up stuff in the first year (perhaps too much???) and in the prior years had $ 250K AGI. Go back to H & R Block and fix your RALs & RACs.
Just curious... the compliance officer is clearly quoted in the story, not off the top of the OP’s head. Also, curious as to what an RAC is, refund anticipitory... what?
I anticipate IRS trouble this year, and would like nothing better than to believe it will all be OK, but the Times’ story has me also frightened, as does the expweience of the OP as a seasoned preparer.
Encourage, heck even comfort me, please...
Is your last name Axelrod? Your post is so idiotic it doesn’t deserve any further response than what I just gave you.
